Kalaghoda Arts Festival

The Kala Ghoda Arts festival is one exposition of art and culture that makes it worth what it is to visit Mumbai and brave the crowds, the pollution, the sweat, the smell, the heat, the dirt, the open sewers and even the trains choking full of people. Quoting from the Kala Ghoda Association website:

2nd to 10th Feb 2013 will herald the vibrancy, drama, excitement and the beautiful colours of culture. Kala Ghoda Arts Festival invites you all to come and experience a kaleidoscope of music, dance, theatre, literature, street stalls, films, workshops for adults and children, visual arts and heritage walks. Nine joyful days to refresh your mind, inspire your senses and feel exhilarated!

I last visited the arts festival in 2011 and am planning to visit it again next weekend. Here are a few shots from my last visit there:
