haha, you seem to like little colourfull things hanging around!
and yes, it's all called origami. i took it on my former campus' Japanese Festival, so there were surely many origami[s] like those. maybe if you look at it, you'd like it.
no not really.. its more like an india boom here right now. we have like bollywood dance nights in discos, they sell a lot of indian things everywhere (tea, spices, clothes etc.), they try to make more people interested in things like yoga etc.
its fun seeing how all this is getting so much more populare here all of a sudden
