Book Title: The Song of the Loom

The glitter of silks and brocades cannot hide the poverty and exploitation of those who weave them. This is a story of the weavers of Benaras, their dreams and difficulties. The warp of despair and oppression is illuminated by the weft of the hopes of the weavers who transcend their situation by a passionate belief in their craft.

Translated from the hindi original by Rashmi Govind.
