Fatherhood personified

An old legend is told about a woman who married a thief. When the couple was blessed with a son, the father stopped stealing. However, with no means to support his family, he went back to stealing. After being struck by a disease, the father passed away when the child was still a toddler. The woman then remarried, this time a businessman. The man raised the child as his own and taught him the skills of business. The child grew up to be a wise businessman. When both his parents died, the son was asked to make an offering for both his parents in a river. When he was about to drop the offering into a river, three pairs of hands came out to take the offering. The son recognized his mother’s hand and gave an offering to her. But he could not recognize which one of the other two pairs of hands was her father’s. The son then recalled the time when his mother had mentioned to him his first father. He then recognized his businessman father’s hands but was in a dilemma about who to offer the last rites. Eventually, he made a difficult choice and offered the last rites to this businessman's father. He reasoned that his first father gave him life but his second father brought meaning to his life. The tribal people often tell this legend to their children to teach them a lesson in upbringing.

The much acclaimed “Wrought Iron Craft of Bastar” comes from the Bastar region - the place that’s known for its craftsmanship and original wrought iron process around the world. In fact, this specific process has been protected under the Geographical Indication (GI) of the Agreement on Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property Rights (TRIPS). Bastar is a hub of skilled ironsmiths who have made a living from following this traditional wrought iron techniques from their ancestral origins. Our artisans belong to Gondi and Maria - the two communities that are particularly well-versed with iron-crafting.
