Muniganga, a DWARAKA artist recalls and says “My husband Kanakaiah, an auto driver was suddenly laid down with severe back problems. The doctors in my town advised surgery, and afraid of an operation I took him to the best of hospitals in Bangalore. My family was crumbling under the thought of going into severe debt.
I took solace and strength from my work as a kalamkari artist, and eventually got the medical treatment to cure my husband’s health problems. This was possible only with sheer grit and determination and all the support I got from DWARAKA. Anitamma visited us in the hospital and gave us immense courage to hold out. My husband is doing well now and drives his auto again. DWARAKA changed our lives completely.”
