Almost half of my expedition has been completed, and we are on the move to the next place of recreation. Ahmedabad has always been a versatile city, full of amusement, enjoyment, and learning and the most importantly, an inspirational recreation zone. My children were always my priority throughout my journey. The complete plan was framed keeping in mind, their field of interest, their rejoicing mood and of course an induced sense of learning while travelling. As can be clearly noticed in all the previous blogs, that I had been a bit selfish while making a choice of the places to visit. My tempting and craving love for nature and learning literature has completely engrossed me to visit them. But then it was time for the kids. So the next place of excitement was on the demands of my siblings, i.e., Science city Ahmedabad. As the name itself resembles the exploring of science, the place is actually worth visiting.

An ambitious initiation taken by government of Gujarat to construct science city, on the land of Ahmedabad has undoubtedly, triggered the mind of the tourists as well as the local habitants with a wide knowledge of science and imaginations. It was actually a land of fantasies for my kids, about which they had read only in the books and other articles. With an aid of experiential and entertaining wisdom, the Science City is an accomplished structure situated off the Sarkhej Gandhinagar Highway. The areas of enthusiasm like, musical dancing fountain, 3D IMAX theatre, simulation and the energy park were indeed the places of having a gala time for me and my family. As far as my sense of learning is concerned, the investments incurred for this splendid and informative place of attraction holds a perfect blend of ecological awareness along with the proper use of science.
This part of our travelling to Science city in Ahmedabad has actually inculcated us with an innovative form of knowledge with some activity corners, live demonstration, laboratories and wide displays. With a glimpse into the galaxy of development and technology, I decided to head towards my next designated spot, Adlaj Vav Ahmedabad. The sun struggling to settle down, calm and moist air around my face, and a pleasing environment, with no trace of tiredness, I was still afresh and hence, geared up to visit the next place.

The new morning in Ranchi was very relaxing. The full night’s rest did wonders to our system and we were back in full form to enjoy the day’s activities. This day, I spent some of the morning to explore the rest of the hotel and was very satisfied by the standard of services that the hotel offered. Since we had set a certain time for the departure for the sightseeing, I had to cut short my tour and we all got ready in time to go to the Ranchi Science Centre. Managed by the Jharkhand Council on Science and Technology, the building is a storehouse of information and knowledge on science.

The rental car took us to the Centre. It seemed like an ordinary building at first with only a couple of stories but from the moment we entered the premise and till the moment we bade it farewell, the place continued to amaze us with its various exhibits. The Centre is divided into three sections – the Resources of Jharkhand, a section called Fun Science and the last one – How Things Work. Since the entire day was at our disposal, we patiently viewed each and every exhibit in the three sections very minutely and carefully.
