Today, there is an interesting situation confronting the handicrafts scenario in India. There is an effort to take the beautifully and painstakingly created crafts out into the midst of the people, to make them more accessible as it were. Yet, the ironic part is that these handicraft traditions which were part and parcel of our culture and society have moved from an integral part of our life to a state of neglect and now presently to a perceived inaccessible elitist pedestal.
Dilli Haat is like an answer to this situation. It provides a platform for bringing the traditional crafts to a mainstream audience - the common man. This Food and Craft Bazaar is a treasure house of Indian culture, handicrafts and ethnic cuisine, located right in the heart of the city.
