A Village in the City!

Saturated with elements of urbanisation and a colour palette of minimalist looks on sleek plain modernist lines, is this luxury all we want? Do we realise how precious these days are the old and the vintage? The importance of emotions and stories attached to them is irreplaceable. The world seems to run back to reconnect to the old and the story-telling idea of living with culture.

Sorry, that might have been too long of an intro! Probably some personal love attached! ;)

So, just a weekday afternoon, I happen to find a village in the city. Located on the top floor of Centrals at JP Nagar, a theme based restaurant on the lines of bringing back the traditional culture and cuisine. An initiation by Kambala Hospitality group who deal into catering and banquet services quote it as:
Village, the soul of India is the first unique theme restaurant which revives the long forgotten traditions and culinary secrets of the Indian culture and heritage. Village, the soul of India pampers your visit with a no time limit policy, variety of regional entertainment & attractions; a gigantic spread of six different cuisines from all over India and you can shop for some memorabilia too.”
With branches in many cities, they realize that it’s not food which they want to serve people with, but an experience of interaction & traditional dining. There are stages for puppet shows, kachi-ghodi dance(from kutch), dandiya, astrologers etc.  
Log on here to know more. And I learnt that there is one branch in Indore too (my hometown) :D
The moment I saw the place, click was that it has to come on my blog! ;p

Thanks Mr. Ramkumar Singh for sharing the information and permissions.
