Like the traditional Mojris we presented last week, this time Udaipurtimes is bringing to our readers Handmade Paper, Photo-Album, Leather & Silk Diaries. We visited Shiva Handicrafts near Laxmi Temple in Bhatiyani Chohatta. The Owner Mahendra Singh alias Babu was our host in this beautiful world of handmade diaries. He is in this business from past 6 years, prior to that he worked as a guide and has good command over Swedish, Hebrew and Dutch language. In his shop he sells Diaries, Photo Albums, Journals and Folders all purely handmade. He told us an astonishing fact that, the trend and manufacturing of all hand made Diaries and similar articles started only from Udaipur many years ago. With time it spread to other areas of the state and country. It is very difficult to know the exact year or time period when these were first shown to world. Till today all the diaries are manufactured by the same process as it was done since it started. Binding is done with extensive use of needle and thread without the use of any adhesive. Covers are either of leather or clothe with beautiful embroidery on the front. Sometimes pictures depicting Indian gods and goddesses are also used to cover these albums or diaries.
