Paramparaa has been the most awaited event for us and all the other 2nd year SPIC MACAY executive body members as it was an introduction to the way SPIC MACAY works. There was impatience, excitement and hard work: all fruitful.
It began on Oct 4, 2013 and lasted till Oct 7, 2013 at the National Farmer’s Fair. A lot of work was done for decorating the stalls. The centre of attraction was a large painting depicting the ‘unity in diversity’ concept of Indian culture. At wings of the stall, beautiful and expressive Kathakali masks were used.
At Paramparaa ’13, not only ethnic wears, but also the handicrafts such as woodwork, brass work, attractive candles, baskets and other items made up of cane and grass were provided an effective platform for their promotion. It was added with herbal cosmetics and medicines and given the spicy flavour of India by paan, sweet corn, lassi, badi and more; wirework and beads were also an irresistible attraction. The stall was visited by a lot of dignitaries, outsiders and students.
These four days taught us many things and strengthened the special bond amongst the SPIC MACAY family and the memories of Paramparaa ’13 will be cherished for ever…
