Twaksati pays tribute to it’s Inspiration!

Ma
The one who wielded the Midas Touch and turned every life she touched to gold. The one who motivated us to to do the same, to open our hearts to the world. The one who inspired us to create, and thus share the joy of living.A self-made social entrepreneur of sorts, she is perhaps the biggest inspiration behind Twaksati.

With her creative embroidery and a skillful hand, she would often make simple, yet beautiful, dresses for all of us for every occasion, and drape our humble abode in Dehradun with her love and creativity. Back home, she gave every holiday a special allure. A few years back, she even urged me to help develop artistic skills of her caregivers at her home in Garia, Kolkata. The two ladies, Lakhi and Brihaspati, have created wonders for Twaksati, with their beautiful handmade embroideries on dupattas and stoles. Her belief in sharing knowledge and skill development rubbed off on us, and are the pillars of what Twaksati stands firmly upon.

Though Smt. Puspa Paul has left for her heavenly abode, she lives in our hearts with her honest and dignified ways of overcoming obstacles, and her simple, yet modern, approach to life. Her hand will never cease to guide us to build a better world. She lives forever with us, in Twaksati.
