mini golf

Had sheesha at minigolf again tonight. That place amazes me – it’s a park and a festival and a restaurant street and a fake lake and a rollerblading/paddling/somanyotherthings arcade, and a kid’s playarea and a deer habitat and ofcourse a minigolf course all rolled into one. It’s perfect, and it’s brilliant.

It’s suitable for anyone and everyone – from those who pay the 2 rupee entrance fee to just come lounge around on the long rolling lawns, or even jog around the tracks, to those who come there exclusively to play minigolf and then loll around on cane chairs and tables having sheesha or food. I love feeling like I’m part of some sprawling …festival, and can be as much a part of it as I want to be: it’s not overwhelmingly loud – the 80s madonna and 90s bryan adams music blaring at the minigolf course don’t reach the rollerblading rink, and the lawns are as peaceful as they could be if the messy congolomeration of lights and smoke emanating from the festival could be cut out of the picture altogether.

    I’d not been there more than once (know, it’s not that guyish type of place) but I find it very soothing and relaxing. Especially the walk on that calm track and sitting enjoying the atmosphere. Kinda reminds me of Islamabad. Never played minigolf (or gold itself for that matter) as it’s a tricky game for me. But I do believe that it would be hell of a fun. Yeah, and I like the music they play.

    Would be good if you’ve some pictures!
