Hello. I am Manbhar



45 years

How long have you been working in block print?

I have been block printing for almost 25 years.

Who taught you?

I taught myself because I needed a skill. I came from a very poor family and needed to provide for my children because my husband died.

Has this work improved your quality of life?

Yes, it has. It is hard work, but we get paid for it. My son got married last year and I am glad that I was able to bear the cost.

How have attitudes from men changed towards you in the workplace?

It has been improving over the years and I think it will get better in time. We are respected for the skills that we have but things could always be better.

What are your hopes for the future?

I will continue to work as long as I am capable and provide for my family.
