This week has been great for us..in addition to the Prabhadevi Fair that we went to a bunch of times, we also got to go to the Worli Fest on Worli Seaface. Since we were away for the weekend, we were only able to attend it on Friday evening but even just thaty much was loads of fun. We went together with a friend of the twins (from school) and the kids were super excited about something as simple as going out with a friend. We got to Worlie Seaface and first saw a stage with some musicians performing. It was a catchy hindi song and soon all four kids (baby amu included) were grooving away to the beat. Their friend grabbed Nish’s hands and led him to his first “dance” which he totally appreciated as was seen by his spontaneous hug a few minutes into the dancing. Sid had his arms out like a plane and was running around in dizzying circles, miraculously managing to avoid the people who were walking there.
Next we came to another stage with an acapella group performing and the kids were mesmerized by the sounds that the musicians could produce without having a single instrument!! Sid tried a few sounds and then settled down to listen and shake a leg!
We also had our first meeting with some clowns. And the boys were initially a little apprehensive when they looked at the painted faces and colored hair. Their Thing 1 and Thing 2 dressing up helped them relate to the hair a little better and in a little while they were shaking hands and enjoying the juggling and stilts and funny faces.
We ended the evening with some delicious corn on the cob enjoyed by the sea with lovely music and great company!
The only thing required was a bathroom facility …we had to head back sooner than planned because the kids needed a bathroom and there simply wasn’t one nearby 😦
