The Black Beauty – 3

Continued from Part 1 and 2 . I brought myself to composure, and controlled my emotions. Maybe I was over thinking. It was possible that Leela and Nauheed were plainly visiting the ancient temple of Yellamma in Saundatti. However it was hard to believe that they were plainly visiting the shrine. Why would they do so? The ancient Devdasi system wherein young girls were dedicated to a life of sanctioned prostitution and their virginity was auctioned in the name of service to the goddess was banned in the 1980s. When I had read the history behind the whole concept I was

The Black Beauty – 2

Followed from Part 1. Nauheed touched my arm, and I was back to Bangalore. She said, “You didn’t answer anything I asked. You don’t remember me?” The innocence was still intact. I told her that it was impossible to forget her. I had drifted for a while to the city that never sleeps. I enquired about how she had reached Bangalore. She said, “I will tell you. Tell me why did you leave the city? You liked it a lot. What happened?” I smiled, and answered, “I found another job here.” She asked, “A better one? I came here for

The Black Beauty – 1

A misty morning in the monsoon, and I stepped out of my apartment to begin my daily commute to work. Becky, the dog, rested peacefully at the stairs bidding me goodbye with her poignant eyes. She looked more tired than usual or was she ill; I didn’t know. I stroked her black hair, and rubbed her forehead before leaving. The murk of the fog that morning shielded the greenery around – holding a silence that can move you. Taz, the dog, emerged from the murk with Aunty Daisy. I stopped by him for our morning love session, and then continued

A Fun Travel Experience to Wayanad – II

We skipped our lunch that day since we were more interested in visiting the various spots than eating. We left for Pukkoot Lake at around 4:00 PM. This place is around 15 Km from Kalpetta. Entry fee costed us Rs 10 /-. Boating closes at 5:00 PM. Since we reached at 5:10 Pm we could not go for boating. I wondered if these people were so punctual about the opening time as well. As ways it was no use grumbling so we took a leisure walk around the lake. The lake is surrounded with lush green dense forest. But it

A Fun Travel Experience to Wayanad – I

Just like our other trips, this one too was without any prior planning or booking. The fun of travelling to an unknown place without any booking or any information, is an experience in itself. It all started with us waking up early on a September morning (or rather late at night).  A quick check on the nearest destination, helped us to zero in on Wayanad District, in the north-east of Kerala, India, Wayanad is set lofty on the majestic Western Ghats with altitudes ranging from 700 to 2100 Meters above mean sea level. The natural scenic beauty of Wayanad and

Coorg – The Scotland of India – II

After spending hours looking at the waterfall, we continued on our way to Raja’s Seat . The entry fee of this park is Rs 5 per head. This is situated at the heart of the town itself. If legends are to be believed, then this is the spot from where the kings watched the sunsets with their consorts. It offers breathtaking view of towering hills, green valleys, studded with paddy fields. The most fascinating view is the road to Mangalore like a curved ribbon lying in the valley. The view of the sunset from this spot is really a one

Coorg – The Scotland of India – I

The day started on a low note with nothing much to do. But since it was the first day of a brand new year, we definitely were not going to let it be a boring one. Resources were few. We did not have plans for any trip and certainly no reservations were available for any resorts. But still we thought of giving it a last shot. Browsing though the list of various hotels at the various tourist destinations around Bangalore, we discovered that there were still a few hotels that could offer us accommodation. That was all that was required

Manchanabele Escapade – II

The water was very tempting but our research on the place restrained us from jumping right in. The lake has had had its share of a few accidents. The lake bed is supposed to have quick sand resulting in a few accidents. So we had to control our emotions and be content at just sitting by the lake and dipping our feet in the cold water. After spending a few hours lazing by the lake, posing for snaps and chit chatting we made our way back to Bangalore. But we did make up our mind to revisit this place soon…
