"A Visual Feast!"

  • 6.5/7
  • Posted Apr 9, 2014
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 participants from various countries like Brazil, Belorussia, Afghanistan, Namibia, etc. Can you beat that? Now they have cuisines from some the participating countries each year. 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! They are photographers fiesta!
