12th annual Chaithanya Karshika Mela organized by Kottayam Social Service Society at Chaithanya Pastoral Centre, Thellakom came to an end today. Started off as something small, the noble initiative was given a terrific welcome and is now the biggest & greatest fair outside the town.
Apart from the display and sale of agri-horti-products, a number of self-help groups in the District have setup stalls that showcase their crops, handicrafts and much more. Amusement facilities, general shopping, medical exhibitions & checkups, innovative product demos (like the cow-milking equipment), a plethora of cultural activities and really huge number of visitors (not to mention visitors’ vehicles filling either sides of M.C. Road in a 1 km stretch!), make this a much-happening event in Kottayam.
And here goes the photos.
