Neighborhood Art Festival

I am a little late on posting about the Neighborhood Art Festival...it was from 7th to 10th March. And it was WOW!!! Being the first time for me to attend such wonderful art festivals, that too, not in any art galleries, but on the streets! Organised by Kitsch Mandi, these people had done a wonderful job...

Sharing with you all, some amazing photos from the art festival that took place in various neighborhoods of  Bangalore.






Live caricatures, display of beautiful artworks and some wonderful soul-touching music made the weekend, a fun-filled one! Hope you too had a great weekend too!Check out for more photos here

Wish you love and happiness!

Shubh Labh

Shubh Labh (Shubh means goodness and Labh means benefit), the most common symbol used at the entrance of houses in India, stands for good luck,wealth and fame.

My share of 'goodness' and 'benefit'.

The 'Swastik' also stands for auspiciousness and comes from the words 'Su' meaning good and 'Asati' meaning to exist.

Shubh Labh is written in the Devanagari script and are believed to be names of the sons of Lord Ganesha. The two lines on either side of the 'swastik' are said to be 'Riddhi' and 'Siddhi', two wives of the Lord.
