Best Resorts in Bangalore for Camping with cricket ground.

It takes a great deal of mental gymnastics to go through the week than it did when the year started. The fear that slowly crept within towards the end of February and completely over powered us with its claws emerging from the smoky clouds, led some of us to pack up everything – more so, leave everything behind and go back to our roots. Either physically or mentally. Or, mentally and physically both by being away from our loved ones.

The amazing thing is that everything is going back to normal. People have come back from their state of dispair, their state of non productivity, their state of over-compensating for every little thing, conformity, and their home town.

It does not mean that the threat hovering over us with its claws has disappeared or we have found a vaccine or become immune to it. When I say we have gone back to our roots I mean this: We have made some basic habits our responsibility to use daily. Which could have been the idea in the first place. We have now made use of napkins, washing of hands, using hand sanitizers our guns and ammunitions to fight the faceless threat.

Countries for once have come together to not make deals on weapons, or fighter planes, or the old cold war. Countries have joined hands to develop the cure so things go back to normal. Until then, we live in the ‘new normal’ greeting people in the age old Indian style, ‘Namaste’ or fist bumps.

Companies have however, started to call employees to slowly start working from offices. If not for the whole week at least twice a week so employees get in the habit of commuting and working from their designated desks. I have also heard from a few friends that start-ups have gone out of their ways and arranged team outings in Bangalore to resorts with camps so colleagues can revive the spark of the dynamic that was lost during the lockdown.

Resorts in Bangalore for corporate events, on the other hand have accepted the employee recuperation idea with both arms wide open by offering early bird package discounts, large group discounts, adventure activities, and free flood light games in resorts.
