IIHS organised a Heritage Walk for #IndiaUrbanFellows in collaboration with INTACH Bangalore Chapter.
Anushree, anchored the walk from IIHS. Meera and Pankaj took us along the Bangalore Fort and old city which has changed over the course of time.
The week was exhausting but overwhelming. I had found the peace within for the fact the work ethics at IIHS are on the same lines I’ve been wanting to be build or associated with. So came the weekend.
Bengaluru Poetry Festival was scheduled on August 6-7th, 2016 and I was looking forward to the weekend. One Vikramjeet Singh Rooprai, Founder – Youth for Heritage Foundation was coming to Bangalore and it had been time since we met last time and got lost in our conversation which ranges from history to philosophy to politics to everything we can put our heads on. Second, it was the first weekend in Bangalore after Urban Fellowship has commenced.
I slept like a hog on Saturday the 6th of August and planned day out on Sunday. Daksh, my junior from CSPA is interning in Bangalore and I had been wanting to see him too. So the first half of day was spent at Poetry festival at Leela Palace Hotel, Bangalore listening to Piyush Mishra – singing and reciting poetry; chatting with Vikramjeet Singh Rooprai and second half of the day was spent at NGMA, Bangalore – where I’ve been wanting to go since last year. I’ve been to NGMA New Delhi & Mumbai and was fascinated how the art work is curated at both of these galleries.
I ended up video documenting Piyush Mishra’s singing and poetry recitals – which I’ll share over the course of time. I’ve shared one video on Facebook already which can be viewed here:
