Shivanasamudra in monsoon - The glorious Gaganachukki & Barachukki waterfalls

Monsoon rains had cast its magic! What's more fascinating idea than a short ride in monsoons?  To witness the blooming greenery and showers. I was craving for a bike ride to refresh my mind from the chaos of urban life. A swift thought on visiting Shivanasamudra struck and I was like get set go! 150kms ride from Bengaluru did not seem far for me. Planning on a Friday evening, I called up my friends for a ride the next day [Too late, I agree to it :P]. Many did not turn up, it was indeed a last minute plan. However, I knew that it would be the best time now to visit the glory of the falls as the water was released from KRS dam, just a week before. It was a Do/Die situation for me :P (Happens to me always! :P) I did not back off and the next morning four of us were all set to hit the road. Brief on Shivanasamudra Shivanasamudra literally means Shiva's sea .  The river Cauvery divides into two branches that flow around the island of Shivanasamudra. The western branch is Gaganachu

The Academy of Pastry Arts - Learn baking and culinary by experts

Who doesn't love desserts? In fact, I would wait for the desserts to arrive at my table during buffets. The plus point of the desserts is their ability to please the eyes and palate in one shot. While I enjoy the desserts, a thought process of what ingredients were used, how much effort and how's it prepared makes me always curious. Because I believe baking is an art! I have realized it in a hard way after failed miserably at my attempts to bake a foolproof cake. Well, Apart from Google & Youtube, I always wanted someone to guide me throughout the process of baking and making the most delicious pastry.

The Sindh, though not a part of modern India, but has its food roots widespread in India and beyond. Sindhi cuisine has numerous signature recipes curated long ago and the food culture is still favorite of many. This was my first introduction to Sindhi cuisine at Sindh Kitchen and I was curious & ready for a Sindhi palette.

The aptly chosen ceiling lightings with subtle interiors and jaali partitions were pleasing to me. They do have a private dining area well maintained rusti
