"But no matter, the road is life."
Hello there!

       Jack Kerouac - an American author who famously wrote his entire novel on a long scroll of paper - stood by the idea that one's "battered suitcases were piled on the sidewalk again; we had longer ways to go. But no matter, the road is life." He believed in the journey immensely, as does your team at NSPA. Some might say that living in the city is all about discovering oneself - but possibly more so about discovering strangers and fellow wayfarers along the way. We encountered a rickshawallah this week whose ancestors were zamindars in Benaras who once owned half of Colaba Causeway - and we marvel at the stories that people possess! Here are a few of our stories, and we'd love to hear yours, kyunki 'dil abhi bharaa nahin'!
"When Marimba rhythms start to play!"
The NSPA's new jazz and country singers Anusha Ramasubramoney and Rachel Philip marched into comic book library and cafe Leaping Windows (performances every Thursday, 8 - 10 pm) last week, armed with a guitar, ukelele, tambourine and flute - and swiftly disarmed an audience with old school rock, some jazz - and even an Irish a capella and a Spanish number! It was their debut performance as NSPA artists, and a cracking way to get started! Anusha and Ruchel @ Leaping Window

The Arts Around Town
A quick update from Mumbai's eventful Arts scene! Currently at TARQ (a contemporary art gallery based in Colaba) presides a show called "Reading Room", a showcase of artists' books and altered book art, on view till September 13th. The theatre company Junoon is organising - as part of its "Mumbai Local" program - a talk by Shubha Mudgal titled "In Search of my Voice : Exploring Identity within Tradition", on August 11 (Monday) at Kitab Khana in Fort. Entry is free to both the events mentioned above.
Our railway performances are currently on a hiatus, but our Gold's Gym and Leaping Windows performances continue every Thursday. Would you like our artists to perform at your neighbourhood garden, library, museum, school or cafe? Mail us at info@nspa.in with suggestions!

Have a lovely weekend!
