Life on thin Lines

A story on how people run business on something that is small and it is running the whole family as a business. An old culture and tradition of manufacturing Silk saree. A dress that is worn by women in India, which has economical and social value. A simple process as to how the silk is woven from the worms and are made into an expensive saree that has higher value. It was surprising to hear that this business is growing in large sectors of European countries. Normally these apparels are starting at a price of $700 to $5000. they are all solely manufactured in small towns and houses in a famous city in Southern India called as Kanchipuram. and it was pleasing to see how a family gets along together in making such beautiful transformation.
