Sundari Kanyana, a member of the Shivagiri group and Sanjeevini Okkoota, has showcased her talents in basket crafting and other crafts while touring various districts with the Dollu group.

    Crafting baskets is a profession and commercial activity. Adivasi people used to stay in the jungle, away from general public. Their culture was different. They never used to travel by bus. ( even though buses were there) These 4 ladies plan to travel by flight from Bangalore to Delhi. See the difference Between modern Adivasi and olden days Adivasi.
