This tour would be an insightful experience for a visitor desiring to learn about stories of real India working hard to make a living against the harsh challenges occasioned by the accident of their destiny. Yes, please, we are talking about an interactive workshop with women who have seen and have been through many hardships in life. However, they have refused to accept the commands of destiny, and have carved a unique path that has started to wield results and bring smiles to their families as well. We start our session with a warm welcome by the ladies at the workshop where they will greet you with a bright smile, and will share the stories of their past. They explain more about their work here, and how this NGO has helped to stand on their own in their respective lives. Then, these ladies will encourage you to participate with them where they demonstrate the various nuances of making beautiful and elegant handicraft items. With their not-so-good English they will converse with you, but, you will probably understand everything as language is no more a barrier when hearts attempt to communicate with each other.

The Rickshawala (Rickshaw driver) sits on a small cushion in the front and two passengers on the sofa seat behind.
