Valentine’s Week knocks at our gate. February not even starts, that romance already begins to run afloat in air. The first week goes in planning, while the second one runs out in implementing. Where is the time? While most people have valentine plans decided one month back or sometimes an year back, there are some like me who are just as instant and live-in-the-moment type (we freeze our plans a day before). So if you are one like me, here is a tailored key for you. (You can thank me later). 😉
Here is a list of things you can do for your loved ones, on these magical days.
Apart from spelling the 3-letter magical word, do more. Go beyond just saying. Plan a short weekend for her on the 11 and 12 February, which happens to be Promise day and Hug day respectively. If you were looking for some Indian locations to keep the budget in check plus lesser travelling formalities, here are a couple of events you both will remember for a lifetime, I bet:
- International World Music Festival in Udaipur
The International Music Festival is a music lover’s first choice. It boasts of top bands and singers like Kailash Kher and Kailasa. Bands like Advaita, Swarathama , Kabir cafe and the alike.
This multi-venue music festival, cutting across several genres of music will usher in more than 100 global artists and ensembles from over 12 countries including Spain, Ghana, Venezuela, Italy, France and India among many others.
Venue: Fateh Sagar Paal lake, Udaipur
Date: 10-12 February, 2017
- Desert Festival in Jaisalmer
This grand festival arrives every year, leaving behind its imprint on the minds of visitors, bringing them back year after year. Not even the locals, the festival attracts a host of worldwide artists and foreign visitors which makes it internationally recognised.
During these three days of desert festival, the sand town situated in the heart of Thar Desert comes alive with trail of events, plays and musical performances. The festival is adorned with a battery of Rajasthan centric competitions, like camel polo, turban tying competition Marushree contest (Mr. Desert) and the like, all of which will soak you in the adventurous fervor like never before.
Venue: Sam Sand Dunes, 42 kms away from Jaisalmer.
Date: 8 to 10 February, 2017
3. If you are busy in the Valentine week, and cursing your job for not allowing you sufficient recreation time, here is another go-to-destination which you can plan out with your lover. “Come late but come classy” is a good motto to follow, afterall.
On a later day, there is the Heliride festival which will be organized in Jaipur for all lovebirds to relish a together-time in air, witnessing the enthralling architectural beauty of Jaipur. Taking a bird-view from atop was never so endearing. Book your seats soon, so you don’t regret more. Get going, folks! What are you waiting for?
Date: 17 to 23 February, 2017
Happy Valentine Week, all!
