Everything You Need to Know About the Bhadaas Cafe
'Bhadaas' in Hindi means anger and frustration. Synonymous to its name, Bhadaas Cafe is India's first anger management cafe that allows you to release your anger and feelings that can be choking you in a room where no one can see or hear you. You can be yourself without worrying about what others will say. You are free to destroy the things around you or shout at the top of your lungs. The cafe has several rooms where you can destroy and smash things lying around including glasses, tables, bottles and even computers and televisions after paying a nominal fee! There is a vacuum room where you can scream, abuse and say whatever you want to. There is also a counselor and psychologist available at the cafe who can help you overcome your feelings. The cafe is equipped with more sections that allow you to relax and indulge in different activities while you enjoy some delicious snacks.
Situated in Chandra Nagar in Indore, Bhadaas cafe has started a new trend. In just month's time, it has witnessed around 1027 customers and all of them are believed to have experienced positive results.
We spoke to Bhadaas Cafe's owner Atul Malikram to know how he came about this unique idea. "The youth has to deal with a lot of pressures, be it in their personal or professional life. There is so much anger in them, so much to express which they cannot for some reason. We give such people the space to release their anger that is being accumulated inside them. You can scream, hurl abuses, cry and eliminate all ill-thoughts running in your mind and walk out relieved and smiling. We have 12 sections for different activities that include a library, counselling room, psychologist's room, 3 different rooms for venting out your anger and so much more."
What does it have for foodies?
After the whole process, once you feel calm and relaxed, you are served delicious finger foods like cheese nuggets, potato bites, French fries, Haryali bites, cheese corn nuggets and beverages including freshly made juices, tea and coffee. Mr. Malikram tells us, "We are yet to launch full meals and we're planning to keep organic food. Our aim is to help you detox your body along with calming your mind." Bhadaas cafe also promotes digital detox and so, all the technological devices with the customer are confiscated by the cafe till the time they are there.
Plans of expansion
According to Mr. Malikram, "We are aiming at launching 49 branches of the cafe across India by the end of December 2018. Bhadaas Cafe will be launched by the end of this year in Delhi. The expansion plan will soon reach Ahmedabad, Nasik, Chandigarh and Bhopal. Given the amazing response we've got in Indore, we've understood that a place like this is the need of the hour." It is great to see such places that cater to an individual's peace and help you chill out.
Have you ever been angry to an extent where you feel like smashing everything around you? Have you ever felt so frustrated that you feel like shouting and screaming and going wild? The constant pressures of our daily lives have made the new generation aggressive and impatient. We are constantly finding ways to release our pent-up energy, calm our mind and look for spaces that allow us to do so. We happened to have spotted a bizarre yet interesting cafe in Indore known as Bhadaas cafe. It is India's first anger management cafe that allows you to let go and vent out all anger to pacify yourself and guess what, no one will be judging you!
