In a green paradise 19.7.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
My brother-in-law Dr Ravi and his wife Sandhya had been inviting us to visit Munnar. He is working with Kannan Devan Hills Plantations Company Pvt Ltd and when they were in Bengaluru, we joined them on their return journey to Munnar by car. After having lunch at Udumalpet, we started navigating the ghat section. As we dove up the Munnar hills, we could see only dried-up plants and shrubs initially. But soon, the greenery started unfolding. A journey of nearly two hours brought us to the bungalow occupied by the couple. Where did we go? We got up early next morning to hear the singing of birds. As we started our morning walk, we were stopped by the whistles of a rare bird, which sounded like that of a school boy. The bird has been appropriately named as 'whistling school boy'! We enjoyed this walk on all the six days of our stay in Munnar. During our stay, we visited the Tea Museum, set up by Tata Tea, which is located at Nallathanni Estate. At the museum, we had a look at the curios, photographs and ...

Chasing the rains in Nagarhole 10.7.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
As we drive through the forest, jumping along jauntily in the safari jeep, the very aroma in the air changes. The smell of rain hitting the earth at a distance envelopes us slowly. This is the second pall of showers in three days. The rare spell of sunshine we are basking in quickly gives way to grey clouds, slivers of lightning in the distance, with a surreal and subdued cloud-muted light cast over the green expanse in front of us. The cameras go click-click-click. And then the skies open their mouths fully and the rain unleashes itself with force. The forest plunges into an eerie darkness. Suddenly the Nagarhole National Park holds out promise of another kind — not the dangling carrot of 'wildlife spotting', but a glimpse of what a forest looks like in a downpour. It's our first time inside the forests during the rains. It looks beautiful. And overwhelming, this power of nature. The Park is spread over Mysuru and Kodagu districts, and is part of the Nilgiri Biosphere Reserve, which is home to one ...

A nest in Nilgiris 28.6.2017 Deccan Herald - Supplements
May has always been one of my favourite months as it is my birthday month. This time we decided to celebrate in the Nilgiris. We zeroed in on Kotagiri, an offbeat place to spend the weekend and breathe in some pure air. Kotagiri is a small town in the Nilgiris district of Tamil Nadu. It is situated at an elevation of 1,793 metre (5,883 feet) above sea level. The place derives its name from the Kota tribe, the earlier inhabitants of the region. If you are looking for a secluded getaway, no other place can beat this one. How did we go? We drove out of Bengaluru at 9 am on a Thursday morning. A long drive lay ahead and at 11 am, we stopped for a quick brunch. A dreamy journey traversing through Mysuru, Bandipur, Masinagudi and Ooty was nothing but rejuvenating. After a fulfilling evening meal at Panda Atrium, Ooty, we headed straight to Green Nest Resort with the help of Google Maps. We reached the resort at 6 pm. Our balcony displayed views of lush green tea plantations, the adjoining Nilgiri mountain ...
