Photographer's Note

Brick factories lining the river Hooghly near Raichak provide work and income for a large fraction of the local population. People who do not have enough land to cultivate can choose to work in such places, where unskilled labor is in demand.

This man is not one of the clay porters you have seen in my earlier posts, but is involved in the processing of clay before they are cast into bricks. We had a nice conversation with him as he explained the different steps involved in the brick production process.
