Bengaluru’s art and culture festival brings the artistes all over the world to perform here. The passes for this festival are free and is available at the venue or AFFA office. Last year it didn’t happen and was postponed due to various reasons. As a part of Finale, music live show, DJ etc were organized. Yesterday there was live show by band called Strings . It was awesome show where they played most of their hit numbers. At last they also played remix of old and new hindi songs. Have watched lot of live shows and for the first time, saw lot of family crowd enjoying the show. Kudos to organizers for organizing such a wonderful event.

Sakleshpur is one of the greenest getaways in Karnataka and famous for the railway track trek. Eventhough had been to this place a couple of times, couldn’t resist this opportunity to chill out on a weekend. After long discussions and mail chains we zeroed out to go to Makkithitta HomeStay near Sakleshpur. Sakleshpur is 6 hrs drive from Bangalore and we started at 12.00 am from Bangalore after having a bash at sarathy, Indira Nagar. There was no traffic inside city and stopped at a Dhaba after Nellamangala to have some food around 1′ o clock.
Reached Sakleshpur around 5:30 and the home stay people has arranged a jeep to show way till home stay. The way was very bad and our vehicle found difficult to catch the speed of jeep. We reached there around 6:30. They arrangements made was good.
Jeep was arranged to see nearby places since most of them were jeep tracks. Visited Bettadha Byraveshwara Temple and did a small trek to near by view point.
Returned back had lunch and slept afternoon. At night campfire was arranged. Played Sach ka saamna and bum charades. Next day morning we went to nearby stream to have bath and retuned back bangalore after lunch. On the way back visited Manjirabad fort near Donigal. Took tea at the same shop where we had tea when we went for Sakleshpur trek two years back.
