I went to the Surajkund Mela(Fair/carnival) today. Traditional craftsman (artists, painters, weavers and sculptors) from all parts of the country participate in this annual celebration named as the “Surajkund Crafts Mela” or "Surajkund designer’s Village”.

Designer items created by 50 best designers and craftsmen in wood, metal, bamboo, iron, glass, textiles and stone can be seen here.
This Mela (fair) is visited by lovers of arts and crafts from all over the world.
This fair was first started in 1987. The fair is held with a different theme every year on Indian culture and craft. The theme, specific to a state of India, this year Rajasthan, is depicted at the entrance to the Mela grounds and provides an ambience of that particular state with characteristic colors, materials, architecture, furniture and decorations.

The crafts on display in the stalls (400) is of particular crafts of that state.
The Mela also includes a food festival covering some of the popular cuisines from different parts of the country. Entertainment in the form of famous rhythms and dance of folk theatre are also held here during the festival.


PS: I am off to another week long vacation, where to I will tell when I come back. I will be missing a lot of awesome photos, but I guess on returning I too will have many experiences to share, and hopefully, unlike my last trip, less than 4000 pics. :)
Have a nice week my friends!

????? Great Set. Really captures the local flavors. Well done. One thing I am never ever comfortable at is photographing people. I'm very shy that way. Even when I'm being paid to do it I feel so uncomfortable...
