For those high on the creative quotient, there’s always a struggle to find your focus in cities that are bustling with people, traffic and so on. At times all that an artist needs is a calm place to process his/her thoughts and come up with fresh ideas.
India is home to several such places where writers can relax and have a good time in the company of quiet nature.
There are several writer’s retreats hosted in the country around the year and you can book yourself a lovely cottage far away to make the most of your time.
Here’s looking at some of the popular writer’s retreats in India:
