Kala Ghoda Festival - A Must See

Sunday evening I got down town to catch the glimpse of Kala Ghoda festival. It is the most sought-after fair for the lovers of art and craft. It is something I always look forward to. The art work they put there is fascinating. You have no choice but to look and admire each and everything they display there. Kala Ghoda brings along with it oodles of talent and enthusiasm. It is a melting pot of art, culture, food and shopping! It’s irresistible! The festival runs for one week and has over 320 programs - all of which are free. The festival was inaugurated amidst great fanfare by the dapper Jackie Shroff and Mumbai Police Commissioner D Sivanandhan. I’d gone there with my family. My dad is a great art lover. He eagerly waits for this festival. Apart from the fact that it doesn’t cost anything the most attractive thing about the festival is its diversity. There is something of interest for everyone. It is a platform where artists from fields of art, craft, music, dance, theatre present a vibrant culture show. The Mumbai police ensured to make the festival safe for the citizens so that they can enjoy the festival without any cares. We should be grateful to the organizers for organizing this festival and giving a chance to the young talents to portray their skills. And they are always appreciated. The Kala Ghoda festival is an exciting and interactive public space that ordinary citizens from all walks of life can access. It is refreshing. One can enjoy the performances or just laze around scanning the stalls with a beverage or snack. Encircling dance, drama, music, workshops and much more, the Kala Ghoda Festival of India adds glitter, glamour and enthusiasm to Mumbai.
