A Comeback- Long Overdue!

Hello folks! It's been what, a few months now? Close to half a year! The past few months have flown by, and have been beautiful in their own respect. I've met wonderful people, have had some memorable experiences, have learnt certain things for life. And, I have also realised that I miss writing on this space. Of course, I've been writing in my journal regularly. However, amidst the busy turn that life has now taken, this space has been left unattended to. This is something I plan to rectify. One cannot be ignored at the cost of another. Though I might not be able to make time everyday, I plan to write something at least once a week. 

One change that I would be introducing is, from a blog mainly focused on travel, this space would now turn into a lifestyle blog. Meaning there would be a bit of travel, a bit of food and recipes, a few book reviews, local culture, and yes, the new additional entity would be short motivational pieces when I feel like it. Nah, I won't go all sentimental and turn this space that I love so much into yet another blog giving relationship advises. Though I read such advises quite often, I feel I'm not yet experienced enough to start handing out advises of my own. In fact, I could do with a few myself! 

No, this will continue to be the fun informal space it used to be, albeit slightly different. And I would look forward to your suggestions, to help me improve the content. 

And as is my usual practise, I leave you with a picture. This was taken at my beautiful town, Honavar. We went boating on River Sharavati one early morning; the colours of the sky unfolding, the morning chirps of the birds, the cool soothing air kissing the nose, and our boat drifting through the morning mist- all of this made for a heavenly time spent. As I didn't have my camera on me, I couldn't get many pictures, and had to make do with my phone. Sharing one of my favorite shots here.



Cheers,
Piyu!

Spirit Worship: Jumadi-Banta Kola

I had earlier written a post titled Of Daivas and Spirits, about a custom indigenous to this part of the coast- Spirit Worship. As mentioned earlier, these spirits are many, including Panjurli, Varthe, Guliga, Jumadi - Banta, Mantradevate, etc. There is a very interesting story behind these spirits, which you can read HERE.
Of the many rituals conducted to appease the spirits, the most colourful (and glamorous) is conducting a Bhoota Kola. This is a night long ceremony to invoke the spirit(s) concerned, which then occupies an Oracle temporarily, and can even converse with people through a mediator. The Kola season lasts for about 4-5 months, i.e December to May. 
Earlier this year, we decided to visit a Kola held in at our village. This particular one is conducted in a grand manner every year, and is thronged by people of the surrounding villages. The spirits invoked are Jumadi - Banta. The place was beautifully decorated. Lot of musicians and drummers were involved. The silver headgear…

A Slice of the Western Ghats: AGUMBE

Agumbe is a tiny village in Shimoga district, and part of the eco-sensitive zone of the Western Ghats, the lifeline of the coast. The region receives very heavy rainfall, and is also referred to as the Cherrapunji of the South. The region has lush beautiful rain forests, and is also home to a number of unique flora and fauna, indigenous to the zone. The enigmatic King Cobra also resides in the in the thick rainforests.
