From a small hospital, it rose to a mid-sized one after she got in additional grants from the state government. Now popularly known as the RCD (Rani Chandramani Devi hospital), it caters to both polio and orthopaedic patients. The magnanimous lady also donated a building for patients afflicted with leprosy and was closely associated with managing Prema Samajam. She was also spiritual, and donated her Ambica Bagh palace to be converted into a temple. She was a staunch devotee of Lord Rama.
Our Visakha Queen is shot against the backdrop of her palace and we depict her as an elderly woman, as she rose to fame for her noble intentions late in life. Draped in a humble khadi with rich Jamdani work, edged with rich kaddi border in gold, the choice reflects her simplicity and grace. The floral Jamdani was chosen to mirror the nature and beauty of Visakhapatnam, where she lived her life. The lady who won hearts and has been etched in the minds of people forever - a perfect choice for our Queen’s collection.
