Meet The Woman Because Of Whom We Are Here Smt. Taraben Doshi.An Artist, A Philanthropist, And A Mother! This competition was started in the loving memory of our mother, Smt. Taraben Doshi. She used to decorate beautiful aarti thalis for every religious occasion, festival, or pujas with utmost devotion and love for her craft. Like a true artist, she also demonstrated her art at various ladies’ associations and on national television.
