Anjaneri in Nashik - the birthplace of Lord Hanuman

Anjaneri in Nashik - the birthplace of Lord Hanuman

Nashik city has its own importance in religious matters. It has Trimbakeshwar one of the 12 Jyotirlingas. It has Panchvati the place that witnessed the incidents in Ramayana when Lord Ram stayed during his exile period here along with Sita and Laxman. Also, Nashik city is known for the Anjaneri, the birthplace of Lord Hanuman.

Anjaneri birthplace of hanuman

Anjaneri is one of the well-known places and favorite treks in Nashik and it is visited heavily during the monsoon season for trekking. Anjaneri is named after the mother of Lord Hanuman "Anjani".

Trekkers of all ages, from children to old, come here for trekking and climb up to the top and visit the temple of Hanuman Ji at the top.

Anjaneri location

Anjaneri hill is situated 30 km from Nashik Road. It is on the way to Trimbakeshwar temple and falls 5 km before the temple.

Hanuman Temple in Anjaneri 

Since it is believed to be the birthplace of Lord Hanuman, a temple dedicated to him was made exactly on the turn i.e. Anjaneri Phata that goes towards Anjaneri village and hill. It is also visible from the main road going towards Trimbakeshwar temple.

Hanuman temple in Anjaneri is very small and simple that comprises a big statue of Hanuman Ji. Also on the top of Anjaneri hill, the destination of trekkers, there is a very small temple of Hanuman Ji. Not in very good condition but people visit here for darshan once they reached the top.

Trekking at Anjaneri

You take a turn from Anjaneri Phata towards the village and drive your vehicle to the base of Anjaneri hill. Parking is available. There you will find several small shops and vendors selling eatable items.

The trekking route is overall good. Steps are made in between to ease the trekking and also there are flatlands after reaching a height. There you will also find seating arrangements. It is awesome all the way and you will always feel like clicking pictures to capture the beauty of the surrounding.

anjaneri trekking

While climbing, sometimes it was difficult to move forward in many places so I was wondering how these small children and oldies are moving without fear and with great courage.

Stairs and rocks slip a lot in the rain, which requires a lot of attention in trekking.

You will find a few shops/vendors selling tea and snacks in between.

anjaneri trekking top view

Once you reach the top of Anjaneri, you feel like heaven. It is spectacular and offers an amazing view. It is a lot of fun when you reach the top.

You will continue to face frosty winds and rain, so I suggest you to come with full preparation.

Review of Shubham Water Park in Nashik 2022 - ticket, timing, attractions, food

Shubham Water Park in Nashik - Review, ticket, attractions, and food

Shubham water park by Jadhav paradise is the only water park in Nashik city. It is small but enough to enjoy the water rides with your kids in summer. Every year we go to the Wet n Joy water park in Shirdi but this year 2022 we couldn't make it so we landed up in the nearest one i.e. Shubham Water park in Nashik. If you are interested to know an overall review along with ticket price, costumes, food, snacks, water rides, and other activities then keep on reading further.

Also, read Wet n Joy Water Park in Shirdi Review.

shubham water park nashik

Shubham Water park Nashik location

It is located about 30 km from Nashik Road and it falls a little before the Hanuman temple in Anjaneri. This location is easily accessible and you can reach here using any vehicle.

Shubham water park Nashik timing

Shubham water park is open from 10 am to 5 pm. The opening time is 10am but they open it after 10:30 am. All rides start after 11 am only. Till that time you can finish all your ticket and costume processes and get ready for the rides.

Shubham water park Nashik ticket price

Water park ticket price with lunch - Rs. 750 for adults and Rs. 700 for children between heights 3.6 - 4.6 feet.

Water park ticket price without lunch - Rs. 600 for adults and Rs. 550 for children between heights 3.6 - 4.6 feet.

Entry is free for children under 3.6 feet.

You will get unlimited popcorn, candy floss, and ice gola at both ticket prices. Lunch offered is unlimited thali.

Shubham water park costume and locker price

Ladies costume price - Rs. 70 (It includes top and full-length bottom.)

Men's costume price - Rs. 50 (It includes only shorts and NO t-shirt.)

Children's costume price - Rs. 30

Locker price - Rs. 30

Water park costumes were not in proper condition so I suggest selecting water park costumes properly before taking them. Check well costume conditions whether any dress is torn or not. I saw 10-11 dresses, then I got the proper costume. Most pants were torn.

Water rides and attractions in Shubham water park Nashik

There are 6 big water rides, a wave pool, a rain dance area along with family water fun system.

You will enjoy family water fun system slides with your little children. The water level here is such that even a small child of age 2.5-3 years can comfortably stand in the pool.

shubham water park rides

The wave pool is active 2 times, once around 2 pm and another one at 4 pm.

I loved Turbo Lab the most among the big water slides. The Fast Track water slide does not go smoothly due to joints in between and it is not that enjoyable. Everything else is fine and fun too.

shubham water park rides

Other attractions in Shubham water park

Aquarium - Entry is free.

Iguana - You can take selfies with Iguana.

Bird watching

It gets converted into a Flower park in other seasons when the water park is not operational.

Have a look at this video for more details about this water park.

The crowd at Shubham water park Nashik

Shubham water park is small but it is okay to enjoy with your family. Since there are limited water rides, during the whole day, you can take all rides multiple times. During weekdays the crowd is less but there is a lot of crowd on Sunday or any holiday.

When it is crowded, you won't find water tubes easily required for big water rides because they are already occupied by someone else and they do not leave it. Tubes are limited in number so getting them for big rides is a big problem when the water park is overcrowded.


Unlimited veg thali provided in lunch that includes rice, dal, poori, 2 vegetables, 1 sweet item (we got suji halwa), and papad. Food taste is not that great but okay. 

shubham water park lunch menu


The staff is very casual and not very attentive. Some of them take care in proper way and some of them don't.

Water quality

Water quality is not good and you can clearly see it but you can't do anything. You have to go with it.

Changing room and shower

The shower and changing room are different. After enjoying the water park thoroughly, first, wash under the shower in a commonplace (of course different for gents and ladies in their own space) and then go to the changing room to change the dress.

The shower and changing room were clean enough but it gets dirtier with the continuous flow of the crowd.

Most of the crowd gathers here after 4:30 pm so I suggest finishing your shower and changing work before that time to avoid a rush and then you have a clean changing room.

Address and contact details of Shubham Water park in Nashik


Jadhav Paradise, Anjeneri Hills, Nashik-Trimbakeshwar Road, Nashik.


Contact number:




Overall visiting Shubham water park in Nashik was a good experience but it needs to be better in terms of water quality, professional behavior of staff, costume quality, and food.

Some of the water slides do not slide only in the Family water fun system where a full family can enjoy it all together. This needs to be taken care of. This water park needs maintenance works to provide better service to the visitors.

For Nashikkars, it is the only water park in Nashik so it is well visited in the summer season but if you need to visit the bigger water park with several big water rides and that too, is not very far from Nashik then you should visit Wet n Joy water park in Shirdi.

Nilini Ayurvedic Hair Color (by Shesha Ayurveda) Review

Review of Nilini Ayurvedic Hair Color by Shesha Ayurveda

I have been trying several natural and ayurvedic methods for my hair care and hair color. I tried various DIY videos for hair masks, hair care, and hair color. Finding the safe natural way to color my grey hair was the most important for me. Following Preity Prerna's videos, a year ago I stopped doing hair coloring and started using natural and ayurvedic methods to color my hair.

I was using 2 step Henna Indigo method to color my grey hair. Instead of Indigo I also use Greynil black shade sometimes after the henna application. But at the same time, I was also looking for an alternative to the 2 step Henna Indigo method. Then I saw Nilini's review on a YouTube channel which was quite satisfactory. I ordered and got it for myself. Here is my honest review of Nilini Ayurvedic Hair Color by Shesha Ayurveda.

nilini ayurvedic hair color review

About Nilini ayurvedic hair color

Nilini ayurvedic hair color (that contains ingredients Neer Brahmi, Indigo, Aloe Vera, Amla, Coconut shell powder, Henna, Curry leaves, and Hibiscus leaves) claims to provide natural black color to the white or grey hair. It is a product of Shesha Ayurveda and it is 100% natural. 


I liked the packaging of Nilini ayurvedic hair color very much. It comes in a pouch that contains Nilini hair color kit along with Lord Dhanvantari's image. Nilini packet includes 2 sachets of 20 gms. So the net weight of the Nilini hair color is 40 gms in this pack. Shesha Ayurveda suggests using the product right after opening the sachet as it is not useful after 3 hours.

nilini ayurvedic hair color review

Nilini ayurvedic hair color Price

It costs Rs. 290 for 40 gm pack. Additional shipping charge Rs. 70 will be added if your shopping amount is less than Rs. 1500.


The availability of this product is a major concern. Most of the time I see it is out of stock and not available. Now I am for its availability, once it is in stock I will order extra.

How to apply Nilini ayurvedic hair color?

Shesha Ayurveda suggests and recommends doing a mandatory 48-hour patch test before application. To justify this patch test, they have given detailed information on their website and also in the leaflet along with Nilini hair color kit. I did not do any patch test and applied it directly.

Remove the powder from both the sachets into the bowl and mix them with the water to make a smooth consistency just like we make henna paste.

Apply it all over your scalp and hair strands. Leave it for 1 hour and then wash your hair simply with water. Do not use shampoo for the next 2 days.

Do not forget to apply hair oil after drying your hair.

Use hand gloves compulsorily while applying otherwise you may get black stains on your hands.

How was my experience with Nilini ayurvedic hair color?

I saw all my white hair was turned to black perfectly. In the natural light, you will see the brown color but when I looked into the mirror they all seem black. Inside the house, my hair looks black in color but when I step out in the natural light, my white hair looked brown. I was totally satisfied with Nilini ayurvedic hair color. Finally, I found an alternative for 2 step henna indigo process that met my expectations. I got rid of so long 2-step hair color process and it needed only 1 hour to wait after application.

nilini ayurvedic hair color review

I am so happy that I found Nilini and I will definitely use it again and again to cover my white hair. It is the best alternative for 2 step henna indigo process till now because I am still searching for more wonderful natural ayurvedic hair colors.

How long does Nilini last?

The black color developed after the application of Nilini lasted for 3 weeks. After 3 weeks it starts fading it turns like a henna color. You need to apply it again after 3 weeks because by then white hair grows from the roots which are seen. In my case, I managed for 1 month comfortably but still, white hairs grown from roots were seen. I wanted to order again but it was not in stock so I applied henna indigo hair color after 4 weeks.

Overall I am satisfied with Nilini ayurvedic hair color by Shesha Ayurveda and I will also recommend it to others who are looking for a natural hair color to cover white hair.

Do you know any other natural or ayurvedic hair color that you find satisfactory? If yes then please let us know through the comment section.

There are a total of 10 blue flag beaches in India and Golden Beach in Puri (Odisha) is one of them. Recently while my trip to the Jagannath temple in Puri, I visited here and I am quite impressed with this beach. Here I will share my honest review or experience, the various details of the facilities offered there, and also find the entry fee charged.

Have a look at this video.

All about Puri Blue Flag Golden Beach and my review/experience

  • This is fascinating to be here. The totally neat and clean, limited crowd, sitting benches, a sit-out umbrella with recliner, the wind, the sound of waves, the combination of all of these is wonderful. This is called Golden Beach because of the golden sand here.
  • This is very clean and you won't find the litter anywhere. Cleanliness is maintained all the time and you feel amazing.
  • This is under surveillance with CCTV cameras. Also, the lifeguard/watchtower was installed there at two locations.
  • I enjoyed bathing at Blue Flag Golden Beach with my family and it was a great experience.
  • There are separate showers and changing rooms for gents and ladies where you can take a shower and change your clothes after bathing in seawater.
  • Greenery is maintained with several plants around and also there is a kids' play area along with fitness equipment. If you don't want to enter the sand area then you can spend your time here otherwise you can take a walk along the jogging track.
  • This place is perfect for clicking pictures and shooting. You get so many amazing views for pictures.
  • There are no shops at Blue Flag Golden Beach. If you are looking for some snacks, or seafood items or you want to explore the beach market then you can cross the barricade and enter the common Golden Beach. There you will find yourself in a huge crowd. Several food stalls, camel rides, vendors selling toys, etc are found there.

Also, read "Shirdi travel guide - accommodation, food, Sai darshan, local tour".

Overall this is an amazing place to visit and if you are here in Puri for Jagannath temple darshan then you must not avoid visiting this beach.

Learnings from Shrimad Bhagavad Gita - Important Life Lessons

What is Shrimad Bhagavad Gita

Shrimad Bhagavad Gita is a song sung by Lord Krishna himself and it is one of the best texts. It contains the essence of all the Vedas. Gita irrigates good values ​​for the entire human race. Geeta is a treasure house of wisdom. 

The truth of the world is contained in the Shrimad Bhagavad Gita. There is a solution to every human problem in the Gita. The essence of 700 verses contained in 18 chapters shows the truth of life and tells how to live life meaningfully. The knowledge of the Gita will help in fighting every difficulty.

Today human beings are facing a lot of difficulties in life so here are a few must-be-known points from Bhagavad Gita which can help the people understand the philosophy of life and resolve the issue themselves. Whether you are a working man/woman, student, businessman/woman, employer, or employee, Shrimad Bhagavad Gita might be a perfect guide for the one looking for knowledge and self-power.

Bhagavad Gita life lessons

Learnings from Shrimad Bhagavad Gita

Bhagavad Gita tells us the perfect and meaningful way to live life. It shows you the truth of life, teaches you the good and bad karmas, and makes you mentally strong.

It is not that only old people should read it, but people of all ages should read Gita so that they know the right way to live life and they can give the right direction to their life according to Bhagavad Gita knowledge.

I would suggest everybody must distribute the knowledge of Shrimad Bhagavad Gita to their children at an early age so that they move ahead with more confidence and they stand stronger in their life.

Let's understand a few but very important learning points from Shrimad Bhagavad Gita one by one. These are life lessons for all.

Also, read and understand the Gayatri mantra meaning, significance, and benefits.

🌸Chapter 6 Shlok verse -5

उद्धरेदात्मनात्मानं नात्मानमवसादयेत्।

आत्मैव ह्यात्मनो बन्धुरात्मैव रिपुरात्मनः।।6.5।।


We can help ourselves. We should train our minds in such a way that with its help we can come out of the quagmire of ignorance. And lift yourself even higher. The mind is the friend of man and also the enemy. Conquer these wandering senses and make the mind your friend. If this mind continues to be influenced by different types of means, then it will become the cause of our downfall and if it is not influenced by all these and remains focused on our goal, then it can save us.

This tells us to be focused.

🌸Chapter 6 Shlok verse -6

बन्धुरात्माऽऽत्मनस्तस्य येनात्मैवात्मना जितः।

अनात्मनस्तु शत्रुत्वे वर्तेतात्मैव शत्रुवत्।।6.6।।


As mentioned above in 6.5 that the mind is our friend as well as the enemy, it is understood here. One who has conquered the mind, that is, controlled the mind, for him the mind is a friend because, with a controlled and directed mind, we can achieve our goal. If our mind is uncontrolled and unguided, then it will keep us bound with worldly attachment and may become the cause of our downfall.

This tells us if we are focused we will surely succeed.

🌸Chapter 4 Shlok verse -17

कर्मणो ह्यपि बोद्धव्यं बोद्धव्यं च विकर्मणः।

अकर्मणश्च बोद्धव्यं गहना कर्मणो गतिः।।4.17।।


One needs to understand the nature of Karma. This is very difficult but it is important to understand Karma (beneficial karma), Vikarma (baneful karma), and Akarma (no karma).

Here you understand Karma so that you are capable to choose and act as beneficial Karma. 

Karma (beneficial karma) is the only way to progress in life.

🌸Chapter 8 Shlok verse -7

तस्मात्सर्वेषु कालेषु मामनुस्मर युध्य च।



Here Krishna says that while performing your own duties in the world keep me in your thoughts or think of me. By surrendering your works to him and fixing your mind and intellect in him, you will surely attain him.

Surrender yourself completely to God while performing your duties in the physical world and you are with him.

🌸Chapter 3 Shlok verse -35

श्रेयान्स्वधर्मो विगुणः परधर्मात्स्वनुष्ठितात्।

स्वधर्मे निधनं श्रेयः परधर्मो भयावहः।।3.35।।


It is better to perform one's duties (Dharma) in a faulty manner than to perform the actions of others well. This means it is better to die doing one's own deeds (Dharma) than to engage in someone else's path or Dharma.

In this verse, it has been said that, follow your Dharma/your duties and do your Karma. If you leave your Karma-Dharma after seeing someone else, you will not get anything. For example, if sages get a boon from God by doing penance, then this is their Dharma, their Karma. A farmer practices his dharma by plowing the field, while a doctor performs his dharma by treating patients. Similarly, the Dharma or duties of a student is to go to school and study. If he does penance like a sage, how will he study and if not, how will he follow his Dharma?

Don't think about what someone else did and didn't do, you just focus on your Karma and Dharma. Pay attention to what you have to do and what are your responsibilities and how will you fulfill them? Even if it is not up to our expectations, we cannot give up our responsibilities, we cannot run away from our Karma. It means that you keep doing your work and if you have done good deeds, then you will definitely get good results from it.

Here you understand the importance of your own duties and their priorities.

🌸Chapter 2 Shlok verse -47

कर्मण्येवाधिकारस्ते मा फलेषु कदाचन।

मा कर्मफलहेतुर्भूर्मा ते सङ्गोऽस्त्वकर्मणि।।2.47।।


Do your Karma/work without being attached to the result (or fruit). You should never consider yourself to be the cause of the fruits of your actions, nor should you ever be attached to non-actions. 

So here you are advised to simply act as per your duties or responsibilities without expecting anything in return because you are not entitled to the fruits of karma. It means that you keep doing your work and if you have done good deeds in your own time, then you will definitely get good results from it. Whatever has been done with a sincere heart, God will definitely fulfill it.

So do your work without expecting anything in return, God will surely deliver the fruits as per your actions.

🌸Chapter 2 Shlok verse -48

योगस्थः कुरु कर्माणि सङ्गं त्यक्त्वा धनञ्जय।

सिद्ध्यसिद्ध्योः समो भूत्वा समत्वं योग उच्यते।।2.48।।


In above verse 2.47, we have seen that we should do our Karma/work without being attached to the result (or fruit), then how should we act? Here is the answer in verse 2.48.

Here Krishna advises Arjuna to come out of attachment and perform his duty with 'Yog'. Yog means concentrating the god (the supreme power) with senses in control. By following Yog, become one with the supreme almighty and perform your duties.

When you act with 'Yog' then success and failure, they do not bother you because your senses are in control.

🌸Chapter 16 Shlok verse -1,2,3,4,5

अभयं सत्त्वसंशुद्धिः ज्ञानयोगव्यवस्थितिः।

दानं दमश्च यज्ञश्च स्वाध्यायस्तप आर्जवम्।।16.1।।

अहिंसा सत्यमक्रोधस्त्यागः शान्तिरपैशुनम्।

दया भूतेष्वलोलुप्त्वं मार्दवं ह्रीरचापलम्।।16.2।।

तेजः क्षमा धृतिः शौचमद्रोहो नातिमानिता।

भवन्ति सम्पदं दैवीमभिजातस्य भारत।।16.3।।

दम्भो दर्पोऽभिमानश्च क्रोधः पारुष्यमेव च।

अज्ञानं चाभिजातस्य पार्थ सम्पदमासुरीम्।।16.4।।

दैवी सम्पद्विमोक्षाय निबन्धायासुरी मता।

मा शुचः सम्पदं दैवीमभिजातोऽसि पाण्डव।।16.5।।


Here in verses 16.1, 16.2, 16.3, divine qualities are described that make a man godlike naturally. They are -

fearlessness, purity of heart, steadfastness in knowledge and devotion, benevolence, control of senses, worship, the study of scriptures, austerity, uprightness, non-violence, truthfulness, freedom from anger, renunciation, tranquillity, aversion to slander, compassion to living beings, freedom from sensuality, gentleness, modesty, steadfastness, vigor, patience, fortitude, harmlessness, freedom from vanity.

In verse16.4, it is said that Pride, arrogance, ego, anger, harshness, and ignorance, these are all demonic qualities.

Verse16.5 says divine qualities lead you to liberation and demonic qualities lead you to bondage.

Here you find out the divine and demonic qualities so inspect yourself and look at the way you are in.

Divine qualities take you to progress while demon qualities take you to downfall.

🌸Chapter 5 Shlok verse -21

बाह्यस्पर्शेष्वसक्तात्मा विन्दत्यात्मनि यत्सुखम्।

स ब्रह्मयोगयुक्तात्मा सुखमक्षयमश्नुते।।5.21।।


The one who is free from the external world's experiences that arise from our five senses is one who is actually happy from within. Happiness is our true nature that lies within and does not depend on the external world.

Happiness is our true nature means we are effortlessly happy. Do not be dependent on external things for your happiness.

🌸Chapter 5 Shlok verse -22

ये हि संस्पर्शजा भोगा दुःखयोनय एव ते।

आद्यन्तवन्तः कौन्तेय न तेषु रमते बुधः।।5.22।।


Happiness born from our sense organs is the source of suffering and the wise man never takes interest in such happiness. As we learned in verse 5.21 that happiness is our true nature so we are naturally happy. The happiness we get from the external world is momentary and it will vanish after some time so the wise people who know the secret of happiness are not dependent on these things.

Find happiness within not in the external world.

🌸Chapter 9 Shlok verse -22

अनन्याश्चिन्तयन्तो मां ये जनाः पर्युपासते।

तेषां नित्याभियुक्तानां योगक्षेमं वहाम्यहम्।।9.22।।


Lord Krishna says, if someone contemplates him with all his heart, then he takes the worries of his life and household on himself.

Keep Lord Krishna in your thoughts, in your heart and all your worries will be taken care of by him.

These are the few life lessons learned from Shrimad Bhagavad Gita and many more leanings will be added in the future with all the details. Jai Shree Krishna.

Picnic spot in Nashik - Floral Sojourn

Picnic spot in Nashik- Floral Sojourn

Nashik is a beautiful city with wonderful nature and perfect weather. There are many resorts and theme restaurants in the lush greenery of Nashik. I love Nashik city and I want to explore each and every corner of the city to the fullest. Every weekend, most of the time, we try to explore the new misal point in Nashik and this Sunday I found an amazing picnic spot "Floral Sojourn" where we spent our whole day amid nature and it was a great experience. If you are wondering "how can I spend my whole day in Nashik?" then you should come here and enjoy your day.

picnic spot in nashik

Floral Sojourn - Picnic spot in Nashik

Floral Sojourn, spread around more than 2-acre land including various types of trees and plants, is a pioneer in the field of landscape farming coupled with agro-tourism. You can come here to celebrate any event or party, or just picnic or day out plan.

Activities or things to do at Floral sojourn

  • You can cook your own food here. The owner will provide you the utilities such as gas connection, utensils, etc and you have to bring all the items needed to cook.
  • You are free to play any game here within the premises. If you are there for a picnic then you will be provided with several games such as cricket, dodge ball, badminton, twister, carrom, chess, dart, music chair, mini-golf, and many more. You can also bring your own games if you want.
  • There is a treehouse that was closed due to Covid and still, it is closed. I loved it and I wish I could stay there once.
  • You can have your meal amid the peaceful, lush greenery of beautiful nature.
  • Walk around the property and explore the several trees, plants, and flowers.
  • There are various types of swings including hammocks.
  • So many seating areas for tourists to enjoy the view.
  • You can enjoy rope climbing activity and have a feel of adventure.
  • Also, the owner will brief you about the property, trees, and plants if you are interested.

Have a look at the below video and explore the Floral Sojourn virtually.

Floral Sojourn entry fee

You need to pay the entry fee of Rs. 150 for 3 hours and Rs. 200 for 6 hours of picnic duration. These are the rates for special days otherwise you can pay Rs. 125 for 3 hours and Rs. 175 for 6 hours. The entry fee is the same for adults and kids.


Now let's talk about the food. As I mentioned earlier in the post you can cook your own food here. If you do not want to cook then you can go with any of the food delivery apps to manage the food. Zomato, Swiggy they all deliver here. If you inform the flower owner in advance about the meal, he will also arrange for your food.

Also, read Misal destinations in Nashik with activities for kids.

We ate Misal pav there, prepared by the owner itself, and that was good in taste. We had an option of having a village meal but we did not inform them on time so missed it and later we ordered pizza from Swiggy.

Floral Sojourn charged Rs. 90 per plate for Misal pav which does not include curd, papad, and sweet dish. You have to pay extra for all these things.

Misal was good in taste, the sweet dish was okay but I did not like the tea.

floral sojourn misal pav nashik

If you are planning a trip to the Floral Sojourn then I suggest you must be very clear with your food management. If you are planning to cook then you must carry everything required for cooking after having a discussion with the owner of the property. If you want the owner to manage the food for you then you have to give all the details of the breakfast, tea and lunch you will be having during your whole day picnic there.

Our picnic experience in Floral Sojourn

We spent 6 hrs there and it was so much fun and completely relieving. You need to book your visit in advance otherwise you won't be allowed to walk in inside. The day we visited, there were only 2 groups, one was our group of 6 people and the other group had 3 people. No crowd at all and we had our own space and privacy. I loved it.

When we went there, all the leaves had fallen and there was not much greenery but still, it was fine to be there. Now I would like to visit again in the month of April or May when there will be greenery everywhere and many beautiful flowers will bloom.

Entrepreneurship Mindset Curriculum and The Business Blasters program

Entrepreneurship Mindset Curriculum (EMC)

Entrepreneurship Mindset Curriculum (EMC) is introduced to the students of class 9th to 12th in Delhi government schools in the year 2019. The objective of EMC is to prepare the students to understand entrepreneurship at an early age so that they are more capable to choose their careers wisely. The students' mindset is developed to think like an entrepreneur who also offers job opportunities to the society.

EMC means that our students can identify their potential, qualities, polish their skills, and take responsibility for their career or a professional journey they are going to join in further life. Whether it is a job, start-up, or managing their own family business - Entrepreneur Mindset will help them everywhere.

the business blasters program

Entrepreneurship mindset prepares the students to dream big, recognize the opportunities around, try new challenges, plan, and execute accordingly. With this mindset, the students try to learn new things wherever possible, courageous enough to bounce back with innovation in case of failure.

The Business Blasters program

The Business Blasters is the part of the EMC which is applicable for the students of classes 11th and 12th in Delhi government schools. It is a practical component under which each student is provided Rs 2000 to develop a new business idea or the old business idea with some innovation in it. The student can do it alone or in a team. Working in a team benefits in terms of gathering money, support from teammates, and their ideas too.

Its purpose is to bring out that hidden personality inside you who has the courage to do something new with confidence, in a new way. Even if you fail, you learn something from this failure also.

Business Blasters program benefits

  • This will change your thinking and the way you work, which will be beneficial for you in further studies, jobs, or even in business.
  • If you are successful in your new business ideas in the Business Blasters program, then you can get direct admission to the best university in Delhi or India (such as DTU, NSUT, IP, and IGDTUW).
  • With successful business ideas, you can become a job provider that will be helpful for others.

The Business Blasters TV show

The Business Blasters TV show is also being aired on television where we can see the interaction between the students (team members of the project) and investors (well-established personalities in society). 

Tv channels where you can see The Business Blasters program episodes:

  • India TV channel
  • Aaj Tak
  • Zee TV
  • NDTV 24*7
  • ET NOW
  • CNBC TV18

Recently I have seen this program on India TV NewsChannel. Investors question the students about their project, planning, costing estimation, profit, etc to estimate the students need help or not and what kind of help they need.

If the students impress them with their performance and their project then they may bag the investment amount (needed for their business idea), orders/the mentorship that will be helpful to grow the business.

How to join The Business Blasters program?

You can join The Business Blasters program as a mentor or investor. Also, you can help these young blasters by giving them orders for their products. Go through "", the official website dedicated to this program. Click on the "Support Now" button to help one of the participating team, a form will open that will ask you a few questions regarding yourself and whom you want to support and in which form as a mentor, an investor or you want places your orders to one of the teams.

Apart from the TV channels, you can see The Business Blasters program episodes on the "Delhi Government" Youtube channel, otherwise, you may also find these episodes on the official website of The Business Blasters.
