Chandigarh, Oct 19, 2019 (Yes Punjab News)
CII Chandigarh Fair 2019 being held at Parade Ground here is eliciting very good response from the visitors. One of the major attractions at the Fair is the stall set up by the Government of Uttarakhand.
Oora Infini an organization in Uttarakhand, wholly run by 300 women voluntarily working to promote swadeshi products, have set up an amazing example to the world stating that ‘She’ has the power to create, nurture and transform. The name Oora Infini is synonym to ‘Sab Theek hai’ making women realize that they are less than none.
The different types of LED lights introduced by them are 100% Indian. “These lights are superior to the ordinary lights available in the market. Our lights are expensive but highly durable and reparable.
These lights don’t heat up easily and remain cool even after continuous usage. We hardly make use of machines in manufacturing our products, says the exhibitor. These women also impart training to jail inmates and juvenile homes; and women from Nari Niketan.
They are being supported by the Government of Uttarakhand under PMEGP scheme.
The pristine beauty of the State of Uttarakhand is no secret, but what is less known is the exquisite craftsmanship of the state’s artisans in handloom and handicraft articles.
The traditional woollen coat of Uttarakhand is also available at the Fair. The speciality of the coat is that it is made of sheep wool – Marino. It is in huge demand by visitors. Its woollen shawls, sweaters, jackets, mufflers and cardigans for male and female buyers are priced between Rs 900 to Rs 15,000.
Kurtis and dresses for kids with traditional handicraft from Uttarakhand is another hit at the Fair. The Department has brought natural cereals, pulses, wheat flour, grains, spices, edible oils, herbs and even different varieties of organic tea.
“It is the second day and we have sold almost all our stock. Visitors are loving organic pulses and vegetables grown in the hill state. People are becoming more inclined towards organic food items considering their health benefits. We are extremely happy with the kind of response we have received at CII Chandigarh Fair, which is very encouraging,” said, a representative at the Uttarakhand stall.
