A Young Conserver of Traditional Crafts

Suthari Sathwika is a Class 5 student in RDF Rollakal School. Sathwika is an all rounder, good in her academic work, and with a lot of enthusiasm for co-curricular activities too. She actively participates in sports and speaks on stage without shyness or fear.

It’s no surprise, then, that this young and diligent girl has taken to learning her family’s traditional work – carpentry. From a young age, she has been observing her father at work, eager to learn everything from him. She now has some good carpentry skills and helps her father make various goods.

In addition to this, she has also been educating others to learn their family’s traditional occupation, which has been sustained for centuries. She believes preserving local arts, crafts and traditions will give rural children a job of their own. She is certainly a strong advocate for conserving rural heritage and craftsmanship!
