Afternoon in the park with my new friends from India


Hi Friends,

You know, making friends is one of the best things in life. It’s nice to have someone to talk to, to share experiences with, and to rely on. When you make friends, you open yourself up to a whole new world of possibilities.

Most people would say that experiences are always better when shared with friends. Whether it’s going out for drinks, seeing a movie, or traveling to a new destination, friends always make things more fun. At least that’s what most people believe.

Today, my new friends from the yoga studio I am staying in, Dr. Vikas, his wife, Dr. Shwetambari, and I, went to a local park to have some afternoon fun.

Join us for the fun and enjoy the afternoon with us in this post.


Jyotiba Garden

Location : 4/6/11061 & K-170, Adarsh Nagar, Kalewadi, Pimpri-Chinchwad, Maharashtra 411017

The park has limited operation hours, It opens at 5 am, then closes around 10 am, then opens again in the afternoon. That was sorta strange to me as most parks are open in the morning and close at dusk, but I guess it makes sense as it is too hot in the daytime.

Here are Vikas, myself, and Shwetambari. These 2 are such a joy to talk with and spend time around. Even thought it has only been a few days, I feel close to them allreayd.

Taking a leisurely stroll around the park is a great way to unwind after a long day. The fresh air and natural beauty of the park are a welcome respite from the hustle and bustle of the city. The birdsong and rustling of the leaves are soothing sounds that can help you relax and clear your mind.

It was a beautiful day at the park and a lot of other families were also taking advantage of the nice weather by enjoying a walk, a picnic, or just a good old-fashioned game of catch. The kids were laughing and running around, and the parents were enjoying the peace and quiet. It was a perfect day.

I think these where trash bins… but I am not sure. The dinosaur motif was around the park… it was an interesting design choice… Sure, I can see how feeding T-Rexs your trash would be fun for young ones… and old ones… haha, so yes, a good choice I think.

The park overall is small, and you could do a few laps around those winding paths. Just a little ways off, Puna’s busy streets streamed with non-stop traffic and life… But here, you forget for a second about that… and just enjoy the walk.

At the far side of the park, we found a quiet place, Vikas asked if I could give a video testimonial about the time here, and I said yes. Hahaha, He also talked me into a selfie as well doing a yoga pose. So, here it is.

I do recomend this yoga traning corse, its one of the few that is endorced by the new India Yoga certification program acrocss India. If you wanted to learn more you can go to this web page https://www.swastiyogacenter.com/ .  Tell them that I sent you.  🙂

After the video, the inner Circus guy came out, and I started to balance things on my face. Haha, I don’t know why, but It’s fun to do such things. I encourage you to do as well. Next time you are bored, take something and balance it on your face. At first, you will drop it, but keep it up, and soon you will master the face balancing of things.

Then the circus side really came out, and I asked Vikas to stand on me. Hahaha, he was a natural at this, I bet it is the years of Yoga training he has.

While Shwetambari was a bit hesitant at first, she tried and also was an instant pro. NICE!

Then the circus mood took over Shwetambari too, She had Vikas do a revers thy stand on her, first day, 10 minutes in, and BAM, naturals these 2,

A small crowd of kids gathered and watched us act silly, then we had to wrap up as both Shwetambari, and Vikas had to go to the office to treat clients. So we walked back, past friends and families enjoying time together.

For real, taking a leisurely stroll in a park can help to reduce stress, according to a recent study. Researchers found that people who walked in a park for just 20 minutes felt less stressed than those who didn’t walk at all. The study participants who took a walk in the park also had lower levels of cortisol, a stress hormone. So, go take a walk in the park!

Here is a selfie of these two and me.

Outside the gate, we had a glass of sugar cane juice for refreshment. Yes, it looks like beer… but it is not… really Hmm, I think you don’t believe me… but for real yo.

Vikas and Shwetambari down theirs like a champ, me, I had to do one more selfie before doing the same. Really, it’s not beer, its sugar cane, you got to believe me on that one. 😛

In conclusion, spending time with friends is a great way to enjoy life and have some laughs. Whether you’re hitting up the park, going out for coffee, or just taking a stroll around town, make sure to take advantage of the company you keep. They’ll make the good times even better.

Thanks for joining me today, be amazing and see you soon.

Cheers
