We were all supposed to meet up at the NICE Road - Mysore Road junction at 6:30 am. After a lot of suspense (Amit, Shahnawaz, Deepak, Perez & Aniruddha can elaborate here), we caught up with the rest of the gang at McDonald's on SH17 (Bangalore - Mysore state highway).

I must mention here that Hari, Jyo and myself had a sumptuous breakfast of thatte idlies at Bidadi - we were all supposed to have breakfast here but due to various reasons (the gang above can elaborate here again), they didn't turn up on time :D

We finally reached Brindavan Gardens and..

The headmaster wants to take us on a tour while all of us just want to sit in the shade and sip cool beverages

Arre Rishi, I know a picture says a thousand words but do put up a report too.
Nice pics though :D

Next time you schoolboys go for such school-outings, give me a shout, will ya ?!

akroy 25th May 2009 10:24

Looking at the heading that too posted by Hrishi, I thought for a second, "When did he leave his job and started headmaster-giri?"
Nevertheless, Nice to see the headmaster among his pupils enjoy Ice-Creams, tea, coffee, juice for a change.

Must say nice and healthy transition indeed (from Meet section to Travelogue section)

Hari, Sorry I couldnt join for this trip!! Thanks for your SMS !!

Amit/hrishi, thanks for the ride in your cars; have only one word for amit's "stock" baleno...WOW!!!clap:and as for hrishi's "truck"; please add one more person to the "I love Tata Safari" club :)

Hrishi, you seem to be growing younger every day. So, did you guys get to choose the school bus of choice?

Been ages since i went to Brindavan. It feels so much better when the crowds which throng the place are absent.

hillram 25th May 2009 10:47

Hey Nice pics and sounds like a great meet.
KRS Dam and Brindavan Gardens rekindles my sweet memories of stay in Mysore nearly a decade back.

Anyway, man I think this is first of its kind in T-BHP, a travelogue from our Hrag!!! Why don't we have the thread edited as - "First in T-BHP - Hrag's Sunday School outing - Gardens, Ice creams & Playing in Water" :D
