Tour Diary....

It's been around 6 months since i landed in Bangalore to start my second innings at newly acquired Mahindra Satyam. To my utter dismay i am in so called Nestle SAP project which is a support one. I am supporting nestle for the last 6 months even on weekends.It has been a rare occasion when i get offs on weekends so Vinod is always annoyed when he plans some outing and i say 'NO' because of unavoidable circumstances. But last week luckily i got 2 holidays on Thursday and Friday (Friday being OFF for EID). This time me and hemant decided to plan a trip come what may. We have to show to vinod that we are 'Mard'. We planned to go to Munnar(in TN) and Coorg (In Karnataka).Everything was going as per plan but some misunderstanding happened or Murphy took over. Then again the trip was rescheduled but this time we planned for #HOGENAKKAL FALLS and #COORG. We booked a Indica the very next day, early in the morning. Whole night we made checklist of the essential items that we require to protect ourselves from #Cold of #Coorg. Vinod created a playlist of 200 latest songs. everyone contributed on his own to make the 'Mardon ki Trip' a success. Next morning at 8:00 AM we left Electronic city towards #Hogenakkal falls. It's about 110 KMs from Electronic city Bangalore. Hogenakkal falls is a place in Tamil Nadu. Cauvery river falls from a height and the impact is such that water rebounces back after hitting the surface. One feels droplets of water hitting one's face and feels like #Jannat in scorching heat. Roja, Raavan have been shot there. The interesting point is that on one side of cauvery is Karnataka and other side is Tamil nadu.When we reached there it was scorching heat. So hemant and me decided to quench our thirst. Note: If you are in tamil nadu, don't ask for your favourite brand of beer because you won't get that and that too warm one. Most hillarious moment was we were offered Beer with #Phullian or #Bhel. After that we set out to see the Falls. First we encountered #Maalish waalas who will provide oil maalish to you. People were bathing, washing clothes and doing all sorts of stuff to contaminate the water. Ladies were also bathing #Naked as if it to wash off their sins. Ohhh i must tell you,if you are going there keep change as after every 100 meters a barricade wil come and ask for entry fees. And they are not Govt. employees but local #Janta. Most amazing moment was boating in #Cup shaped boats. The rower took out boat almost near the great fall. That moment was hell scary and i got my balls in my mouth and cried," Darr ke aage Peshaab hai". After boating for about 45 minutes we returned and set out for our next journey to #Coorg. Don't miss this part as in this part Murphy chacha takes over full control. Till then wait for my next update.......
