Heavens on Earth



Finally snapped my own wallpapers :P
The beauty of Udagamandalam personified by the pine and eucalyptus forests
on the road up the Doddabetta mountain which is 2623 m in height.
(not good for exercise challenged couch potatoes... :D )
Songs(?) and scenes from the movie Roja was shot in this forests.

What an amazing forest! The trees are very impressive! And that wonderful mysterious gloomy fog! (I really like fog!). It's all so suggesting.

Your pics are beautiful. I hope you didn't get knackered after the climbing, lol. Nah, I was joking. I presume you're fit!

Take care. ;)

I have recently been to Ooty and Coonor. Amazing places. The day I had visited, there was zero visibility on the road due to fog. I want to believe and indeed feel like I was in the clouds.

Some pics of my trip http://picasaweb.google.com/babu.bhaskaran/OotyTrip?authkey=Z5pmvV9tyFk#

Tom Evans said…
That's beautiful. Nothing like a good forest. I hope you got out the car and wandered off into the wild...

I enjoyed your very short verse in the post before too, I'm normally sceptical about such tiny efforts but there was surprising substance in it.

First Contact, Remixed

On the last Thursday of the year, about half past 10 local time, they landed in the garden of the White House. The security never knew what hit them, in no time all the men in blue and black and whatever colour they’re in were rolling on the ground laughing. Apparently the aliens hit them with laughing gas. Good, now we know they have some sense of humour and wont bomb us…hemmm…senseless. Another half an hour went past, the president was hiding under his table, the secret service nowhere in sight. Thinking of the worst, he reached for his cell phone and dialled 911 with his trembling fingers. So much for him, the aliens UFO, which funnily enough is shaped like a saucer, lighted up like a Las Vegas casino, sans neon signboard. A door opened up and from it rolled down a weird looking robot with a huge plasma screen TV for its head. Words fail to describe alien technology, literally, so I’m using earth analogy. Oh, and by the way, I am the dude, who saw it all.

The president peering from …

...you

for, its during the rainy seasons
when we sit admiring
the cool breeze and wandering droplets
we realize we are admiring the beauty of loneliness
from afar, of you and me
