सावन का महिना, पवन करे शोर,
जिया रा ये झूमे ऐसे, जेसे मन मा नाचे मोर 

Monsoon is finally here in full swing. Thought of sharing some recent photographs which I have taken this season. Someone has said it so right, Photographs speak more than words. Have chosen best of the spots in Mangalore to click these images. If you have not been to this Green World in monsoons, believe that you have missed something. 
Enjoy the rains...

घनन घनन घिर घिर आये भद्रा, घन घन घोर कारे छाए भद्रा,
घनन घनन गूंजे भद्रा के डंके, घनन घनन देखो बिजुरिया चमके,
मन धडकाये भदरवा, मन मन धडकाये भदर्वाआ......

Sunset @ Panambur Beach

Boat to heavens... Wonder where do they find all these beautiful colours for their boats..

Steamers anchored @ Sultan Battery

For all of you that it sounds like Greek, know that its an advanced DSLR camera with a Telephoto zoom lens, & comes for a cost that our wife will often not appreciate...

Satellite Image of same location: Courtesy Google maps.  Cursor points @ d shipwreck

Yes U r right... Its not where it should ideally be.. But what the heck !!  It still looks lovely...

U must be wondering why all wrecked ships.. Then Mangalore has d good ones as well.. Just that, they don't let  nuts like U and me come close to them.. ;-)

 Sprint any one ??????

Sleeping Buddha @ Lake Pilikula Nisargadhaam

Images from Pilikula Nisargadhaam park.. If you may believe, all these ducks r free to walk anywhere in d park just like one of us visiting it...

Wish... we were at least half as united and disciplined...

Looks like, one close family...

  1. Yes ...indeed a wonderful place..!! I would definitely like to settle in mangalore some day...and a memorable trip for at least a lifetime, if not more. And bhai, this was, of course, a better way of sharing the memories than obsolete fb...

  2. Dear Abhideep
    Im flattered. And want you too to know that having you guys here was an absolute pleasure. In fact we have not been able to adjust to our routine life ever since u guys have gone. I wish all of us were staying together as one big happy family... Miss u all
