'I am Gunin Das and I run 'Bamboo Craft' here. My elder brother was the pioneer for bamboo arts in the state and I have been working with him since 1983.

We work with villagers all around and sell our work across most big Indian cities. I live here in the village now and manage this work.

My kids? My daughter is a TV star and my son is an Assemese movie actor. They were never interested in this work and followed their passion in life. I am very happy for them both.'

I am in a small town called Dhupguri near Balavita in #Assam. Unknown to many, the village is the hub of bamboo crafts in the state.

Stay tuned for #bamboo stories in the posts ahead :)

'My dream is to become an architect and eventually have my own architectural practice. They say that it's an architect's ego to think that they can single-handedly change the world for the better. Well as for me, I wouldn't say I want to change the world. Inspire would be a better term.'

siddharthajoshi I am not in favour of rickshaws like this one, but my childhood is full of 'rickshaw' memories; including an accident in a hospital in #Kanpur when it toppled and took us all down with it :)

siddharthajoshi It had rained the previous night, but thankfully the morning (this is around 5am) was not as wet.

As I walked in the lanes of Lakhtokia laced with my camera as my arsenal, this man called me and asked for a portrait.

I happily agreed. He went off to sleep right after I walked away...

siddharthajoshi Lord #Hanuman is an integral part of all Ahkaras, though it may not be the case with Muslim dominant Akharas.

I know it's a very popular game in #Pakistan as well. Does anyone know if faith is an element of the sport there as well?

siddharthajoshi Most practice sessions are a mix of demonstrations and actual fight.

The coach here demonstrates the moves to his students.
