It was in Dacca before fifty years or so where it was found in each instance a Muslim mason with his group of small boys engaged in striking the new-soling of the roof of a house with a wooden handle. The man would play the violin
and sing a song which would be repeated by his group. Boys used to repeat the song of the master and hammer the roof rhythmically.
