    As usual, an interesting set of vignettes promised by you, Sir. I do wonder, if the art of making muslin handkerchiefs is now lost in history in the area. If not, that makes for an interesting possibility as a ‘Geographical Indication’ a form of community-owned intellectual property rights.

    Quite interesting. Chatrath saheb, you are a great historian !

    @DV Bhatia: I am glad you find it interesting.
    @Madhukar: No, unfortunately this art has disappeared from Balasore unlike the ‘roomals of Chamba’ which are still flourishing.
