“It’s a stereotype that cops do not or will not like to head the handicrafts corporation. As a Kannadiga IPS officer, I have great pride in our native handicrafts of the state. I can relate& interact with artisans just like one of their own. As a woman I’m interested in aesthetics,” says IPS D Roopa who took charge as Managing Director at Karnataka State Handicrafts Department.

D Roopa tweeted, “Took charge as MD, Karnataka State Handicrafts Development Corporation. “Cauvery”, the brand. What we make, here’s a glimpse– the Hoysala insignia.”
