Hi anjana.. It was just a day trip becoz, we had no clue abt the ashram. Anyways, we were told they have lots of free cottages available, free food and even for kids, they will keep busy by teaching our culture, fancy competition etc. while the parents are busy in attending Swamiji's lecture or any pooja. Anyways, go thro the site and make sure abt the activities; accordingly, pls plan. They might be having more things if it is a long weekend and also, not sure abt the cottage availability. So, it is better if you give a call or mail. And, abt sesame place, we are also planning to go during long weekend. Heard from my friend that finishing in a day is not possible as they have plenty of activities in land & water. But, we are keen only on land and hence, it will not be a problem. If you have any queries, pls do ask hoping that I can give you my idea or even others can share. Bye.
