Chirag and Jatan

Every person dreams of achieving big but only a few gets the chance to actually savour it.

These two guys, Jatan & Chirag, not only dreamt big but also went from all odds to turn it into reality.They knew it was tough but there is a saying when the going gets tough,the tough get going. It was their headstrong attitude and to think out of the box which helped them to achieve what they wanted to and from there the concept SUKH SADHANA took birth.
As the blog says , it’s a door to escape to a new world which is rich in its culture, tradition, affection and love;where u get the chance to see the mother nature at its pristine form;where your gusto compels you to reach the peak of the mountain n then see the world around..Technically we call it Rural tourism, but if you ask me,I would like to call it-“Rendezvous with nature”.
So all u people who are looking for an adventurous excursion, you are knocking at the right door.
We thank these two guys to come out with such concept and let us be the part of it. It is a great learning n experience..

The Making

Sukh Sadhana started off with the need to do something different than usual. Chirag and Jatan conceptualised this idea when they went for a rural visit to vaigaon as a part of our college trip.

The college group

A brain wave came to both of them and got into talks with the village gram panchayat.

Chirag talking to the Up-Sarpanch

The rooms earlier

Both, themselves went in a minitruck to vaigaon with the initial startup material.

The Destination

The pooja took place.

And the work started off

And this is what came as a result of sustained efforts.

Meanwhile the Logo was ready!!

Sukh Sadhana - A Rural Tourism Concept

Rural tourism is a concept very unique in itself and simplicity of life is the best definition for rural tourism. India pulsates with villages and they still continue to house and nourish the finest traditions India can boast of. Rich in its culture and traditions, Indian villages are a microcosm portrait of the nation in its best way.

We have endeavoured to build up this same experience in the real village. We're talking of "Vaigaon" a small hamlet located about half hour from Wai (Satara).
It'd be grossly unjust to compare a normal vacation to the experience of vaigaon which offers you the experience of the mighty Krishna River, the Historic Kamalgarh fort, the scenic balkawdi dam and the sweet strawberry farms to keep you occupied in natures trance all day long. The sahyadri range gives vaigaon its crowning glory and sunsets on the hill just cant get better.
