If you happen to be in Mumbai, I recommend you check out some of the events at the ongoing Kala Ghoda Arts Festival. Many interesting workshops, discussions, film viewings and art exhibitions are taking place, and the street food at Kala Ghoda is quite rocking—especially the mutton dhansak at the Joss stall, which I shall attack again sometime this evening.
I’m supposed to be part of a panel discussion or two, and I’m also one of the judges of the Flash Essay competition. It’s quite a neat idea, and I hope it catches on—if you feel inclined to enter, please do so.
Also, here’s an exhibition I rather enjoyed. I would obviously be biased about it, but some of Haren Vakil’s art in this is quite stunning, and the pictures on the website don’t do it justice.
