From October 7 to 23, Indian craft fair Saras Ajeevika Mela will showcase products and art made by women’s self-help groups located across India to boost the sector and promote SHGs.
The Saras Ajeevika Mela will feature 250 stalls from 27 Indian states to showcase handmade fashion and lifestyle goods among others. The exhibition will take place in Gurugram in the Leisure Valley ground in Sector 29, the event organisers announced in a statement.
“The purpose of the Saras Mela is to provide a platform to showcase rural arts and crafts products made by women self-help groups (SHGs) under various government schemes,” said the rural development ministry’s additional secretary Charanjit Singh at a press conference, the Hindustan Times reported.
