Darshan Chopra, Class IX C, Roll No.14 - Priceless

India this time has been a journey of self exploration and finding my roots. I discovered, that my grandmother and mother are the true unsung heroes of the design world. Their work is priceless and is my true heritage.

Today I am sharing some of my mother-Darshan Ratra's (Chopra) needle work from her school days. Some of the pieces even has a date, her class, and her Roll No--Darshan Chopra, Class IXC, Roll No. 14 - Priceless
