Mahindra Sanatkada Festival Year 2012
In 2012, Awadh ka Pehnawa was the theme of the Mahindra Sanatkada Lucknow Festival. An exhibition of clothes traditionally worn in Awadh like Ghararas, Sherwanis, Achkans, Topis etc were put up on display. From the Bazaar, Pranam's clothes with kantha embroidery, Breze's phool patti ka kaam and Asha Ram's wooden toys proved to be a raging success. As a part of the cultural evenings, a play called Aaaj Rang Hai was performed, Vidhya Shah paid tribute to 'Women in the Gramophone Era' while Teejan Bai performed the Mahabharat. The Food Festival's menu expanded manifold with Zehra's Pasanda Kebab, Supriya's Sarson ki Machli and Amin Naqi Khan's Shahi tukdas.
