Lest we forget.

A tribute to dancer and guru Chandralekha is to be held at Spaces in Besant Nagar, south Chennai, the space for the arts and activism that she and colleague late Dashrath Patel founded - the first plot on the Elliots Beach Road ( north end).

There is an exhibition of some of the drawings of Patel - founder of the National Institute of Design (NID), Ahmedabad from Sunday onwards. The show is on for a few days and has been curated by critic Sadanand Menon.

On Monday, 7.30 pm onwards the Barmer Boys, a group of Mangaiyar community folk musicians will perform into the night. It is open to all. The artistes will also hold a workshop that morning at Spaces from 11 a.m. It is also open to all.
