One thought on “About the team

  1. Team from Rajasthan – Dr.Nikkee Chaturvedi, Shagufta Bajpai, Meenakshi Morya. Day One has been fascinating , getting to know the interest of the visitors pertaining to specific objects. Women were earnest about the details of fabrics and the designs of yesteryear were compared to the contemporary patterns. Menfolk were found to be immediately attracted towards the sports section displays of Jodhpurs, Fiery night Polo ball, Ganjifeh : the Dashavtara round playing cards.
