Curator: Sandeep Biswas

Last year Khatun (Khatun is a commom surname mostly used in the Muslim community of the Murshidabad District where woman are commonly referred to as Khatun.) dropped out of school and now she starts her day by putting tobacco flakes inside tendu leaves which are cut into small rectangular pieces and rolls it down with a yarn tied over it, securing it tightly and tucks its one end with a small iron rod to make one beedi. She rolls 1000 sticks of beedi, rocking back and forth for 12–14 hours a day to earn a partial sum of less than 2 dollars.
