A Cool Morning with Birds

As part of the Photography Workshop conducted by Sudhir Shivaram went to Hebbal lake for a shoot out on this Sunday morning. Posting here few of the best ones I was able to manage :-)

I am yet to figure out names of these birds :-)

Well this time it was a casual or I must say a relaxing trip to Coorg along with the family with the sole aim of unwinding from the hectic life :-). The first stop was @ Nanjanagud, 20 Kms from Mysore, famous for Nanjundeshwara temple. As we managed to reach the temple pretty early during the day, the magnificent view of the main gopura basking in the morning sun caught my attention.I realizing now that I must have paid little more attention to avoid the lamp post on the left hand side :(.

Then, what caught my attention was these ladies who were selling some pooja items. What made my curious were these smoke pots which were fuming smoke. Probably next time, I should checkout the significance of these fuming pots :-)

The Next stop was Bylakuppe, one of the largest Tibetian settlements in India and home to Namdroling Monastery. This is my second visit to this wonderful land of Tibet @ the heart of Karnataka. You have everything from shining gold structures, the fluttering flags of various colors, rhythmic drum beats with the background melody of pipes but for the snow capped peaks of Himalayas.

Finally we reached the destination!!! Though on the expensive side, the CLUB Mahindra resort @ Coorg is one of the excellent facilities I have visited so far. Be it the ambience, surroundings, the landscape, accommodation, be it anything, this place scores. After spending two fun filled and relaxing days we headed back to Bangalore. On our way back we had good time @ Cauvery Nisargadhama near Kushala Nagara

Taare Zameen Par

As part of ESR (Employee Social Responsibility) initiative, recently I had an opportunity to spend a day out with kids from MADILU orphanage. As part of the program we took kids to picnic around Cubbon Park.

The day started as we left from our office to the MADILU orphanage at HSR Layout. Dressed in their uniforms, we really had a warm welcome from kids. This orphanage is home to kids between to 4~16 years who are deprived of their parent/s. As we embarked on our journey through busy Bangalore streets, kids kept humming various SHOLKAS, RHYMES in unison. I must say that they had all kinds of songs stored up their sleeve…a Sholka or a Bhajan or a Rhyme…… they had every thing.

The first stop was Nehru planetarium where in there was a show about our SOLAR system, little ones dozed off while their seniors watched the show. After having our lunch we headed towards Bala Bhavan (inside cubbon park) for a toy train ride. This was the most exciting part of the outing. All of them were really excited once they saw the toy train whistling around. It was really fun filled ride for the little ones as they watched the train chug along the Cubbon Park. Finally there were few games and then it was time to say bye.

Ooops.. Forgot to add...

Happy Third Anniversary my Dear blog..:-)
