Delhi is truly a hub of culture. And being a restless soul, I look for such events like art exhibitions or something to do with history, because all these lift me. I feel very rejuvenated after visiting such a place. Recently, an acquaintance asked me as to how to deal with loneliness or depression? I told her to connect with art, history, science, or nature. You don't have to be a real arty person to appreciate a painting or an idol, you just have to try to see what the creator might have felt creating this piece. Any form of art connects us with the artist, the creator.
I got an opportunity to visit Jay Utsav, Celebrating Living Traditions of Mahabharata, at IGNCA New Delhi a few months back. Actually, I missed the food court (Bheem Ki Rasoi), the Art and Craft bazaar, as I reached there one day late! But still the exhibition was on.
Have you ever seen a tree, decorated this way? I had never seen it! The sacred thread (Mouli) tied so symmetrically around the trunk and branches of a huge tree make it look so pious, isn't?!
And while, I was clicking the tree, I spotted the nest of weaver bird (I think so)
This is the place where the food court and craft bazaar was there. I loved this sculpture!
It was spring time, so lovely flowers welcomed us!
A little glimpse of the exhibition. An exhibition on the theme of Mahabharata. In the pic, you can see Bheema tearing Jarasandh into two parts, during the war. (Thanks Bookworm for correcting me)
The exhibition was a RIOT of colours!!!!
To be contd....
