The Rich Culture Of Indian Handicrafts
The rich and cultural heritage of India has for a long time attracted people all over the world. The valuable traditions and customs that we have obtained from our forefathers,is still prevalent in our country.
The expanding number of art and craft exhibitions that are held in the city and in other parts of India, constantly remind us that we may have succeeded a great deal in terms of science and technology but even today, nothing can replace a handmade variety by machine produced goods. In spite of the fact that machines do the amount of work the artisans could do in an hour’s time nothing can replace the natural beauty of things made by artisans.
Places like Dilli haat and emporiums in Delhi keep holding art and craft exhibitions, quite regularly. Moderately priced, these goods are bought by not just foreigners but Indians too. These exhibitions are sometimes built around themes. For example states like West Bengal and Gujarat are selected as the topic and the speciality of these particular states, from the food to locally produced goods are sold.
The Khadi emporium located in Connaught Place, is another such place where you get hold of hand made things. The stuff is made by village based industries. The cloth that evoked spirit of nationalism, during our fight for independence that’s Khadi is also available here. You can also find beauty essentials like creams, shampoos and soaps, again handmade.
Sadly enough, people seem to have given up on using handmade goods altogether. We do our shopping from the big and swanky shopping malls that have been sprawling over in the capital for quite a few years. The synthetic smells and false fabrics that are sold to customers at high rates, tagging them as handmade is unethical. Very few people manage to tell the difference and get fooled easily.
We must not run away from our roots. We must try and keep alive the rich cultural bounty we have been gifted with.
