I was supposed to visit Chiguru Farm in March and March is when I did visit … but the first March was 2020 and the next was 2021, a whole year later. It was eerie, as if time had had not moved at all and I had merely stepped across the dark chasm that was the year 2020!!!
Covid disrupted our world in unimaginable ways and reduced me to a to lifestyle that was so alien to me. A whole year of staying still at home and also some unexpected medical issues/surgery that were equally bizarre, drove me insane and my brain felt like it would explode in confinement.
So finally when my stars and the farm owner Raghavendra Bhat, eventually aligned to transport me to the farm, I felt like a prisoner who was granted an unexpected release.
And Chiguru Farm with its gentle aura and refreshing environment, was truly an apt debut for my first travel blog after one whole year.
Located in the Ramnagaram district of Karnataka, India and barely 65 km from the heart of my city, Bangalore, the journey too was not arduous for me in my current situation and the entire experience was exactly what my body and soul needed for revitalization.
So join me as we enter rural India, far from the stress and unrest of urban life and enjoy the place for a few moments or longer if you decide to actually pay them a visit … and I highly recommend that you do 😀
