Last Saturday, it was father & son time again as Pamela in school after long summer vacation. Aarush was doing his part to keep my hands busy and asked him are you a Nut for being such naughty? And the apt reply was “Yes, I am; I am a coconut”. Could not stop laughing for a long time. Even though we call it a nut but coconut is not a nut botanically?
Scene-2 One Chief Minister of India decides which countries are allowed to play in one Indian state for IPL. Well she is not the first one to do there was a stage set for the same in Mumbai long time back. Looks like it is not impacting cricket much and everyone is happy with IPL Season –Six.
Scene-3 One Indian minister comments on drought. I am leaving it out and saving myself from typing.
Scene-4 In Facebook, there are opinion on Aloe-Vera to politics, economy, technology, history and what not. Well like top 3 example I could just ignore them or comment or hit the humble ‘like-button’. Not sure why there is dislike button ? May be it is more “Gamification process” than “engaging”.
Scene-5 in a recent party heard people refusing airline based on their country of origin. Does it really make sense ?
The same person avail other products/services of that same country directly or indirectly for sure in today’s connect world. Just for the record I was drunk and wise and remained mute :)
As said in the first really thinking on the digital/social context as here I am expressing my opinion without any heart-full argument on the same.
Anyway reached Bijapur and we opted for Hotel Pearl on Station road. The hotel is a very basic one and does not carry any recommendation, some websites and friends mentioned about Hotel Madhuvan were we did enquire from Bangalore. Any way after a quick checkin we headed towards the attractions of Bijapur.
On the negative side it resulted in longer drive for me and dropping few destinations from Northern sea-side destinations. Now we have to do that another time as it would require another sojourn of a week to complete. Here is both the list for a easy reference.
|Day-1||Bangalore||Hospet - a simple a laure drive||365 KM||Hotel Malligey|
|Day-2||Hospet||Hampi - Day Trip in Stone Age||15 KM||Hotel Malligey|
|Day-3||Hospet||Aihole + Patadkal , night stay in Badami||158 KM||Badami court|
|Day-4||Badami||Banashankari tempi and badami cave followed by Mahakuta Temple and drive to Bijapur and covered as many place we could||142 KM||Hotel Pearl, nothing great checkout others|
|Day-5||Bijapur||Early morning Gol Gumaz - we were the first and sole visitor of the wispering gallery. Head out to Bangalore by 9. lunch at Chitradurga and visit the fort and drive back home||527 KM||Sweet Home|
