Deep Mela, the annual exhibition-cum-sale by Deepshika Mahila Club, is on at the Imperial Gardens in Sikh Village, from 3rd to 5th August. About 200 stalls with participants from all over India such as cities like Kolkata, Jaipur, Mumbai, Chennai, Bangalore and New Delhi, will showcase the best of clothes, rakhis, jewellery, saris, designer wear, handicrafts, gift articles and household goods.
This event has been organized right from the time the club was started, and is an attempt to help women who work from their homes sell what they produce, whether art objects, knitted wear, crocheted items, embroidered things or home made things like papad, pickles, vadis and churans.
The most popular area is the food court with almost 15 stalls selling various varieties of chaat and other mouth watering items. Authentic Indian sweets, ice-creams and cool drinks are also popular. Demonstrations will be held in sari draping, gift wrapping, candle making and makeup, during the 3 days of the mela.
Deepshika Mahila Club is a social welfare organization established in 1965 with just 5 members and currently has about 150 members. Started as a premier voluntary charitable social organization to provide relief to the destitute, orphans and aged, the club has adopted Kanya Gurukul High School (Telugu medium) in 1987 and Kanya Gurukul English Medium School in 2001, with a total strength of 1,000 girls. The club also runs a vocational training center which works towards self-empowerment of women in various fields.
