A wedding for lunch

Yesterday was a happy day at Purkal. All of Stree Shakti got dressed up to go to the wedding of Neelam Thakur’s daughter Vinita in the Village of Kimari. Neelam is one of our artisans and was very excited to see the Stree Shakti bus arrive at her home. We had a very bumpy bus ride to get there but the setting was beautiful and everyone really enjoyed the afternoon celebrations.


Guests at Stree Shakti

On the 14th and 15th of November we welcomed lots of visiors to Stree Shakti, they all got tours of our workshops from Chinni and Maneet and then did a bit of shopping in our display centre.


Everyone enjoyed the Ecole Global School, All India Women’s Conference,  Kamla Mahila and the Yoga Students Group from Yog Ganga visiting us. It was a very busy couple of days and we hope all our guests liked our workshops at Purkal.
