Rakesh Pathak from Jaipur believes he was born with a strong creative instinct. 'Ever since I was a little boy, I have always enjoyed creating things with my hands. I mastered the art of wood carving during my six-year apprenticeship with a reputed craftsman in Delhi. I remember this period of my life as an amazing experience, though time came to venture out and set up my own workshop. Eventually I was able to offer employment to other craftsmen.'What is Worldstock?The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design.
