To smell coffee planning a trip to Coorg!

Coorg or Kodagu, originally called Kodaimalenadu, means ‘dense forest on steep hill’. Often called as the Scotland of India, Coorg offers misty hills, lush forest, acres and acres of coffee plantation, orange groves, undulating streets and breathtaking views.

Initial plans:

Crossing the concrete jungle

Bangalore –> Ramanagaram –> Channapatna –> Maddur –> Mandya –> Srirangapatnam –> Hunsur –> Piriyapatna –> Kushalnagar –> Suntikoppa –> Madikeri.




Enruote Stoppage:

Kushalnagar : Golden Temple and a beautiful Budhist Monastry and Kaveri Nisargadhana which is an island formed by river Kaveri.

Activities Planned ..

Depends on mood of Jibran and weather:

Nature Trail:
Trek inside Brahmagiri Wildlife Sanctuary (home to large herds of elephants) bordering Kerala . Expecting to pass through dense forest, grasslands, river streams and reach Iruppu Falls. Not to forget leeches and heavy rain on the way.Should be prepared for that.

Elephant Safari:
Dubare Elephant Camp is one place that I am planning to to visit. As suggested I have to take a boat ride over Cauvery River to reach here.

Abbey falls:

Harangi Dam

Talakaveri - the place that is generally considered to be the source of the river Kaveri.

Nagarhole National Park: Planning to drive through the forest.

If time permits (or in case weather/Jibran does not allow walking down the jungle) then shift to :

  • Omkareshwara temple

  • Bagamandala - is on the banks of the confluence of three rivers, Cauvery, Kannike and the sub terranian Sujyoti, popularly known as 'Triveni Sangama'. The famous Sri Bhagandeswara temple is located on the bank of the river over here.

  • Raja's tomb and seat,Madikeri fort/palace.

Skipping as per plan: White water rafting

Have also planned to participate in Angling at Valanoor, the backwaters of the river Kaveri

PS:It has to be a green trip :-)

"Hawas ne tukre tukre kar diya hay na’u insan ko
ukhuwwat ka bayan ho ja mohabbat ki zaban ho ja
ye Hindi, wo Khurasani, ye Afghani, wo Turani
tu ay sharmindayeh sahil uchhal kar bekaraan ho ja"

Meaning: "Greed has torn apart humankind. You (Muslims), become role models of love and brotherhood. Get beyond the narrow boundaries of nationalities (like Indian, Khurasani, Afghani, and Turkish) and jump into the limitless ocean (of Islam)."

 

"Shajar hay firqa arayee, ta’assub hay samar iska
ye wo phal hay jo jannat se nikalwata hay adam ko"

 

Meaning: "These divisions are the branches of a tree; its fruit is prejudice. This is the fruit which gets Adam (man) expelled from Jannah (peaceful life)."

To be updated with more verses. Soon

Vivek Pradhan was not a happy man. Even the plush comfort of the air-conditioned compartment of the Shatabdhi express could not cool his frayed nerves. He was the Project Manager and still not entitled to air travel. It was not the prestige he sought; he had tried to reason with the admin person, it was the savings in time. As PM, he had so many things to do!!

He opened his case and took out the laptop, determined to put the time to some good use.

"Are you from the software industry sir," the man beside him was staring appreciatively at the laptop. Vivek glanced briefly and mumbled in affirmation, handling the laptop now with exaggerated care and importance as if it were an expensive car.

Nice Poem (Veer : Brave) by great Hindi Poet, Ramdhari Singh Dinkar ji

सच है, विपत्ति जब आती है,
कायर को ही दहलाती है,
सूरमा नही विचलित होते,
क्षण एक नहीं धीरज खोते,

.

Not sure how to put it, because of the literary skills I lack but still.

There can be many reasons why Theists believe in God. Recently I found one more.


It was not more than a couple of days, I was frustrated, saddened and quite "down" at something happened with my friend's family. I was even more frustrated when I felt how limited our power is vis-a-vis nature. I felt helpless as I could not do anything for them, except for prayers.

 And when I prayed, I thought what I was taught years ago in Maktab (school) that all the good and bad comes from your Lord. I thought of it for a moment, and then remembered these are not the power of nature, but test of our Lord. I felt better. Although the sadness didn't go away, but I felt relatively better. And hence I reaffirm again, for my feel good factor .... I believe in GOD. To be less frustrated, and less depressed I believe in God. For everything else as well I believe in GOD.

And for my friend, he is a brave character. He will come out with flying colours. May Allah grant him patience and courage so that his testing time is passed. And I am sure it will.
