It was a training session to the teacher and her assistant from ‘आश्रम शाळा’ a welfare organisation for orphan and street children from Junnar Village (जुन्नर) in the district of Pune (पुणे). They both learnt to paint so that they could teach the students in their school to paint and sell the oil lamps (पणत्या) to earn money, during Diwali festival. You will see lots of beautiful diyas in the market now a days, people like more decorative things than the simple ones and why not, after all Diwali is a festival of colors and celebration! 🙂 To see more pictures of my painted diyas click on portfolio. Happy Diwali.
