A Visual Feast!

What began has a small handicrafts fair has grown over the last 28 years to be an International celebration of traditional crafts. Its not just the various states of India. Today you will see partcipants from as diverse countries as Brazil to Belorussia; from Afganisthan to Namibia. Can you beat that? Now hold breath for the latest they have cuisine from some the participating countries each year now. In 2013 the Namibians came with their dried insects (was Simba and friends lurking somewhere?) and the Sri Lankans turned in with their Kottu Roti in 2014! As for the handicrafts. Check them. See the dedication and accuracy with which the master artisans shape up their artifacts. Bathe in the colours. They are a riot! Its a photographers fiesta! The dates are fixed it is 1st to the 15th of February every year.One small request. Do not bargain hard with these people. These items are not mass-produced. The makers are not millionaires.
