As Senior Carver, Ramsurad’s grandfatherly presence is strongly felt in MONK’s button factory . Having spent 22 years carving and chiselling raw materials such as stone and wood into button sized discs, Ramsurad embodies the characteristic most associated with craftsmanship, dedication. With a wide, unwavering smile, Ramsurad recounted his journey from Varanasi, India to the Kathmandu Valley as if it happened yesterday. His past is written but his future lies in the lives of his son and four daughters, all of whom are currently studying or working in India. With the marriage of his eldest daughter due to occur early next year, Ramsurad’s future has much to be excited about.
