Our World Tuesday # 23 : Kala Ghoda Arts Festival #7 Jana Gana Mana : Touch Everyone's Heart

This photo is a part of the art installation 'Jana Gana Mana : Touch Everyone's Heart'. 
A Kathakali dancer from Kerala and a Kashmiri girl.

It was impossible to click the whole installation as the festival was very crowded. Most youth were not clicking pictures of art but posing themselves in front of it.

Here is how close I could get to show you the installation.

It shows the National Anthem 'Jana Gana Mana' written on the map of India. The person in the centre is Nobel laureate Rabindranath Tagore, who wrote the National Anthem. It shows the different people of India and represents 'Unity in Diversity'.

  1. I find that peculiar- what makes people feel obliged to photograph themselves in front of art?

    1. I agree. Peculiar but as common as selfies. Only a few professional photographers (maybe bloggers too) and some enthusiasts with a point and shoot camera like my Canon Ixus were interested in the art photos.
      I should have chosen morning hours for better pictures. Lesson learnt.

  2. Is indeed tough to get any picture without spectators!

  3. That's an interesting exhibit.
    Interesting photograph too -- of people kind of blending in with the exhibit. I don't think it really mars the picture as long as they are not right in front of one of those figures of the exhibit.
    Good one, Anu. How long is this festival?

    1. The festival was from 7th to 15th February and has ended now.

  4. Beautifully captured :) I loved the flag creativity which was the other side of this art installation :)
