A Cultural Twist, This Summer
It is not every day that one gets to be a part of soul soothing events. It is not every day that one gets to witness art and culture, first hand, either. The summer is finally coming to its full glory, and it’s about time to commence your summer vacations.
While the travel agencies and agents have kept your phone ringing off the hook with amazing foreign destinations to visit, we suggest you otherwise. This summer, meet the real India. Acquaint yourself with the rich culture and take pride in the Heritage that you belong to. And to do so, you don’t have to travel to every state. Delhi brings you a plethora of events that will leave awestruck, in every sense possible. All it takes is that one Bengaluru to Delhi flight to enrich your vacation.
So, before you hop on that plane, let’s take a look at what Delhi has in store for you.
The folk, the lore and all the galore:
India is a nation that conceives various cultures, traditions, folklore and art in its heart. Delhi, the capital of the country, seems to leave no stone unturned as it gears up to host an array of folklore by the end of the month. It also plays a stage the classical dance form Odissi. Presented by the very Eminent Smt. Aruna Mohanty, it surely something all the patrons of dance should not miss out on. Opportunities to watch such scintillating performance are rare. And it’s even rare to witness the likes of Smt. Aruna Mohanty performs live.
And if you happen to miss out on this, don’t fret, Delhi offers a stage to various Kathak and Bharatanatyam performances in the month of May 2017, as well.
In the Spirit of Art:
We bet you have had a “Chikankari” piece of clothing and you never wanted to let go of it. A Lucknow tradition, Chikankari features intricately woven design, skilfully sewn on clothes. It, not just an embroidery, it spells a legendary finesse with a creative bend towards dressmaking and sewing.
Now a book is written its honour, bringing forth the unknown public collections this unique craft tradition. If there’s one reason to travel to Delhi, this precisely would be it.
Back to the Roots:
India is an amalgamation of several cultures and languages. And not only does the country guard this beauty, but it also celebrates this uniqueness. One such unique feature of the nation is that it has been a home to the doyens of Urdu language. For all literature lovers, this is one event you want to travel seas for. Presented in the form of poetry, drama, music and storytelling, this event promises you a literature packed evening.
