The shuktara girls are quite accomplished in stitching and have created many samplers over the years – you can see more of their work in the video below. The second short video shows just how much Guria can do despite her difficulty with fine motor skills. We think you’ll be absolutely amazed at Guria’s stitching technique.
At shuktara we love to celebrate birthdays. 15th May was Bablu Lal’s birthday. We think Bablu is probably the oldest person who lives at shuktara although like most of the people who live at our homes we have no actual birth information. Bablu’s birthday is during the very hot season right before the rains start in June. We’re sure that a piece of Bablu’s cake made the day a real celebration – and possibly for just a few minutes everyone could forget about the soaring temperatures.
