On 27th evening, went to a performance by Russian national artist Liudmila Nikolaeva and her Ensemble at Ambedkar Bhavan. Again an event sponsored by ICCR . The artist was so energetic and enthusiastic! She even came down singing from stage and involved audience in dance!! and It was a magical evening. The dances, the singing, and the foot-tapping were mystical! It was a nice evening I had with Seema, Vani, Shobha, and Neha, Raghav and family. Thanks to Seema for arranging all the passes! :)

The performance was superb and enthusiasm of the group undescribable. Lydia even improvised a few lines from Blue Moon! Thanks to passes arrangements by Seema, it was a memorable evening. Had lotsa fun with Seema, Kriti, and Vani. Not to mention the icecream session post-jazz!!

Last night went to Samarkand, an Afghani restaurant. Pretty neat ambience. The main menu is in the form of a news paper!! And the liquor menu on a bottle!! Replete with artifical mashaals, sky and stars, the place rocks. Quiet an ethnic touch. Waiters are dressed as Afghans. Also, you can see the chefs making rotis, nans etc through a glass wall. Food is good. The price bracket is that of Tandoor's.
