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

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

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 !!

Abhi

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.

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.

@hrag,
is it just me? can't see pics of post no 13, i.e. your last post.

btw,
it seems that some big boys had real kiddy fun in the summer vacations.

@ general khan,
man! you look like cowboy in that sports shoes, jeans, white belt; goggles and hat missed.
