India oh India!

We’ve decided to begin showcasing the rich tapestry that makes India what it is today! From festivals, celebrations, exhibitions to displays of our rich cultural diversity, all things creative and beautiful, visually stupefying and engaging, in short, all things Indian, will find a place on this page.

Photographs depicting the magnificent RANN OF KUTCH

The Rann of Kutch is located on the North-Westerly side of Gujarat. It is a salt desert that borders both India and Pakistan.

See the colourful photographs from across the Kutch region – Dhordo Village, Bhuj and Bhujodi – as we went trigger happy on a recent trip!

KERWANU VESH – A Dance Form Unique to the Rann of Kutch

Bharat Bhai, resident of the Kutch region in India’s western-most state of Gujarat, which is home to the splendorous and most whimsical of Nature’s bounties, the Rann or Salt Desert, is a performer who can only be truly appreciated when seen in person.

He deftly converts any piece of cloth into a stuffed toy-like object (a pigeon or peacock) which is devoid of any knots/stitch. Amazingly, he performs this feat while twirling round and round on the notes of traditional music!

Found no where else in the world, Kerwanu Vesh is an unmissable spectacle…

KALA GHODA 2013

We begin with the spectacular Kala Ghoda Arts Festival, (literal meaning – Black Horse Festival) an annual event conducted at Mumbai, that attempts to present a “kaleidoscope of music, dance, theatre, literature, street stalls, films, workshops for adults and children, visual arts and heritage walks.” (Source: http://www.kalaghodaassociation.com)

  1. Very thorough and informative blog. My only regret is that only my confreres are in India. I hope to make the trip someday. Thank you so much for reading about the Servants of Charity.
