The Basket weaver

This shot essentially signifies the moment that a mother while taking care of tender child, is doing some handicraft such as weaving baskets for primary use of storage food grains in the harvest season. During this season of new harvest, this tribal people draw hand made artworks on the earthen floor of their dwelling houses. The main ingredients of the materials used for such artworks are fine dust of pulses and vegetable dyes. Noteworthy to say the women folk of this tribal village prepare baskets during this festival season which is known as "Bandhna"
