With a population of 1K people in a little village these women have found a way to dig themselves out suppression. 95% of the male gender drowns in alcoholism while these ladies uphold their household of kids, sisters, daughters and daughter-in-laws.  When they couldn’t depend on male dominance to be their support system, they became each other’s shoulders. Gramshree entitled them as artisans to use their God given gift to enrich their lives.
Personally, I have never seen such beautiful set of women anywhere in the world. Their determination, courage and optimism are the only qualities they need as singhar(make up) I’ll be damned if I saw even a spec of weakness in their eyes.

These three girls were waiting outside of a blind school on their teacher who teaches them without any charge. Nothing but smiles and laughter when teachers are late for about 45 minutes. I asked them their age and the response I received shocked me. These charming girls actually had no idea how old they were. As many plans go into our own birthdays, it’s really world stomach turning to see children so happy and carefree to take on the world one day at a time. Maybe it’s better that we don’t know the numerical value of our age in order to live forever young.

Before you meet Bhallabhai, meet Raghu ( please read articlehttp://mirrorheroes.com/ahmedabad/Raghu_Makwana.html) This is Bhallabhai, father of a Raghu Makwana. Raghu is a selfless human being because of his actions towards his community. He gave the elderly a reason to live and brought people closer together with his contagious and charismatic personality. Creator of Tyaag Nu Tiffin unfortunately left this world but his presence is always felt."After my son passed away, my purpose of living has no value. After all he has given to this world, God took him away from me. But I know God just wanted his true son back"
