CAUVERY ,COORG AND MY CAMERA !!!!!

















I DON'T KNOW IF YOU HAVE NOTICED THE TIME ON THE POST...THIS POST WITH IT'S HEAVY DUTY IMAGERY HAS COST ME ...A NIGHT'S SLEEP....AND STILL NO SIGN OF ALIGNMENT.......
What makes an idyllic holiday.......
a tank full of petrol(i don't want to ever call it GAS !!),the company of the most jovial , gregarious ,and extremely travelled, 'R' family(used for reasons of privacy),a low down on every village and landmark,the best eating joints on the way,and no idea of what we were to encounter....!!!!!


COORG...AKA....MADIKERI....AKA.......KODAGU.....
(picture 1)
WHERE THE SAL WORE PEPPERY PYJAMAS...(oh damn!!not sure if they are visible...how many times have i told mohan to buy me a decent camera....at such times he becomes a good husband.....conveniently deaf !!)
and coffee grew like wild grass....the weather was whisky......yes whisky....coz according to local gup...it's risky to order anything but whisky....coz they take ages to fetch

FROM SHIVANSAMUNDRAM(120 kms from Bangalore) to DUBARE (banks of the cauvery....252 kms)

The cauvery behaved ,displayed all the characteristics of a typical woman...... resplendent in her many moods.......furious and roaring,breathtakingly beautiful,pregnant with the monsoons,as it cascaded down ,
at the shivansamudram falls.....(PICTURE 4)
(picture 3)
pouring and roaring and frothy and milky and spraying us with misty waters,as we watched it from a rickety bridge at abbey falls....(i mumbled a prayer,as i stepped on)

(picture 2)
seductive , slow and tranquil on the surface,yet deep and dangerous inside.....at the dubare forest reserve.....
TO BE CONTINUED..........
