Manchanabele dam, a scenic spot at a decent distance from Bangalore (around 40-50 kms) happens to be a short and sweet getaway.

Bannerghatta National Park, Bangalore

I was quite impressed going through the articles of fellow Blogger Amritha Prem who has completed the A-Z marathon of writing articles arising out from each of the 26 alphabets and it did attract my interest of picking up this format sometime in future.

Sridevi Ma’am, you will be remembered…

As I woke up this morning, I was shocked to find out about the demise of the great actor. A queen of many hearts and a sensible versatile actor who ruled the television sets back then, through her splendid acting.
