At long last, we were at the ‘Big city’ and soon our taxi cab became a part of hundreds of slow moving cars and buses. Here and there, a few motor bikes and auto rikshaws were struggling to squeeze through narrow gaps.

All through the morning, it was a pleasant journey, right from the hill station and through the breath taking forest area. Though we were on the look out for some tuskers, we did not come across any of them but there were monkeys and deers and a couple of peacocks. As soon as we crossed over to the neighboring state, our stomachs seemed to growl, “Enough, Enough; over to that Udupi Hotel … Quick”. We had our breakfast and the journey continued.

With so many streets and buildings all over the big city, it was difficult to locate the hotel we were to stay. So we focused on the purpose of our visit and got it done much earlier than we expected.

Now, we were as free as mountain winds and spotted the hotel in fifteen minutes or so and rested in our room for an hour.
The city is so big and crowded and expensive too. But, to our pleasant surprise, there were vegetarian restaurants here and there. Though small and crowded most of the time, the food items supplied by them were delicious and tempting (Be it idly or set dosai they were tasty and we were more than satisfied)

Of course, the city is so big and ultra modern but we never expected that there would such restaurants which supplied those yummy stuffs at reasonable rates.

Hats off to them!

First things first. I am one of those retired chaps who are young at heart. I watch cricket matches and jump for joy when Tendulkar scores yet another century. I read newspapers and books too, though I am not crazy about them. I think I have a mind free from hatred and I owe it to the wonders of nature and music. I scribble something now and then and call myself a writer! Though I have settled in Ooty, a lovely hill station in Tamil Nadu—I must emphasize the fact that I was born and brought up in Tellicherry in North Kerala and studied in the good old Government Brennen College. Of and on, my mind goes back to my ancestral house at Tiruvangad in Tellicherry in front of an ancient Sri Ram temple. I am indebted to this wonderful place which inculcated in me a love for cricket and literature. But all said and done, I am an Indian first.
