Nakshatra: The Lunar Mansions by Kamini Ramanchandran
The stars have always been a guide - gently leading travellers, explorers and lost souls by the patterns in the sky, sharing their light. Indian festivals and special occasions are influenced by the stars. As we celebrate the harvest festival of Pongal, discover the origin story of the Nakshatras, the constellations. How did the stars come to be? And what is their story?
Step into an old shophouse along the streets of Little India and listen to master storyteller Kamini Ramachandran bring alive myths of yore. Be serenaded by accompanying music from Raghavendar Rajasekaran. Complete your stellar experience with traditional folk-art painting and create your favourite star.
