Mela

Last Saturday, I visited the Annual Crafts Mela (Mela is the Hindi word for fair) at Surajkund. Ever year there's a State thats protrayed as the theme of the Mela, and this year it was Andhra Pradesh. You find all sorts of handicrafts up for sale, plus, there is a lot to eat :-) As anywhere in India, you would find a Swarm of people. This was at the entrance of the place and you find a riot of colors all around.

This is a start to my Surjakund series - hope all of you enjoy the Mela.

it's very pretty, colourful and beautiful, especially the background of the trees is giving the pic a very unique effect.

A riot of color is right, Thomas! I like reading about customs like this. Thanks.
Thomas Mathew: Thanx Ginnie - hope I'll be able to tell you more stories about the customs through my Mela series smile
