Every year i am in two minds whether its worth the haul to go to Suraj Kund Mela in Faridabad. But i end up going every year! Here are some of the things i enjoyed seeing.

Painted terracotta

Enbroideries from Afghanistan

Patchwork umbrellas

Performance artist from Andhra Pradesh

Waste fabric rugs

Funky Hairstyle!

Mens' Kolhapuri Chappals

Tara from Nepal (love the peaceful face)

Sola pith garlands from West Bengal


Rajasthani Gota duppatta - i bought!

Waste fabric boa i could not resist!

hey aditi,
is this me trying out the kolhapuri?
was searching online for kolhapuri chapps & this image came along- deja vu
it stuck me that we had done this visit together & were fascinated by these chapps!
do you have their contact details?
