The other day I took a friend visiting from Chennai to that most artsy of markets in Delhi: Dilli Haat. And hello, was I surprised! Her rapture revealed to me how much I take this place for granted. In the ninety minutes we had, my friend had lapped up skirts, trinkets, wooden artifacts and jute hangings, and if time and wallet had permitted, the list would certainly have been longer 🙂
In any case, it gave me a good opportunity to get trigger-happy and bring to my dear blog readers a small sampling of the goodies on display at Dilli Haat. For those who don’t belong to the city, a one line introduction to this place would be: a crafts bazaar with rotating stalls from all over the country, providing a golden opportunity to indigenous craftsmen to showcase their wares, and to city-folk to adorn themselves and their homes with unique ethnic pieces.
Hope you enjoy the pictures that follow!
