Birla Academy of Art and Culture

Went to an art exhibition at Birla Academy of Art and Culture. Loved it. As usual i got lost on the way and back so got to see a lot of interesting things. Was intrigued to find an outlet of Kottaykkal Aryavaidyasala. I don't believe in Ayurveda and think the whole thing is a hoax. 

Kottakkal Arya Vaidya Sala, Sarat Bose Road

In one of the detours i took found this interesting place. I am not sure what they sell. But these mannequins attracted me.

So did this little car at a garage there.

This looked like a temple. Not sure what it was, but i liked the Mithila style of painting that i saw outside. 

Earlier i had been to an art exhibition in CIMA Art Gallery. It was called Transition and marked the gallery's 20th anniversary. Photography was prohibited. I just bought a T shirt from there. It reads 'Once upon a time there was a plump tiger'.

'Ek chilo mota kendo bagh'
The CIMA exhibition had far less pieces than the one at Birla Academy. I totally loved this one. I am not a connoisseur of artwork. This one just inspired me a lot and i loved most of what i saw. Here are the various pieces there which i liked.
