And the rest, a certain percentage we keep for people from all over India. So, this year, we have people from Mumbai, Delhi, Gurgaon, Noida, Jodhpur, Jaipur, Amritsar and Kathmandu. So these are the people who come from various parts like Italy, our exhibition is very well known all over India," said Rashi Mehta, an organizer of the exhibition.
