Snapshots from Chitra Santhe 2014

Yesterday was the day of the annual Chitra Santhe at the Chitrakala Parishath. We went, though we aren’t keeping too well, and ended up thoroughly exhausted with all the walking, but sated with all those lovely pops of colour!

For those who missed the event, here are some glimpses.



Were you there? What were your impressions about the festival?

  1. Went, went! But of course! πŸ˜€ Loved these pictures, TGND – such a lovely slice of the event!

    Pricing was friendlier, think it was because I went mid-way. Actually got to go inside CKP this time, all other times we went in the morning and inside was jam packed!

    Bought some for my sister and one tiny one for us. Have to take pictures and post this weekend – she’s sitting out there with bated breath and cursing me big time!!

      Thank you so much, Sangitha! πŸ™‚

      I’m glad you were able to enjoy the event. Did you take any pictures there?

      Eagerly waiting to see the pictures of the paintings you bought. Yes, I thought the pricing was better this time around. That said, I somehow ended up buying nothing. 😦 Nothing felt exactly right.


      1. No pictures there – with two kids and bags, couldn’t manage camera as well. Was quite crowded. Am sure you’ll find the right painting sometime! πŸ˜€


  2. Wow!! Gorgeous pictures and I really loved it, especially the little Krishna’s smile, lady writing on a slate and daughter holding her and mother holding her baby. Beautifully captured!! Treat to eyes for people who couldn’t attend. Thanks a lot!


  3. Quick question-How does one get to know about this event beforehand?

    I happened to read it only in yesterday’s paper 😦
    I thought this happened on the last sunday in January,every year!

    Loved the quirky stroke of AAP on this canvas also πŸ˜‰


  4. I came to your page since morning multiple times to visit Chitra Santhe visually captured through your lens and Thank you so very much TGND, for people like me who couldnt attend the evnt, this is such a delight to browse the pictures and have our own imaginations run through! beautiful pictures. Thanks so much! So much rush is it? Details in each picture, for instance, the flower sellers not having flowers adorn their long hair inspite of them selling flowers, the black bead signifying the mangalsutra in the lady holding her daughter, little Krishna’s smile, so awesome. Thank you Dear πŸ™‚

      Wow, you observe so much! πŸ™‚ Even I missed out on these little details. πŸ™‚

      You are welcome. I am glad I could take you on this virtual journey. πŸ™‚

      Oh, yes, it was super duper crazily crowded. 😦
