If you wanted a look and feel of the applique work and golden sequins on a chunari from Jaipur then you do not have to go far! The artisans from Rajasthan, some of who have enlisted as borrowers on Rang De are in Bangalore this week !
If you live in the city or in the vicinity ( take or leave a few hundred odd kilometers), Bangalore is where you should be headed this festive season!
Drive down to the Karnataka Chitrakala Parishat on Kumara Krupa Road, Bangalore between the 2nd and the 11th January 2009, anytime between 10 am and 8 pm and shop at stall no.5 (Udyogini) to show your solidarity to the Rang De cause!
Udyogini represents the interests of such micro enterprises as those represented on Rang De by participating in exhibitions to boost sales of the embroidered products, expose the rural entrepreneurs to consumer preferences in the urban world, build sustainable market linkages, help their growth and enhance their income. Udyogini’s ongoing efforts have helped the women in Rajasthan to build their capacities to ensure quality and timely delivery.
Its never too late to make a resolve this new year.
Resolve to support the Rang De cause in 2009.
