30 day challenge

Running a marathon is one of the many things which I have in bucket list. Long distance running got added to the list years ago and stayed there without any action. After plenty of procrastination, I managed to buy a pair of running shoes to start training. But I took an year to take out... Continue Reading →

Book: In the Hot Unconscious

There are books that get you hooked before you finish first couple of pages. And there are others that don't, but changes the first impression gradually if you keep reading. I place this book 'In the Hot Unconscious' by Charles Foster in the second category. I was reluctant to continue reading the book even before... Continue Reading →

Palace Estate Homestay

With most of my errands being unplanned and with friends, there was no much importance given to booking hotel rooms. Treks were spent looking up the sky, counting the stars and other biking or backpacking trips, it was crashing into a decent enough available hotel room. Last April when I planned to take my family... Continue Reading →

All for none

My association with NH48 (stretch between Bangalore and Kunigal) goes a long way back to early 90s. What used to be couple of bus rides from Kunigal to Bangalore during vacations turned in to weekly journeys from Bangalore to Kunigal when I moved to Bangalore for my studies. Watching those beautiful trees passing by and... Continue Reading →

Dasara at Home

Dasara (Navarathri) has just concluded and here is a small video of Dasara doll arrangements at house. More than Dasara it was known to us as 'Gombe habba' (ಗೊಂಬೆ ಹಬ್ಬ) back when we were kids. For all the ten days during the festival, 50 to 60% of our living room used to get occupied with... Continue Reading →

Back to reading spree

When I am travelling (read: while not driving/riding), I can do only two things - reading or sleeping. Continuous movement of the vehicle feels like a cradle to me. If I don't have a book in my hands, and even if scenery outside the window is breathtaking, I can keep my eyes open for few... Continue Reading →

ಮತ್ತೆ ಬಂದಿದೆ ಯುಗಾದಿ…

ಎರಡು ವರ್ಷದ ಹಿಂದೆ, ನಾನು ಮೊದಲ ಬಾರಿ ಯುಗಾದಿಯ ಸಡಗರ ತಪ್ಪಿಸಿಕೊಂಡಾಗ ಬರೆದಿದ್ದು. ಈ ವರ್ಷ ಕೂಡ ಅಂದಿನಂತೆ ಹಿಂದಿನ ದಿನಗಳ ಮೆಲುಕು ಹಾಕುತ್ತಲೆ ಹಬ್ಬದ ಅಚರಣೆ. ಯುಗ ಯುಗಾದಿ ಕಳೆದರೂ ಯುಗಾದಿ ಮರಳಿ ಬರುತಿದೆ ಹೊಸ ವರುಷಕೆ ಹೊಸ ಹರುಷವ ಹೊಸತು ಹೊಸತು ತರುತಿದೆ ಬೇಂದ್ರೆಯವರ ಈ ಸಾಲುಗಳು ಕಿವಿಗೆ ಬೀಳದೆ ಬೆಳಗಾಗದ ಯುಗಾದಿ ಹಬ್ಬದ ದಿನವೇ ಇಲ್ಲ. ಪರೀಕ್ಷೆಗೂ ಸಹ ಬೆಳಗ್ಗೆ ಬೇಗ ಏಳದವನು, ಈ ದಿನದಂದು ಎದ್ದು ಕುಳಿತು ಬಕಪಕ್ಷಿಯಂತೆ ಈ ಹಾಡನ್ನು...

Multiplicity…

Few days ago, while cleaning the house I found a camera tripod which was left by the previous occupant. The uninterrupted rain kept me inside the house over the weekend. There I was with an idle mind and plenty of time to kill. And I decided to kill myself along with the time. Few clicks... Continue Reading →

What’s in a name?

It was yet another round of fun talk when I told my friends that I had been to Norway over the weekend (during long drive to Shivamogga and Chikkamagalur last weekend). More and more places with peculiar names came out. To name a few - There are villages by name Singapura (Singapore) and Korea near... Continue Reading →
