Stone Carvers Fight to Save their Art

Stone carvers in India fear their craft is dying out. In Ordisha (formerly known as Orissa) the heritage of stone work dates back many centuries. Numerous temples are peppered across the state and palaces and shrines are all decorated with stone sculptures. But observers say the centuries-old language of stone may soon become extinct as the younger generation of stone-carvers is forced to find other ways of making a living.
