    Hi friends,
    I am so happy that you appreciate my work. But there are so many workers in villages doing this great embroidery for wages to earn their daily bread. To us it is art,but for them it is a job. I wish everyone of us takes time to think and thank the poor women who did the beautiful work on our costly salwars.

    Hi Vini,
    A special thanks for your mention in ammas.com
