The Kala Ghoda Arts Festival - The Cult.

I'm convinced that showcasing and providing opportunity to the simpler things in this world is what is going to pave the path for a peaceful future.
As I walk down Rampart Row and browse through the stalls at the Times of India sponsored Kala Ghoda Arts Festival, I realize how, what the world of business and the politics of time considers insignificant, is so important to people.

The festival is a world of creativity filled with the colors of life that witholds you as you stroll from one stall to the next.
Artisans, designers, artistes, painters, sculptors, potters, photographers, filmmakers, writers, actors, musicians and many more performing and non performing artistes of all kind, from every part of this nation come together to display their offerings of creation which are the moments of truth held between every two seconds that I spend there, and which the entire world, rich and poor, powerful as well as powerless, must experience for everyone to realize what the true purpose of their existence in this world really is.

If there was a market like the Kala Ghoda Arts Festival permanently placed in each and every part of this world, artistes will emerge with their creations and display them everywhere you look and the magic of the colors of life would hold still and make silent the dark of destruction which otherwise envelopes us all the while.

These festivals should be then brought to the front pages of every media for destructive forces of politics which otherwise occupy the space, to be silenced. I now know that our media will have to place the courage of creation above the cowardice of destruction for the world to veer towards peace.
The poor who get lured to join violent forces of demands for justice and equality need more outlets like this festival to free themselves from being trapped in ideologies which give them nothing in return for the cost of their own lives.

The narratives of literature, the music of song, the facinating expression of dance and the depths of art on canvas are all encompassing one fact, and that is 'LIBERTY', the one thing which the entire restless globe is craving. Liberty from the devious designs of the power hungry, popularity crazy, insane aggressors who get wrapped in their own devices as they go about doing everything other than what they should be doing, which is creating.

The control over expression by the politics of business to harness the wealth of creators, their own productive partners without whom they themselves would be redundant, has muted art and snatched their freedom from them.
Creativity, a result of simplicity and non violence, cannot fight the aggression of wealth, yet has the power to crush destruction.
The Kala Ghoda Arts Festival provides oxygen to creators, eliminating middle men who otherwise suffocate their expression.
More of these everywhere in the world are a must.
Until the world that creates and builds does not outnumber that which thrives on destruction, peace is not possible.
