As a generation, we’re always up to something or the other during every day of the week. Changing the world, meeting deadlines, making tedious presentations, staying up all night laughing at memes, downing bottomless pitchers of cocktails to get over work stress to name a few. But the weekends and holidays; they belong to us, don’t they? They’re ours to exercise the ‘Couch Potato’ and ‘No Shower Saturday’ rights. Or to plan hikes and camping trips and fill every second of each day with excitement and thrill. 

Now, if you fall under the first category we suggest you check out this month’s binge-watch list first. But if you’d rather do something more exciting in your free time then we’ve got something special for you! 

Here’s a curated list of all the exciting events and stuff happening all around you and your city. There’s something to hold everyone’s passion and interest and God knows, we have a lot of them as a curious generation! So go on, scroll through, RSVP, make Whatsapp groups (if that ever works for you) and get started on making those adventurous plans!

#Repost @watchherworld ・・・ We were strolling around the #zirofestivalofmusic grounds when the anchor announced that there's something special happening for us. We could spot several Apatani women around us in their beautiful traditional dress and interestingly most of them chose to pair it with cool-ass #sneakers! (I love how jazzy the locals dress IRL) 😃 . Beautiful music started playing, of course I didn't understand what it meant; all I knew was that it was catchy and rhythmic like folk songs usually are. The women formed a line and started going around the field doing a simple dance step of swinging their arms forward and stepping one feet ahead with the rhythm. All the guests were asked to join in, and soon, a huge serpentine queue was going around the ground all synced to the vibe of the place. ♥️ . #Daminda is a #traditional #dance of the #apatanitribe of #arunachalpradesh . Belonging specifically to the residents of the Lower Subansari district of Ziro. It is usually performed at the #dreefestival , which marks the beginning of the the rice planting season in the valley. The Apatani women #pray for a good harvest and for protection from natural disasters. . There is so much more to Arunachal and #northeastindia that I'm left craving for. I feel I need to be back there as soon I touched base here at home! Oh Lord, make me rich soon 😂 . #zfm #zfm2018 #tribal #tribe #culture #natgeotraveller #folk #art #music #love #travelwithme #travelphotography #tblogger #travelbloggers #wanderlust #explore #incredibleindia #cntraveler

The desert masquerade: Hemis Festival Between the rugged terrains, valleys and seamless stretches of mountains, Ladakh encompasses a sublime feeling of solitude. The magnetic aura of the desert pulls travellers deeper within, disclosing unchartered territories filled with adventure and joy. The two-day Hemis festival highlights the Tibetan culture in Ladakh within its discreet community and brings them together in celebration. The Hemis Gompha monastery fills with colour as the two-tier fortress gets filled with eager audiences. The centre courtyards are staged for venerated plays with the beating of drums, cymbals, long horns and other local instruments. The dancers wear multi-hued mask, each different from the other depicting several characters of local legends and myths. The carnival peaks with music resonating through the air creating a magical ambience. The masquerade is led by the chief priests followed by Buddhist monks dressed in colourful robes. They celebrate the birth of Padmasambhava, the bringer of tantric buddhism to their land. Witness the diversity of India with this magical event with Terra Ignota. #hemisfestival #ladakh #traveltoindia #luxuryindia #explore #experientialtravel #dmc #inboundtravel #tourism

My first #behdeinkhlam and a wonderful one at that! 😊❤ One of the most important festival for the Jaintias (especially Pnars), this festival is celebrated after sowing is over. With a rich historical background, behdeinkhlam basically means driving away of plague with sticks. As for my personal experience, it was such a colourful and joyous one. A bit akin to rath yatra but ofcourse with a twist. And add the mouthwatering local cuisine and wonderful environment, it's majestic. I would definitely visit this festival, come next year. P.S Thanks to my darlings @seemamayang and @pspiya07 for all the fun and love. ❤ #nofilter #needed #behdeinkhlam #festival #awesome #time #celebration #with #loved #ones #tripping #with #friends #lovethisplace #lovethislife #indianfestivals #indiagram #igers #igersofindia #instavid #incredible #northeastindia #mesmerising #meghalaya #india
