When you think of taking a break from your routine and plan an outing, you have certain fixed notions in your mind. You draw up a mental picture of a god hotel or resort with five-star facilities. You would think of a swimming pool, spa, gym and sight- seeing. However, these things have become commonalities. Even the breaks become dull when there is no novelty. Change does not always imply luxury, comfort and good food; in fact, you enjoy these facilities at home round the year. A good change in the routine must offer a complete change of scene. If you want a real, refreshing, vital change, you are welcome to Morachi Chincholi.
Here you don’t travel in comfortable cars and jeeps to watch points and valleys from binoculars. Here you travel in noisy tractors in farms. Alternatively, you can choose a bumpy bullock-cart ride on rough village tracks. The sight- seeing spots consist of temples and green pastures.
At Morachi Chincholi, you will get the usual South Indian, Punjabi, Gujarati, Continental food; but what you will love is the taste of bhakri, pithla ( Zunka) and burning hot red or green chatnis to go with vegetarian or non-vegetarian options, all prepared on chulhas in the rural style. You will end up smacking your lips and with watering eyes.
Morachi Chincholi is not that comfortable, luxurious, elegant, cool, artificial hill-station experience; it is a hard, hot, realistic rural experience.
At Morachi Chincholi, you will not get a chance to on a shopping spree in crowded market places selling clothes and bags and jewelry at exuberant prices. Here you can take a walk through farms and fields and watch the blue skies above and green fields beneath, with hills and mountains at the borders. Trees, birds and animals have nothing to take back except wonderful memories of a special holiday.
And now we come to the climax. What makes Morachi Chincholi different from any other place in the world is that the village is an abode of peacocks, our national bird. You can see hoards of them when you step out of your rooms. Their peacock cries hail you; their colourful plumes attract you. And if you are lucky enough and don’t miss the rainy season, you can see them dancing gracefully in the cloudy weather with their beautiful wings spread out with vibrant colours.
So Morachi Chincholi will be a special break from your routine. It is at a convenient distance from Pune, Mumbai and Ahmednagar and an ideal spot for a monsoon weekend. You will not carry back trinkets or a lethargic feeling; but you will return to work with vigour and energy, refreshed in mind and body and carry back unique memories of green farms, farm animals, rough rides, rural cuisine and exotic peacocks.
