a chariot full of culture

Standard

recently, the newspaper tom-tommed the artweek in Chennai– with exhibitions, photos and the like splattered in many prominent spaces. but the curators of the one-off expo shouldn’t be worried;

artweek is always on.

and today, we were surprised by a rathload of art, and culture unfold at the elliots today.

    • hey! not all that long! they had to hang around till I took a dekko – but it wasn’t fast enough for them. and rofl@ your resigned expression on mamas with mikes:-) if I show my sons your sympathy , then they’ll backspace me out of every event!
