I find this site good for my search work.

I did go through the content on your website about Chittara and noticed that you have indeed profiled just one artisan - Eshwar Naik.

I would like to bring to your notice that there is an equally committed, upcoming artist - Radha Sullur, who has made a huge career choice ( a Deewaru girl from a remote village called Sullur in Malnad, Shimoga district, Karnataka) by committing herself to Chittara. I would like you to conisder uploading content on her as well just to increase the artisan database.

Radha is also a registered artisan with the Government as a genuine artist.

Here are her contact details. Radha Sullur, Saidoor Post, Sagar taluk, Shimoga district 577401. Tel - 09880793347.

Hoping to see her included soon,

Best Regards,
Nidhi Tiwari

I would like to congratulate for choosing & organising fantastic and realy touchy subject about snake charmers at central park delhi.

Realy great to see that just because its the realy root, culture folk of our county. But one thing is to be noticed that there should be some solution for snake charmers so that they can earn regularly & can keep alive their ancient art as well. Plz consider it or try to give solution to those or govt. Realy great to see that. Once again i congratulate you for this nice & touchy seminar.




Really happy to see an effort such as this. I came across your site while searching for the journal Rupam. It has been listed on your Bibliography page. Is it possible to share copies of one particular edition that I have been looking for (1927 No. 32 - specifically translation of an article by Olderberg)?

Thanks and best of luck in all your endeavors,Surya

Please let mehave the list of that you have planned to be taken place in July and August 2007 (Crafts Exhibitions, Seminars etc.)

Hello from Aid to Artisans.

I seem to remember that you published a piece about handspun cotton sometime in the past year. I can't find it with your search function so I wonder if I remember wrongly and/or if you can help me find it. Iam trying to put together something about the environmental and health issues of cotton preparatory to working in West Africa on cotton artisan products.
Thanks so much.

Hello, Your site has been quite a revelation!! You'll have done some great work in the craft sector. As a person who is passionate about crafts, I have been thinking (mostly just) how crafts could be nurtured to provide employment in rural areas. Your site offers enormous amounts of information and I will have to make multiple visits to your site to take in all that has been put up. Just to bring to your notice, I could not find any mention of lacquered wooden toys from Etikoppaka. Has it been listed under some name?

Regards, Suresh Bhagavatula

Thank you for the very nice web site and valuable resources and information on SE Asian crafts.

I am writing to you from the Institute of Rural Management Anand (IRMA) I am a second year student here. I was searching on the internet with regards to handicrafts market and reached your website. I must say this is commendable effort.

Actually I have been searching for some data on handicrafts sales from the state of Himachal Pradesh. I come from that state so a special affinity for the place. Somehow I find that data on intenet is not easily available. I will really appreciate if you can guide me on where to locate this data.
