Treasures of yore 30.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Monday
In today's fast paced world, the focus is mostly on moving forward at breakneck speed with a thrust on being global citizens. In such a scenario, it is not always easy or necessary to connect with the past and very often, one tends to forget their roots and where one comes from.

A heritage hunt is a fun way to connect with the past of the city and learn about it. The participants are given clues about landmarks in a particular place with each clue leading to the next.

In the land of thunder dragon 27.4.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
It was a balmy evening in Bengaluru in late October when we decided to spend our New Year's eve in Bhutan. It was going to be my first journey to a foreign land and we planned to go backpacking across west Bhutan along with a few fellow backpackers whom we met as part of the Bangalore AdvenTurers (BAT) club. It took us almost five hours to reach Phuentsholing from Bagdogra, and we halted for the night in Phuentsholing. After obtaining our permits to visit Paro and Thimphu from the local immigration office next morning, we proceeded to Paro town which was 160 km away. By the time we reached Paro valley, it was night and cold at zero degree celsius! However, the cold did not deter us from walking across the Pachhu river and gazing at the beautifully lit up Rinpung Dzong, a fortress monastery built at the beginning of the 10th century. The next morning we proceeded to the famous 'Tiger's Nest'. It is located on a sheer 1,000 metres cliff, about 10 km from the city, and houses the 'Taktshang' (pronounced ...
