Roaming art camp moves pointlessly during Secunderabad 200, with no proper venue to sit and draw

Artist group scheduled to camp at six places in SecunderabadGroup first asked by authorities to shift to Parade Grounds, and then to Clock TowerJust when they are halfway through, rain forces a pack-up

HYDERABAD: Around 25 art students from various city colleges, who came under the banner of the Kalakriti Art Gallery for a roaming art camp, had a few rough lessons on the topics of patience and survival while trying to commemorate 200 years of Secunderabad on Saturday.

The group was scheduled to camp at six places in Secunderabad, starting from Clock Tower on Saturday till June 9. However, the initial leg of the camp started off quite chaotically. The group was first asked by "authorities" to shift to Parade Grounds.

However, on reaching there, they realised that the invitation had mentioned the venue as Clock Tower. A few of them immediately headed back to the tower.

However, just when they were halfway through, the rain gods decided to test them. The artists packed up for the day, but with a vow that they would not give up.
