Mr Ananth said I can’t answer you anything now but you will surely, enjoy and it will be a great experience for sure. We asked to keep our belongings, mobile, watch all in a locker as there is a pin drop darkness inside… I’m pure vegetarian so got a flower shaped token and my friends got diamond shape token as they are non-vegetarian… We were given a stick and the much awaited time has come to enter the dialogue in the dark…..

We were four girls as we entered we got introduced to Janaki who guided us from the beginning till we came out… We entered everything is totally dark we touched the walks using the sticks move forward. First, we experienced birds chirping sound, waterfalls sound and we crossed the waterfall through shaky broken bridge. It was really a thrilling experience… We played many games like feeling the alphabet finding a word, played cricket one by one Janaki found the ball correctly she was guiding us perfectly I asked her can she see us. She said you will come to know and the main attraction was jewellery exhibition touching, feeling and find wat type of jewellery and details about it .  And when I attended the jewellery exhibition in the dark, not only did I learn to feel, I also learned to differentiate and most importantly I learned to appreciate. It took near about one hour to complete our darkness tour…Then, atlast we had amazing food served by Velu… A tiffin box served to veg people… It was delicious. When they came ys to drop out we realise that they were blind.. Tears filled my eyes but It was really a great experience and I ask everyone should visit at least once here to know the value of darkness.. It’s really an Amazing experience…. truly beautiful……

I see so many things but when I close my eyes I can’t feel most of them. I don’t stop by and appreciate the beauty, the simplicity and the intricate details of the beauty of everyday things. Since we weren’t allowed to take any pictures, I have to write a thousand words and well, I do have a thousand words of how I felt….. .

I’m damn sure it will be a really tough challenge for them. At the time of inception, most of their visitors understood Dialogue in the Dark as a charitable organisation, some understood it as a darkness entertainment centre, some understood it as blindness simulation, etc. This has been by and far the most challenging aspect of their business.

Excited? Go and visit Dialogue in the dark……

Lunch costs Rs 350+ taxes. The restaurant is located in top floor of Express Avenue Mall
