I went there...not once, not even twice, but thrice. Each time with a different set of people but the experience of the exhibition remained almost the same; a sea of people flowing in a direction and carrying everyone along with it as a tide does. The scenario was the same on every visit; people hanging on the exhibition, trying to capture a perfect shot for their next "profile picture". The vibe was less "art festival" than it was of a "fair".

The only thing that made the festival worth it for me was the classical music concert about which I wrote some days back. Maybe the fault lay in the days I chose to visit the exhibition, still, the way most of the public treated the art installations was pathetic!  Nevertheless, I did take pictures of some art installations (and not of all, thanks to the crowds of people swarming around them like bees).















The bottom-line is, although Kala Ghoda Art Festival is worth going to atleast once, please try and chose a day on which you wouldn't encounter the college crowd (like a weekday), so that you are able to evade the maddening crowd and properly appreciate the art installations.
