Maidenahalli Tales...
anushsh

It had been a long time since shivakumar_l and me have been trying to do some trip. So when the long weekend was appoarching we just decided that we should go to Maidenahalli considering the fact that the other well known locations would be crowded. And when I informed this to deponti, she just wanted to be there. The plan was made. There was yet another good news now for us that sainath would be in Bangalore during that weekend.AND we really wanted him to be part of this trip as a surprise for deponti. Arvind Badrinarayan , the Vet with whom I have been interacting over emails happened to be in Bangalore and thought it would be the best place to catch up with him.. a wildlifer in the wild :D

With whatever little sleep I had, I did manage to wake up right at 4am. And now I realised that I was supposed to get ready at 4am.There were already a few missed calls. I called up shiva and he told me that he was already on his way.Woah.. I need to get ready now. By the time I got dressed up, shiva was there waiting in fron tof my gate. Now we had to wait for a couple fo mins for sainath and we left my house at 4.30am to pick up Deponti and Arvind. They were apparently waiting since 4am (whoa).. anyway now driving back the same route till Yashwantpur for shiva was quite boring. So we were out of Bangalore by 5am.

Some Birding here and thereCollapse )

Now finally it was the time for the Blackbucks. Shiva saw a few Blackbucks over the slopes and that is it. We just parked the car and started walking towards the Blackbucks.As soon as they saw us, they started running away from us. Shiva ran for a few distance and tried getting some shots with his hefty lens.We didnt know that they were so scared of human beings. As we walked through the plain dry grassland, we often found the Sandgrouse taking off. It was such a lovely sight.

The Ultimate ChaseCollapse )

Both Sainath and me enjoyed the chase thoroughly. It was simply amazing even though we got lost while tracing back the path. Thanks to Airtel.

Nobody can deny that Tumkur has some amazing wildlife.Last time it was the Slender Loris and this time it was the endangered Blackbucks co-existing in the human habitat and that too not very far from urban land is something unbelieveable.Mind-Boggling.


Some more wildlifing

Finally some amazing wildlifing after a long time. This time it was at Maidenahalli with deponti,sainath,shivakumar_l and Arvind. Amazing Blackbuck sightings and birding too. Will post a detailed report later. Thanks guys. It was great fun with all that humor :D

Did some early morning walk to Lalbagh followed by some amazing breakfast at Brahmins.


Quite a surprising day..

This is something which I had NOT expected even in my wildest dreams to happen. I had lost hope on the phone since the repairer said that he couldn’t repair it. So I didnt even bother to pick it up. This evening, they guy calls me up and I for a second thought that he must be calling me to pick up the dead phone. But then he says the phone is functional and I could pick it up tomo. Wow!!!

Ah.. it was such a relief. Atleast deponti can stop cursing herself for taking me to that guy now. Anyway as a formality.. Thank you deponti. I owe you some chocolates now ;-)

AND happy birthday sainath. I am sure even the owls would have wished him by now ;-)
