Jazbaa


Though not a powerful comeback as anticipated, it was good to watch Aishwarya after a long gap. Irrfan Khan at his best like always.

Neerja


Sonam has done completely done justice to Neerja Bhanot playing her role. 
Good to know Neerja Bhanot is alive in text books of primary schools encouraging young Indians towards patriotism.

Close to Krishnarajendra market stands this beautiful summer palace of Tippu. One of the must see places if you reside in Bangalore.



View of Palace
The entire palace is built of teak wood, stone and plaster, laid on a stone plinth. It is a two storied building, upper chambers and balconies can be accessed by four staircases.

Ragigudda Sri Prasanna Anjaneyaswamy Temple

One of the beautiful temples in Bangalore located at 9th Block Jayanagar. It is believed that a big heap of Ragi millet turned out to become a stone , hence the name Ragigudda.

                                                                   Way to temple

Though the temple is dedicated to Hanuman, this also hosts Shivaling, Rama, Lakshmana, Seeta along with small temples for Lord Ganesha, Navagrahas, Rajarajeshwari at the base of the hillock.

Exhibition and workshop at Venkatappa Art Gallery

Attended a workshop " Understanding Art" by Shivanand Basavanthappa at Venkatappa Art Gallery, Bengaluru.

On display were the paintings by about 25 artists. It was nice to hear explanation of each art by the show curator Usha, an artist herself.

Such exhibitions really inspire one to bring out the artist within.
