If you ever visited the Exhibition from the back, you would know there is a small lane that has many families housed in bamboo shacks. In fact, the entire lane is lined with bamboo sticks and people making various things out of bamboo.


In this age of eco-friendly living, the bamboo craftspeople have their hands full with work. Everyone in the lane works with bamboo and makes interesting and user-friendly stuff. For most of them, it is an art that has been passed across generations, and many kids start early.


However, almost all the kids in the lane go to school, though they are not particularly serious about it. They say they will take up the craft at some time in the future. While the craftspeople live in bamboo huts, they live on the roads.


But it is interesting to note that it needs a lot of dexterity and time to make some of the premium products. For example, they get many orders for blinds. The process is arduous. They get the wood from Falaknuma, and then it is cut into pieces. These pieces are then turned into smaller pieces as per the measurements given by the customer. Once done, the blind is weaved using rocks and ropes. Then they stitch them with a cloth. And if the customer asks, they also paint the blinds in the color they want.


Bamboo and palm leaf products apart, the community also sells wooden baskets made in Assam. They get regular orders and are not particularly concerned about the future. The government is also promoting crafts, they say with a smile.
