With this money, Anjana used to buy the colors and brushes required for painting, even though there is no hand, Anjana paints a wonderful painting. She makes different kinds of paintings from the toes, which people who visit Rishikesh, lose their consciousness after seeing the skill of Anjana.

Anjana one day sat on the ghat of Rishikesh – sitting on her feet holding a piece of charcoal and trying to write something. Just then, Stephanie came to visit Rishikesh from abroad and looked at Anjana and saw that she wanted to write the name of Lord Ram on the floor with her feet.
