Devil's Advocate

Yesteday had I had to play a mock role as BCC (Banagalore City Corporation) Commissioner in a panel discussion "Bangalore woos or woes" about the infrastructure problems bangalore is facing!. Had to face a volley of questions from fellow panelists, audience ! A very tough job though :-)
Was asking questions to myself that what can an individual do in this regard, few of things which I have started practicing mentioned in previous posts.

* Maintain lane discipline
* Use public transport system as far as possible, agree to the fact that it isnt that great either, but it is getting better in these years though.
* Avoid using autorishwas but for exceptional cases, Hopefully things should smoothen out once authorities come up with a rule that "no autos in bangalore central district"

Planning a trip to coorg during this weekend:-)

As promised.. ( a very long one though) posting my trekking snaps to bandaje Arbi- South Canara, Karnakata, India.

This place is near Dharmasthala/Ujire which may take 6 to 8 Hrs depending on mode of travel
Base Camp : Good Samaritan Narayan Gowda's house
Beware of : leeches during rainy season :-) when we went there was no sign of any animal there ;-)
Food: Better to carry along, Although you can depend on villagers to some extent
