Exhibitions are held to give an impetus to art, industry and agriculture. For holding an exhibition a suitable site is generally selected. In an-exhibition are we the rare opportunity of knowing many things, and new things I had heard of exhibitions on Science, arts and crafts but was not aware of agricultural exhibitions. The exhibitions organised by Government or some institutions show us the improvement of our country in many fields. I had been to a book exhibition.
The exhibition I visited during the last part of February was an agricultural one. The place was not very far from the town of mine. The opening date and closing date had been announced in all popular newspapers. The police officials of our town rendered great help in conducting the exhibitions.
The students of nearby schools and college acted as volunteers. The agricultural products were of numerous kinds and had been brought by cultivators. The vegetables included brinjals, gourds, bitter gourd, cucumber, potatoes, chilies and vegetables of unusual size. The exhibition acted as a help for the producers to advertise their goods.
Some people received medals for their agricultural exhibits. In addition to the agricultural exhibitions there were exhibitions on shoe making, needle work, embroidery work. The exhibition was organised for the promotion of agriculture and it was a great success. The stalls were decorated with great care. A temporary fencing was there for enclosing the vast waste land outside the town.
I had been to the exhibition accompanied by my friends. From the agricultural exhibition I purchased a big mango. The rush was heavy in the exhibitions. The exhibition continued for about three weeks. It was an opportunity to buy seeds, plants and vegetables at discounted rate. The exhibition was a delightful one.
