Our exploration for new tea places continues. Being huge fans of Wagh Bakri tea lounges, we recently visited their outlet at GK. Tea is our “chicken soup for the soul” and hence we did not mind the extra drive to reach this place. Located in the GK M Block Market, this place needs a little bit of figuring out. But, once you are there, you are there
Sunder Nagar is a little off the way for us. But when we were told about this new resto-bar Number 8 in the rather sleepy Sunder Nagar, we thought it was worth a shot. Hence, to ring in the last weekend, we decided to visit this place and put up a review.
Aadyam is presenting 5 plays in a year to Delhi and Mumbai audience. We recently watched one of their productions – “Ladies Sangeet” at Kamani. Garbed in a light-hearted wedding scenario, the play tried to touch upon up quite a few tricky social issues. But could they pull it off? Please read on
Monsoon is finally here. Everybody has his own style of enjoying this short stretch of heavenly weather every year. Informal, a café at Janpath has introduced Monsoon Specials. Informal is an outlet by the guys who own Imperfecto. Given our great experience at Imperfecto, we decided to visit Informal and try their offerings of Monsoon.
We keep marveling at how the definition of art has broadened over time. Paintings, sculptures, photography have made way to new forms of artwork. Our visits to India Art Fair are now a complete new experience. Kiran Nadar Museum of Art recently organised a talk were the concept of “The Coup” was discussed. Not from politics but from art perspective.
Badal Sircar, the renowned playwright wrote in Bangla. However, his works transcend linguistic boundaries and have enormous human appeal. The Hindi play Ballabhpur ki Roopkatha is translated from Sarkar’s Bengali comedy Ballabhpurer Roopkatha and has been enacted by various theatre groups. Alongwith the comedy, the intelligent plot and the artistic visualization makes it a hit with audience anywhere. Ballabhpur ki Roopkatha was recently staged at India Habitat Centre. This was directed by Sunil Rawat and we recently went to see this presentation.
Whiskey is one of the most popular beverages in North India. There are various styles in which connoisseurs enjoy their whisky – with soda, without soda but punched with a soft drink or just neat. The WelcomHotel Sheraton in association with the celebrity bartender Shatbhi Basu organised an American Whiskey and Tapas evening. We were invited and had a unique experience.
