The engineering feats of India and other countries were also displayed. Since I was a kid I have been always attracted to science, specifically chemistry, because I have always had a lot of questions about how everything is composed. The grounds were tastefully decorated. I enjoyed the whole exhibit because I saw or heard some new cool science gadgets, stuffs, equipments and ideas. Man is by nature curious to know the unknown. The businessmen visit these exhibitions for new fields of business.
This event opened my mind and now I am sure I want to be a scientist. A comparative study of this progress made by different States enabled me to have a fair idea of different kinds of per capita food available to people in different States. As longs as I passed time there, I felt I was entering into the vast horizon of scientific knowledge, It opened my knowledge and I started inspecting everything with rapt attention and closeness. In the Science pavilion were displayed the peaceful uses to which atomic energy could be put. Leemarose, Headmistress of Das Navismatha Primary School inaugurated it. Everyone in this village just seemed to change into these perfect characters when they came. Also, because of the very funny and silly speaker or host because they have their own language.
Exhibitions of social nature are also held. The bus dropped us a little away from the main gate. To our delight, the craftsman from the Kashmiri stall also got a prize. An exhibition which I visited recently was very interesting. Goods of different countries are exhibited in the international exhibitions.
Robert Selvaraj, teachers of science and other staff members were present. All the rooms in which the fair was held were decorated with charts. Now-a-days, painters have to display their paintings to bring them to the notice of the people. Different items made of bamboo were seeing great sale. There were numerous posters hanging on the walls. Preparations for this exhibitions started several months before the day of inauguration.
We could see their 10 to 13 year- olds sawing pieces of wood or hammering them together, to make scientific models. The exhibition was held at a vast open ground which was covered with tents, steel structures and plastic coverings in artistic designs. What we all liked best were the shawls from Kashmir and the stone sculptures from Andhra Pradesh. I went there with my cousin who was a student of tenth class at that time. We enjoyed a puppet show. The statue was made so skillfully that it appeared the statue is about to speak something.
Potteries, textiles, shawls, handicrafts, paintings, jewellery, handlooms, jutecrafts were just some of them. The exhibition was organised by Small Scale Industries Department. There were textile products manufactured by local weavers. We then went to the stationery shop. In Durgapur this is the very good fair than any other fair. There were several machines, devices and gadgets which I had not heard or seen before.
As a matter of fact there is none who does not benefit by going to an exhibition. We were stunned by its grandeur and beauty. Finally we came to home at 9 pm. There were many restaurants and stalls. It is really amazing What man can do with his two hands. I hope you'll like it. The skills of handicraftsmen were surprising.
There were hundreds of exhibits for the domestic use. First there were agricultural exhibits which the farmers had displayed. As the host team, Essar School students participated only for the spirit of participation, sharing and learning and not in the competitive section. Buying and selling worth thousands of rupees was done. The second gallery was about fun with science. They were enjoying the handicrafts items. It was a big exhibition, though not as big as the international ones held in Delhi.
