Wordless Wednesday 13

This pic was taken some time back at Cubbon Park, Bangalore. It is one of my favourite snaps. πŸ™‚

This is something I love doing in gardens – trying to gaze at the sky through a canopy of trees. Believe me, the view is awesome!

      Hee hee
      Can’t say I have explored the entire Cubbon Park. I can say – I have been to it. Liked what I saw, and I’m definitely going back for more. πŸ™‚

        That is a place I spent so many of my childhood weekends!
        Went there a month ago too πŸ™‚

        Check out Lalbagh too.

      Nice. πŸ™‚
      The garden where I spent many of my childhood weekends is Law Garden at Ahmedabad. Love the place. It holds a special position in my heart. Never fail to visit Law Garden whenever I am in Ahmedabad.

      I can say I have explored Lal Baugh pretty decently.

      Thank you!!
      I have not ‘explored’ much of Cubbon Park, but can say I have ‘visited’ it. Yes, the greenery stays in your mind long after you have left the park. πŸ™‚

  7. What a great photo! It looks like an abstract painting. πŸ™‚

    Bookworms, here’s your 10-day treat
    TIMES NEWS NETWORK
    Bangalore: The Bangalore Book Festival is back. The festival will be held from Friday to November 21 at the Palace Grounds (Vishala Vihara entrance).
    A delight for book lovers, the festival, will have a vast collection of books on display and sale. According to the organizers, this year’s collection will leave Gen-Y a happy lot, as they plan to stock up books on computers and mobiles. β€œThe festival will showcase some applications that can be read through Apple, Android or similar platforms. There will be ebooks, digital books, books on tablets, PCs, phones, iPhones and other trends in the industry. Reading as a habit will never vanish, it’s only the mode which changes. We will try to bridge the gap this time,” said B S Raghuram, programme director. There will also be a bigger collection of Kannada books. The exhibition will also have subject books that librarians can pick up for their collection.
    Around 350 stalls with publishers from across the country are expected to participate with over a million titles. The exhibition will be open from 11 am to 8pm. Many cultural programmes will be conducted post 6pm.
    Last year, at least 1.5 lakh people visited the exhibition.

  12. I love this picture! It is almost black and white but only almost. I found myself trying to peer through the leaves at the sky above. I guess that is the whole point!

    You are right, I think I ought to go out to a garden and sit and do some sky, bird and greenery watching – for the refreshment of my tired soul… lol! I am sounding like 60? I definitely, right now, feel like 100. πŸ™‚

    • priyaiyer

      @Veens

      LOL. You definitely sound like a soul-weary 100-year-old. Hope you took a break and are all perked up now. πŸ™‚

      Yes, sky, bird and greenery watching – even doing nothing and watching people – is refreshing for the soul.

      @Praveen

      Hey! Yes, I am back. πŸ™‚
      Yeah, heard that today is the last day of the book fest. Not sure if I’d be able to make it. Too much happening at the home front. 😦 But will definitely try. πŸ™‚

      You went? Good collection?

      • Praveen

        Yeah I went on day 1. Excellent stuff. There was one book that was priced 345/- but they gave it for 170/-. Doesn’t that tempt you? ;).

    • priyaiyer

      @Praveen

      Oh yeah? That’s super awesome.
      That does tempt me. A lot. πŸ™‚ Will definitely try to make it.
