About Metropolis

“Metropolis” Genesis: Concept of the festival

The quality of being urban transcends beyond bricks and mortar. Urbanity is a test of human skills. It is a quest. It is a quench never satisfying. “METROPOLIS” is a portrayal of this meta-reality. The history of humanity is a story of ceaseless migrations. The phenomenon of migration from rural to urban areas has been continuing since the dawn of history. Since ages, people are migrating to cities in search of a better future. This is the story of all of us. This is the story of urbanity. "METROPOLIS" is the mother city where all cultures meet and flourish, where dreams are weaved and lived, this is the melting pot of opportunities of all kinds; this is where the change begins… "METROPOLIS" as a philosophy is a mindset to adapt, accept and grow, it is about being socially aware and informed and be responsible as an individual and become a collective environment for growth. The city has an ingrained quality of moulding people according to its needs. With the test of time, the continuous struggle for survival and the inevitable rat race associated with it transforms a ‘villager’ to a ‘city dweller’. The “METROPOLIS” teaches us to thrive on, to dream on and most importantly to live on.
