Are we so lost in our own world that we cannot take some time out of our busy schedule to experience the beautiful nature surrounding us?
We decided to explore a fairly forgotten location amidst the concrete jungle of Mumbai. Not everyone is so lucky to have such a place in their own backyard. A place that is capable of taking away all the stress from your life. And if you are still wondering what is that place. It’s Mumbai city’s one of the most prized possessions, the Sanjay Gandhi National Park. It has been here since ages and yet we are overlooking nature’s beautiful creation. Well, we decided to explore it, and for exploring a special venue like this needed a special car, so we got ourselves Hyundai’s latest offering in the compact SUV segment, the Hyundai Venue.
We assembled at our office by 06:30 hours, and since this is the monsoon season, it was raining like Noah’s ark. It felt like there was no chance for us to visit the Park in this downpour. But the Rain Gods were kind enough to stop the downpour only for some time. We packed all the luggage inside the spacious boot of the Hyundai Venue and with the help of the Venue’s voice command feature set the destination up and off we went! Nowadays, the Western Express Highway remains busy in the early mornings due to the Metro construction equipment being transported. So, we had to take a different route which was accurately set up. The journey from our office to the Park was a 30 minute one. Like always there were a few people in the team who had forgotten to charge their smartphones. With the wireless charging option and one USB charging port available at the front along with a 12V charging socket available at the back under the rear AC vents, these guys sorted out their charging issues. On our 30 minute drive, some people sitting at the back seat even managed to fall asleep, thanks to the rear AC vents, making their nap extra comfortable. We arrived at the Park by 07:15 hours, and as soon as we entered the gate we were welcomed by the beautiful scenery from the lush green leaves. We were captivated by the sight of blooming flora and fauna. It is true, the best time to visit the Park would definitely be in the monsoon season. That’s when its actual beauty comes to life. We explored all the places possible in the Venue, starting our journey off from the top of the list — the Kanheri Caves.

IN-GAME VEHICLES WE WISH WERE REAL
Videogames never fail to transport us to a world that is far beyond our reach, yet controllable by the tips of our fingers (quite literally). While open-world games offer a vast, new lifestyle to explore, they also give us a taste of some unique vehicles. Well, calling them vehicles would be an understatement as these perform so many more tasks than just commute, but they’re some uber-cool pieces of machinery nevertheless. That said, here are some of the coolest in-game vehicles that we would love to test-ride!
