» Following this paper’s series of hard-hitting reports, officials to finally throw open Jogeshwari crafts village to the public on October 14
‘After much follow-up with the administration, Shilpgram will now be opened for citizens. Since the appointment of a manager is yet to take place for its commercial purpose, the administration has agreed to keep it open during the evening for visitors’ HERE is some good news for citizens. After mid-day’s consistent reports about the delay in its inauguration, the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation (BMC) will open the city’s first arts and crafts village, Shilpgram tomorrow.
The Shilpgram has fountains, a gazebo, a children’s play area, an amphitheatre, and shops that will sell authentic handicrafts. The park is full of murals of ‘Bara Balutedar’, which was a village servant system of 12 trades, like barbers, washers, potters, carpenters, etc.
