We’ve never missed Kalaa Utsavam, an annual festival in November showcasing Indian art and culture, organised by the Esplanade. The festival presents a variety of genres, including the most authentic classical art forms of India. It’s a boon for those bringing up their children outside India as they are able to expose them to Indian culture. The quality of the programmes is really commendable. We’re Singapore permanent residents and have been living here for the past 10 years. We attend Kalaa Utsavam as a family. Our kids are six- and nine-years-old and they loved last year’s shows including Garuda, a dance drama performance for children. We also attended Anjaneyam (Bharatanatyam dance drama), Manganiyar and Kalbeliya music (folk songs and dance) and Agam (music concert). Such events help to keep us rejuvenated!
