I am a retired teacher and after retiring in 2018, I had a lot of time on my hands. I felt I was wasting my time. So started experimenting with my passion for cooking and gardening. This actually, got started in the school itself to get the kids to make their own kitchen garden. I found it very rewarding and when I retired, I tried making miniature gardens at home. I started exploring more and took up classes to learn about mosaic art, distress painting and incorporate this art on objects like as tables, coasters, frames, pots, wall paints etc. Another passion of mine is to make an organic face scrub at home. My face scrub is an age-old recipe used by 4 generations. Starting from my grandmother and now my grand-daughters. I learned it from my grandmother. 100% safe and natural - safe and good for baby skins as well as for young and aged skins. I am 58 years of age and I feel good that I am keeping myself busy in my own way by following my passion.
I have named my venture as Yoga's Place. Launched just 2 years back. My product line includes Fairy Gardens, Mosaic Tables, Mosaic Coasters, Painted Wooden Decoratives, Decorative Pots and Planters, Organic Face Scrub. I reside in Gurgaon, Delhi NCR and display my products at the local fairs and exhibitions and flea markets. Planning to expand more in the near future. Oh yes, as I am fond of cooking, very soon I am going to make exotic pickles for selling purpose.
My Words of Advice to Other Women
It’s never too late. You keep learning. Every day is a new day. If I can start at 58 years, anyone can.
