Saturday/Sunday 7 -8 July 2018

BirthiHouse, Salekeri

Visit to Ooru - Udupi, Brahmavara, Salekeri, Birthi and the surroundings has always been a pleasure. The rainy season, continuous rain, greenery all around, sound of continuous rains, slippery courtyard (angala), sound of peacock around the house when the rains are little bit subsided.....

All memories of childhood days. Going to school with school bad in the heavy rains, crossing heavy water flowing in the small water ways been always scary. It was fun.

Recent visit to ooru reminded of those days.

Went by night train from Bengaluru to Mangaluru, reached by 8 am after having left from Yeshwanthpur, Bengaluru at 7.30 pm previous day. Train was two hours late due to heavy rains and little landslide near Puttur, which was cleared and the rain proceeded to Mangaluru Central.

The Express buses in Karavali Karnataka is always special. You find theses very aggressive, competitive buses filling people even if it's full. They come and wait at the Railway station, for the convenience of people (also for getting passengers).

We boarded the bus to travel to Udyavara and on the way the driver was stopping for all people calling them to come to the bus, though it's express.

The rain soaked road, greenery around was very pleasant.

After having breakfast at Udyavara. proceeded to Birthi Salekeri by car again in the continuous rain.

Spent some time there, performed pooja and proceeded to our program at Mattu, Katpadi.
