5 best ways to celebrate Father’s Day in Bangalore 2017

Remember those days when you used to go up to your dad, sit on his knee, and demand to hear a story, and he’d gladly oblige, with a warm smile on his face. Or how about when he taught you how to ride a bike? Dads are one of the most important people you’ll have in your life, and they’re always there for you, no matter what! Growing up, if you’re a guy, your dad was probably your hero, who you wanted to be like, and if you’re a girl, you know well enough that they don’t use the term ‘Daddy’s little princess’ for nothing!

So, with Father’s Day just around the corner, it’s time to do something for our dads to maybe, in a little way, give some of it back, and make the day the most special one he’s ever had! And we’re gonna help you with that. Get ready for some quality bonding time with your not-so-old man, as we’ve got five amazing events in Bangalore to celebrate all fathers in the world!

Vir Das Comedy Show

A little humour can light up someone’s day like Diwali, in a matter of seconds, and when the humour is provided by comedian Vir Das, you know you and your dad are gonna have a gala time! The event has a fun twist to it. Vir will narrate a few colorful stories from his life, but the catch is that they might or might not be true, and you have to guess. From stories about losing 4 million dollars in a drunk night in Vegas, to flying on an Air India plane while high on prescription painkillers, you can be sure it’s gonna be a laugh riot!

Fakiri- Bangalore Folk Music Festival

No matter how much of a clash over music tastes you’ve had with your dad growing up, you must’ve come to appreciate his vast knowledge of good music. One of the best memories of your childhood are of your dad humming or singing you to sleep when you were a kid, and those songs got stuck in your head forever! It’s time to share a soothing and invigorating evening with your dad, enjoying beautiful folk songs, from traditional Sufi to Kashmiri and Rajasthani folk music!

Open Mic Poetry

Our dads are our superheroes, and growing up, I know I used to imagine my dad being a secret agent, a wizard and whatnot, all the time! So what if we were a bit over imaginative, our dads have enough badass skills to knock you out! For instance, those poems and shayeris that he used to write were the most beautiful thing our mom ever read! So get him to fire up those skills again at an open mic night in Bandra, open to all the dads who are also Poets, Shayars and Kavis!

Timings: 6:30 pm – 8:30 pm
