What better way to spend a springy Sunday afternoon than browsing through stalls after stalls of gorgeous craft and art from different regions of India? That's exactly what I did yesterday, at the Dastkar Mela (Dastkar means craftsperson and Mela means fair). Below is just a sample from the absolutely eye catching colors and designs available at the mela..
[Kantha work on silk from West Bengal and Dokra craft from Bihar ]
Info for readers in Delhi and around: This fair is on at the IGNCA grounds (Janpath). I would recommend at the least one visit! Things to look out for: Rugs, maheshwari sarees, leather bags, the e'thaan stall, Atler ego's stall, raw silk and khadi silk fabric.
