Mélange – Harshgiri Resort Picnic

After a brief hiatus, Mélange kick-started its new year with a day-long picnic to Harshgiri Resort near Shahpur. Our endeavour, as always, is to bring as many youngsters and fresh faces as we can to each of our events, so that they can take part and share the experience of Mélange. This year also saw a lot of new faces in the committee, who bring with them a new perspective, and their own unique way of doing things. And of course, this attracted a lot of first timers to the picnic as well.


An eager bunch of 50-odd youngsters left in a bus for the venue, making enough noise to prove their enthusiasm! The bus journey was spent between games of Taboo, Dumb Charades, and of course singing, if you can call it that. On the way, we stopped at Shahpur Temple, which has, after its facelift and construction, become a sight to behold.

On reaching the resort, everyone had breakfast and then the activities began. Teams were formed and played Scavenger Hunt, Tug-of-war, and innovative versions of football and volleyball. The weather was nice and cool, and that helped. After a break for lunch, was the traditional Housie (how can a picnic be complete without one!), and later, some members enjoyed the waterfalls, while others displayed their newly learnt poker skills. Some of the more daring also displayed their ape-like qualities/ nimble-footedness with an impromptu tree climbing session!

After enjoying Pav-Bhaji and an evening tea, it was time to head back. (Sadly, the day has to end sometime!) So a joyous, if slightly exhausted bunch made their way back to town, looking ahead to the next offering.

And that is how it is at Mélange. We try to organize a variety of events and workshops that will have something for everyone. Members expect something new from us, and we expect to meet their expectations! And if the year ahead is anything like the start, it promises to be a super hit!
