Hi Laluks,

Very interesting travelogues, you are man of many talents.
You have taken excellent photos, specially landscapes, birds great!

I was really impressed to see your home with so many selected fruits trees, each one from famous locations. Great! keep adding to your home
garden more selected fruits and rare plants. I saw Jackfruit is also common in south Indian homes. Add Dates, Olive to your home collection if you have sufficient space.

Wish you all the best! look forward to see more interesting photos soon.

Regards,

Thanks vintagepoint.

Yes jack fruit is a must But the variety I have at my hometown needed a plot for itself !! Still hunting for a hybrid small variety.

Dates and Olive - I'll add to my list. Space will be an issue though

Guys,

Today's Malayala Manorama news paper reported capturing a Leopard from Valparai. It has attacked a kid to death last week and forest department has trapped this fellow yesterday.

Checkout the below link to have a look on the spotted cat.

Now that you are well into SLR territory it seems that your old camera is inherited by PPG Senior (and she's putting it to good use). When do you plan to SLRize her?

PS. Your signature indicates that your Civic has clocked many more miles than the Swift. Would love to see a Civicked ... type of travelogue too.

Shocking. Seems he killed a 9 year old.

Thanks tNh.
I will SLRize them after I learn to answer all the questions they'll come up with. Else they'll tell Daddy doesnot know anything

Civic - the major one was
http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/travel...km-8-days.html
This has Dakshin Karnataka, and the full coast line from Bekal all the way upto Maharashtra - Goa - the coastline in full, except for the forests, waterfalls and backwaters.

And one amongst the others

I also had driven down to Aymanam - In search of the God of small things, but I never wrote about it.

Sirji..All of a sudden Power failure. I was inside the time machine (or whatever they call it - to experience virtual reality) developed by you. Went all the way to Neliyampathy, saw each and every bird, the sceneries, tasted the food etc etc. But alas...i rediscovered myself in Bangalore after a continuous travel of one hour through your posts. Not fair..the journey must go on...

Superbly superb photologue..need to take a lesson for my Nikon D60 from you. And the best part is you have already your followers on the job training.

Long to visit to your place to see that mini forest. Will catch up sometime.

From what I could gather from the other travelogues seems it had rained a bit and is warm, but not hot

As planned we reahed Valparai on Friday evening.

Weather was hotter than we expected. Needed AC all the time when driving.

We also cancelled the visit to Top-slip because of the hot weather - our guide advised so.

So instead od Monday we returned to Bangalore on Sunday itself.
