A KUTCHI FAIR

I recently attended this exhibition in the Matunga, Mumbai that showcased the arts of Kutch. Kutch is a district in Gujarat, India- which consists of several villages that are famous for their arts and handicrafts.

The exhibition ground was turned into a village-like atmosphere which had music performers and many small stalls. Each stall was selling various handicrafts while a crafts-person was demonstrating the making of that particular craft, a neat concept.
