Surajkund Craft Fair, India
Hello my super creative and talented friends!
I know most of you here are art-lovers and would appreciate the efforts that go into making hand-crafted good. Through this post, I'd like to introduce to you the spectacular talent that we have in India. They don't call India a land rich in culture for no reason! There are 26 states in India and each has it's own form of art, dance, food and language.
The pictures I am going to share here are from Surajkund Crafts Fair. The fair brought together people from all over India
I'll end the talking here and let the pictures take you to Surajkund (in Faridabad, India) were this confluence awed people and also inspired many like us.
