Some of us keep delving back into our childhood – our days of Billo, Archie, Chacha Chaudhury or Shikari Shambhu. Delhi Comic Con has brought this hidden desire back to us. It is a festival of comics – old and new – Indian and foreign. It’s a time travel to the past and a flight of fantasy to the future.
Jaipur Literature Festival has set a trend by creating glamorous events surrounding books. The Times Group has recently started organizing Literature Festivals in other parts of the country including the just concluded edition in Delhi. The two day event evoked a lot of interests among Delhites and others in NCR.
The temperatures have dropped suddenly. The early morning fogs are also back. It is winter. The biggest event in winter is Christmas. A host of events are happening to welcome Christmas in Delhi. For example – the Oz Haat Charity Mela this weekend.
DLF Cyberhub is unapologetically a food-drinks hub. It is an oasis on NH8. The variety of food and drink options never ceases to impress us. However, from our experience we have seen that most bars / pubs ignore the food section, as if this is an afterthought. But we never lose hope and we recently visited Soi 7 at Cyberhub. Here is our take on this place.
Art Tree has been active in propagating the cause of art in Delhi NCR. We have attended their art event Colorama earlier this year. They recently organized panel discussions on art and its role in contemporary times. Various concepts related to art were discussed during the sessions.
Crowne Plaza at Okhla has a multi cuisine restaurant Edesia. We recently visited this restaurant to try out their Awadh food festival. The wide buffet had a selection of Awadhi dishes. Additionally there were continental, salads, dessert and sushi counters.
The richness of traditional Indian handicrafts never ceases to amaze us. One such instance is Phulkari embroidery of Punjab. Women in the villages of this region are the practitioners of this craft. The happy designs of Phulkari are an expression of joie de vivre of life.
