Roadside Blacksmith & Carpenter in India

Beauty sometimes can be found in small & sudden things. Thus happened with me and I shot below two short documentaries, viz Roadside Blacksmith in India and Roadside Carpenter in India, both are taken in my city – Rajkot.

Both are taken on different days, in the year 2009. They were taken without any pre-plan. I was going somewhere and saw them so I stopped and shot their video clips.

For people living in India, this might be a routine stuff, but for friends living in other countries, this can be something they would call typical INDIAN 🙂

    Thank you for the interesting videos. I have mentioned your website and shared the blacksmithing video on our site, Skillstourism.com.au

    We are a tour company that provides a skills based holiday in India where people can learn traditional crafts like blacksmithing. It is important that traditional crafts and arts be learned and supported. Thank you for doing your part to bring awareness to these crafts.
