Another hot tourist spot in Ooty is Doddabetta .
Amazing scenery is not free any more , the count your heads , eating bajji and drinking tea , as if you are a terrorist who is trying to blow the country up , by not paying Rs 5 or 10 whatever it is per head ( I forgot to mention , the same is true for the flowers , they charge Rs.30 for the camera in the gardens and I am pround to say I shot enough to get me value for money 😀 , don’t get it why they need to charge for cameras , cameras don’t dirty , they tell the truth , if there is garbage , then the photo won’t look good – forget charging for the cameras , encourage them and you might see the amount of littering going down ) .
Anyway considering we didn’t go any where off beat ,as this was more for us clearing our city-ed heads , this is what happens .. But at least the telescope view was free – they showed me a cross and claimed that to be a military hospital in Coonoor , for all I know that could have been a cleverly made mark on the other side of the telescope .
That just about covers every angle you can see from there , see I told you , it is just a view and nothing else , but well a thing of beauty if forever ( well something else is forever as well – Chennai and this stupid climate , sweaty! Hot! ) .

What effort do you think,it would have taken to mould this into the way it is.Why should it be like this?Why not a straight geometrical shapes? Time and forces make everything like this,is this what is called experience? Wisdom? Or are we to see this,like we see anything else?
P.S: the reason why i like to take photos is because,i can see the picture and think what i felt at that moment and then build on it.Sometimes when we see a lot of things,we are over whelmed by the beauty.

What more do we want.Let us at least leave some of these alive.The reason:- If not humans,there are so many other ways to maintain the planet,so let be us ,who maintain.We have more to loose,than to gain,so let us not loose them.
Alright,so what do you think we should do?

a few scenery,
a few machinery,
a little bit of humanity.
in the past ,
the road carried many,
in the future,it
will lead many more.
go on you road,
go on.At least remember me.
for the sake of the sake
that i took you,not just
now,but in the past as well.
live on,keep on going.
p.s.: the pictures were taken on my way back from kodai to chennai
well this one is the starting of the ghat section(on the way to kodai)
