Here's the Part - 2 of Day 1 at the Organics and Millets 2017 National Trade Fair, Bengaluru.

Disclaimer: No Insects were Harmed in the Making of This Post. :P :D

There was a Box full of Real Buzzing Bees! Beautiful they were. <3  (I applied a filter to this image because it was too dark and blurry. The bluish reflections are of the glass box.) 

Then there was this Very Interesting 'Swiss pac' Counter where every single thing was Crave worthy!




Sericulture Stall.They displayed all stages of a Silk worm. And that is my hand holding a fully grown worm! :)

Sooooooo Soft and Velvety it was!

Do you remember Ms.Gomathy of Marrie's Malt from THIS post? As i told you, she had a stall at the event too! *yay!*

That is my picture in the Centre of their flexi! *happydance*

Real Palm fruits at her Stall.


There were Stalls from Other States too! This particular one was from Telangana. They support Rural women by making them cultivate Millets and providing them a Trade platform.

Farmer's Assosiation from Uttarakhand Promoting their Local Organic farminng.

Basket full of Sheep wool shavings. They make Blankets out of it.(see next pic)


'Dhanya' Hand processed Millet Products by Dr.Khader from Mysore. He is an Allopathy Doctor who treats his patients successfully in un-conventional ways! I personally heard his speech at an event at The Green path(where i work) and i was so Amazed after hearing his simple theories! I recorded a video of him too which i will upload on this blog someday.

 Millet-based Breakfast mixes.

They had a Farmer's Workshop where they were providing Every single kind of Information a Small-scale Organic Farmer needs to know.

Humongous number of Farmers Attended this Workshop.


 Finally, This Humble Elder man sung such a Beautiful Heart touching Song about Farmers. <3

Perks of work!

The Green path(where i work), Bengaluru, Celebrated their 10 year Anniversary on April 22nd and 23rd. As a part of it, there were many stalls set up by many organic/natural brands. And as i was the official photographer, i got to explore all these Interesting stalls. At each stall, for a few moments, i transformed in to a blogger and snapped a few pics for you all. :) #Lifeofablogger. Multiple personality! What say? :P :D

Get..Sit..Explore!

Copper water bottles! New Addition to the ever famous Copper utensil family! Now you can carry and gulp the healthy water Anytime. Anywhere. (If you don't mind the metallic taste that is. :P)
The elder lady who's the stall was, was also selling Fresh home made Raw Tamarind thokku,A south Indian(esp.,Karnataka and Andhra) speciality. I bought it and oh my...it was super duper tasty and threw me back to my school days when this was a luch box staple of one of my friends and i used to snatch it without fail. :D

They home deliver the Tamarind thokku and all the herbal products anywhere in Bengaluru. Contact: 8453236664, 8951701942

Then came this Interesting Duo whose stall i couldn't step away from! 'Zishta' brand stall. They were selling all kinds of 'Almost Extinct' Utensils! Made out of Rock, Tin, Brass, Cast iron and Clay.

Those Rock vessels(1st pic) and the Tin vessels(bottom left) reminded me of my granny who used to own these. I sooo... wanted to buy them right away but didn't carry cash the first day and on the second day, unfortunately, they did not set up a stall. :( But they are available on Amazon.in! yayyy! So...*happydance*

For any queries, you can mail them at varishta@zishta.com

Here comes Another stall that stole my heart! I hauled my heart out at this stall. <3 I am not gonna tell you what these are. ;) This deserves a seperate post. Can anyone guess what these are?

Marrie's malt - stall. Ms.Gomathy makes this malt out of 25 truly Organic ingredients which includes millets and un-skinned grains/dals/pulses etc., She was kind enough to offer me a sachet. <3 Will review this someday soon. 

P.S: She is going to set up a stall at the Organics and Millets National Trade Fair 2017 which starts from 28th April and ends on 30th April.

'Pinata' Multigrain Snack stall. They had interesting flavour combinations. They also had a Berry bar and Nutty bar. All of them were really tasty but my most favourite one was...(next pic) 

The Apple-Cinnamon one! <3 I emptied half of their sample plate! :P Available on Bigbasket.com .

Just placed an order of 3 packets. :D

Yoga bar. I am sure you are already familiar with this brand. In case you are not, they make healthy snack bars out of seeds, nuts, grains, raw chocolate and many more 'good-for-you' ingredients.

My personal fav is: Nuts & Seeds crunch.

Pssst..Did you guess what the 4th pic's about? Yes? Then Let me know in the Comments section below. :)

Are you going to the National Trade fair? If yes, then remember that you might bump in to me! :D (Read the beginning of the post for some identification clues :P)
