I’ve been watching this amazing show called “Sense8” available on Netflix. Everyone who knows me understands the snail’s pace I take usually to complete a season of any show. It takes me months. But here, I got done within 2 weeks! The entire concept made me go bonkers and hence I have compiled a list of 8 reasons why you must not at all miss this show. Please read them and definitely add this in your list of shows to watch before you die.

  1. Concept: How would you feel when you realize you are connected to 7 people and they are to you. The show’s main storyline dwells on 8 different individuals who are a new breed of humans who are connected to each other and can feel, speak, think what the other person is going through.
  1. Diversity in Casting: They have ensured to bring in the authenticity here by bringing 8 people of different nationalities. Means you will find 8 different countries, different cultures, different emotions and languages being used here.
  1. Exploring different individuals: I like the way they have added so much of genuineness in their story. You will find people who are straight, a homosexual and a transgender here. That’s how real as a story can get, right?
  1. Surprising elements: The 8 are connected in such a fashion that they can use each other’s skills and language too. Don’t be surprised if you find a German talk in Hindi or an Icelander talk in Korean!
  1. Storyline: The storyline in Season 1 is more of a grasping material for all of us as we try to understand if this concept is true and that if we can feel what another person is feeling thousands of miles away. It is fast paced, it will make you think and you are bound to love them all.
  1. Emotional connect: Finding someone to talk to when you are sad is very important. Many don’t get to do that and either slip into a dark place or even worse. Here, when someone feels sad or needs help, the others can come to their aid. Wouldn’t that be amazing if we got that opportunity too?
  1. Direction: It is a task, trust me when me as a viewer finds it difficult to place who is talking in one scene. I can hardly imagine how they directed each sequence showing different characters performing a single task in the same way! A grand salute for them for their good work.
  1. Breaking stereotypes: Did you know that when I say they all can feel each other’s pain, I really meant it. A man can feel the pain when one of the females has menstrual cramp pain. If one of them gets pregnant, a man would immediately feel everything, right from the joy, pain and irritation! It is indeed different and not something that I’ve seen in many shows.

Here are my 8 reasons to watch this show. Don’t worry. There are no spoilers as such which will ruin your series watching experience. It’s something that I really want people to watch and hence please do check this out.

Imagine a place where you are standing still.

All that’s around you is greenery.

There are calm winds creating a soothing sound.

You do nothing but get immersed in this moment.

This moment is of nothingness.

Sometimes doing nothing is good.

 

Arwa farms is one such place which has all of the above. This is the brainchild of ace photographer Fawzan Husain, a photographer who has been in the corporate industry for almost 2 decades capturing moments commercially and also in Bollywood. He now has created a place that’s organic, nature friendly and perfect for those who like to unwind with a calm environment away from the city.

Capturing a moment of the man who himself is awaiting to click that perfect shot

 

The meaning of Arwa is “Pure”. As the name suggests, Arwa Farms is as pure of an environment you’re bound to feel in or around Mumbai. You can find this farm 15-20 minutes away from Dahanu Rd station. For Mumbaikars, this should not be more than a 2-3 hour drive away. On the first look, you can witness the house being made using the bare minimum of non nature friendly materials. Using bricks, wood and every other nature friendly material, this place has been created.

 

There are many rooms which can accommodate a group of 4-5 in a single room and also a separate room for couples. They have an open space on the ground floor and also on the first floor. Both the open spaces are amazing, windy and perfect for playing games, huddling up and sharing stories and also having a drink and enjoying your dinner.

Fawzan explaining how the manure is made!

The area of this farm totals to 7 acres. Yes, 7 long acres of greenery, plantation of lemongrass, dragon fruits and pineapple, different leaves which are good for your health and many more. The manure is created here on the farm and utilized for growing everything. Most of the food you get to try has been grown on the farm itself. Having unpolished food, salt, sugar etc was something I only experienced back in Mangalore. It was nostalgic for me to be here and remember my home town.

When someone will ask me, what’s the hot topic about this place that makes me visit it instantly; I would say “There is nothing here”. Only those who are like minded would not only understand but also rejoice to visit such a place. There is no air conditioning and television. The network connection fluctuates all the time. If you like to connect with nature minus technology and leisure, this is the place you ought to visit. My stay here was nothing less than exceptional. Fawzan was an amazing host. In the farm daily, you can find him with the workers helping around with the farming. His creation is a way of giving back to the nature and that’s what I adore. It takes a lot of passion and will to take so much effort.

Today, finding a space in Bombay for your business is not easy. If it is easy, then it is costly. If it is not costly, then it’s far from the city. Your requirements don’t match mostly when it comes to finding an office space. There was a need for office spaces that could be rented out as it’s not easy to find such owners yourself and vice versa for the tenants. Hence brokers were contacted and the prices kept increasing. People needed a medium to find out such spaces that are vacant and could be rented immediately. Hence ODOCO came into the picture.

Who is ODOCO?

Odoco, an online community began in April 2018 as a venture to bridge the gap between tenants and owners with regards to office spaces. Their aim is to be like the Air BNB of office spaces.

What does ODOCO do?

An owner with a vacant space can register online with Odoco by providing them with all the basic details, amenities and pricing. The information provided is then displayed online to all the users with the contact details of the owner. For the owner, the best part of our portal is that if any potential tenant views the property, the owner gets a notification. They can follow up with the tenant and discuss the deal.

Who can Register?

Any owner that has a vacant space or any owner having unutilized space in their office can rent it to a business that needs it. Hence the concept of co-working comes into place. Smaller spaces lesser than 60 seats are also listed here. Hence you will regularly find a list of shared spaces for those who need it. Odoco makes sure of finding spaces that have these amenities; WiFi, clean workspace, good lighting, something to drink and clean washrooms which is an ideal requirement for a working space.

Future Plans:

They currently have listed 200+ offices across 6 cities in India and list about 4 new offices every day. Per seat inventory now stands at 13,000. Odoco plans to list over 800+ offices across 9 cities in India with 50,000 seats by the end of 2018.  Their main intention is to maintain a platform with complete transparency where users can connect with owners and owners can connect with users.

In conclusion, if you ever have an issue with finding the perfect office space for your needs within your budget, log on to ODOCO web portal and find your space.
