5 Cool Activities You Can Enjoy At Home Now That Summer Is Upon Us


As John Mayer crooned, ‘Cause a little bit of summer’s what the whole year’s all about.’ - summer, for us, brings back a lot of memories. It reminds us of those long summer vacations spent under a mango tree, the sweet scent of Mogra that envelopes the air just when the sun starts shining bright and devouring numerous orange and mango bars! Well, summers are back, but since everyone is stuck inside their homes, here are some indoor activities that will help you enjoy the season just like the good old times.
