    vinod, IKEA – the big box store send some kind of wood dolls (not toys ) and there is a riot about it. everybody wants that .it is a shame – indian artisans are fighting for their art to stay alive or their art when photocopied and labelled french or italian everybody runs for it and suddenly it becomes designer !! And the original designers are elbowed ! farmers commiting suicide was only a start
