My penchant to adore and curate handmade artifacts developed overtime. I could trace the beginning of my liking back to the time when I first saw a handmade earring in an exhibition “Chhattisgarh Haat Bazaar” in a cold day in December. It was a beautiful feather earring with wooden beads. Before I could go and try it on, someone stopped me from behind. Who would stop a 5th grade school girl from trying such a quirky earring? Any guesses?
