A few more pics from my kitty

One fine evening near my native

50 : 50

Jog Falls flowing with all its proud

The pride of Karnataka, Jog falls(829ft) is in Shimoga district (around 380km from Bangalore) is the highest plunge waterfall in India. It is a great tourist attraction and a must see place. Never miss this majestic fall whenever in Bangalore (Karnataka).

The bark

Leamon leaves

The Lovers

Beetle leaves

Walking trees ;-)

The reflection
(an antique pot at home; one from my grandpa's collection)

The big bang (a snap from the last Deewali collection)

The Enlightened

Balancing act

Vermicelli (made by my mom...its soooooo tasty... and she makes it very well)
2 cups Vermicelli, 1 tspoon chana dal (a kind of bean), 1 tspoon urad dal (black gram), 1/4 tspoon mustard seeds, 2 tspoon cashewnuts, 2 tspoon ceanuts, 1 onion, 2 green chillies, 1/2 inch ginger, 1 potatoe, 1/4 cup peas, 1 carrot, 1 tomatoe, 4 1/2 cups water, 3 tblsp oil, 2 tblsp ghee, 3 sprig curry leaves and salt to taste

A very light south indian veggie lunch
(the brown one is ginger curry and green one is made out of greens; with pappad and ghee)

Yakshagana (This snap was shot while an artist was getting ready for a performance last year near Mangalore, Karnataka)

A wonderful dance drama popular in Karnataka and northern parts of Kerala, which may look like Opera for those from west. 'Yakshagana' simply means 'Exotictribe's Song' or can say 'song of yaksha'. Yakshas are exotic tribes who are superhuman with supernatural powers which are mentioned in classic Indian epics like Mahabharata, Ramayana, Puranas etc

Great images! Thanks for sharing them...

Indolence is a delightful but distressing state; we must be doing something to be happy. Action is no less necessary than thought to the instinctive tendencies of the human frame.
