The ICCR crafts carnival will be a celebration of art. "The fair will highlight how India's craft practices can help balance the ecology of the planet while sustaining India's cultural heritage, local livelihoods and meeting the Millennium Development Goals. The works depend on clean air, good soil, greenery, forest and plants, clean water etc.," the ICCR President elaborated.
