Skywatch Friday

Skywatch Friday – A Ladakh sight near home!

Written by Poorna & Brinda
A raised high ground.
Surrounded by rich green corn fields.
The golden turrets of the monastery glowing in the afternoon sun.
Overcast sky.
The contrast was striking!
The setting looked almost the one you see in Ladakh.
Clouds in place of snow clad mountains and corn fields replacing barley fields.
The Monastery was magnificent.
But this was closer home. In Bylakuppe. In Karnataka which has the largest Tibetan settlement. We have been to this place many times. The drive from highway to golden temple is always a lovely sight. Especially in the months of August – September when the vast fields of corn stalks standing shoulder high on the undulating terrain. Miles and miles of it. All due to hard work by the Tibetans.
We stopped on the road when we noticed this. It looked as if we were in Ladakh. But closer home!

We are Brinda and Poorna from Bengaluru, the “Silicon city” or “Garden city” of India.

We travel together. We caught the travel bug 20 years back. On our honey moon, we traveled over the sea, in the train, by bus and in an aircraft! Our adventures probably started in that year. It continues, ever since.
