Bhasmangi's stunning landscape 11.6.2012 Deccan Herald - Supplements
TRAVEL Bhasmangi is a nondescript village in Tumkur district, barring the presence of a fortress atop a hill. Climbing the hill to reach the fortress can be rewarding, thanks to the spectacular view of the village and its surroundings on offer, discovers B V Prakash The dry belt of Tumkur district is strewn with innumerable rocky hills punctuating endless fields. In ancient times, many of these hills were chosen by lesser rulers and chieftains to build fortresses where they reigned during their heydays. While many of these hills themselves were unapproachable because of steep vertical cliffs guarding them, the local chiefs made them even more secure by building forts that were impregnable. Some of these forts of yesteryears stand tall and strong even to this day. Bhasmangi is a nondescript village in Tumkur district, northwest of the more well-known Madhugiri.

A sepia-toned picture can take you back longingly to your past; a black-and-white photograph shows you a time before your own (well not if present-day technology has anything to do with it, I guess) and the more recent colours that infuse life into a frame can even make you see the same old things in a completely different light. And that's exactly what happens when I chance upon an abandoned coffee-table book, opened to a page depicting a majestic stone edifice, blackened with time but resplendent in prayer: the Vidyashankara Temple in Sringeri. Sringeri: With its myriad temples and a sense of spirituality that permeates through every home and street, this hill town in the Chikmagalur district has been, to my family, a ...

The lecture demonstration covered all aspects of Hindustani Khayal music. Vaishali spoke extensively about Hindustani music which was well-appreciated by the audience. Giving a detailed description about Hindustani classical music, Vaishali delved into the various segments of Khayal singing.

She said legend has it that Niyamat Khan was insulted on one occasion by a vocalist of Muhammad Shah Rangeela. The emperor sympathised with the vocalist and Niyamat Khan and Firoz Khan left the court and settled on the outskirts of Delhi. Under the pen ...
