Witnessing Monday blues, people? Take yourselves and your senses out for a treat, just like we did, by visiting Phuhaar Utsav, a lifestyle exhibition in Jaipur. It is being hosted at KK Square from 21st-23rd September.
We visited the exhibition this morning just an hour after it started and like all shopping places, there was an animated excitement in the atmosphere. People barging in; stall owners, most of which were women, shuffling their products on display; colors, so many of them, all around in the forms of sarees, cushion covers, apparels, etc.; and bling, a lot of bling, in shape of earrings, shimmering head bands, and other cool accessories, which caught our eye.
Anyway, amidst our little tour around the place, guess who we bumped into? Neha Sharma, the art and craft entrepreneur we chatted with sometime back! Remember her quilling and origami pieces? Visit her stall in case you want to grab some. She showed us around her hand-made products ranging from bookmarks to trunks to photo-frames to paintings!
Meanwhile, I strolled down the aisle and stopped just after a few seconds, as a stunning painting caught my attention. I spoke to Mukta Basandani, the lady at the stall, and discerning my inquisition, she kindly informed me that it wasn’t a painting but a rangoli. Also, she told me that they are teaching how to make such rangolis at this 3-day long exhibition for a price of Rs. 1000.
Mukta is an entrepreneur who exercises her creativity on glass bottles and glasses in varied colorful ways. My eyes were glued to the intriguing and fun stuff on the display. She added, “I work from home because my daughter is very young and needs me. I receive bulk orders, customization orders, and I operate online too!”
It was a feast for the eyes witnessing such enigmatic and lively women displaying their creativity with so much fondness! JWB loves women like these who are on an expedition to shine and conquer the world!
Visit the exhibition today, tomorrow, and day-after at KK Square, Prithviraj Road, C-scheme, Jaipur, to make your mind, heart andddd shopping bag happy!
