Inauguration of the EXHIBITION of SPANDAN Festival of Performing Arts 2016 @ India Habitat Centre, Open Spaces - Atrium on April 28, 6:00pm

Blessed to have had eminent art Connoisseurs, artists, art and dance critics, changemakers, SPIC MACAY torch bearers and rasiks grace the evening to light the lamp, signifying the enlightenment within.

 It was indeed a pleasure to see the excitement among every participant to figure out which photo display they will unfurl and unravel to the world, as part of the inauguration. NO ONE apart from me, not even my better half INDIRA, knew about the photographs in each panel, nor the which panel on which installation.

 As the dignitaries started inaugurating each panel, the dance forms and their bouquet emerged. The glitter in the eyes one should have noticed. As resplendent captures of the “ICONIC Institutions, MOVEMENTS and GURUs” emerged, the beaming faces showed the happiness and pride of Indian Culture.
