Till date I had never been to the annual celebration of Mumbai's culture and arts - The Kala Ghoda Arts Festival. To the uninitiated, it is a melting hotpot of the finest art installations, sculptures which resonate with every Mumbaikar and most importantly are a visual treat.
This year, the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival (KGAF) was being held from February 6 - 14, 2016. And this year, I made it a point to not only attend the KGAF but also the Food and Crafts Festival. One of the venues of the KGAF- the cross maidan near Churchgate Railway station - was host to its sister event in line with the Make In India initiative - Food and Craft Festival.
So here are the snippets and of my sightseeing at Hindustan Times Kala Ghoda Arts Festival at the Cross Maidan:
This was right at the entrance to the maidan.
|If you think this installation resembles a T-Rex skeleton, well that makes two of us. |
In fact it is a representation of the Charkha as donated by TATA Steel.
|Some visitors we so eager to pose with the installations, |
that they didn't realise it was still being worked on.

The other part of Cross Maidan had food stalls all over for the Food and Craft Festival - Make In India.

THE FOOD STALLS:Unfortunately for me, the stalls were still being set up when I was looking around.
