    Home - Blog

    Within the field of social work, there are those whose unwavering devotion and passion are evident, positively impacting the lives of others. One such person is Smriti Bhatia, the director and mentor of mgsocialcare.org. She has recently received recognition for her outstanding services to society from the Aarambham Foundation with the esteemed Balika Vidya Shakti Award.

    Eco-Friendly Trophies Crafted by Etikoppaka Artisans

    Smriti Bhatia has been recognized with an award, certificate and trophy as a special token of gratitude in the form of environmentally friendly trophies made with natural colors by the highly regarded Etikoppaka artisans from the state of Andhra Pradesh. Beyond just acknowledgment, these awards serve as a symbol of Smriti Bhatia’s dedication to sustainability and the preservation of traditional workmanship.


    The Endangered Art of Etikoppaka

    With a long history spanning several centuries, etikoppaka craftsmanship is  valued in our cultural legacy. Globally, art aficionados have been enthralled with the elaborate designs and painstaking skills exhibited by Etikoppaka artists. But because to a number of issues, including a lack of knowledge and respect among the younger generation, this centuries-old craft is currently in danger of going extinct.

    Challenges Faced by Etikoppaka Artisans

    Traditional art forms like Etikoppaka have faced tremendous difficulties from modernization and globalization. Demand for handmade artisanal goods declines as mass-produced substitutes frequently eclipse the artistry and originality of traditional art. The livelihoods of Etikoppaka artists have been damaged by this shift in consumer preferences, which poses a threat to the longevity of their craft.
