Yesterday I got up at 5am and started covering the festivity of Makar Sankranti or popularly known as Kite Festival of Jaipur. Entire day I clicked many pictures some beautiful portraits, actions and events which I might share in future. But when I sat for selection of pictures today morning for the post, I got stuck to this picture and somehow I felt that this picture has summed up my entire Makar Sankranti or Kite Festival of Jaipur 2018 for me.

Mobile shot taken at India Industrial Fair which is one of the largest industrial trade show in Rajasthan. It is going on from 5th-8th January, 2018, at Jaipur Exhibition and Convention Centre (JECC), Sitapura Industrial Area, Jaipur, Rajasthan, India.
I did not found it very interesting and it was very immature. For example the only exit is at the end of second exhibition hall so if you had entered the first hall and didn’t like the exhibition you can’t escape. When I asked the officials that how can I exit in between they said you can’t. You have to go through the entire exhibition cover even the empty stalls of both the halls and then only you will be able to escape which was a long boring walk.

Play Re Gailyaa by Kapil & Priyadarshini
A musical drama ‘Re Gailyaa’ by Kapil and Priyadarshini was staged in Rangayan. The play was based on a folk tale and revolved around the story of an absent minded and illiterate boy ‘Bhomya’. He neither studies nor goes to the school despite of his mother’s scolding. One day Bhomya gets a stomach ache due to which he has to go to another village. Over there a tragedy ensues with Bhomya which becomes a laughing stock for the audience.
Play Anjali Sharma Urf Anji by Rajendra Panchal

Determined to find a right match, she sets out to search her dream man herself. During this journey Anji comes across several funny as well as difficult situations. The climax persuades the play’s audience to re-examine its value system especially the one concerning women.
