Notes on Antique Textiles, Folk Art & Timeless Traditions – Jaina Mishra

with beautiful tribal people with lives that are so different from mine and yours and yet so attractive

– their motivations and their values.

All the articles on this site have been written ‘Swantah Sukhayah’ – a word in Sanskrit for ‘self-fulfiment’. If they also please the reader then that is a real bonus!
Why do I take the trouble to share these stories? Because these experiences have opened my mind. Because I might forget the details someday. Because one part of my world does not know how fantastic the other part of my world is. And by sharing these stories, I am doing my bit to share the beauty of that vanishing world.
