Sasi makes giant lamp with granite pieces
Kuruppampadi: A traditional lamp made by Sasi, a granite worker, using several pieces of granites is gathering attention of the public. The lamp, which is more than 6 foot tall, is made with thousands of granite pieces. Sasi said it took him more than 3 months to complete the work.
Sasi is a granite wall construction worker and lost work due to the pandemic. He got the idea of the lamp while he was sitting idle at home. It took him a lot of time and effort to complete it using the granite pieces he collected from different places.
Sasi has 8 cents of land to his name and nothing else. He cannot do any other work either.
Sasi said that he feels happy when people appreciate his work although he started making the lamp to pass time. NC Mohanan, who is chairman of TELK and a former classmate of Sasi, appreciated his work after visiting his home.
Sasi’ s family consists of wife Rajamma and children Shamon, Shine and Shani.
