Things that you can still enjoy amidst the Corona virus outbreak

The whole world is affected by Corona virus which has led the Rajasthan Government took this decision to close down schools, colleges, coaching centers, gymnasium, movie theaters and theater halls till March 30. The step has been taken to reduce the spread of corona virus. Since there are not many places to go to you’ve been stuck at your home which means you have got more time to kill and get to spend more time with your family. So why not mix it up and make the best out of it?!

Do you remember when was the last time you played a board game with your family or spend your time actually doing something that you like? Well, we bet your answer would be “long time ago”. Now that you’ve got enough time to revisit our childhood days when there was no internet. We aren’t asking you to give up social media but devote less time on it and more time doing productive things that can do wonders to you. (Just kidding, but definitely can make you happy)

So, below are some of the things that you can still enjoy at home!

  • The first thing you can do is go for a walk, actually admire the nature and that way you will adopt a new habit.
  • What could be more adventurous than going hiking with your friends? But make sure to limit the group to 4-5 people only and take safety tools along with.
  • Been thinking of gardening but couldn’t? Now is a good time to take care of your plants and give them the love and care that they need.
  • Playing in your garden in the evening were the best memories from childhood. Relive those days and make fun memories again by playing with your family or friends.
  • They say cleaning your wardrobe is a good stress relieving activity, so go ahead and give your wardrobe a new makeover.
  • It’s time that you pick up that half read book and finish it or pick a new one. Reading a book is always a good idea if you wanna stay at home.
  • Another activity involves eating good food but first you need to turn into a chef. Why not try out a new recipe with your mom or dad and have a good time eating it.
  • Family game nights were definitely the best part of childhood with lots a laughter and a little cheating.
  • Everyone love late night drives and eating their favourite food, so why not turn it into a driving lesson.
  • As you grow up and get busy in our own lives, you lose connections with your school friends. So this is the time you catch up on them by doing a group video chat.
  • The web series has taken over the internet by storm and as the government has closed down all the movie theaters you can binge watch some classic shows.

So, in a crucial time where social distancing is the only option to avoid the spread of corona virus, the above listed things can come in handy plus you get to relive your good old days!

Along with the Monsoon Showers, Jaipur gets a new park- Sawan Bhado !

Ram Niwas Bagh was built by Maharaja Sawai Ram Singh in the 19th century. From that time, the exotic garden had been subjected to numerous new introductions, adding to its elegance and charm. The luscious green parks, majestic structures held the park together firmly. But with time, it started losing its charm when people began interfering with maintaining the cleanliness and harmony of the Bagh.

Under the smart city project, an old garden of Ram Niwas Bagh was renovated by the Jaipur Development Authority (JDA) which is named as Sawan Bhado Park. It was inaugurated by the Chief Minister on 25th June, 2016. Located near Albert Hall Museum, the garden has been creatively crafted, and has several attractions.

  1. A Noisy Good Morning 🙂
    The common mynas, one of the most frequently found birds in India, are no shy fellows ! They are seen hopping around, calling out and incessantly chirping and talking to other birds of the feather 😉  You can see for yourself how this one is a people’s person, oops ! birds’ bird 😀talk
    While some are suspicious about someone clicking their morning pics 😉 Just like this rose-ringed parakeet, aka parrot 🙂

  2. Basking in SunJust like all of us, they love basking in the warmth of early morning rays and smelling the grass to feel the dew drops 🙂

    Who says you have to shower first and then eat ? We are the master of our lives and we’ll eat the brightest thing around, and we bet you will crave to taste it as well 😉parrot eating
  5. Hand pump lessonsFor we are independent and don’t depend on humans to feed us 😉
    P.S. Common mynas are generally found in pairs. Because teamwork.

  6. Open air bathTo pull that off, you either gotta be as carefree as a villager taking baths in lakes and near wells, or by paying a King’s ransom to a fancy resort, or, you just ought to be a bird and enjoy the cool water under the shining sun in summers 🙂

Mornings at Central Park

One can’t actually think of anything that is more enjoyable & refreshing than a nice early morning walk when the city is just beginning to wake up. We all know morning walk is good for us and that we should go for it but somehow it is easier to lay in bed. It took longer to actually get out of bed and do it but once you do, you felt simply astounding and motivated to keep it up in order to maintain the feeling of being so optimistic and alive.

Central Park Jaipur

And to actually keep you enthused, an excellent place for walk is must. Being a Jaipurite, one knows well about an exceptional place to walk that is Central Park, which is the most popular park among walkers & Joggers, located almost in the centre of the city. As a walker I was impressed with Central park’s beauty and size, making it a wonderful place to enjoy a bit of relaxation where people can spend hours in the enthralling and imposing atmosphere. The beautiful 4.5 km walkway of the park fills one with rejuvenating freshness escaping the din & chaos of the surrounding city. A wonderful designed park, having intensely manicured grass land. Its vast stretch of seasonal plants with their enigmatic aroma makes any visitor spellbound.

After an interesting strenuous walk, all those walkers who are coming to the park treat themselves & rehydrate with fresh & healthy juices like those of wheat grass, aloe Vera, bitter guard, guard tomato juices, feeling replenished again.
So get your butt up, wash your face, dress up, wear comfy shoes come & explore all that nature has to offer early in the morning.
