What to Do: Visit the Indian Summer Bazaar

MT
Organizers of the Indian Summer Bazaar are promising a microcosm of the subcontinent -- complete with grazing cows, if negotiations with the government are successful.

Even if they are not, guests can content themselves with a sampling of Moscow's Indian dining scene: Tandoor, Maharajah, Devi Cafe and Darbar are all to be selling food at the June 2 event.

As well as the usual suspects -- stalls offering pashmina scarves, beadwork, henna tattoos -- there'll be Indian fairground games. Ever tried Pin the Tail on the Elephant?

Guests can enter to win a return trip to Goa (pictured) in the raffle. A diamond ring might also be up for grabs. For runners-up, there's a selection of electrical appliances.

There's to be a yoga demonstration to watch, and children from the Moscow Indian school are booked to do a dance routine.

"India is today known for its color, its mirth and happiness. So there'll be a small portion of that," said Ramesh Chandra, press liaison at the Indian Embassy.

Indian Summer Bazaar, 11 a.m.-5 p.m. on Sat. June 2 at the Embassy of India, 6-8 Vorontsovo Pole, M. Chkalovskaya/Kurskaya. Adults 100 rubles, children 50 rubles. Free entry for children under 5.
