Manoharan Suthagar (25) has learnt garland making from his parents at the age of five. His parents used to make garlands for temples. He followed his parents footsteps and has become a garland maker.
Suthagar has a small place at Sri Venkadeswara Maha Vishnu temple in Nediamala to make garlands for the temple. He is single, needs more money once he gets married.
He feels challenged, when he tries out new styles in garland making. A few like Suthagar likes to become garland makers, because it does not pay much, unless they own the business.
