Escape the norm 8.8.2017 Deccan Herald - Wednesday
Picture yourself booking tickets, packing bags and taking off to an unexplored place. That then seems to be the best way to beat the stress that comes with modern life. While desktop jobs and crazy deadlines are affecting young professionals in an unhealthy way, they are discovering that travel could be the way forward. Opening up to a stranger is always easier than talking to people who are a part of your daily schedule, points out Akshatha KS, a financial analyst. "When you want to step away from it all and can't find the right space to de-stress, a short trekking expedition or a weekend trip can rejuvenates one. You are exposed to different cultures and you meet new people who you might not see again. This helps one in unbottling emotions and opening up," she elaborates. From Gandikota to Kudremukh, Neha Kulkarni, an analyst, loves trekking and exploring new places, as often as she can. "I often travel in groups as it has its own added benefits. When one is bogged down by a stressful schedule, the ...

Explore the magic of monsoon 19.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Misty mornings, fresh breeze, earth's petrichor fragrance, luscious green landscapes — monsoon brings with it a yearning zeal to celebrate the coolness and mysticism of weather. This time of the year also ushers in a sense of adventure in nature lovers. And with the spirit of a wanderer and the soul of an explorer, many energetic youngsters get out their trekking shoes to embark on a journey and experience nature in all its splendour. To them, Western Ghats — the benevolent mountains with exotic flora and fauna — is a paradise. The hotspot of biodiversity, Western Ghats attracts trekkers all year round. Yet, it is in this moist season that the Ghats is at its alluring best. Trekkers' favourite Prajwal, a final year engineering student, is a fervent trekker and considers ascending Kumara Parvatha near Kukke Subrahmanya to be his best trek till date. However, the end of monsoon would be the best time for this challenging trek and he prefers to hike the not-so-risky terrains of the Ghats ...

Sentiments can save our water bodies 22.5.2017 Deccan Herald - Analysis
"But it is more a matter of sentiment!" You hear such a statement made in a sheer no-nonsense, practical tone during a conversation and are surprised how it evokes sentiment in you. In fact, when I heard these words, on why the fight is on against the projects with river Nethravathi, it struck me that I had agreed there was fear of playing with nature, but failed to recognise the acts as outcomes of sentiment. Of course, it was selfish to not share the river water. Sentiments, said my father, are like the river herself, developed over generations. They are background players, growing subconsciously but strongly within us - difficult to explain or fight. The river makes me feel nostalgic, as children we played or spent silent evenings with Nethravathi and her tributaries. Kayyara Kinhanna Rai's poem on the journey of Nethravathi from Kudremukh in Chikkamagaluru district till the Arabian Sea, also describes the Western Ghats and the coastal region. I always felt this description dearer than Kuvempu's poem ...
