What started out 600 years ago in Persia (present day Iran) thrived to become the crown jewel of the Kashmiri arts. However, the art of Kashmiri carpet weaving is now vanishing, on the brink of extinction. This week, in the seventh episode of Kashmir Diaries, we meet Rafiq Ahmed Shah, a 73 year old, fourth generation artist who is fighting to keep this art alive, and is probably the last patron of the art in all of India. Tune in, for an intimate conversation with Rafiq, and how the decline of Kashmiri carpet weaving is emblematic of the languishing state of the arts in India.
