    What place is this? Is it the cottage emporium?

    I ve been in travel for past month or so, so didnot comment on blogs nor did I update my blog too often.

    There isnt anything like this craftsmanship here in the U.S.
    Everything is manufactured and a dime a dozen. Although to price is different there, each pot looks like someones hands made each one like taking each breath without pushing a button and making 10 at a time.

    The instrument pots, are they the same as this but with a hole in the side? Meaning do they make them in the same way as these? or is their a special way and material?

    thanks for helping me with my blog.

    Upinder Kaur Bhen Ji,
    You have the perfect formula for blogging!
    You take interesting photos that nobody else gets and you share them. Some blogs are all text, and the text isn't always worth reading :-) It's nice to have a Sikh in India taking unique photos and sharing them with good text.

    This place indeed is Cottage Emporium, at janpath,New Delhi.
    Its a must visit for foreigners, as you can get ethnic Indian items at this place.One can see and hear indian classical music ( sitar,Flute or shehnai) being played.
    Pritam Singh I'll find out about your query.
    Prabhu Singh Thank you for your nice comment.

    I think my other comment could be misunderstood, I typed it wrong.

    I meant handmade items are always better than manufactured things made here in the U.S.

    Just to clear up for other people that will read these comments
