Last year I had attended the theatre at NGMA and watched the play "The Mad Horse' This was the best show that I had ever watched in years! It was a bouquet of five recitals, and five different Shakespearean plays performed by talented stage artists like Alyque Padamsee, Shazehn Padamsee, Gaurav Chopra, Aparna Tilak, Madhuri Bathia, Cyndy Khozol and Gary Richardson. I had enjoyed it a lot.

I hope to attend this year too... But I will go only if I find a friend who is willing to come with me to South Mumbai, which is an hour away from my house....I hate going alone anywhere......

Wow,so interesting -but I can only attend after my kid grows up ! Another good update on the festival is available @http://blog.soulcare.in/kalaghoda-fest-2011-whats-your-story

The name "Bombay" was derived from 'Bom Bahia' (The Good Bay),

.... a name given by Portuguese sailor Francis Almeida, in 1508 ....“Bounce back Mumbai” .....as it is called by the locals, it is a city that has been through a lot in the recent past – floods, bomb blasts, riots – and come out stronger each time.

Whats the Time Please?
