About a year ago, I heard about this restaurant hidden in the 4th Block of Koramangala. This place is run by a group of specially-abled people and had been long on my bucket list until October 2018. The entire café is designed in a way where people are able to interact with the specially-abled staff in the most innovative way possible.

Factory visits are always fun. Visiting the Dodabetta Tea Factory reminded me of my college days. These factories not only teaches us the process but also about the labour and technology behind the products that we consume on our day-to-day life.

Mysuru or better known as Mysore is a city with an extravagant history and royal heritage. As soon as someone mentions Mysore, the first thing that comes to our mind is the majestic Palace of Mysore.

Durga Puja is just two days away and the excitement is through the roof. Chittaranjan Park also called the mini Bengal of Delhi is one of the best places to be during Durga Puja.

The land of the royals is a brilliant amalgamation of the old and the modern times. The modern Jaipur offers beautiful sky rise towers and cafes.
