The playful weather of monsoon is here, and with the May heat behind us, the worst is over. The pitter-patter season of hot chai and pakoras, calls for some fun things to do this weekend. Here’s our pick:
Ahimsa (Vegan) Retreat
If you haven’t heard of it yet, please register before they’re booked out! After the extraordinary success of Ahimsa Festival in November, last year, the Ahimsa Parmo Dharma group is back with a 2 day retreat near Mumbai. A more personal, intimate gathering of people who enjoy nature. There’s a lot panned out for these 2 days with talks from eminent professionals who’re all walking the talk of compassion in their respective fields, yoga and meditation for the tired soul, vegan food that is healthy and oil-free, spending time with nature, networking with people who feel as compassionately about animals and nature, in this beautiful weather. Don’t miss this!
