    Indoor Activities in Mumbai Rain

    While some of us love the rains and monsoons, we also hate the muddy streets that come with it. Also, carrying that extra umbrella and taking it out after it suddenly starts raining is pretty irritating. Sometimes we carry raincoats, which makes it all the more inconvenient to wear before we get wet.

    Due to this, many people avoid going outdoors and thus, the ways of having fun decreases. If you are a victim of this and can relate to this, you should try out some of these mind-blowing indoor activities which will keep you fully engaged, regardless of the outside weather.

    There are many fascinating activities one can do at home such as baking delicious items, playing cards or organizing a camp or pillow fort at home. Also, you could learn some magic tricks to surprise your friends, have a karaoke concert, conduct some cool science experiments or relax and read or play video games with your buddies. While these activities do keep you busy for some time, they might not be the best way to spend the monsoon.

    If you’re hanging out with your friends or want to get that outdoor touch, you should try visiting some exciting places. While museums and art galleries are always something you can visit, they are not something adventurous. The best adventurous indoor places that this extravagant city has to offer, are Smaaash at Lower Parel, Kidzania, Ghatkopar and Clue Hunt.

    Clue Hunt currently has 5 outlets in Mumbai and 13 different themes to play. It is present in Andheri, Bandra, Fort, Lower Parel, and Phoenix Marketcity Kurla. Clue Hunt basically conducts room escape games where a group of 2-8 people are locked inside a room which has clues hidden around it to help you escape the room. One needs to use their wits to find their way out along with teamwork and cooperation. Hence, it is an ideal place to go to, with your friends to have fun and at the same time, develop your analytical and logical skills. So do go visit these places this monsoon and don’t let the weather come in your way and stop you from having fun!

    Why did the detective grow carrots and potatoes in his farm?
    Because he was fond of undercover crops.

    Forgive my miserable (or should I say mystery-able) puns for I am just a helpless addict raised by crime fiction mystery novels. My only regret of being a part of techno-age is not being a part of Golden age of mystery fiction. In time between the First and the Second World Wars, readers turned to detective stories as a means of coping with the modern world around them. In a way, murder mystery mirrored the events happening in the real life: the cozy village, the secretive mansion or luxury liner invaded by murder became a metaphor for the violent upheaval visited upon one’s homeland by enemy invaders. The difference being with careful placement of the text, social chaos were reduced to a game and the reader was invited and empowered to join forces with the detective to restore order to the world. Something that most citizens felt powerless about as world forces battled around them.

    I read voraciously as a child. More than anything else, I devoured mysteries, first Encyclopedia Brown and then The Hardy Boys. My personal favorite being Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s unarguably best creation ever, Sherlock Holmes. Holmes’s popularity and fame are such that many have believed him to not be a fictional character but a real individual. In many of the stories, Holmes dives into an apparent mess to find an item most relevant to a mystery. According to his biographer friend Dr. Watson, “Holmes had no breakfast for himself, for it was one of his peculiarities that in his more intense moments, he would permit himself no food and I have known him to presume upon his iron strength until he has fainted from pure inanition”. My babysitter got me to bed with stories told in serial fashion based on books and movies she loved. One of it being about 10 strangers trapped on an island by a homicidal maniac and how one-by-one they died in horrible fashion. This unbeknownst to me, was my first taste of Agatha Christie.

    With time and age we have only disparted from these mesmerizing mystery and detective novels. Thank God for Clue Hunt bringing back the mysteries in our lives with their over a dozen different themed games in a fun, adventurous and thrilling way. The you-get-to-be-a-part-of-the-story thing I talked about before can now be experienced for real with Clue Hunt, Mumbai.
