Chennai - what is up?

The TOI theatre Fest just concluded and the Hindu Metro Plus Theatre fest is around the corner. Wonder if I will be able to go this time to even one play.

There is a Banana festival at Island grounds- Navy thinks I must be bananas to want to go visit- but they claim they have banana fibre collectible- so i need to go .

A Thailand fest is on at Chennai trade centre for the next couple of days- but it sounds rather like a regular exhibition with some South East Asian stuff added on. Rather far as a venue, with Navy alos disinterested, I need to see if I can make it.


Dakshin Chitra has a kiddies Aadi fest on till August end


There is Story telling at Vanilla Place and Sing Along musical for kids


Andhra Dastakar Mela promises to have good cottons


If all that is not enough, Haji Ali juice centre in Chennai - Greams road- awaits me, since I finished a trip to Kailash Parbat last weekend.


And here is a glass bead necklace strung by Anushka very painstakingly. She was very thrilled with her work and my only contributions were company and the final knot.

and hey we went for the bangalore sing along last year - i think the same set of folks do it. 'twas excellent in parts and okay-ish in others. worth going to, as far as 4 yr olds go.

Hip Grandma said...

don't tell me Anush made that perfectly symmetrical alignment.Are you sure you don't push her too far into perfection?good job anush.At your age I could draw a straight line with or without a scale. Iam getting a complex girl. get your grandma to 'Sutthi podufy'.

Hip Grandma said...

I meant 'at your age I couldn't draw a straight line ........'

Sands said...

Hip Grandma said...

Read Muthu's mango mania.Please don't let him caught.I've started praying for him already.BTW I'm reading it after a long time.May be I'll link it for g'daughter Megha to read.My husband feels Anush looks adorable with nosering et.al.Says that he has to see her in person when we next visit Chennai

VJ said...

this post makes me miss chennai so much !!

artnavy said...

thanks all from anush

u r so right starry

hhgmom- anush cannot draw a straight line either, nor can she read/ write the alphabet-

it is just the way her school is- more into discipline, motor skills, coordination etc right now- plus i think she is like my mother in terms of inclination to the arts...

tell MrHHgdad that we are eager for your next visit- last i met u was 2 yrs ago....

Timepass said...

Artnavy said...
