Delhi completed its 100 years yesterday on Dec 12, 2011. “Happy Birthday Delhi!” to began with!
So yesterday, I and a few of my friends went out to click some pictures of this awesome city showing its various colors.. turned out, it can’t be compiled in one post, and neither can it be clicked in one day! So I’ll upload more as they come, meanwhile..

A recent trip to Kutch district in Gujarat was far more than I had thought it would be. I expected that Id see some village, some artesian, some desert and I would try to get some pictures. But perhaps I had imagined less. Far less!

This trip showed how much is left for us to see, and more importantly understood. What I saw was a rich heritage untouched from industrialization (well almost, till lately) suspended in time, and immortalized by their Handicraft. The craftsmen are truly God-sent, but it is sad to know that they are not completely getting what they deserve most -Acknowledgement.

Id like to take this platform today, to bring to your notice, the people, their art and their self-less endeavour to keep it alive. But before that, a brief go-through of the place and the trip  :)

A mini pick-up lorry, and don’t miss the paint! No one does kitsch like India!

A Temple, and the flags..

Sunset at the Great Runn of Kutch, a White saline desert. I hadn’t witnessed such a sight before! 

The tradition, still prevalent..

How could I have missed the Turban!  :P

And the journey..

(I was accompanied by a few of my colleagues, forming a design team which went there and did this project. You might want to read from a different perspective, perhaps Legend of the 16 tribes and the soul of the embroidery art: http://saumyanagar.wordpress.com/2011/04/27/44/ )
