Bahubali!

I was mesmerized with the Buttermilk falls, a lot more than I imagined. Right in the center, high up the falls, there is a rock that resembles a fallen tree. Now don’t get me wrong, this is not the place that the famed shivlinga scene from the famous movie Bahubali (part 1) was shot. I’m…

Falling To Rise

We live in strange times, reality and fantasy is a blur. Sometimes, I feel we live in a Jumanji-esque universe-when the game is over, the world will become normal again. Forget politics or the mess made by the rich and powerful people in the world, the life I lead also seems to be crumbling around…

Fragile

Dandelion translates to Lion’s tooth in French, and signifies the transition of life. The flower, in its full bloom is a bright shade of yellow, and as it matures, it turns white and brittle.

Buttermilk, Anyone?

This is the Jhari Waterfalls in Chikmagalur, also know as the Buttermilk Waterfalls. The name comes from the speed of the fall that resembles churned buttermilk.

Niagara Falls, India!

I have been visiting several spots around Bangalore with my mother. This place I discovered, thanks to a friend. Then I looked up more information about this weekend spot that I wanted to visit. Although we are at the peak of summer, the Kaveri river, which lends its water to the falls, is gently flowing….

Walking Around Water

At 109 meters (or 358 feet), the Ramboda Falls is considered to be the 11th highest waterfall in Sri Lanka. Located in the Pussellawa area, the falls are formed by Panna Oya, a tributary of Kothmale Oya. Since I visited in the end of February, I couldn’t witness the falls in all of its glory….

Weekly Photo Challenge: H2O

I miss flowing water. The sound of a gushing waterfall or crashing waves, the mildly blowing salty or fresh winds is what I miss the most about home. But somewhere, in some happy garden, there are such makeshift waterfalls in Pune. How I wish I could hear the sound of water, but not falling rain……
