If some of you have been wondering where I have been for the past few weeks then, the answer is NH7 highway…. I mean on trip to Bangalore. I have been to Bangalore a zillion times before but this time around the trip was different. Firstly I traveled to Bangalore twice in two weeks, secondly the 2 weeks have been very stressful and emotionally draining and thirdly we drove to Bangalore the 1sttime around. Well, when I am on this highway let me tell you that I finally got to the see the ISKCON temple that I have been longing to see. This temple is near Anantapur and is shaped in form of a chariot. The building is in pink color but during the nights it takes a golden shade and looks beautiful thanks to the lights. The temple is as beautiful inside as outside. Some of the paintings of Lord Krishna will leave you spell bounded. The visit to this temple was the only silver lining in my whole trip.
(I took this pic somewhere on the highway… isnt it good?)
(This is the view of the whole temple)
(The front part of the temple during the night)
(The chariot part in the night… Isnt it really Beautiful)
(I found them in the temple)
(Outside the temple… I tried to go closer, he started getting up and I moved back)
(Some where on the way)
Anyways, moving on from the NH7 highway, I wanna thank Shreya and Guria for the blog awards they have showered me with. Unlike the last time when I had kept the awards open to all… this time around I have decided to award them to a few deserving bloggers.
This One comes from Guria. I want to pass this award on to
The second one comes from Guria too
This one comes from Shreya and I pass it on to
This one comes from Shreya too
Shreya again :P… this girl has given me 5 awards…. I wonder if I deserve them 😛
As usual Shreya has given me these awards with a stipulation of doing the tag that she created… so here I go –
1)5 things that you grab before you leave home
2)5 Confessions that you wanna make –
I claim to have read the book ‘Critical’ by Robin Cook but the truth is I haven’t even got through the first 20 pages. The book is way too boring for me atleast.
Till date I don’t know how to put make up. During weddings my cousins help me put it on.
I am kinda possessive about my music and book collection. If someone borrows something and doesn’t return it, I get restless and resort to nagging :D.
If I have guests at home and I have to make round rotis, I use the plate to get the shape.
When I was young I used to steal guava from the neighbors tree. They seem to taste better than the fruits that my parents bought.
