We have been visiting mussoorie since 2011 and almost every year. There are many areas where you can book your stay ex. Library End, Picture Palace, Landour and Barlowganj. Barlowganj is 5 kms from mall road and mainly has 5 star properties such as Jaypee Residency Manor. Picture Palace is the best area to book your hotel as it nearby to the mall road and the road to landour goes near to picture palace. If you love to stay in serenity and a little away from the hustle bustle then opt for library end, we stayed once on the library side and it was amazing.

Canvas Music Hall

All roads led to The People and Co in Cyberhub as Delhi NCR was treated to a colossal music invasion of one of India’s most celebrated band, ADVAITA that kicked off an unforgettable experience in the city. A mélange of fusion music culminated on a high note at Canvas Music Hall, Gurgaon as the music community of the city came together to raise toast to good music with more who were in all applause for its very first extravaganza.

The performance saw an electrifying line-up on stage coupled with ecstatic energy from music lovers who thronged the venue in big numbers. Delhi NCR was witness to some of the best stage production and design it has ever seen with live performances, scrumptious food and sassy ambience. Canvas Music Hall is the next big premium live music destination in town.

About Advaita

Advaita is an eclectic fusion band based in New Delhi, India. Since their inception in 2004, they have established themselves as one of the most innovative and original acts on the Indian music scene. Advaita has successfully carved out a niche for their style of music in the global context, while staying true to their characteristically Indian roots. Advaita’s music gives the listener the opportunity to enjoy the brilliance of Hindustani classical, as well as the thrill of rock. From the smooth, polished husky tone of the Western Vocalist to the deep and powerful delivery of the Hindustani Vocalist, the music of Advaita is further elevated by the synthesis of guitars, keyboards, drums, the tabla and the exotic drone of the Sarangi. Of all Indian instruments, it is said that the sarangi most resembles the sound of the human voice. Advaita was the only band to be part of season 1 of MTV Coke Studio India. The spectacular response to ‘Coke Studio’ resulted in the band being given the honor of doing a full one hour episode on the legendary show MTV Unplugged.

Casual Fun! By John Players

There are different ways a person can carry himself and summer fashion comes with a potpourri of flavors. And for men and women are alike, believe me when I say this !

Its great to see a brand evolving , into a one stop shop for all your needs, opening more windows of styling. Feisty prints,funky tees,solids and denims they have the most of it. John Players is young and esquire.

Look 1:
I choose dark colors and i love to pair different shades of blue. So in this look i paired a washed denim with printed royal blue shirt with blue leather loafers. The entire is look is to prove that you can match same color tones without looking weird.

Look 2:

Sometimes you feel like to throw away the skinny fit jeans and fitted shirt to get into something more comfortable. The second look is for those people who wanna be cool and casual without compromising their attire. One can slip those flip flops and wear espadrilles or boat shoes.

IMG_4162 modified

Look 3:

This is my favourite look, you can dress up this way and carry a casual look. Not many people prefer wearing a tshirt beneath a shirt, but then if you pair it up properly then it looks dapper. This is most common attire for a college going kid or if he just wants to hangout with his friends.

Tex Mex With Pedros

Pedro’s is a takeaway and delivery outlet in Greater Kailash that serves excellent Mexican food. The menu offers a huge number of dishes to choose from.  From delicious sides & dips to flavoursome burrito bowls, Pedro’s will definitely amaze your taste buds.


We ordered the gigantic Southern Chicken Burger served with Potato Fries and an enormous Mama’s Burrito Bowl. This big burger was satisfying which had a succulent Panko crusted chicken patty topped with cheese, salsa, lettuce, tomatoes and Chipotle mayo. The bun however was quite soggy which made it difficult to eat the burger as it kept breaking despite the perfect dressing. The Potato Fries became very soggy as well which weren’t appetizing in the end.

Mama’s Burrito Bowl was pretty flavoursome served in a bowl with chilly lamb, rice, beans, veggies, homemade Granny’s guacamole, tomato salsa and sour cream. The combination of all the flavours was lip-smacking and the spiciness of the dish gave it a different taste. However, despite being a great dish, the rice at the bottom of the bowl was dry and over-crunchy which was kind of a joy kill.



The packaging is good and it keeps food fresh and hygienic. The pricing is reasonable in comparison to the quantities served. The portions of the dishes are quite large so it can be shared between two people. Different types of sauces like Chipotle Mayo, Tomato Salsa, Sour Cream and Mustard were served with the dish which was a plus point. Pedro’s offers a huge selection of dishes on its menu and the dishes are prepared with the right amount of Mexican flavours.

Ultimate Wellness-Atmantan Wellness Centre

Namaste!

                         Ultimate wellness haven in India, Atmantan Wellness Centre

Family Wellness_Atmantan (4)

With schools breaking for summer, Atmantan is taking the opportunity of this vacation time to introduce for the first time ever, a Family Wellness program inviting all parents to bring their children and enjoy a summer of interactive activities, introducing the concept of wellness in the most fun way possible!

Parents are quickly learning that the unhealthy lifestyle of today’s youth, influenced by bad eating habits, technological obsessions and stress from school work, is causing their immunity toward lifestyle diseases like childhood obesity and Type 2 diabetes to drop dangerously.  Children are especially vulnerable to these factors, and any harm caused in the midst of their development can reverberate through the rest of their lives. Today’s savvy parents, armed with more resources than ever before, are looking to the same spa and wellness therapies and techniques they’ve relied upon to improve their own lives to now nurture their children’s.

Family Wellness_Atmantan (1)

Thus, wanting to help parents instill healthy habits within their children at an early age to ensure good health in the future, Atmantan has curated a fun-filled program to keep them healthy and active through the summer. Some of the offerings of these programs include Garden Yoga, Zumba, Cooking classes, Trekking, a Boot-camp with group activities involving art and sports etc. While the policy at Atmantan typically does not permit guests under the age of 14, the summer break posed a great opportunity to introduce this program, for the first time ever.

Children’s wellness is becoming an increasing issue among today’s youth and mental disorders such as anxiety and depression are being overlooked. At Atmantan, the specialized health advisors will be conducting a workshop which broaches these topics in a non-intimidating and fun manner. The Family Wellness Program commences on May 15th and lasts till June 15th.

Atmantan is an integrated wellness destination spa and is one of India’s most luxurious, at that. Here we help you understand the relationship between sound nutrition and the functioning of the body. At this pristine destination you attain harmony with nature and return as a renewed individual, heart whole and fancy free.The resort offers an expanse of 6525 sq. ft. of fitness facilities in addition to world class spa and wellness therapies ranging from traditional Ayurveda, to Pranic chakra cleansing. The resort is the SPAFINDER Global winners for ‘Best wow factor’ and ‘Best for fitness’ titles of the 2016 Wellness travel awards and has also had the privilege to host guests like Karisma Kapoor, Sri Devi, Malaika Arora Khan, Nimrat Kaur, Masaba, Neena Gupta, Randeep Hooda and Sanjeev Kapoor to name a few.
