Sharded Thread (6/8)

Spooling it all in... All that pristine-white yarn transformed by dint of hard work into fuschia coloured glass-shard coated lethal `manja` needs to be spooled on to wooden, metal or, increasingly nowadays, tacky-plastic `firkis` before it can be sold... The colourful firkis serve as point-of-purchase and product rolled into one... It`s a sight to see, all that colour by the roadside...

But these rag-covered, cut and bruised hands tell the real story behind the `manja`... And tell it only too well, I think...
