It's not just the powers that be that are looking south. What the rest of the world is to India in terms of economics, the rest of India is to the eastern states. Well, there's someone to make us feel rich!

An exhibition of traditional and colorful crafts of Eastern India - Orissa, Bihar, West Bengal and Jharkhand - is being held for a week at the YMCA with the State government's support. The intention is to popularize the products of one region in another. C S Ramalakshmi, Commissioner, Women Empowerment, will inaugurate the exhibition.

About 50 stalls will be set up, and the handicrafts that will be on display are Mithila paintings from Bihar (for which artists use natural colors), Madhubani hand-painted saris, dress materials and other hand printed textiles.

Also, South Indian products such as toys made of jute, wall hangings, Kantha stitched saris and dresses, leather purses, bags from Shantiniketan, patta chitra paintings and jewelry from Jharkhand, bamboo products from Siliguri in West Bengal, Oriya paintings depicting scenes from the Mahabharata and Krishna Leela, and embroidery and crochet material from Sikkim will be on display and for sale.

Please contact Sadanand at 780-1936/98480-25051 for further details.
