Well, I got to know about this international craft fair, first from my friend 'Suman' few years back :) I never realised the beauty of this place until I got to see and do this project in month of February this year. Honestly, I've never seen so many different people form various states / countries coming together and exhibiting their art & craft, food and culture. This project is about meeting wonderful people, their smile, remembering my childhood days, getting close to my soil and knowing a little more about my colourful India.
You'll experience the rich showcase of regional and international crafts and traditions, a splash of colours, rhythm of drum beats and joy merge at Surajkund in Faridabad, (Haryana, India) during the first fortnight of each February.
The mela (fair) celebrates the unique diversity of Indian traditions and culture in a ambience, created to represent the ethos of rural India. The fair is held with a different theme every year on Indian culture and craft.
All thanks to my friends Gaurav, Vallari & Suman for being their with me.
Hope you'll enjoy watching it.
