The Making of the OMITF2018

An af’Fair to remember !!!

Where does a Fair(y) tale culminate ? Why, in a palace of course …

With Kings and Queens and Ministers !!!

Giving you brief glimpses of how the Organics Millets International Trade Fair came about … and finally reached its happy ending in the grand environs of the Bangalore Palace grounds.
