Photographic Expression

SOS India

Case Studies: India
a child's comment :
This is in mother's room and it is the mantap of God and also who I pray to every day. I love praying and feel it is a good start of the day to pray and because it helps me avoid
problems. I love it because I like the way my mother keeps the mantap so beautifully.

researcher's comment:
Shobha explains that the mantap is the house for a God. This one is for Lord Shiva. It is always made of wood and if you are rich it will be made of teak.
