The country has seen a spurt of online events due to lockdown. Karvaan India lists five of the most interesting ones.
1. Kommune presents Midnight Lockdown
A very special edition of Midnight Lockdown on July 20 featuring stories by Roshan Abbas, Tess Joseph and Sheena Khalid, poetry by Rabia Kapoor, and music by Osho Jain. Be a part of songs that will tug at your heartstrings, poems that will make you smile softly to yourself, and stories that will transport you to different places, and different times.
2. Digital Walk: Adalaj Vav – A Blend of Indian and Islamic Architecture
Due to the arid conditions, western India is home to some stunning stepwells, especially the states of Gujarat and Rajasthan, which were built with the intention to store rainwater for a longer period of time. Of all these stepwells, the one at Adalaj is of unique importance. The stepwell’s intricate carvings are not the only things spectacular about it, the tale behind its creation is equally spectacular! Built in 1499, the vav incorporates design elements from Hindu as well as Islamic architecture and is the only vav with three different entrances that leads to the main well.
