Are you dying of boredom these days? Staring at the clock waiting for time to pass, wondering when you get to go outside again? We’ve got your back. Stay safe indoors and keep yourself busy with these awesome DESi do-it-yourself ideas you can make in 5 minutes:
In these trying times, the biggest saviors for those of us sitting at home have proved to be platforms like Netflix and Amazon Prime. If you’re missing going out and watching movies with your loved ones, here’s a solution for you. Why invest in an expensive projector for a movie night (which you anyway can’t get right now), when you can easily make one on your own?
All it takes is your phone, a shoebox, and that magnifying glass you’ve got lying around somewhere from your childhood. Alternatively, just use a plain ol’ light bulb.
This lockdown is a great time to try your regularly washed or sanitized hands at new things - like art! Get down and dirty with those paints. And if, like us, you can’t paint better than a five-year-old, make gorgeous designs with DIY eraser stamps. Simply carve an eraser of any size using a knife, dunk it in paint, and you’re ready to go.
Admit it - the days are blending into each other. We don’t know when Wednesday ends and Thursday starts. But combat this business of forgetting with your own super cute dry erase board. All you need for this project is a photo frame and some paper or fabric you’d like to use as a backdrop. Pop your paper in and voila! Your board is ready to go.
You can save a lot of money on expensive pots and planters, and at the same time make yourself busy (only for a few minutes, we promise) with this next DIY craft. All you need is some cardboard, faux metal or plastic container, copper contact paper and, goes without saying, a plant.
Alternatively, there are like 35 other ways to do this. Get creative!
Soap and sanitizer are in plenty use now. Why not make cleaning your hands a little more fun? Using a glass jar, a screw (or anything you can make a hole with) and a soap pump from any plastic soap/sanitizer dispenser, you can make your own dispenser in less than 5 minutes!
There are a hundred things you can do with a plain white tee, but we’ll pick our favourite DIY project. A plain tee becomes exponentially better with a cute pocket. Here’s how you can change a simple t-shirt in a few easy steps. All you’ll need is some cute fabric of your choice, scissors, t-shirt, pins, and very basic sewing skills.
Okay, this may be by far the nerdiest idea we’ve had yet. But nonetheless, it’s bound to make your life easier! With a few minutes of your life and a little nail polish, you can finally bid farewell to the days of fumbling over your keys, trying to find the right one.
Liked these projects? Pick one, have fun, and stay safe indoors!
The good ol’ School days. You know what made them extra special? Our best friend.
Remember how we used to make elaborate plans with our best friend for the day ahead — whether s/he was coming to school, for picnics, group presentations, home study sessions (that eventually turned out to be a party). And… hiding the homework from the teacher if one of us hadn’t done the work, and standing outside the class with our hands up for punishment… You both were inseparable.

How does GO DESi ensure quality parameters at the Micro Units?
GO DESi not only undertakes the effort to find the lost recipes in the farmlands and rural kitchens but also standardizes these units and their products, paving a way for them to reach the urban markets.
We identify the Micro unit(s) and inspected them for quality & hygiene standards. Once on-boarded, these micro units are standardized as per GO DESi standards to make sure they meet all the statutory requirements and quality parameters. A quality controller at unit monitors the workers and the manufacturing process on a daily basis and ensures that only the best of products go out in the market.

How are GO DESi products different from other snacks available in the market?
We at GO DESi, live by the principle of Eat good, Do Good.
All GO DESi products are made from natural ingredients, are minimally processed, are preservative free, and have no added flavors or colors. Since our products are manufactured as close to the farm as possible, it helps preserve the authentic local flavors & formats tastes of the products.
