Galibore....

adarshraju, anushsh, my friend from the NTP, Sandeep Chakrabarti and Abhisheka Gopal are all volunteers for Clean and Green, and we went to Kanakapura to prepare for the cleanup drive and the medical camp that C&G will be doing with Honeywell next Saturday.

We covered a fair amount of work that would enable the smooth functioning of both the cleanup and the medical camp, in the process, still finding time to photograph some interesting things... Adarsh has just bought a Canon 40D and was always to be found with his pet to his eye...in fact, the camera should be called the Apple, because it's the apple of his eye!

Let me start with the beauty of the sky and trees that the Kaveri reflects in herself....

The Angling Lesson

When Abhisheka, Adarsh,Anush, Sandeep and I (that's the way we were taught to make a list of people..."x,y,z, and I"... not, "me and x,y,z "!) went to Galibore, we found one of Sandeep's friends, an avid angler, called Balaji, getting ready to leave the camp for the Hyra fishing area with his fishing tackle. So we followed him there, and we all got a great first experience of angling....and according to Sandeep, the young men had the luck of the devil, because each time they got a Mahaseer , a famous fish found in the Kaveri, which can be really giant-sized, on their line.

Here's the Mahaseer, when it was caught and before Sandeep released it:

We left the Kaveri as peaceful as before, having concluded the lesson in angling!
