Bhaarata! Bharatavarsha! Jambudweepa!
Tianzhu (Tenjiku)! Hind! Hindustan! Hodu! India!
All the above names are of our motherland!
Multiple traditions, hundreds of languages, vast variety of traditional arts… Geographical diversity…
All colour our nation vividly that is unique with its geographical diversity…
Proud to be Indian!
Happy Independence day!
Dear Tantu Enthusiast,
We had celebrated first ever Handloom Day last week on 7th August, 2015. As we know, there are many world famous textiles native to India. I had been to a Textile exhibition on 1st March, 2015 in Bengaluru. I was happy to find a good collection of handloom cotton shirts, Bengali cotton/silk saris, brocades, Chikankari suits/saris by sellers from various parts of India. They were traditional yet very fashionable. The price range was very reasonable. Below are some photographs clicked at Bharatiya Craftmela, enjoy!
