– Chilly mornings and hot cups of tea
– A sheen of mist on the green grass
– Hot dosas for breakfast right off the steaming tava
– Cuddling up with a warm blanket with the cat 🙂
– Bangalore Habba!
This season seems to be packed with things to do and see. Have watched two plays already – Tumhari Amrita and Zen Katha. There’s also Rahul da Cunha’s Class of 84 (Dec 10) and Pune Highway (Dec 11) to look forward to.
Last year, I was in Bangalore for a visit during December when I caught a great fusion music session with Taufiq Qureshi and gang at the Bangalore Palace Grounds during the Vasant Habba celebrations!
Here’s some of what you can expect this year:
Dec 5: Hindustani classical evening
Dec 6: Laughing Wild (Play)
Dec 6: Nrityagram’s Odissi Ensemble
Dec 11: Strings (Pakistani pop group)
Dec 12: Shankar Mahadevan with Silk
This year, the celebrations are supposed to be bigger and better with over 1,000 artistes in the fields of music, dance and stage arts, entertainers, magicians, films, comedies etc. participating. And loads of other events like Kannada plays, fashion shows, magic acts etc. So if you’re in Bangalore, don’t complain there’s nothing to do!
