    Sarita Handa 25 years & Beyond- A 2 day Exhibition of Historical Textiles and Contemporary art by Sarita Handa at Bikaner House A 2 day exhibition of historical textiles and contemporary art by Sarita Handa at Bikaner House, New Delhi from 28th – 29th October 2017 Working towards design innovation and inspired by Indian heritage and craft, Sarita Handa for the past 25 years has taken Indian aesthetics to a global platform representing traditional skills with contemporary accents. In more than 2 decades the company has been responsible in bringing back to life the old school art of Indian needlework translated into beautiful craft intensive collections with global inspirations. Established in 1992 the company commemorates the 25 years in design and to mark this celebration a 2 day exhibition of art and textile is being organised at the legendary Bikaner House, New Delhi from 28th- 29th October 2017. The exhibition will showcase the company’s collection of rare and vintage textiles handpicked over the years from across the globe and contemporary creative projects by 5 visionary artists Satish Gupta, Gunjan Arora and Rahul Jain, Arrti Mansinghka, Tanuj Ahuja and Jeevan Xavier interpreted in various mediums like video, weaving and canvas in their own individual style using signature Sarita Handa textiles. The collaborations for this event take the sustainability drive forward by cherishing and re-purposing fabrics from the company’s archives giving them a new life. Represented through the use of techniques such as patchwork, thread art et al, the artworks have upcycled and repurposed signature Sarita Handa scraps upholding our initiative for conscious creation.The artists themselves share a special relationship with Sarita Handa which has evolved over the years, making this occasion into a celebration of the creative conversations they have developed with the organisation. The event reflects an interest in providing a unique platform for artistic expression in textiles and the development of an on-going programme to support emerging talent in the field. It represents a new series of initiatives that celebrate collaborations between art and textiles to bring forth ‘the art of textiles’. Satish Gupta, a renowned Indian artist and sculptor, draws upon his constant engagement with the art of zen and mysticism to create dynamic installations which are inspired by Buddhism. The designer duo of Gunjan Arora and Rahul Jain will transform a method of using yarn in textile art unique to them with the use of mudras or hand-gestures associated with Indian spirituality. Mumbai-based artist Arrti Mansinghka will evoke facets of the holy river Ganga recreating its journey through sacred geographies using intricate textile patchwork and Bangalore-based designer Jeevan Xavier will shed light upon the essential skills of the hand which go into making every Sarita Handa product, through a film-based series of projections. Tanuj Ahuja brings forth his understanding and bond with the company and Mrs Handa in two surreal artworks - Continunace and The Cow - A Giver, touching upon the company's ideologies of nourishing and giving back to the society. A kaleidoscope of renewal, rebirth, reinvention and regeneration of design, textile and art, the event celebrates the past and toasts new beginnings. Spearheaded by the creative team at Sarita Handa, Delhi-based textile designer and curator Mayank Mansingh Kaul and designed by Amit Chhabra the event promises to be a visual and spiritual treat rooted in and inspired by the vast heritage of traditional Indian textiles. “For over two decades now, Sarita Handa has been at the vanguard of taking the best of Indian craftsmanship to the world. As a company with a focus on textiles, we remain rooted in and inspired by the vast heritage of traditional Indian textiles and this event draws from the company’s journey of exploring a universe of textiles and amalgamating it with art”, says Mrs ​Sarita ​Handa, Founder and Creative Head​ at Sarita Handa.

    Popular Place to Visit in Delhi From Khilji, With Love: Things to do at Hauz Khas Complex The moment people read Hauz Khas, they think of Hauz Khas Village, a commercial hub with some of the best bars in town, high-end eateries, designer boutiques. Quite simply, everything for the good life. What most people don't realise is that is was indeed, a real village in the past which was converted around the 1980s into a posh residential area, with the portion near the Hauz Khas tank becoming the commercial spot it has now come to be. The Hauz Khas Tank itself was built under the reign of Allaudin Khilji towards the end of the 13th century. Derived from Farsi, "Hauz" translates to "water tank", while "Khas" translates to "Royal", which more or less adds up to Royal Water Tank. It was mainly built to supply water to the people residing in and around Siri Fort. Firuz Shah, during his reign in the later half of the 14th century, added the structures on the southern and eastern banks of the tank. You know, the area where all the Romeo-Juliet and Ram-Leela combos flock for their dose of PDA. Sorry for the history lesson. Anyway, here a few things you can do when you're in the area. Food. We always start with this. High On Rolls is situated just before you reach the car park on the left and it's a great place to grab a bite if you're going budget or on the move. The Bhelpuri guy at the very entry of Hauz Khas Village will satisfy your Bhel cravings. Stuff your face with it as you enjoy the sights and sound of the Village or the park (the entrance to which should be 10 steps away). Moving on to more serious eaters who are here to dive deeper into their wallets. Raas is where you get Indo-Pak and Mughlai. Expect Asian cuisine at, the cleverly named, The Same Place. Smoke House Deli will have you eating European. Maquina is for Tex-Mex. New York Slice is for Pizza. Duh. Imperfecto goes all Mediterranean. It's Lebanese food at Farsi. The Toddy Shop takes you to Kerala. While Chaman Lal takes you to Turkey. And there are a few more but let's move on to desserts. Kulfiano serves Kulfi. No surprise here but their wide range of the flavours of it will surprise you. Cakes at Elf Cafe. Niice Cream gives you fancy ice cream. Fancy as in nitrogen-style ice cream. Made in front of your very eyes. Gelato Roma serves you genuine gelato, just like the ones the Minions scream for. And now we get down to where most Delhiites come to live it up, or just escape from the humdrum of city life. Matchbox is where you go for live Rock music. Garage Inc is best visited on Thursdays and Sundays for Karaoke. Social HKV always has something up their sleeve and their Long Island Ice Tea is the longest in the City. Ladies nights at Cafe OTB is always packed. My Bar is simply the super budget bar. If none of this tickles your fancy then you could give Kunzum Cafe a visit, where you pay what you want for your cup of coffee while you read a book or discuss travel with the backpackers who frequent the place. Or you could visit the numerous boutiques that house the area and see if it's new clothing your heart desires. Or simply take a walk in the massive park the dominates the Hauz Khas Complex and maybe say hello to a Deer or two. Down a few shots, or sip a cup of coffee, dance to some thumping beats or walk in the past near tombs, sing your heart out at a Karaoke or listen to the birds in the trees. Be it night or day, there is always something to keep you entertained at the most happening space in the Delhi NCR. Explore More: https://www.delhipedia.com
