A child runs barefoot, across the rustic lanes, dragging along a traditional wooden Rajasthani doll. Something about the scene evokes within us a sense of nostalgia. We’ve all come across these handmade wooden #dollsat least once in our lifetime. Maybe a present from our Grandparents or watching our younger sibling play with them. These intricately designed dolls featuring bold colours or extravagant artwork imbibe a great sense of emotion.
A favourite resident of dadi ma’s closets, these wooden art dolls are authentic versions of Indian culture. The #puppets find their origin in the remote parts of north western India and their authenticity lies in their simplicity.
Carved out of love for all the village children, these dolls imbibe the spirit of traditional India within them. These handcrafted dolls are raw and untainted. Every detail is done to perfection yet their lies a delicate ambience to their demeanour. The reason being they are uniquely Indian. The style and story they portray all embroider our very own culture and sentiments.
Yet, it’s unfortunate how less we recognize the potential talents behind these handiworks. These #artisans may be rough around the edges, but no one can deny their unparalleled passion towards the trade.
However, today’s generation is encompassed by the social world online. The advancement of technology is slowly making us abandon our culture and heritage. Nevertheless, Indian art and handicraft is the magic link that can bring us back.
The truth is that the spirit and culture of India is imbedded deep within its art. The core of Indian art originates at the hands of our rural craftsmen.

Come let’s build them a platform and together uphold the traditions and culture of this glorious nation.
