W For Way ahead

Roads and trees are common in every village but the way they exist in their own pattern of good looking a bit vary from place to place.Here in this picture,we are seeing a straight way in Charla, a picturesque village nearby Bhadrachalam,where recently a children's fare had taken place in a school located there.The way here is seen  leading to other villages like Mogallapalli etc.,also,huge banyan trees at the wayside will be bustling with the sounds of different birds when it gets late evening.

ABC Wednesday

K for Karnataka state. Here I am giving you two photos clicked at the place of  Kudala, the confluence of three rivers.In fact Kaveri mixed with two tributaries at this pilgrim place called Bhagamandala.Nearer to Talakaveri, a well known tourist place in Karnataka state.It was at the time of past evening,so very few people were seen here and the ambiance was very nice with lush green atmosphere.

 Catch up this board while returning from Talakaveri.This was a hotel where we have taken meals,abundant facilities were there for every kind of tourists.Great experience to be rounding in the woods of Coorg area.That's what I feel about it without second thought.

H for Hut.The hut we are seeing here is clicked at the botanical gardens located at Ooty or Udagamandalam.The structure installed here as the model of Toda tribals' residing place.A Thatched hut built in its own style.Some forest products were being sold there along with typical textiles..  

In the second pic,straight shot surrounded by visitors.Botanical gardens is full of colossal trees,plants and flowers taken from different places.The place is familiar for movie goers before being there since the locations were immensely shot in the pictures irrespective of languages.As Ooty is on high altitude , weather makes one happier with lush green ambiance.

Towering trees give us a feel of being in a forest.Downward,sprawling lawn along with flower plantation.Visitors seemed to be from many parts of the country.Age gets immaterial in the lap of nature.

This is from another view.

Our World Tuesday

Mysore palace needs no introduction.Here it is for you through my lenses.So regal in every aspect but the branches of tree and other greenery  over there gave extra beauty,if you can view it carefully.In fact,It was not planned and sometimes things would go like that.  

At the entrance point, there was a vendor selling old coins and toy cycles.Could be useful for philatelists.Wish there were more of Mysore kingdom.Cycles looked the replicas of actual ones and the size doesn't matter sometimes.

A Media person was speaking to visitors.No doubt NDTV.Perhaps they were  making comments on Palace related issues.No camera man was in the frame since  the child overlapped the view all of a sudden.

Chamundi Hills Temple

Goddess Chamundeswari is the presiding deity at the Chamundi hills and  the temple is 13 k.m. away from Mysore,Karnataka.That day,when we visited the place was  witnessed by  large turn out of   pilgrims.Outside the temple,there were many vendors selling their products.

Demon like statue  here in the picture is called Mahisasura.It looked so  prominent soon after we afoot in the  premises  of the temple.The hill is 3,489 feet above the sea level.With lots of  vehicles over there ,  the place  seemed busy all the days.mysore  kings patronized the temple  in a  great  way.
This is the part of glimpses during the uphill journey.Cool breeze and eye feasting lush green take take us to most happy state.Pilgrims were seemingly from many states.

Sri Rangapatna and some glimpses

Sri Rangapatna  ,the renowned  historical  and religious place  located nearby Mysore,say 15 k.m. from there.The temple of Sri Ranganadha here is one of the most important  landmarks  for Sri Vaishnava tradition.The  temple was built in 9th century and renovated in the time of Hoyasala and Vijayangara  regimes.River Kaveri is synonymous with the place.

(Temple street,Sri Rangapatna) 

There were many shops selling various  articles.See the varieties for yourself.Hats,statues,house hold utilities and others.There were several small scale industries around the place.

At Kuruva Island

This stream and  the shore with a massive tree of roots were shot at Kuruva Island  of Kerala.Children  were  looking  at something.There  was  an exciting ride on raft to reach it and  which was  only a small area  of spacious island.Stunning  with splendid  greenery and  water  flowing  around where  people used to  hang out.Holidays were  crowded  with  people.Remaining days  were serene.

Our World Tuesday

With springing  a surprise, coming  here with the photo of a mango tree not only that with its fruits scattering on the ground.It was also seemed to be the place  for unused  or repairable furniture.Have been spent around the place for a vacation.No takers were there.The  fruits kept like that in  bizarre order all the days.Sometimes  rotten,sometimes afresh,no one cares to eat the mangoes ..why..?

It was an office backyard at Mysore.Even sweepers were there to clean but none initiates to touch them.Good discipline however.Birds used to  splash  the remains of the fruits.A deliberate plan for non-humans.?

Kuruva Island : Kerala

I was in Mysore on the purpose of attending a work shop,in the last month.After having seen a few important land marks , headed towards Wayanad district to see some less known or explored places.Happened to be at Sultan bathery of Kerala to move further to see Kuruva Island.In fact,I was not aware of this place until a friend suggested it as a worth seeing nature's gift.We have taken a taxi from Sultan bathery,which is a municipality in Wayanad district.Almost a two hour drive from there.

The Island was fully covered with greenery.And there were bamboo rafts to cross the water body to reach the Island.The ride over there was fun along with fellow visitors.With the help of the rope,the raft kept moving slowly on the surface of the water.In Island,there was plenty of forest land and flowing streams.Hope you enjoy the video captured for you all.
