A beautiful 'clay' world where dreams come to play

It was a visit planned by my college and I suppose anything with friends makes the place even more exciting. The art gallery is a one time watch having people's efforts reflected in the price tags. The huge sculptures made of clay and mud were found to be dusty. The Kuchipudi dance performance was truly admirable. And of course you... More

This one place is dreamy. Truly dreamy. You enter it and walk slowly into the arms of clay and forget what you intended out of this visit. Just the beauty of sculpture art, human finesse, precision, and silence takes over your mind and body. You will see painters painting, sculptures sculpting, and many others enjoying an art form at their... More

The Crafts Museum located in Pragati Maidan competes with the Matka Peer which offers excellent biryani. But once inside, you are transported to a different world of folk arts and crafts, of traditional handicrafts and artisans, and colours and splendours of our villages. The practice of bringing in the master craftsmen began a few years ago and it provides the... More

The crafts museum is actually under renovation and only the textile gallery is open right now (free of charge). The gallery looks quite old and dusty, and needs to be renovated as well but I guess they need to keep something open. I loved the tribal paintings on the walls of the hall and courtyard, and the few tribal artifacts... More
