About the Event

Kala Ghoda in association with Khaki Heritage Foundation presents #LostAndFound - Fort’s Missing Statues, A talk by Vinayak Talwar. All proceeds from this event will be donated towards the Mumbai Dabbawallas Association made possible by Khaana Chahiye.


Once upon a time, Mumbai's Fort district was peppered with colonial statues of British royalty, nobility and Governors and Governor Generals. And not just before independence, but even 15 years after. Until a nationalist movement in the 1960s saw many of them getting vandalized and disfigured in an attempt to erase India’s colonial past. Some statues were hidden away and some even went missing, their place being taken over by statues of Indian leaders. But the clues of a past not too long back still linger around. At our Online Talk '#LostAndFound - Fort's Missing Statues', Vinayak Talwar of Khaki Heritage Foundation takes us around the Fort area to show us the locations of these statues and tells us who they memorialized, what befell them and other stories around these relics of the Raj.

About the speaker:
Vinayak Talwar is a Dilliwalla who gets a kick out of showing Mumbaikars their own city. Living and working in Mumbai since the last 6 years, the city has enchanted him into exploring its nooks and crannies whenever he gets the chance. When he is not tramping down the streets of Fort and other Mumbai localities, Vinayak works as an HR professional with an Indian conglomerate.
