Heritage Week celebration

Sarkhej at night, such a beautiful sight I didn't expect to see.
Lit up by lights galore, some electric and others with a rosy glow,
Music to soothe the spirit or lift you up in the moment,
and the chilly night, sprinkled with twinkling stars,
'twas a night to remember.

World heritage week being celebrated in Ahemdabad as well led to us managing a trip to Sarkhej to attend a concert with Sikh musicians, Baul singers and Rajasthani songs.
A cold night with pigeons providing background score to the music, with good company, and a sketchbook, was a wonderful experience! A future concert has been announced for next month 18th and 19th, and I'm all ready for it already!

A few photos, and sketches to be scanned will follow..

The lamps all over the place, floating candles in a chai glass, kept on rose petals!

Flood lights illuminating the structure, and the pigeons!
