Yes, they are pretty much talented in their work. But, it would inflict you deep, if I bring infront of you their lives and the struggles that they bear in their lives, everyday.
Their hands, craft idols of Gods and Goddesses during various religious ceremonies and in a way give them a living form.
Be it during Ganesh Pooja, Durga Pooja , Saraswati Pooja and other important Indian festivals, they never miss out to give their best into giving a form to the Faith of the people.
On the other hand, they are forced to live under tough circumstances with little or no food to eat, no proper clothes to dress up, bitter living conditions and are hardly able to support and bring up their family. Many of them even suffer from various hazardous diseases due to the use of paints and colors that contain toxic elements. In Many places, it has been observed that they loose even their eyesight as they grow old.
Deficiency of proper and balanced diet renders them skinny and their children are prone to malnutrition.
There are Millions of artists and craftsmen in India who need proper care and support from the People as well as the Government, to uplift their conditions and enable them to lead a better life.
We are forced to use foreign or machine made clothes or crafts, owing to the ads and the so called 'Quality Products' and that inflicts the Small Scale Industries and various artisans associated with it.
Let us take this message forward to reach the Government as well as to each and every person in India so that in our little ways we can help sustain our Culture, Traditions (No that's no a joke, Agriculture, Arts and Crafts and Trade are what India was Known for, back then!) And allow those people to live with pride and dignity, those who give A REAL FORM TO OUR FAITH AND BELIEFS.
