I always look at such items.”

Stalls from Thailand caught fancy of residents. It had earnings, necklaces and other products. The velvet-based material also catched eye balls. Rahul Mahajan, a businessman, said, “We as a family have been coming to the fair and look forward to enjoy it in the future, too.
