The Bangladesh pavilion in Delhi Commonwealth Women Association (DCWA) and Diplomatic Community Bazar has drawn a huge number of visitors for its low-cost garment products and traditional food items.

More than 30 countries participated in the fair displaying their renowned products like garments, food, chocolates and beverage items in more than 100 stalls set up inside the fair venue at Nehru Park in the Indian capital on Sunday.

Famous Turkish, Spanish, Indian, European and Asian cuisines attracted a large number of visitors especially from the diplomatic missions in New Delhi, according to a press release received here yesterday.

Different diplomatic missions organised cultural shows, traditional dances and fashion shows depicting their own cultural heritages. Syed Muazzem Ali, Bangladesh high commissioner to New Delhi, and his spouse Tuhfa Zaman Ali, former president of DCWA, inaugurated the Bangladesh pavilion on the fair premises in presence of officials of the high commission and their spouses.

Garments made in Bangladesh such as shirts, sweaters, jackets, and traditional jamdani saris were displayed in the Bangladesh pavillion along with popular food items.

“We are participating in the fair every year with Bangladeshi products and getting huge attention from visitors as they are fond of our garments and delicious food items like pitha, chatpati and biriyani,” said Tuhfa Zaman Ali.

The lion's share of the sales at the fair would be donated to a charity that runs two schools on the outskirts of Delhi for differently abled persons.
