We assemble at Mutthangi, underneath the Outer Ring Road bridge, or somewhere similar. Once everyone that is supposed to come has come, we start the drive/ride to the location on the bank of the Singur Dam, a distance of 60km taking approximately 100 minutes to drive.
On reaching the location, we explore the place and relax on the bank of the reservoir, playing games and other activities.
After experiencing a beautiful lake-sunset along with a serving of herbal tea, we get back to the campground, and pitch tents, and start our barbecue dishing out some chicken legs and veg delicacies.
All the while, multiple games are available like chess, carroms, etc. to while away the time.
After the barbecue session, organic and traditional dinner (soup + mixed vegetable + upma/pongal/khichdi) will be served .
Post dinner, for those interested, we have a small beginner's astronomy session, and some very deep philosophical discussions always happen aroung the campfire.
After waking up to a beautiful sunrise, you are served traditional Kashayam to jerk you out of your sleepy slumber. The morning will see a farm tour, followed by breakfast (porridge/pongal/khichdi/upma/idli + millet flakes with milk/herbal tea).
Post breakfast, you take part in hands-on activities in the vegetable garden that includes learning seed sowing, transplanting, weeding, mulching, etc., thereby taking a deep dive into how permaculture/agriculture works.
You would be ravenous after no doubt a hard activity, and by the time you are finished with your actIvities, delicious lunch (brown rice / millet roti + dal + vegetable curry + curd + sweet) will be served.
We start our drive back after a weekend well spent and return to the city by 1500hrs, and back to routine.
