A small blog post to express a big thank you to all our collaborators, supporters and attendees, who have made the past year such a special one for the Lab.

From talks on diversity, architecture, education, philanthropy and more, to beautiful poetry book launches…from a range of film screenings on topics such as electricity, gender and medicine, to performances by folk musicians from Rajasthan, theatre professionals from Mumbai and a dhrupad singer from  USA….we covered a lot of ground in 2014. This past year, we greatly enjoyed collaborating with many partners including Films Division of India, the National Film Development Corporation of India, the National Gallery of Modern Art, Lakmé Fashion Week, Alliance Française de Bombay, Lok Kala Sagar Sansthan, Japan Foundation, USIEF, Stanford University and Bungalow 8, on our ongoing exploration of what it means to be modern and Indian. We especially loved collaborating within Godrej with all our lovely friends across the different companies and teams. A big hug to each and every one of you, and all our love. We are kickstarting 2014 - with three blockbuster events in January - and our website is now mobile enabled - so do check it out on your cellphones whenever you get a chance (if you're not reading this on your phone already!). A very happy new year to everyone. Hope to see you very often at our Lab in 2015!
