Sami Ahmed is an excellent skilled artisan of Hand carving from Saharanpur (U.P.).
He is only earner and supporting his family, his parents, wife and 3 daughters.
Tarashnaa found Sami in struggling period when he was unable to fulfill his day-to-day need. When
we met him, he told his story about his hand carving work which he learned from his generations. He
uses to do it since childhood. But now he left it due to exploitation and no demand of good quality
work. He was selling vegetable on street side to bring some earning to his family. He was unable to

Tarashnaa checked his work which was amazing, employed with good salary and given good working
