People and Place

Standard

 

As many of you might already know, our space has gone through quite a transformation over the past year 1/2 leading up to its current incarnation. Following is a listing of the people who have walked through our doors along with the transformations in the physical space that have concurrently occurred.

Designed by Aman Verma and myself this original logo really took our whimsicality for a run. Unfortuantely, it was determined to be too whimsical, so we opted for the more sober logo that we have now. If you look closely, you will see an image of our inhouse rastababy plastered on the globe. We always thought of him as a fitting mascot for the space so we felt it quite apt, yes, to plaster his cute little baby face on a globe. The caption reads,”rooting for earth, reaching for the skies.” because yes, that is exactly what we do! Apparently, according to aman, the combination of colors are encoded with a special cipher wherein you stare at the image long enough you will transcend space time and emerge into the 5th dimension. Talk about being outside the box :p..I always viewed this space as some sort of magical initiation so I welcome the gesture 😉 ..Anyway, in the end, we decided to keep it as a standalone image and make millions off of it. all rights reserved so dont you dare!

More rastababy. Just cant get enough of him. Just the type of spirit and energy we would love to see at this space.

weve always attraced quite a few wackos to our space. Meet anil, our helper who lasted with us for over 2 months circa 2014. He really does have the entire galaxy enshrined in his chest.

the kid energy has been quite prominent. Here they are sanctifying the ground floor with some meditative energies. Lo and behold, 2 years later, we are currently running regular meditations here. so zen!

Last but not least, hats off to krysh gopal (goal krishna? gopal krishna ab? Reyansh Gopal? whatever the hell he goes by these days :P) for designing and coordinating the construction of the epic amphitheatre and charming ground floor. Please  pay close attention to his initiative @https://www.facebook.com/hyderabadtrails. Already a big success, its moving into its 2nd evolution and has scope for other interesting themes and variations to emerge.

Hyderabad Trails conducts an early morning Sufiyana Trail, an ancient tradition wherein troubadours and musicians take to the street and form a moving congregation, praising and immersing themselves in the numinous during the early hours of the morning. Here’s our present day Sufiyana, reimagined with smart phones and other accessories to boot.
