If you thought West Bengal was notorious for those mouth watering roshogullahs and Rabindra Sangeet, then think again. Swayambhar Nari, a women-based voluntary organisation from Kolkata, is at YWCA, Secunderabad with an exhibition of handicrafts from the artisans of West Bengal.

Different stalls have been put-up with a range of handiworks from the land of Rabindranath Tagore. Entering the YWCA hall, you firstly, come across the stall with different items moulded out of jute. There are hanging chairs at Rs. 550, with shades of white and brown, which can hold upto 250 kgs of weight.

You can also have a jute swing hammock that costs Rs. 700 and comes with a seven year warranty. Browsing through the stall, there are coasters, wall hangings and also bags made from jute.

The next stall you will cross, stocks casual salwar suits in cotton. Kantha lovers need not be disappointed. You will get a lot of hand-embroidered kurtas, khadi and raw silk with the famous kantha work in different lengths and patterns.

There are also stalls dedicated to metal jewellery. Tussar sarees with Madhubani paintings and kantha stitching works are the centre of attraction, priced at Rs. 1,700 onwards.

Men needn't be disappointed, as you can find casual kurtas of cotton, with a wave of colours to choose from, with a price tags of Rs. 250 only. Leather bags, bags from Shantiniketan, brassware, skirts and tops for women, are also worth your time before you wind-up.
