Water Retreats to Escape To Before Summer Ends

Ten Second Takeaway

It’s been a hot couple of months and there’s still a couple of them left. With some long weekends on the calendar, we are going on a lake resort trail… only because the beach is too far away.

Cottages dot either side of the man-made lake, Lakshman Sagar and each open upto a splashing pool of their own. Boy, can we only imagine the champagne flowing on a romantic break here. The neighbouring village has inspired each cottage, but not one is identical to the other. Outside, the pools overlook the lake while inside, the interiors are something else-with brass vessels and accoutrements that reflect the local culture of Rajasthan. You can go in for local liquor tasting, star gazing or simply chilling by the rock-cut pool.

Where: Lakshman Sagar, Raipur Road, Near Haripur Railway Station, Dist. Pali, Raipur

Distance from Delhi: 514 kms approx {8 hours}

Price: INR 12,000 onwards

Shadow and Light Live at Lodi - The Garden Restaurant

Shadow and Light was born on a cold November afternoon in New Delhi, from the efforts of two people - Pavithra Chari and Anindo Bose; to unlock the potential within a few notes of music. The styles of music infused in the compositions are Hindustani classical, pop, jazz, and electronic. The vibe is contemporary and cinematic. With over two years of songwriting, the duo released their debut self-titled album in June 2014. The songs on the album are written about personal milestones and obstacles, about the eternal mystery that we call life and the little everyday things that matter to us most.

Shadow & Light have played at festivals and venues across the country including ‘Friends of Music’, ‘Chandigarh Jazz Festival’, ‘DIY Festival’ and ‘Fete de la Musique’. In 2015, they were chosen as the 1st runner ups of the ‘Sennheiser top 50’ competition and won the opportunity to record with one of Bollywood’s top production studios - ‘Flying Carpet Productions’.
