“Wealth is like sea-water; the more we drink, the thirstier we become; and the same is true of fame.”
~ Arthur Schopenhauer

What is that life worth which doesn’t have dreams to chase? What good is your job of it puts your learning as stake? When you dare to cross the limits and believe in yourself and your goals — that’s when you define ‘victory’. It doesn’t matter if it takes 10 days or 10 years. Every invention requires an era of labor and sweat which ultimately results in another era of fame and success!
With such aspirations and electrifying spirits, Mr. Harshul Gupta and Mr. Raunak Agarhari have set the foundations to Lucknow’s emerging beverage centre, the Baatla House.

Baatla House

Mr. Harshul Gupta, a bright chemical engineer of his time quit his job to pour his brilliance into creation of healthy, robust and non-intoxicant drinks, a mere sip of which display the skills he has mastered. Mr. Raunak Agrahari, a former civil engineer quit his job too to establish an effectual, luscious beverage point.

Let us take a dig into some of their masterpieces, which not only look deliciously sexy but also increase our cravings upto zenith.

1. Cafe Latte

Cafe Latte

Warning! Your tongue is about to taste the most seductive avatar of milk fused coffee. Carefully crafted with selected seeds. Life is good!

2. Tropical Himalayan Cold Coffee

Enough said, enough tread. Think cold coffee, drink cold coffee.

Milk, nuts, nutella and shaking ’em all. Anything left?

4. Iced Chai Mojito

Chai chai everywhere,
Not a drop to waste.

What else left to taste?
Sip, gulp, DAMN!

5. Cuban Virgin Mojito

Refreshing…Check!
Immersive…Check!
Tanginess…Check!
Bravo you’ve just made a darling Mojito!

It rains hardest on those who deserve the sunshine. Their former establishment “eatatos” did not bid well which only worked to enhance their new startup. We first came across their stall at an event few months back. The owners looked familiar, and so the conversation began. We went anonymously to their outlet, gathered details about their junction, the things they served, the staff and the owners and we were not let down.

If you are a keen drinker, it is entirely possible that you’ll find a substantial volume of satisfaction in the beverages you pound. The Baatla House, centered in Indra Nagar, Lucknow, aims at quenching thirst and drowning you into a barrel fondness. Give them your time and they’ll return you with memories.
Visit. Review. Cherish.

Imagine this view — early morning hours, clouds skylarking golden sun rays, birds welcoming you with melodious songs as you walk among blooming mango trees. All your troubles lose importance when you stand under orchard trees. When the soaking rains suddenly stop, your feet sink deep into the soil. The smell of fresh mango spring up something that is worth more than money.

Doesn’t it remind you the taste of mango?

To heighten your mirth and solace, UP Mango Festival has organized one such rendezvous, the Orchard Visit. Before traversing the mango lanes, let us see what a Mango Fest actually is!

About UP Mango Fest –

mango-festival-wordhazard
In the present time, more than 1,360 varieties of mangoes are available worldwide, out of which more than 1,000 are found in India. The factual diversity ranges from different various breeds to various sizes (from the size of a grape to a weight over 2.5 kg). This wide spectrum is a prime attraction for people from all over the world. Hence, UP Mango Fest aims at providing recognition to the King of Fruits by the means of an annual exhibition.

Objectives of Mango Fest –

mango2-wordhazard
Are you aware of the origin of Mango? Well, it is considered as a native crop to Indian Subcontinent, cultivated for over 4,000 years! Hence, an essential part of this fest is to pay homage to Indian farmers for running the cultivation of this traditional crop. The next aim is providing easy access to various breeds of mango and associated products at user-friendly prices. This is a major catch in the event where people taste selectively handpicked fresh farm-fruits. Another purpose to organize this event is to promote & patronize mango-growers to advance technologically to increase their production and product quality. Extracting maximum returns from the product, making provisions for sales of secondary sellers, tapping domestic and international markets and ultimately contributing to the national economy all circle the target of Mango Fest.

Pioneers of UP Mango Fest –

jyotsana-wordhazard-newThe first UP Mango Festival was held in 2013 as a motivational event to promote the regional breeds and their cultivators, to extend support to farmers and women in agriculture. It has been adopted as an annual fest ever since.

The ‘Orchard Visit’ had been held in Madhav Udyaan, Malihabaad until last year. In 2018, it will be organized in the Abbasi mango orchard which belongs to Shahid Abbasi to cover more orchards in the state.
