In a 3 days workshop at Sandipani Muni School, our girls learnt a beautiful art form called Sanjhi. Sanjhi is a word derived from word like “Sajja, “Shringaar”, and “Sajavat” which all means decoration. This art painting is rooted in the folk culture of the Braj Region. Presently, the art of Sanjhi Painting has become rare and is practiced by only a select few and remains a living tradition only in some temples of India. The teacher Shri Sumit Goswami , is the principal representative of these arts among the present day generation. The training also included making Sanjhi Painting on water. The girls were stunned to know that something like that was possible. Everyone who saw the artwork was amazed at the talent of Shri Sumit Goswami and his team.

In the month of August, we had some great volunteers visit us and help us with teaching the kids at school. One of them, however, really won the hearts of our little girls. Cosetta from Italy, volunteered with us for two weeks. In this time she taught our girls how to make dolls using scrap cloth. Cosetta got all the raw material from Italy which shows how much effort she had put in to make this project successful. She first learnt how to make the dolls herself as she had no previous knowledge of doll making, after which she decided to travel to Vrindavan and teach at the school. The girls had so much fun and made some really cute dolls. Sharing some pictures of this fun activity.
