A gaint wooden square frame with hand-carved work and a clock in the middle remained the centre of attraction for the visitors at the Indo-Pak International Expo that began at Hotel Gulmor on Thursday.
A closer walk through the stall — Medieval India — showed how gracefully the clocks with pure historic and ethnic touch can give a new dimension to our daily activity of watching time multiple times a day.
Talking to Newsline, Sameer Bakshi, director of Medieval India, on their first visit to Ludhiana, said: “We have forgotten the importance of wall clocks with the advent of phones and laptops but we aim to re-define the experience of wall clocks. We have been manufacturing these ethnic clocks for 15 years and this visit to Ludhiana is the first one. We are manufacturing them in Jaipur.”
A clock with Buddha replication or zodiac signs carved out in copper, or the one with all ancient coins — every clock told a different story from history. “This clock is made of coins which are not available now like 1 paisa, 2 paisa, 5 paisa and annas. Similarly, every clock has something to do with history and all are hand-made,” said Bakshi, adding that “clocks range from Rs 800 to Rs 85,000 to suit every pocket”.

Another attraction was the street food from Lahore which also won an award at the Trade Fair held at Pragati Maidan, New Delhi. Kashif Azam from Gawal Mandi, Lahore, said, “Our specialties are sheikh kabab, halwa puri and malai tikka. It is our ancestral business and we have also visited Amritsar, Delhi and Jalandhar. We are famous for street food of Pakistan.”
However, the low footfall on day 1 irked Pak traders. Imran, a cloth trader, said, “There has been a below average response and footfall is very low. We think that the event was not publicised properly and this will lead to huge losses for traders from Pak who have spent a lot to come here.”
