Padavedu – 2

… The tractor was not to be…

And so, we had tried our car… The car did go up some, but after that it was a losing proposition… The contours of the path, the loose soil and stones, the sudden twists – these and such rendered progress questionable…

At some point we got off end legged it…

Welcome, in this post, to a picture trail, of the hike up the hill…

At the hill top is the temple of the flute playing Krishna… Its a hardy hike… Green hills… The view is nice…

At some point, we get onto steps… These steps have been made recently… We were told that the first time when Sri Venu Srinivasan came looking for the temple, there were no steps… He and his team had to somehow make their way up treacherous slopes…

As we negotiate the steps, we pause and enjoy the beautiful landscape…

My co-pilgrim and host, “S”, is bringing a huge basket of flowers, to be offered for the worship of Krishna… He is a true devotee all right…

We stop often, to catch our breath, and take in the scene…
