Say something about your beginning
I was a very quiet and a shy girl but my upbringing has taught me that my self-respect was my attitude. I had performed In speeches, plays, dramas and poetry competitions during school and college. This learning had brought a stability in my nature. Painting and writings have always been a strong side of my living, As I got published my articles in Hindi edition of Himachal and Punjab newspapers. School letters, newsletters and local publications at times. My article “The dying birds at Sultanpur” was also published in a paper in Delhi in 2011. I wrote a play which was enacted at Shiv Mandir Green Park main by a group of children under my guidance on the occasion of Independence day rising the spirit of patriotism in the assembly of thousands.
As being a social worker earning money has never been on my mind but when. I painted 20+ suits before my wedding in just few days for people so that I could learn a hand on my hobbies. I was paid well along with countless blessings which is my treasure even today. This encouraged me to paint at special occasions for my near and dear ones as a token of love to cherish a memory. I have an experience of earning while I was teaching at Sacred Heart Convent School in Dalhousie before I got married.
