This paan shop is more than 20 years old. I started running this after my husband and son died. I have a family to take care of. I have a daughter in law and two grandchildren. Who will take care of them if I don't work?
I keep the shop open until 10 pm at night. I feel safe here because nobody can dare to do anything with me. Also the police station is nearby. - Shobha Devi (Near Janaki Temple in Janakpur)

One day I saw my Aunt painting. I tried to copy her work. She saw it and said "do you have a camera in your eyes? You have copied me perfectly". I got nervous and I spilled paint all over my painting. I was 12 years old back then and that was my first painting. Since then I saw my Aunt and Grandmother paint and I learnt it from them. Now my sisters, my mother and I, we all paint.
I paint both Mithila and Madhubani paintings. I have received training to refine and learn more about it. I like to keep the original and traditional style in my art work. I do not want to compromise it ever. I also make other art products such as mirror and photo frames. I provide training to others too. I travel to Kathmandu often to sell my art products but I am still not able to sell my paintings there. I sell the paintings from my home, locally. I am planning to expand my work. - Sonam Karna (Kuwarampur, Janakpur)
