WOMEN’S BAZAAR at C.P. Ramaswami Aiyar Foundations

Women’s day is celebrated every year on 8th March. This day recounts the achievements of women and they are honoured in the society worldwide irrespective of all the national, social, and economic backgrounds.

On this   day, every year C.P. Art Centre organizes an annual exhibition of art, craft, textiles, and imported jewelries and organic food items made and marketed by women to make them feel empowered in their own sense. It is called the Women’s Bazaar. The C.P. Ramaswami Aiyar Foundations, through its various constituents, has been actively involved in women’s development. This Bazaar is held from 8th to 13th March 2018 this year. These are held at both mini and main galleries from 10:00am to 7:00 pm.

This year marks the silver jubilee year of the Women’s Bazaar, and around fifty women’s groups participated, which initially started off with only five women groups. The event was inaugurated by Kalaimamani Ms. M. Sukanya, film actress and dancer on 8th March by 11:00 am.

The event organizer Ms. Shanta has been coordinating all the events and organizing it sincerely for the past twenty five years. In a conversation with her, she said ‘every woman has an individual talent and I strive to bring that out from them and make them feel confident and proud in their own skin’.  The Women’s Bazaar contributes to the Women’s India Association (WIA), NAAM Foundation, Nandini Voice and many such women empowering institution. ‘Earlier, when women were confined to the four walls of the house, their creativity was vividly displayed in various household segments, like tailoring, embroidery, handicrafts, and cooking. This Bazaar acts as a platform for women to exhibit their inner self without hindrance and to cherish the idea of individuality and independence’ She added.

The women’s Bazaar is a great hit amongst the youth, women from both working and home-making background. People frequently enquire about the happening of the Bazaar and when organized it is visited from people belonging to all social classes equally. ‘They are willing to even stay for long hours and make this event a success, both for them and us’ says Ms. Shanta when asked about the interest shown by the women workers. Not only the traders but even the public encourage this Bazaar and are brimming with constructive responses as this is a step towards women to help themselves.
