Twisted and turned

The ITPO and the government ministry/agency behind the IITF should evaluate the Trade Fair and do a check on the original agenda with which it was started 33 years ago. In my teens it indeed was a Trade Fair but now its nothing more than a shoping festival. I don't see how what happens for 2 weeks in Novenmber at Pragati Maidan advances Trade or commerce in India... unless retail sales is Trade and Commerce. It is seen by shopkeepers, retailers or brands as an opportunity to sell a lot of stuff in a span of 2 weeks and the ITPO is more than obliging in making it a reality.
