Four-day Art, Culture and Music Festival – The Opus Fest – to commence from Jan 17 in Nagpur

Come January, Nagpur will witness Central India’s biggest art, culture and music festival – The Opus Fest – which will be organized by Hype Media Solutions in collaboration with Nagpur Municipal Corporation and CONCOR with Nation Next as the online media partner. The Opus Fest, which is four-day festival, will be held from January 17 to January 20, 2019, at Telangkhedi Garden, Nagpur.

The Opus Fest will bring more than 150 artists involved in performing and creative arts under one roof. Speaking to Nation Next, Zibran Khan, Owner, Hype Media Solutions, said, “The basic idea behind The Opus Fest is to create a support system for artists so that they can collaborate with each other and also build an audience for themselves. We will be bringing artists together to collaborate with each other and will be curating their performances. To put it in a simple way, there’s a possibility you may see a beatboxing jam with a rapper or a poet with a musician. Any and every sort of creative collaborations will happen at The Opus Fest.”

Even artists associated with creative arts will get a chance to display their work at the fest through live painting, pottery, art installations and more. There are going to be different workshops and flea stalls displaying the skills and works of the artists which will give Nagpur an easy access to the art culture of the city.

Well, if you thought The Opus Fest is all about artists, you are wrong! For four days, from 6 am to 10 am, fitness enthusiasts will be able to enjoy different kind of activities at the fest. In the morning, the fest will have workshops on yoga, Zumba, CrossFit, meditation and other fitness related activities. Interactive sessions on physical and mental health will also be conducted.

After the morning session, there will be break from 10 am to 1 pm, post which activities will be resumed. From 1 pm to 7 pm, there will be open air performances by artists, Nukkad Natak and several workshops for cooking, baking, painting, hand lettering, sculpting, introduction to filmmaking, photography, etc. The fest will also be featuring more than 100 different flea stalls from handcraftsmen from the city.

From 7 pm to 11 pm, popular artists from the mainstream entertainment industry will be performing over the course of four days. The concerts of these artists will be opened by musicians from Nagpur.

All in all, The Opus Fest promises to be a roller coaster ride for anyone who wants to have fun with friends, spend quality time with loved ones or learn some artistic skills themselves!

A 12-year-old boy named Agranya Barapatre in Nagpur breathed his last after trying to imitate a video on YouTube at his neighbour’s place. The woman, in the video, is seen demonstrating how she escaped with her hands tied behind, gagged and face covered with scarves. He was found hanging from a wooden ladder’s stick on the neighbour’s terrace but there was no knot on the scarf. 

Upon inspection, it was learnt that Agranya had downloaded a video titled ‘Full face cover challenge’ in his phone. Cops said that there was no reason for the teenager to commit suicide but the possibility of an accident could not be ruled out.

Arangya’s mother said the couple had no clue where the scarf came from; he only carried a chakri and a kite. She also revealed that her son usually played on their neighbour’s terrace

Reportedly, Agranya was undergoing a psychiatric treatment as he was a hyperactive kid who wasn’t attentive in studies. He was good with using phones and application so his family tried to keep the phone away from him. However, he would somehow always locate the phone. 

Agranya, the only child to his parents, was supposed to be felicitated at his school on Thursday during Republic Day for securing second position at a double-lathi event at the third National Traditional Lathi Sports Championship in Indore.

Post the incident, he was rushed to Government Medical College but was declared dead. Sakkardara Police registered a case of accident death.

AR Rahman

SS Rajamouli’s ‘RRR’ has been making news for the past few weeks. Be it winning Golden Globe for the song ‘Naatu Naatu’ or being nominated for Oscars 2023, composer MM Keeravani is a national name now. The Oscar-Golden Globe-Grammy awards winner, AR Rahman said, spoke about MM Keeravani in a recent interview.

Expressing that Keeravani is ‘underrated’, he said, “You know what? MM Keeravani is a great composer, it’s just that he’s underrated. And I’m not sure if it’s true, Keeravani wanted to quit music in 2015 and retire. In fact, that’s when his career had actually started. And everyone noticed it. I believe when someone thinks their life is over, that’s when your life starts. You just need to live. I even tell my kids the same, ‘that gentleman (Keeravani), who’s been in the industry for 35 years, wanted to quit so early when his career actually started at that point.” 

This video of Rahman’s interview about Keeravani has been appreciated on social media. And many users have also praised him for his positive and inspirational statements. Moreover, Keeravani will be conferred with Padma Shri this year, who once thought of quitting and wanted to retire in 2015.
