At present the use of jute has dropped significantly. As a result, the demand for jute products has also decreased. However, Dev Prasad Malakar, a resident of Shanti Nagar, Polta of North 24 Parganas district, is slowly bringing back the lost essence of the jute industry. Everyone was amazed when the former student of Indian Art College made a 2 cm in height Durga idol from jute. It took him 2 weeks to finish the work.
