Lovingly handcrafted and adorned with the locally woven Khann fabric by the women artisans of Mahila Kala Niketan, Karuna from the western state of Maharashtra is called Bhavani. Goddess Bhavani was the patron deity of the Maratha king Shivaji Maharaj, who dedicated his sword, Bhawani Talwar, to the goddess who is a fierce incarnation of goddess Parvati and is a nurturing mother to her devotees and a ferocious dispenser of justice.
Karuna from Maharashtra represents resilience that helps us recoup from difficulties.
