Mom’s dabba. The ones your friends used to eat up coz it was so yummy! Time to take her on a weekend at Yangsum Heritage Farm that serves the most insane local cuisine!

Anurag: This place in Namchi serves food made from organic vegetables from the farms. And this is authentic Sikkimese cuisine momos, thupka, etc.

Arya: Manager (Mr. Manish) is very hospitable. Food is very good. Don't miss to stay. Kanchenjunga is clear from the room window.

Want to give mom the best, right?

She did everything from stitching up buttons that fell off, fixing your hair before a party, gently shampooing you without getting it in your eyes. It’s time to give back. Take mom on a perfect spa vacation at Moksha Himalaya Spa Resort, Parwanoo.

Sanjay Sivadas: A breathtaking hideaway tucked in the lap of nature, some 50 kilometers from Trivandrum. The tranquil settings of a 1000 acre rubber plantation inside, which 'Anantya' is situated, made it possible for me to completely immerse myself . While there, I also surrendered myself to the healing powers of Ayurveda at their in-house spa. The facilities include a spa, multi-cuisine restaurant, a swimming pool and a bar.

Remember how she wrapped your textbooks in brown paper and packed your bag and took you to school? Pack her bags for a change - and take her on a road trip filled with yummy stop offs! Put the windows down play her favourite songs, let the wind blow in her hair and drive down to the most awesome weekend getaway with a difference!

Priyam Goyal: We just decided to take a road trip to Pondicherry. We started our journey at 6 30 in the morning from Hosur Road Bangalore. We took the NH-66. The roads are pretty good. There was a snitch at Krishnagiri where there was construction going on the highway. That apart the roads are six lane highways with smooth flowing traffic. The route is peppered with highway dhabas and tea stalls. There are some prominent hotels en-route. You can make a pit stop at Sarovar Portico near Hosur or McDonalds near Krishnagiri.

And while here, spend a lazy day in the colonial style quaint property of Palais de Mahe.

Deepa Borkar: Their farm has ducks, goats and cows. Try your hand at milking cows. They helped us understand and took us through the cheese making procedure. Their breakfast that served homemade marmalade and cheese was amazing.
