      Art Form


      This artform, which originated in Bihar, was practised by women, mostly Rajput women, as were many other rich handicrafts of India. Sujani, which means "facilitating birth," clearly communicates that the sujani art style was employed to enhance freshly born children's clothing. Sujani, on the other hand, appears to be fairly modern in comparison to other styles of needlework, having started in the 1920s. Sujani is utilised to transmit strong political and social themes such as "a drunken guy abusing his wife" or "women's oppression" and other such issues because art forms rarely remain barren of social or political issues. Sujani is gaining popularity in many villages across modern India as a source of income for women who are unable to leave their homes.
