A Visit to An Exhibition

Essay No. 01

        Recently an exhibition was held in our district town. It was not so grand and affair as the Manufacturers’ Exhibition held in Delhi some years ago; yet it was well represented and well-attended. It was remarkable in many respects.

        The exhibition was organised by the District authorities. It was held in an open maidan, A temporary fence was erected on all sides and temporary stalls were built to keep exhibits. There were agricultural exhibits. Farmers had sent these. There were vegetables of all kinds and sizes. One farmer sent a peculiar turnip. Every body praised it. It was surprise to see a plum which resembled a red apple. There were fine specimens of cereals, sweet potatoes and tomatoes of different kinds and colours.

        Specimens of local pottery were also exhibited. There were pots and pans, cups and saucers. But what attracted us most were artificially made fruits and flowers. The         shades of colour were so beautifully laid that they deceived even the sharpest eye. Then there were the textile products prepared by the local weavers. The muslin made by a weaver was so light and fine that it appeared as if it were a specimen of the ancient Dacca art. Besides, a blacksmith had sent models of an aeroplane and an anti-aircraft gun. A carpenter had sent a cabinet for a radio set. An artist had sent a statue of Lord Buddha.

        The exhibition lasted for ten days or so. Thousands of people visited it and buying and selling worth thousands of rupees were done. The District authorities were highly pleased with its success. Hundreds of rupees were collected by the sale of tickets. It was decided that the money be sent in improving the condition of the district hospital.

        The need for organising such exhibitions in our villages and towns is great at present. Local skill in not deficient and if properly tapped. It can add immensely to the wealth of India.

A Visit to An Exhibition

Exhibition is the place where traders, merchants and industrialists exhibit their new products for publicity and sale. The exhibition may contain all products or separate exhibitions like Book Exhibition, Horticultural show, Exhibition of Electronic Goods, Engineering Exhibition, Science Exhibition etc. can also be conducted. Exhibitions are conducted in school and colleges also to improve the scientific talent of students. Last month, I saw an Agricultural Exhibition at the Pragati Maidan. So far as Agriculture is concerned, there is not much in it, not of much value or interest to the common man and I seriously doubt if Agriculture Experts can learn anything worthwhile from it. Go from pavilion to pavilion; and you find nothing new in it nothing you should know and will like to know.

First pavilion I visited was the prestigious ‘Krishi Bhawan’ nearest to the gate, while coming from the Tilak Bridge. It was a pavilion with a highly complicated zigzag tunnel, in which once you enter, you could not get out. If you wanted you had to pass on and till the end there was no escape, although I very much wanted a short way out. They showed you forests and fountains and common agricultural stuff, which you see everywhere in India and I was indeed pretty tired of seeing them. It was full of photos and common articles; it was completely boring.

Then I entered the Goa and Daman pavilion, built on a modest scale under a round roof; but it did bring every possible agricultural product from Goa and Daman instead of merely showing photogenic landscape, which indeed it did not. It showed dull and drab reality and one should be ready to see reality and must not feel bored. Reality is reality Infact, I long wanted to visit Goa but the exhibition quite disenchanted me. I have come to know that Goa and Daman are no different from other seashore locations of India.

Then I saw the Russian pavilion housed in a very big hall but the only really worthwhile item it displayed was a giant tractor outside the hall; and nothing inside except rows upon rows of photos dealing with agriculture and industry as well as political leaders and ideological slogans, including one “Welcome to Moscow”! You were there only to welcome the photo of Moscow! In short there was pretty little outside the Russian pavilion and very little inside the Russian pavilion.

A Visit to an Exhibition

Outline: Introduction — type of exhibition, its site and size — our first impression —pavilions and private stalls — other things — children’s corner — home.

A grand exhibition was held in our town along the riverside during the’ Diwali holidays. My parents, brother, sister and I went to see it one evening.

It was an exhibition showing the recent progress of Maharashtra in various fields. The exhibition took up nearly half a kilometer on the riverside. A strong corrugated-tin sheet fence ran round it. There were long, winding queues near the ticket windows.

Our first impression on entering the grounds was that the whole vast area looked like a veritable fairyland. Every nook and corner of the exhibition had artistic and beautiful designs. At the gate there was a gigantic statue of Shivaji Maharaj. The gate was ornamental and constructed beautifully. The vast space was decorated in bright and gay colours and lit up with countless lights: There was a milling crowd inside with a great hustle and bustle. People in their best holiday clothes slowly crept through the gate and came to the grounds.

There were pavilions for different districts of Maharashtra. They showed all that was best in them such as handicrafts, specimens of art, photos of important places, animals and so on. Of all those pavilions the pavilion of Pune was undoubtedly the best. It was shaped like Parvati Hill in Pune and gave a vivid impression of Maharashtra. The exhibits in the pavilions were all novel and attractive. We found the display of modern fighting weapons in the Pune district pavilion particularly striking.

There were also private stalls displaying a wide variety of goods. These stalls were like miniature shops. They had for show or for sale such goods as cloth, pottery, crockery, glassware, chinaware, agricultural implements, musical instruments, and numerous articles for everyday use.

While the pavilions and stalls made a very interesting sight, what attracted us most was the Children’s Corner. It was jammed with small children, teenagers and even adults. There was plenty of entertainment in it. It had an amusement park, toy-railway, merry-go-round, giant-wheel with tumbling boxes, joy-ride having painted wooden horses, cinema-show, magic-show and so on. Ice-cream stands were in plenty in the area. Everybody was having a most thrilling time there. I too had my share, of fun with my parents, brother and sister.

We felt like buying up the whole exhibition. However, we bought a few things, such as stuffed birds, woodcarvings, sarees and so on. Time flew like it never did while we were at the exhibition.

Soon it was nearly midnight. So we left the exhibition and went Home, cheerful and happy.
