If you saw the previous post on the mela of handmade, crafted goodies, I hope you plan to visit! The mela is on from today (23 Nov) to Sun, 27th Nov, 2011. I went there early on hoping to get in some pictures and share with you so you can plan on visiting before the week is out :).
There are so many talented people doing beautiful and meaningful work. Go check them out ! The mela is on at 4 Ashley Road, Behind Hotel Ajanta, Off MG Road ( 1 min walk from Trinity metro station). Here are a few glimpses…
