AN EIGHT-LANE bowling alley right in the desert dunes? That'swhat Megabowl near the airport presented last weekend. The Rajasthani theme nights had folk music and dances by Langa brothers from Jaisalmer, a mehendiwala to decorate the palms of guests (does it improve one's bowling skills?) and a chooriwala, complete with an array of colourful bangles. To top it all, the bowling alley's Mega Cafe served authentic Rajasthani food: delicacies like Dall Baati Churma, Raj Kachori Chaat, Sangri ka Achar, and Mangodi Pulao. The next time Megabowl hosts such an event, we suggest that they also insist the customers come in ethnic dress. Mirror-work skirts and tops and huge turbans should be some change..
