In 2021, she was a recipient of the Padmashri, a civilian honor granted by the Government of India, for her contributions to art.

About Madhubani Paintings
Also known as Mithila painting due to its origins in the Mithila region of India and Nepal, Madhubani is a traditional Indian folk art made on canvas, cloth, or cow dung-washed hand paper. Natural dye and colors are used in the creation of artworks with geometrical figures and vibrant colors being key elements.
The Madhubani style of painting can be traced to the Madhubani district in Bihar, literally meaning 'a forest of honey', where women spent a lot of time making these paintings on the walls of their homes. Mainly attributed to the upper caste in the beginning, this was later taken up by women across all castes. The women used their keen sense of beauty to create evocative paintings of gods and goddesses, animals and characters from mythology, using natural dyes and pigments and painted with the help of twigs, fingers, and matchsticks.
