Magic and masti

The Kund area of City Centre turned into an oasis for kids looking to have some fun. Arabian Nights, a part of Super City Carnival presented by The Telegraph and City Centre Salt Lake, had on offer music, dance, games, food and more

Raghav Poddar, a Class VII student of The Assembly of God Church School, and sister Harshita Poddar, a Class VIII student of Mahadevi Birla World Academy, pose with the Arabian Nights characters. “We are all familiar with the stories of Arabian Nights and that made the event even more interesting. I can’t wait to go back to school and tell my friends that we clicked pictures here,” smiled Harshita

Jibak Mondal might have not won any game but he enjoyed taking part. The Class XII student danced to Lungi dance with the Genie. “It was great fun being on the stage and performing in front of so many people. I really enjoyed it,” said Jibak, whose favourite dance number is (you guessed it) Lungi Dance

Ankush Shaw had a ball playing games like Shoot the Thieve and Pin the Lamp. “I am having a lot of fun over here,” said the Class V student of The Frank Anthony Public School

Avik Routh came with mother Paulami to watch the magic show. “The magic with the dice was my favourite. I also want to take a picture with the Genie,” said the Upper KG student of Apeejay School, Salt Lake

Sutirtha Biswas, a Class VI student of Julien Day, Ganganagar, posed at the Photo-op Zone counter after his parents treated him to Chicken Shawarma

Mudit Agarwal and Shivank Agarwal, students of Birla High School for Boys, studied all morning so that they could spend the evening having fun at Arabian Nights. “We have got projects from school on Arabian Nights. We saw a magic show and then clicked a picture with Genie dressed as Abdullah,” chorused the boys
