If you really wanna do .... you'll find a way to....



I learnt this hard way....

Some jobs never get done!...reasons for not doing them present themselves in series, one by one, relentlessly...
Then there are jobs, which get done somehow!

Why does this happen?

My Tryst with Western Ghats : The charming Charmadi

Charmadi Ghats connecting South Canara district to Chikmagalur is a stretch of winding hilly  road between Ujire and Moodigere.

It takes around 45 minutes to cross this hilly terrain, the roads are narrow and the slopes are steep. But travel in this stretch of ghats is nothing short of a divine experience.

The majestic steep densely vegetated mountains are a fest to eye. The magnificent forms with gigantic proportions are a treat to watch.

There are quite a few tricky viewing spot along the Charamady where you can park your vehicle and steep yourself into uncommon beauty of the towering hills.

One can not imagine the efforts and hardships undergone in constructing a road in such a tricky terrain. That too in the days of under developed technology. However, the road as a single non green stretch, safe from animals of the jungle presents itself as a safe haven and a great strip of viewing locations.

Majesty of the mountains, the lust of the greenery and milky white clouds of mist that embrace the peaks in the mornings and sometimes in the evening are a feast to savor.

You are bound to leave Charmadi feeling enriched and oxygenated.

Avoid nights as  neither you can watch any scenery and the sticky mist can really cause crisis to your  driving visibility.

Ananau - Peruvian Song that stole my heart

                         ANANAU - ALBORADA PERU

During my tour of Europe, walking on the streets of Brussels (Belgium) I was searching for a "La magasin de la Photo appareil"  means Camera shop.

From a distance a vibrant tune of music caught my ears. It was fascinating music full of life's rhythm.

That music was so captivating that I just forgot about the camera shop and went madly searching for the source of the music.
After a minutes’ walk I reached a grand square, where a burly, feather clad south American folk singer was playing this song and he and his assistant were making music with huge bamboo pipes.

Later I came to know that these musicians were from south American country of "Peru" and the music was created by a group called  "Albodara" who were a native Peruvian group who have made revolutionary innovations in Peruvian music, without losing its native Indian and Andean essence.

The music hasn't ever ceased to play in my heart, especially the tune of the flute.
