Surajkund Mela, Delhi
Every year in the month of January, an international crafts festival is held in Surajkund, India, a village on the outskirts of Delhi. Traditional craftsmen (artists, painters, weavers and sculptors) from all parts of the country participate in this annual celebration named as the “Surajkund Crafts Mela” or "Surajkund designer’s Village”. I lived in Gurgaon, Haryana in 2005 and 2006 and having recently returned to India and equipped with one of the first ever Digital SLR (Canon Digital Rebel), the mela was the perfect place to hone my photographic skills. The colors, the faces, the art was inspirational.
