This week we have Saleem Shah's stand-up comedy play ‘Bhelpoori'. The play is a heady mixture for the brain. It is sweet, sour and of course, spicy. A hilarious, laugh-a-second, satire on love, sex, politics, society, relationships and more. Shovana Narayan will be presenting a Kathak dance recital at Kamani this Saturday. And as part of Skanda Shashti celebrations at Uttara Swamimalai, a number of music programmes are being held at the temple premises.
