The art of calligraphy is among the trough struck arts dying out at double the pace of evolution of multi-media.
The idea is to bring calligraphy back to life and simultaneously generate employment. The slum dwelling ladies are being guided and given opportunity of coming up with innovative ways of calligraphy with their wit and will and thus the skill has made the Art take a fresh gasp.
