A little bit of India? For 17 days, that's what you get at Shoppers' Stop this
Independence Day month. For, this shopping festival has artisans and craftsmen
from various parts of India showcasing and selling their wares.
Parikrama, started by Shoppers' Stop in 1997, is held around Independence Day every year. The festival showcases the textile and heritage wealth of India. The theme for Parikrama is based on the five treasures in India - the pearls of ancient wisdom and science, the gems of fine arts and crafts, the wealth in health, the richness in taste and the jewels of the performing arts.
On display will be terracotta, iron craft, rice pearl jewelry, candles, Tanjore paintings, gift bags, cane items, stone carving and miniature paintings, lac bangle making, needle work, brass metal work, wood carvings and Nirmal painting. Parikrama also includes the fine arts, as they are an integral of the cultural fabric of the nation. The festival will feature Shivamani in a recital on August 15, and a sitar, violin and tabla jugalbandi on August 18. There will also be a chaat festival from August 17.
