Season's hub - Bhavans

If there is one place that is a buzzing hub of music and dance it is the Chennai kendra of Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan.

Look at this Wednesday's scene at the Bhavan's campus on East Mada Street - its two small halls on different floors are hosting music concerts, its classrooms are agog with music and culture classes, the main auditorium is hosting back to back dance recitals.

Kendra head K R Ramaswamy is actually not pulling his hair under pressure. But he has a quick job to do - to fix a programme for the Sunday morning since the scheduled event has to be pulled out. Ina  jiffy, contact is made and a Thamizh drama may well be on the cards.

"Bhavan's has programs 365 days of the year but there are times when work can get at you!", says Ramaswamy. He had to skip zipping down to Kilpauk, in the western side of the city where Bhavan's is now hosting a dance festival at a campus auditorium.
