For anyone who lives in the city, we all know that waking up in peace is a luxury.  With the hustle and bustle, pollution and never ending tension, there is a lot on our mind and hence relaxing comes last on our list.

But not here!

Here, all your eyes can see is the color green.

Here, all you can hear is the sound of birds chirping, rain falling and winds blowing.

Here, all you can do is sit in silence and do NOTHING but still be happy.

Here….. Is Attra Holiday and Camping Farms!

What can I find in Attra Holiday and Camping Farms?

Attra has 10+ acres of nature loving land which houses 3 huge and spacious properties. These houses can accommodate a big crowd. The food is very good and is not your usual modern cuisine. It’s more on the Indian side but tastes too good. Apart from stay, they arrange for tons of activities to ensure you have a good time. These activities are;

  • Rifle shooting
  • Swimming Pool
  • Cricket
  • Football
  • Table Tennis/Carrom
  • Conference Room
  • Barbeque
  • They can also arrange a class for Yoga and Self defense!

Why should I visit Attra Holiday and Camping Farms?

When I visited Attra, it rained crazily. There was not much that I could do outdoors but that did not stop me from having a good time. The best thing about Attra is that it brings you close to nature.

  • You can take a walk around the property and bask in the scenic beauty around you.
  • You can use the swing and reminisce your childhood memories.
  • You can become a child again and go berserk running around.

Basically there’s something for everyone here. So hence I feel it’s an apt place for a holiday!

Where can I find Attra Holiday and Camping Farms?

Attra farms can be found on the Karjat-Khopoli route. You can reach here from both Pune and Mumbai. Via trains, you will have to get off at Karjat station and then take a cab/rickshaw towards the farms.

Are there any attractions around Attra Farms?

Yes. There are 2 such attractions which you can check out;

  • The famous Nitin Desai studios (ND) which has been used for shooting Big Boss and many more film sets.
  • Morbe Dam is very nearby and hence visiting a dam will be a good experience too.

To conclude, I would say that I have visited too many places over the past 3-4 years and Attra makes me want to visit them again and again! I will end my post by telling you that this place is for everybody! So do visit them when you can, for Attra is waiting to serve you!

BEING 27 gives me perspective about Life in a term I’d define as “Haseen Dard“! 

For those who don’t know about me, I’m Lancelot Quadras. 27. An MBA in Finance. I worked for 3 years in the accounts team. I left that job for a fresh start in something I like i.e. Content writing.  I sleep well nowadays without worrying. I have few friends whom I care for and more than half of them are convinced I’m going to hell. Yes, the irony there is alarming. I like to read, write, watch tv shows, try new cuisines and a believer in the little moments that give meaning to life.

So why do I write about this “Haseen Dard” today?

It’s been 1 month since I’ve been either reading stories online on mental health, tension, depression, anxiety, stress, suicide a lot. The concept of “mental health” has been on the rise recently. Recently, on day 3 of the Mother Mary Novena, I heard the priest who in his sermon again mentioned about the stress level which impacts our fragile mind and body very badly. His story about a youth who crumbles under pressure brought me to realize one thing; Tension is everywhere. There is no specific date or time. But if there was, I would term the age group of 25-30 as the highest.

Here, we are;

  1. Working towards increasing our salary
  2. Looking for better career options side by side
  3. Not being able to give time to things we like, family and friends
  4. Regretting that we are missing out on so much.
  5. Losing friends quickly.
  6. Losing interest in things we like because we have no time.
  7. Planning for the future as our parents cannot work forever.
  8. Planning for a new house before getting married.
  9. Oh yes, finding a suitable partner.
  10. Probably finding love too!

These are just the first 10 thoughts that popped on my mind. I respect those who prioritize well and manage a balance between their work life and personal life. I try my best to give time to the people I care for. But there are just 24 hours in a day and sometimes I really become selfish and slump on the couch and rest. It’s a guilty pleasure but I also believe in “Me Time”.

What did I learn during this period?

  1. There is no time for waiting. If there’s an opportunity, then take a decision. It’s either a yes or a no. Don’t just let it pass so that you can regret it for the rest of your life.
  2. Not even google can help you when you type “how to be happy”. Only you can. The only behavior you can control is your own. Prioritize your relationships, give time to those you care about and lastly…Love yourself.
  3. Stop looking at love quotes and dreaming about him/her. Don’t just use the love calculator and blush all day. No one has time. If you really like someone, grow some courage, walk up to them and let them know what you feel. Trust me, there is no worse regret than the ones where we didn’t speak our heart out.

So far, this is what I’ve learnt and I know there’s a lot more left to learn. Until then, please do comment on what was the stage where you were just too tensed and how did you come out of it unscathed!
