Delhi is India's cultural hub, with performers from all over the country heading to the capital to cultivate their national audience. Painting, music, dance, theater, and, of course, film are all well represented. The large and modern India Habitat Centre has the best combination of all of the above; on any given evening, it hosts several good programs. The only problem is that publicity is nonexistent, so you must be persistent to find out what's happening— www.delhievents.com is a reliable source of information on cultural events. Failing that, the daily newspapers, especially the Times of India and the Hindustan Times, are also good sources. The staff at your hotel may be able to help, too.
