This was followed by a visit to the handicrafts fair which had over 20 states in India displaying traditional handicrafts. Most of the stalls had work done by women’s self-help groups while others had eco-friendly handicrafts and products.
A food fair which also had cuisine from different parts of the country as well as a Fish Food Festival was an added attraction.
