India 🇮🇳 is a country rich in its own “cultural heritage”and famous for “handicrafts” which are specific to various regions of India 🇮🇳 and are loved Wroldwide 🌎.
Recently there has been an “Exhibition“organised by “West Bengal Minorities‘ Development & Finance Corporation” West Bengal Government at Jodhpur Park near South City Mall in Kolkata from 23.03.2017 to 05.04.2017.
As me and my wife both are quite fond of such handicrafts had been to there & Fortunately I came across the Managing Director of the said organisation and after interacting with him , I was very much glad to know that “Govt of India” 🇮🇳 is helping these people mostly from the lowest strata of the society in a big way by lending them money to let them thrive their traditional Art . These people have immense skills in various handicrafts starting from Bamboo, Jute, Silk, Cotton & Leather work. A lot of varieties of Handloom sarees and dress materials were in display .
It reminded me another Exhibition We visited last year at Ranchi and I would like to add here some of the clicks from that exhibition organised by “Police 👮 Officer Wives‘ Association” at “Ranchi” .
Hand made “Lac Bangles” were the main attraction among various items that that was being displayed there .Many artisans from various parts of India 🇮🇳 were there & they were busy making their items in a live demo mode .
To conclude –
my motto behind this “Blog”is to create “awareness” among my readers and let us help these craftsmen in any form possible either by buying or promoting such things so to encourage “Indian Heritage of Handicraft“.
I know every now and then there is such “Handicraft Exhibition” being organised in various parts of India and I am personally thankful to You for stopping by my Blog and give your valuable suggestions and let’s All promote #MakeInIndia concept .
