This Padma awardee could barely see but his intricate artworks are a sight to behold

As 84-year-old Manohar Devadoss draws you into a conversation, you can’t help but notice the sparkle in his eye. Eager to tell you stories from his very eventful life, he has a way with words — and with his hands. So much so that he has over 200 artworks to his name despite suffering from retinal degeneration, a condition that led him to lose sight first in one eye and then eventually in the other. Honoured recently with the Padma Shri, most of his works have been showcased in his seven books, besides heritage greeting cards and art exhibitions.
