HERE A HABBA,
THERE A HABBA,
EVERYWHERE A HABBA ABHA
DEC 2nd – DEC 11th, 2005
This year’s Bangalore Habba, seems to be happening all over the city!!??
Auditoriums, Halls, Theatres, Playgrounds, Parks, Temples, Shopping Malls, Walkways, Golf Course, Palace Grounds…..
Airport….oops! sorry, the Jakkur airstrip!
Aren’t the radio stations and television channels also ON for the occasion?
Grand celebrations this year too, WISH organizing committee of cultural programs (Department of Kannada & Culture and Tourism Department) is aware that there are many deserving artists here in Bangalore, other than the same troupes performing year after year.
Kerala Kalamandalam which is celebrating its platinum jubilee year, finds itself caught in conflicts between tradition and modernity and a tussle between artistes and administrators.
Watch out for danseuse / actress Lakshmi Gopalaswamy’s new Kannada movie “Vishnu Sene” with actor Vishnuvardhan.
