India is rich in culture and tradition.

Each state has its different traditional products.

Here I am going to talk about a Punjabi traditional object named  Pakhi.

Pakhi is a handmade fan used in the past for different purposes.

But it is still widely used in many urban areas.

I bought it from the market at my cousin's wedding.

Because it is used in the wedding ceremony in Punjab.

It is a round-shaped handmade beautiful embroidered pakhi (fan).

The elegant artwork done on both sides of the fan gives it a stunning look.

which makes it the best prop for using on Giddha dance performance on stage.

Its handle is made up of wooden steel. 

It can also be used as a showpiece.

People use it for decoration purposes, they give a Punjabi traditional look to their drawing-room by hanging it on the wall.

It can also be used to get cool air in summer.

Last summer, when there was no electricity in our town I used this handmade fan to get relief from the heat.

I like this because it connects me to my culture and traditions.

Yes, of course. We must remember that the things we consider new and modern today will become traditions for the future. So, the traditional things of the past were different and as time passes those things become antiques and so become more valuable.

Not necessarily. The things made today also have good quality. Actually, it depends on the person

Yes, of course. Traditions are our roots. They keep connected to our past. Without traditions we would feel cut off from our roots.
