New Year 2015 at Bangalore

We spent our New Year’s Day at Bangalore this time. I am just penning a few thoughts on the year gone by and also jotting down a quick travelogue. There was not too much of travel as compared to our previous trip. Perhaps because we intended this to be a nice little break than a vacation of some sort.

It’s the end of another year and as is my tradition for past several years it is time to write a yearly write up. But then again, I was traveling around on new year’s eve and so wished to write a travelogue as well. Why not just club these together?

A travelogue of our trip to Coorg

Trip to Kerala

Here’s a travelogue of our recent trip to Kerala. Rather than turning out to be the relaxed vacation which I had in mind it turned to be hectic in every sense of the word!

Down the years when I travel back the memory lane I’ll still look back at our “hectic” five day trip to Thrissur not with apathy or anguish, as can be expected from an extraordinarily tiring and gruesome trip, but rather with amazement at the abundance of nature that I got to see in so many varied forms.

Mahabalipuram

A write up plus a very small collection of pictures of Mahabalipuram.

Mahabalipuram (or Mamallapuram) is a place of cultural significance. Built from barren stones to some of the most beautiful stone sculptures, during the great Pallava era, the marvelous statues still stand testimony to the rich taste of art that persisted in India during those ancient times.

Plain Dosa

A simple story to encourage all those simple and down to earth values.

Ok. This one was return in a rather peaceful state of mind. I wanted to write a story which is absolutely bland to the senses but still has some small message to convey. If you are looking for some thrilling/ action filled story, you better look elsewhere. This one is going to be as simple as a “Plain Dosa”…
