Speaking of the city's culture scene, the Times of India, Hyderabad's Festival drew big stars and impressive crowds. Vani Ganapathi's Bharatanatyam performance, Ghulam Ali's Ghazal evening and Ustad Amjad Ali Khan's Sarod recital, were events I couldn't attend, but Hyderabad made it to. I did manage to go to the plays, 'Dance Like a Man' (Mahesh Dattani's play, directed by Lillette Dubey) and 'The Vagina Monologues', which was directed by Mahbanoo Modi Kotwal and featured her and Dolly Thakore, Sonali and Jayati Bhatia. The culture scene's warming up as is the city, with rising temperatures.
