I reached Kala Ghoda with my mother (second time visitor) and mom-in-law (first time visitor) and we were more than thrilled.
The installations near the iconic Kala Ghoda were so lifelike! You got to be there to see those lovely pieces of art. Elephants, giraffe, lion, deer, monkey... captivated kids and adults alike and we all couldn't help but pose with the animals.
Our lives have been so hectic all these years. When was the last time we went to a wildlife safari / zoo? When was the last time we saw these animals? Are there enough of them left now? Is the concrete jungle eating into the real jungle?Equally impressive were the installations near Jehangir Art Gallery. And then this time there were several stalls selling beautiful plants. How we thought of purchasing a few but had to resist the temptation since we had to travel back all the way to Navi Mumbai!
We headed to NGMA to watch Munshi Premchand ki kahaniyaan. Three artists performed an act on bonded labour and how! You much catch up with these plays when you hit Kala Ghoda.
Next we watched Bhatarnatyam and Kathak performances at the amphitheatre. Trust me, watching these dances on television is nothing close to watching them live.
After watching the play and the dances (and even the paintings at Jehangir Art Gallery) one thought still keeps lingering on my mind... why did I not learn all this? Well, I guess it's never too late. Might join painting classes soon.
