          mon chasha offers a unique experience of an authentic rural stay. just about 150 kms from kolkata, it is tucked away in a little, almost non-descript village, Paushi, in East Midnapore district. surrounded by green all around,it is based on the concept of eco-tourism linked to sustainable development. the location of this beautiful haven is superb,with four tastefully decorated thatched cottages (offering, needless to say, all urban amenities except a t v set) and a river flowing by just behind.the initiative by and sheer grit of a remarkable couple Nilanjan and Debjani have resulted in transforming a slice of the Bengal countryside into a nature lover's cherished destination.the gastronome has a wide variety of delicious rural fare to choose from... an authentic bengali platter beginning with the bitter and rounded off with the sweet. one can have a first-hand knowledge of rural activities such as pottery, making cane articles, clay models, organic cultivation of home-grown vegetables ,and a lot more.they have taken great pains to revive certain fast disappearing village craft like "goyna bori".it is a pleasure to see how they have tried to showcase local artistes in the field of music, literature, painting, etc.the hospitality and warmth of Nilanjan and Debjani are reason enough to go back to mon chasha. something which struck me was a very noble endeavour of funding an orphanage with the income generated from mon chasha ...a commendable venture, indeed! the overall ambience with its undisturbed peace and tranquillity is balm for our jaded souls...it is,in the words of Tagore, the comfort for the mind and peace for the soul.a short sojourn in this rural home is sure to work wonders for us, hapless city-dwellers. the pristine charm of mon chasha will beckon one over and over again!

          A creative, energetic and a vibrant couple has gifted us a heaven to visit. Near five star comfort , homely hospitality & Bengali Cuisine is very much available and is of highest quality. There is greenery all around and it gives a perfect experience of eco tourism and rural Bengal. There is no bar, disco theque or a pool table!!! But there is a AV room to view old CDs of movie which you can carry and play, you can watch your marriage CD or anything of your choice. Something which is extremely relaxing and refreshing. If you are willing to do fishing that is also available in this scenic beauty. Monchasa has also promoted farming all around and for Kids it is a "WOW". In the evening you can visit the nearby orphanage and spend time with kids. In late evein you can see local artists entertaining you and if you too have the skills you can also perform.
          On the whole it gives us all what we miss in a busy city life.

          Mon Chasha is a place which has touched my heart for a number of reasons. We went with our friends and children way back in March 2012. First and foremost Nilanjan da and Debjanidi make most of the magic. I haven't seen such pure soul, such a warm hospitality even in the best of hotels. They will go all out of their way to make your stay comfortable and make you feel you are most important to them. Set amidst rural bengal this place makes you feel the clear sky , the small rivulet flowing by the cottage, the frest air and the pesticide free food. Everything is natural out there and one can enjoy fishing, playing cricket/ football, counting stars, having telebhaja with hot tea or tasting a number of unknown fish varieties of bengal. Food is great and the way they serve makes the difference. For children they had given us a number of toys and also went all the way to inflate a bath tub in the garden so that children can actually enjoy an open air shower. Rooms are huge with clean toilets and at night the weather becomes too cold. We went in hot summer months but at night we had to use quilts and even switched off the fans. Eyeing all details like use of eco friendly articles , making use of bio gas and using all locally available materials make it an absolute model place to care for our mother nature. Another important aspect is the Antyodyay Orphanage which is nearby and people can go and contribute for the poor children out there. The host's care for mother nature, for orphan children around us and to give you back the rural life makes your stay really different from other weekend destinations in and around kolkata. Except the road from Kalinganagar everything about this place is beautiful. I would definitely like to go back to Mon Chasha.

          We visited Monchasha during our Chrismas vacation in 2012. Monchasha is located at Paushi village in East Midnapur. We went to Monchasha in our car, a 3 hours trip from Kolkata.

          The place was very tranquil and green and a very peaceful place to spend a short vacation. The owners Mr. and Mrs. Basu formed Monchasha a year ago. Their warm hospitality immediately made us feel at home. During our 3 day vacation we saw potters wheel in action, tasted local delicacy goina bori and got to see quite a few local handicraft products. We saw different types of birds, it was a pure joy to walk around in the foggy mornings. We took many nice pictures of our son in the diffuse morning light.

          Our son had a great time playing with different types of toys in the kids’room. He liked the place so much he even wanted to tow one cottage back to Kolkata! The food was absolutely delicious there, they made vegetarian food specially for me, I being a vegetarian. I got to know from my husband that non-veg food were also very nice. Our son struck a friendship with a dog at Monchasha, and then we found ourselves making trips to Paushi Bazar several times for buying biscuits for the dog. The dog kept walking by our side wagging its tail while we were strolling through the village enjoying the calm countryside view.

          Everyone in the resort were so very nice. I picked up some nice recipes from the wonderful cook. We really want to go back to Monchasha again!
