From the 1st of February 2012, Surajkund Handicraft Mela would commence at the Surajkund Fair Ground in Faridabad, Haryana.
Held every year from 1st of February to 15th of February, Surajkund Handicraft Fair is not only a platform to showcase and sell handicrafts, traditional Indian cloths, decorative items and also some delicious food, but it also happens to be a folk dance and song fest with folk dancers and singers from all over India converging at the mela to showcase their talent to the general public.
I have been regularly visiting Surajkund Mela for past several years, mainly because it is simply a fantastic opportunity for photography and to enjoy the folk dance performances from across India.
Like earlier years, this year too I would likely be heading there for photography and in case any one is interested in joining me, they are most welcomed to.
