A walk through woods in early winter has you breathing in the purest air known to mankind. City is now distant blur. Noises of traffic, phone, doorbell, or marketplace, all cancelled out from one's consciousness. So you notice... floating clouds, hues of green, Quietness. Western Ghats. Mangalore. Coorg. Pristine.

Amidst the hills that create the River.
Trekked uphill labouriously, over large stony steps, one has a faint hope of encountering a bit of divine up there. Disappointment. But the view from up there, that is magical.
Kaveri / Cauvery is a big river. Big enough to create trouble over sharing of her waters between two large states. But at its point of origin its a modest, peaceful continuous stream.
Quite in keeping with India's ancient traditions, the River is feminine and deified as a goddess. She, who ensures bounties of sustenance for humans. Sit on the stairs, pray, meditate, or just watch her flow gently before you.
