Poush Mela is one of the attractions of Bengal during the Bengali month of Poush. The fair not only present a glimpse of rural Bengal and its culture, it is a means of livelihood for many rural artisans who sell their craft in this fair. I heard Shantiniketan is a place where it is most popular but can anyone tell me other places where Poush Mela is held too? I would also love to know more about the crafts sold at these fairs.
