Tale of a lake 20.7.2017 Deccan Herald - Opinion
Ten years ago, Providence had decided for us to relocate from Delhi to Dharwad. Here, amid dearth of friends and relatives, we found solace in a sequestered, man-made lake named Kelgeri, which is over 100 years old. My husband and I would love spending our evenings there, sitting and ruminating on the broad steps descending into its murmuring water. Spread over 230 acres, the lake captures the beauty of pastoral life with a verdant island in the middle where cattle can be seen scampering and grazing over its pastures. It was always entrancing to watch the incessant rolling of its waters, synchronised magically with the wafting wind and clouds. To boot, the sight and sound of warbling birds filled us with delight. On certain evenings, the entire landscape would bathe in heavenly tinctures of gold and crimson radiating from the descending sun. A few years later, Dharwad became the birth place of my son. When he started walking, we would bring him to the lake. He loved hopping and running all across its ...

Dressed up by rains 8.7.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
Geography lessons can completely slay your sense of aesthetics. They can really make life prosaic. Imagine this. Dark clouds have gathered. You look into the sky beseeching the lord for a mighty downpour. The rain boots are standing tall at the threshold. The first raindrop and you are ready to run out and dance in the rain. Suddenly that old geography lessons haunt you. If you are waiting for long rain, watch out for nimbostratus clouds; if you want hail, well, hail the cumulonimbus clouds. If you see a tall, puffy cloud that looks flat at the top or find flat low-level fray clouds floating around, rain is just another cloud away. They even define rain as precipitation that falls in the form of liquid water drops. They measure raindrops' diameter (0.1 to 9 mm), discuss its shape (diminutive raindrops are round; big raindrops are shaped like parachutes). Even count them — every minute, 1 billion tons of rain falls on the earth. Too much geography can kill the delight called rain. I love the rain. ...
