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.

U for Udagamandalam Trip

Udagamandalam needs no introduction in India.It is also called as Ooty , a well-known hill station in the state of Tamilnadu.Anywhere you go in the place,there was some feel of Deja Vu.Why it be so,perhaps it is the place captured in number of movies those we have seen.Weather was so cool.Don't ask about greenery.Abundant all the way.

It was so fun and great experience while ascending to the upper part via vehicle.Atleast 36 curves to have crossed.There were plenty of facilities to roam around for a couple of days.Boating,trekking and awesome ambiance are at your comfort.

Apart from clicking some scenes, A video was also shot on the occasion,see here above.

Mysuru Trip and some Photos

Mysuru is considered as the cultural hub of Karnata state.And of course,who forgets Mysore sandal soap,Mysore oxen,Mysore bajji,Mysore pack sweet and so on.I happened to be in and around the city recently.So how can't we be idle without clicking some snaps,that too with involving with a photo blog.Sharing things like these make one happier.

The above in the picture is Jagmohan Palace.When we arrived there.There was a public function in full swing with people gathering.And there were many artifacts shops,textile shops and a painting exhibition consists of inside and outside artists of India.Silk is the buzzword about Mysuru.So everywhere we can see silk saree shops along with other garments.

Chamarajendra Zoological park was one that attracts all walks of visitors.Plastic was strictly prohibited.Some voluntary orgs were helping by providing paper bags.Children and elderly people were looking all rejoice in the presence of wild birds and animals.Greenery  was abundant in the park and spacious too.Mysuru people and local bodies were well aware of green atmosphere.It is evident all across the city.

I think these were of ostrich kind.Taking rest at their comfort.

Wild buffaloes were seen in group.

Exotic birds perching on stands in lane.

A Quaint Building

This old construction in a new avatar with paintings.Built in the time of Britishers rule in India.Location is called Bhadrachalam and which served as Division Revenue office.Mostly used rock cuts in walls and spacious enough for people attendance for various works.High roof,windows and arch cut shape along with greenery made it as something beautiful and unique.

Recalled older days with the quaint construction.Still, sturdy enough coping with time.Hope you enjoyed the site.

A Song for destitutes

Sasi Sri Koti is a quite known singer.Be it devotional,patriotic,folk or any other in nature get filled with soul without any effort.Right from my college days , I have been used to listen her songs penned by several literary and musical giants like Annamacharya,Tyagaraja and Purandaradasa etc.,She herself authored many songs apart from her prime love music.On some occasions,wanted her to give an interview but which never get materialized so far,  perhaps due to her modesty to speak out her achievements.

As far as my knowledge is concerned,her rendition is a household familiar through Radio,T.V. and stage performance.And she did her Ph.D in music from Kakatiya University.Imparting lessons in music as a faculty.Recently,the video presented here reached me through a swap from Whatsap and intrigued myself to post it in youtube for you all.

The people unfortunate by fate were there in the group of listeners and hope you understand the condition of them in a home.Some bhajan must have been going on and affinity for singing evidently seen among the people.A heartwarming sight in brief.I wish I was there to appreciate her.

Our World Tuesday

Night has its own beauty and when lighting pierces through it ,certain combination come out with showing things that were not to be seen till then.This picture was taken when I visited a village, Charla.Night has fallen and street lights were on,hardly any activity there , obsessed to have the moment of serenity.
