Bablu is an only child, and his father died in a fight when he was six months old. He learnt to sew when he was ten, and has been working as a tailor ever since, supporting his wife and three children as well as his mother, who doesn't have access to a pension.
Since working for Eternal Creation, Bablu worked as a sample tailor, and Frances has now taught him how to make patterns. He's extremely talented at this, having a good feel for the shape and structure of garments after so many years of making them. He plans to have his own tailoring business one day in Fatepur village, where his mother lives, so he can be close to her in her old age.
