A traditional Indian market or fair is always, first and foremost, a social event where people from near and far can get together.
10:30 AM – 11:30 AM
Billed as an Indian Experience and inspired by Indian fairs and markets, MELA will offer viewers an opportunity to get to know leading figures and innovators in business, the creative and performing arts, fashion, entertainment and many other sectors. In short, these are the kind of people who are making a mark on popular culture, setting trends that others follow or are presenting new ways of seeing and thinking about our contemporary world. MELA celebrates Indian lifestyle in a South African context. It is fresh and relevant. It is grounded and rooted in the South African experience.
A fair without food would be unthinkable – and celebrity chef, author and foodie extraordinaire Yudhika Sujanani will be MELA’s resident culinary expert. While healthy eating forms one part of the wellness formula, exercise is another and here renowned dancer, choreographer and yoga expert Yarisha Singh will add her unique contribution to the MELA mix, with accessible hatha yoga demonstrations.
Viewers can look forward to these very engaging personalities fronting the show, each adding his or her individual magic to the mix.
To meet the faces of MELA watch it every Sunday at 10:30 on SABC 2 – You belong.
