Kala, not work!

May 15, 2008

Triveni Kala Sangam Cafe signI’m such a gavaar, I did not know that the Triveni Kala Sangam (~ arts center) in our capital city has a lovely garden cafe. I was quite pleased that someone in community radio suggested meeting here one spring afternoon. Ironically, we were seated right beside this sign and it totally tickled me. Apparently art and work are mutually exclusive. And maybe meetings, they think, kill – just like cigarettes do. It’s a distinct possibility, no? ;D

(In case it’s not clear enough to read, the sign says: “Right of entry reserved. SMOKING or MEETINGS Not Permitted”)

    speaking of quaint secret cafes in major metropolitan cities….check out prithvi cafe (attached to the theatre of the same name) and let me know if it’s a) still there and b) still quaint

    this might help…it’s in bombay and by theatre, i mean the kind with plays…

    why don’t u use mumbai instead of bombay?

    guess u won’t like calling chavee or ‘key’ (english translation of ur name).

    rgds…… rr

    rr, I left India when it was still Bombay so I have a hard time teaching my brain/tongue to go with Mumbai. In most posts, I go with both!

    Also, my name means “image” – see the two ‘h’s?
    Chaavi/chaavi would be key. Chhavi is a totally different word ­čśÇ
