Artisan: Raj Kumari

Artisan Raj Kumari

"Hi friends, I am Raj Kumari, which means A Queen! I come from Uttra Pradesh. We are three siblings, all girls, and we had great fun growing up together. Expect for few friends in school, we did not have any friends at home because our father was a very conservative and strict man, but he was never short of love for us. Not having a son did not dishearten my father, as it would other traditional Hindu families. In the olden days in small towns and villages, a family was looked down if they were without a son.

"My father had a grocery store and I remember spending much time with him. After completing my 12th standard, I was married off to my husband, Raja Ram Singh. It was an arranged marriage because in those days, that was the only way to marry, and we couldn't go against our parents' wishes. But my parents chose the right life partner for me. I love my husband and I hope we live happily like this for the rest of our lives.

"Since my husband is from Agra, I had to move there. This was the first time I was venturing out of our town! Seeing the Taj Mahal was such a delight. My husband used to work in a marble art workshop and at the time, I never felt the need to learn the craft since I was busy looking after our two kids. They have now grown up and our daughter is married. Our son is working.

"When our children grew up and no longer needed me constantly by their side, I began to feel the need to do something that would help me pass the time. That's when I started to learn the art of marble carving from my husband. About a couple of years before, my husband had ventured into starting his own workshop, along with other artisans.

"The Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, is a great source inspiration to many marble artisans. We try to replicate its beauty through our work and our personal touch.

"We make a wide range of decorative and utilitarian marble items, such as sculptures, jewelry boxes, coasters, trays etc., which we exhibit throughout India, including Agra, Bombay and Delhi."
