Nanjangud Temple

Nanjangud temple is about 23 Km from Mysore, takes about 45 mins to reach from Mysore.The temple is on the banks of river Kapila. Road is OK, very dusty. You come across 3 lakes while going from Mysore to Nanjangud. Seems like they are not maintained by anybody but even then their scenic beauty makes people passing by to stop and watch them.

Abbi\ Abbe Falls......

Children's Day i.e 14th November, had been to unplanned trip to abbi falls. It's around 120 Kms from Mysore. Let me give the description along with pictures.....

When out of Mysore it was 8 in the morning, till Hunsur road is superb but then its really worst. From Hunsur till madikari the road is in the same condition the scenic beauty along the roadside is awesome....

This was taken on the way to Madikeri, after crossing Virajpet. It's some garden could not see the name but green grass is spread all around...looks very beautiful.
Falls is nearly 10kms from Madikeri.....after reaching we need to walk a bit to reach the falls, you can hear the sound of water falling....

This one is taken before entering the hanging bridge.

The hanging bridge.

These pic's are taken from the hanging bridge

It would be fun if they had allowed to get down and play in water but its strictly restricted to get down. A police man is there to make sure that nobody gets down.

It's me on the hanging bridge.

Water from the falls flowing towards its destination.

It was 8 in the night when back in Mysore. Journey was too tiring due to the bad roads but the falls was worth it.

Fear Of Crossing Road

Some people get panic while crossing road. Yesterday in the bus which i was getting back to home there was a aunty, she might be around 35. She got down the bus at hosur stop where I get down and I was just waiting for the bus to move so that I can cross but that aunty who was standing beside me started telling we will cross off come so I went with her and we crossed, till we cross she was holding my hand. She was full of fear to cross road. She felt relief after crossing.

I still remember, one of my collage friend named veena, her hands would shiver and sweat every time while crossing road. I was surprised knowing this.

One of me colleague Haseena doesn't cross the road even if the vehicles are 1Km far. She waits for them to pass then crosses.
I think all such people need to be taken to TV show Raaz pechle janam ka (there might be some pechle janam ka reason behind fear). That was just a joke. Fear of crossing the road is a phobia and it's called as Agyrophobia.

How DOCOMO changed to DOTCOM

This indecent happened last Saturday while I was returning to home. Luckily I had got seat to sit and tow uncles were sitting in seats back of mine. By listening their talks it seemed they were friends.

In Hubli, now a days all the Ad boards are full of Tata DOCOMO. So one of the uncle saw it and asked what is this docomo to the other so the other uncle said "yes, everywhere docomo only, he had no idea what it is. By this it was clear that both also had no idea what docomo is. Then the uncle who had asked what is docomo said oh its dotcom(.com), its related to computers. the other
uncle also said yes yes.

It was fun to listen to there talks but its Ad agencies responsibility to create Ad's which even normal people can understand other wise it can't reach the normal people and most of the people are left with half knowledge and thus loosing most of their costumers.

This is how DOCOMO changed to DOTCOM.

Hurrrry...It's Rainy season

It's rainy season now. All types of poojas and havans were done by almost all state governments as mansoon did not arrive at the expected time. Lastly it arrived at the end of June and is still showing its presence.

I do love a lot the smell of mud when it rains for the first time in the year. Once so happened that, when I was out of the office at evening it was raining very heavily myself and all my colleagues stood out seeing rain and hesitating to go in that rain but I was excited to go in rain so me and one of my friend went in that really heavy rain. We went talking and singing. On the way we saw many people standing under some shelter to protect themselves from rain but we both were totally enjoying the rain. It was one of my unforgettable experience.

Now as monsoon has started its green everywhere you see and everybody in their warm cloths and umbrella. Our Unkal lake is full and its beauty is at top with the statue of Swami Vivekananda in the center of the lake. Rainy season is very cool and brings out something new and beauty everywhere making my daily journey still more interesting.
