Pearl Valley: Muthyalamaduvu

I was having another bad week and wanted to escape to some place far – far from people I knew and far from pseudo responsibilities. A  friend suggested we go to Muthyalamaduvu located 5kms from Anekal, Karnataka, which wasn’t very far from Bangalore but far enough – so the drive was going to be comparatively…

On The Edge: Restaurant Review

“In the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.” Part of Lewis Carroll’s quote comes to mind when I think of the things I missed. Many if onlys fill the journey of life. But a day spent in the company of a friend kind of puts that part at rest. Those moments are…

Noodles

I’m not a maggi-fan but I love eating noodles – not the Chinese style or the 2-minutes noodles, but the Tibetan, Thai and Korean.

ISKCON, Bengaluru: The Sanctorum Is Worth The Maze

To not plan is the best plan ever I and Nethra had a plan like a week and a half back. Movie at Orion Mall, visit to ISKCON and the best Frankie in Malleshwaram. But the plan was going for a toss outside my window, when I looked at the to-do-list for Wednesday. Forget ISKCON which…

Hampi: A Journey To a Forgotten Empire

The best trips are always the ones that are unplanned. This is one of those trips that totally happened out of the blue. The grihapravesh (house warming) of our new house was around the corner and I was in-charge of the full preparations, so going on a road trip to a place about 1300 kms from home…
