Title: Blacksmithing- A day in the life

Blacksmithing- A day in the life. The lives of blacksmiths in Gaibandha are getting increasingly difficult with time as the art is slowly fading into obsolesce and failing to compete with modern practices and industrialization. As a result, many blacksmiths are forced to stray from a family trade into other forms of work in order to earn enough income to sustain their families. We hear the story from Tuku, a blacksmith as such, as he unravels the complications and challenges in the life of a blacksmith in present day Bangladesh. The story was prepared by Quddus, DrikNEWS correspondent in Gaibandha, January 2012.
