Gopi Talav – Surat
Art – the language that doesn’t need vocal words and still manages to fabricate into us feelings that make us speechless. In any form available, art is its own person encompassing everything around us and making it beautiful.
And to give a sliver of such fascination of art, Surat has been graced with Gopi Kala Utsav 2016 organized by the Surat Municipal Corporation to give Surtis a colourful and artful New Year in their very city. After a successful last year, this beautiful cultural fest is back with a bang – bigger, grander and better for good. This week long fest is a presentation to commemorate different arts, music, folklores and dances of the country.
City Tadka visited this coveted fest yesterday just to try to capture and present for you some essence of the evening. Words couldn’t express how magical the evening went by. We entered into the gates and were struck by the surreal string of lights.in all various colours decorated on the bridge. A grand stage with was set for performances of the night, wonderfully decorated and all lit up. These festivities have various programs planned for every evening like Sugam Sangeet, Classical dances, Orchestra performances, Daayro and a lot more.
The night consisted of more than 25 captivating performances with traditional dances from different corners of the country – people from all age groups dressed in stunning traditional attires performed one by one giving everyone a brief view of their respective states. The best thing about the night was the audience, who were as enthusiastic as the performers and created an energetic vibe throughout the evening.
Winter nights where one gets cosy on the outside and evenings filled with cultural glee and gusto to get us cosy on the inside – Gopi Kala Utsav is surely a place to be to spend your year-end evenings with a classical twist.
The Utsav started on 25th December and will continue till 31st December.
