A contemporary take on childhood picnics, Bombay Picnics is a way for the community to be kinder, more generous, but also more indulgent. By drawing people together in a shared space, the event series creates a sense of familiarity that leads to greater inclusiveness - a rarity in a city where we're often socially isolated from our neighbors. And Rajat Mendhi is the brain and brawn behind it all.
Quickly assuming cult status among the city's suburbanites, Mendhi promises old fashioned games, good conversation with friends, and food that transports you to comforting places in our past.
We asked him to put together a playlist that encapsulates the spirit of his work: nostalgic, fun and for everyone.
