Souvenir hunters throng stalls

Souvenirs and mementos form special part of one’s life. To reminiscence, recollect happy memories, go misty-eyed, and when meeting happens share those with others through these memorabilia.
Cashing in on this innate desire among souvenirs and memento hunters was HAL Families’ Welfare Association at Aero India 2013. Manned by a pleasant quartet of four charming women, their stall, at Hall G, was a beehive of activity, with a near stampede of people drawn in droves, vying for a piece of eye-catching, attractive array of items on display.
In fact, there was more crowd near the stall than at the aerial display area of the five-day showpiece aviation and aerospace spectacle now on at the Yelahanka Air Force Base. Sure enough, there was every reason for the crowd to mill around the stall to pick their choice of collectibles and later stash them away in their homes in showcases or personal cupboards and share it with near and dear ones.
