Trip to Jog Falls

Last weekend I had been to Jog falls n murdeshwar beach. Was very excited to see the overflowing jog fallsin newspapers…heard that it was full after 12 long years. The journey was not tht tiring. Once we reached the place…half of my excitement was lost looking at the falls…i was expecting more water (thanks to the pics in newspapers n mail forwards). Then the worst thing was that all the hotel rooms near jog falls were booked 🙁 … the way there were only two places for accommodation with each one having arnd 10 rooms.

Then after putting the luggage in a cloak room we started off to go down to the bottom of the falls (it was approx. 960 feet). The route was not that gud..but somehow we managed to reach the bottom of the falls within 50-60 mins.  That was the actual place to be….I could manage to go further till the point where the water actually falls into the pond….the scene was too gud to be described in words. I could see rainbow everywhere….in the water droplets falling on the rocks….in the pond water…..I was unable to directly look at the falls from tht point….after looking at all this I was very very happy….it appeared as if this was a gud enuf reason to go to jog falls. I think it was actually gud that water flow was less or else they would not allow us to go to the bottom of the falls 🙂 .

After leaving jog falls, we started off to murdeshwar beach (abt 3.5 hrs journey). Took a room near the beach. But the beach was not upto our expectations. We were hoping to see dry sand where we could spend some time ….but this was not of tht kind. It was a place wherein the fishermen could go fishing but not tht gud place for tourists. There was a famous temple also over there. After spending some time over there we started off to bangalore.

On the whole the falls were gud but murdeshwar beach was hopeless. Anyways have uploaded the photos in the photo album.

Bangalore Traffic >= Hell

From the day my office got shifted to the new campus I could get the real picture of bangalore traffic. Now early in the morning I have to leave my room by 7.45AM to take the cab. Then it takes atleast 1.5 hrs(thts d min time) to reach the office which is just abt 15kms from my place. And in the evening its still worse. One day it took us 2hrs to come back in the evening. I dont understand how the blore ppl manage in such worst conditions. On one hand it was raining, all d roads being blocked, vehicles coming from all directions….that was a really really worst situation. Sometimes to reach office on time I had to start by 7AM 🙁 so that there wont be any traffic 🙂

I dont understand why nothing is being done to address this traffic problem in blore. With so many ppl coming to this so called cosmopolitan city daily…so many new companies being started…I feel tht some drastic measures will have to be taken by the state govt. May be one alternative to this is to go to office early in the morning n come back late in the night 😀 …thereby spending almost 13-14 hrs in office 🙂 ….atleast the productivity would increase this way 🙂
