Travel Diary | Day 13 : The Botanical Garden Day

The drops of water

[ 19.10.2014 [ Sunday ]

Lazy Sunday morning, no early wake up calls, no sevas, late breakfast and of course planning to go out for lunch. Today’s plan was to visit a Botanical garden nearby. After the breakfast and meeting some friends our plans changed. So we went to catch up with some more friends for lunch. It was a very interesting conversations happened during the lunch; it started from veganism and reached till Osho!

After the lunch, it was sort of late to visit the botanical garden. Anyway we decided to visit the place. After exploring some mud roads, finally we found out the entrance to the place. As it was a Sunday and it was around 4 in the evening, we couldn’t find anyone in that place. So we intruded and explored the place.

The best thing happened at this place was, we got to see a lot of butterflies!

And the entire place was for ourselves. A deserted botanical garden.

I think we missed the better part of the garden due to lack of guidance. So we came back a little disappointed.

There was a meeting at Sadhana at 7 after the dinner. It was the usual Sunday meeting. And every volunteers were supposed to attend it.  So we reached Sadhana before 6 and had dinner. The meeting started after the dinner. In that meeting community shifts for the week were allotted to different volunteers. And some community announcements were made. And later the night, there wasn’t anything very interesting. After a few conversations, I went to sleep. Goodnight to one more day at Sadhana.
