Udaipur: On the auspicious occasion of Ganesh Chaturthi, Lakshyaraj Singh Mewar inaugurated the recently published book on Rajasthan's popular handicrafts authored by former Joint Director of Information and Public Relations, Pannalal Meghwal.
Lakshyaraj Singh Mewar commended the artistic, cultural, and heritage writings of author Pannalal Meghwal. He stated that Meghwal is an ardent supporter of art, culture, and heritage preservation and promotion. Mewar expressed his delight in learning that the author Meghwal has written 15 books on art, culture, and heritage, with over 750 articles published in various newspapers and magazines. Meghwal explained that traditional handicrafts have been practiced in Rajasthan for generations, but the younger generation is now showing less interest in these arts, leading to the disappearance of such crafts. In response, this book has been written to preserve and promote vanishing handicrafts.
Meghwal revealed that his book on Rajasthan's popular handicrafts includes 41 vanishing handicrafts like Kharaad, Kaavad, Phad, Pichwai, Theva, Moleda, Murtikala, Sallaavas Dari, and Woodcraft, among others. This book is highly beneficial for art enthusiasts and competitive exam aspirants. On this occasion, Lakshyaraj Singh Mewar was also presented with a set of the author's ten books. The event was attended by Piyush Meghwal, Director of Event Makers, Tejendra Meghwal, Advocate, Mirza Abrar Beg, and Amarish Paliwal.
