Kala Ghoda, Boho Chic


Even though I have been to the Kala Ghoda festival in Mumbai before, it was only this year that I got a chance to enjoy it in its full glory. Right from attending the inauguration function to connecting with people in workshops to enjoying yummylicious street food to going crazy with clicking pictures - it was all a fun ride!

This was my daily morning routine:
1. Reading the schedule in the newspaper
2. Deciding which events to attend
3. Dressing up accordingly
4. Not forgetting to pick up my trusty camera :) 

The Kala Ghoda festival is almost heaven for amateur photographers with ample options available for capturing. Be it the beautiful art installations or the peculiar subjects for street photography, it was very easy to spend an entire day just clicking pictures. With the exhaustive number of pictures I have clicked, sorted, and edited, I have decided to make this a two-part post.:) 
Even though the art installations were majestic, the main attraction for me this year was the workshops (more on that in the part two).

I want to talk about a deadly and uncontrollable disease that is quickly spreading in India - (a little drama:P) the #Selfie craze! Ok…alright…before you start pointing your finger at me, I accept that I am guilty as well. ☹ (In my defense, I did not click a single selfie in the entire festival.☺) I was annoyed by pouty boys and girls at every art installation with no respect to the installation itself! And then there were some who could do anything for a picture or selfie including ruining the art installation by stamping or sitting on it. My point is that you don’t need a selfie at every installation. Isn’t one enough? 

Segue to fashion talk, the Bohemian trend ruled the festival. Jumpsuits, hats, tassels, oversized sunglasses, backpacks, and gladiators were on song. To keep up with these happenings, I chose the Boho chic look by wearing my favorite printed dress from Zara. We had an opportunity to click pictures near the Asiatic Library as well. Hope you guys like the look and pictures of the art installations.:)
