Handicrafts are devices or works of art that are made completely by hand or by the use of relatively simple tools. Such goods are usually made in the traditional way of manufacturing goods. Therefore, the knowledge of the art of craft is usually passed down from one generation to another. The items made using these traditional methods of manufacturing are usually produced in smaller quantities and they often represent the culture or religious beliefs of the community that makes them. The goods are also handmade from natural materials that are found in the environment of the particular economy.

Third President of India: Dr. Zakir Hussain

Dr. Zakir Hussain 

India: Third President of India

Born: AD 1897 Died: AD 1969 

Dr Zakir Hussain was one of those nationalist Muslim leaders who followed the Gandhian principles all their lives and who spent a major part of life in fighting for the cause of freedom. He chose the field of education to work for, although he worked with Gandhiji for the upliftment of Harijans, for propagating khadi and such other reconstruction programmes. Gandhiji's programme for basic education, elementary skills and moral education held more appeal to him and he worked whole-heartedly for it. Establishment of the Jamia Millia of Delhi is the result of his efforts.

Dr. Zakir Hussain held high posts after independence, viz. Governor of Bihar in 1957, Vice-president of India in 1962, President of India in 1967. He was also the Chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University from 1948-56. 

Dr. Zakir Hussain
As a writer and a staunch believer in Indian culture, Dr Hussain stands out apart. He wrote several books for the reformation and development of Indian education. He was a symbol of secularism. In 1963, he was awarded "Bharat Ratna" in recognition of his services rendered to the nation.

Dr Zakir Hussain was born in Hyderabad in a respectable family. He got his basic education in Aligarh. Later, he went to Germany for higher education. Gandhiji was all praise for the work he did for basic education. He will always be remembered as a great patriot, a social worker and an educationist.
