When a group of French and Italian, tourists recently went to Lalbaug to see the ancient workin g class dis tr ict, they were surrounded by friendly textile workers and their chil- dren. The visitors were given or- anges, packets of peanuts, fried fish and salted mangoes. A marriage band was comman- deered to play some local tunes for them.
