A fun morning out with the kids

Enjoy a literary Saturday morning with your children as author Bijal Vachharajani and illustrator Rajiv Eipe read from their book, Kitten Trouble. The book takes young readers into the world of Sani, who is terrified of all animals. Her world turns upside down when her mother brings home an orange-white cat. The reading will be followed by art activity that will have children drawing out their fears and a kitten squashing them. Champaca Bookstore, Library and Cafe, Vasanth Nagar, Bengaluru, 17 September, 11.30am-12.30pm

An exuberant set of works

Visit Art Alive’s Games Of Life exhibit featuring Maya Burman’s recent work, filled with detailed patterns reminiscent of art nouveau traditions. “Maya Burman’s paintings evolve from a buoyant interplay of architecture and landscape. Gardens trail into interiors and brickwork arches frame forests, even as a parade of children animates the pictorial space with intimations of dance and music,” writes curator Ranjit Hoskote. The show is part of the Delhi-based gallery’s partnership with The Quorum Mumbai—a members-only club—as it attempts to expand its presence in Mumbai. The Quorum Mumbai, Lower Parel, Mumbai, till 31 October, 8-1 am


A classical evening

Attend a performance, Anubandh-Connectedness, by Bharatanatyam dancer Malavika Sarukkai. Presented by HCL Concerts, this solo presentation is the artist’s response to the loneliness and trepidation caused by the covid-19 pandemic. Sarukkai focuses on the rejuvenating powers of the five elements and life-breath (prana) that connects all beings on earth. Kamani Auditorium, Delhi, 17 September, 7pm
