Riding from Agumbe to Thirthalli having a heavy breakfast and contuining further we reached Shimoga at 12:45PM. Midday heat hit us badly and the engines started overheating. The trail from Shimoga to Chiradurga is like a small glimpse of Thar Desert .Landscapes change.Water bodies do not exist,mountains are rocky and roads are covered with mirages.
We finally reached Tumkur around 6pm and continued towards Bangalore.Straight roads had no hidden treasures,the trucks honking making their way to the IT capital of India. OH Bangalore.Home again at 9PM reached our ADDA where my friend who missed out on the trip was waiting to receive us. We chatted for a while and left home.
The eve of new year when Bangalore celebrated we slipped into a deep sleep treasuring our sunburn and saddle sores, laughing at our rowdy attitudes but yet conquering 1555 km on the saddle not an achievement but an experience from which one can learn a lot and yet another feather in the cap.
Oh Bangalore!!Home!! or is it really??Answering this has always been a tough question.
Looking back at the last year there are somethings to treasure and others to bury and build a tomb of.Nevertheless,life shall move on and status quo be maintained. A small verse about my experience with the truth.
Lost without you in this wilderness,
All that is left is bitterness.
I see you when I count the stars
Looks like it was a bad dream in the morning hours
In this journey towards the UNKOWN we severed our paths,
I shall see where the road takes me now as am barely scathed
Cuz for all I know am not beaten
I have got a devil’s soul and I shall take the path less taken.
