THINGS TO DO FOR FREE THIS WEEKEND:

SLACKLINING | Slactivism sessions are held almost every Sunday in Delhi, where a group of people get together in an open space and attempt to walk a slack line.

When and where: Their location keeps changing, an announcement of which goes up on their Facebook page, which you can find here.

DELHI DRUM CIRCLE | Every second Saturday, a group of musicians and percussionists come together to jam, and enthrall audiences that happen to catch them. You can't miss them, since parks {wherever they are} come alive with the sound of music. They welcome any and everyone with an instrument, either to jam with them, or just simply to enjoy their sound. They usually start at five pm, begin with a few freestyle tunes, and go on to improv.

Where and when: The location keeps changing, stay tuned here.
