IGNCA at Janpath is holding an exhibition on religious and theatrical practices that have evolved out of Ramayan. They have tried to capture glimpses of Ram Leela that have transcended space and time. Aptly named “Leela”, the display looked great from outside. Consequently, although we were there to attend the festival “Lok Gatha”, we gravitated to the exhibition hall.
ISKCON Food Relief Foundation at Palwal, Haryana, serves free mid-day meals to thousands of children in the local schools. The food is prepared in a factory like kitchen that ensures that the items are not touched by hand till it reaches the plates of the students. We were invited to have a look around at the mega kitchen and see the grand process for ourselves. We can’t quite believe what we saw but am trying our best to put it in writing.
