Moon was peeking in to our tent all through the night, though could regain senses only after it getting too cold in the tent. Eagerly waiting for the Sunrise, the clock wasn’t moving at all. One by one, Ravi , Aravind went out to check if the sun had come out, but later decided to click snaps from inside the tent only . Finally got to see some sunrise, some clicks and some stunts started our day. Meanwhile Nachu, Harish had started cooking Maggi, improvising a stick as the spoon, Maggi was getting ready. One sip at the Maggi, “God, Maggi never tasted so good ” After one more round of Maggi, cleaned the place, rolled the tents and the bags are packed and ready. All the overnight crowd had alredy packed up and moved down the parvatha, except for a few. Came down to the stagnant water, Nachu, Ravi finished the daily chores, and soon Aravind too downloaded some data . Ravi was very happy getting down, since all the food had been eaten, and the water to be carried is calculated as 2ltrs till BatreMane. Lazily getting down the peak, Happy that we had done the trek and at the same time sad that its completing so fast. Had nice company with Aravind with all the wisdom he has gained by getting married. Clicked many snaps on the way back, drank nice cool water at the mantap and hit Batremane at 12. Thought getting down was easier than trekking up , but Alas….. getting down put all the body weight on the knees which started paining. Had “Uppittu ” at Batremane, saw a huge s/w crowd waiting for the food to get ready. Nachu, Ravi , Aravind then decided to push off to kukke at travel back to Bangalore at the earliest. Nachu met his friend Om after some 6 years, and were exchanging all the enquiries and all. Aravind was the first to reach Kukke and Ravi second, Nachu blabbering along with his friend reached late at 3:30. Soon highfives all around “We did it !! ” “ yeh , Gimme more …..” Amazing experience, with a heavy day 1 and a relaxed day 2. Took a auto to the hotel where car is parked, dumped the luggage and hit a hotel to eat . Pakoda, Slice, Poori , coffe … were absorbed in no time, Fusion hit the road way back to Bangalore, with loads of memories and cramps, pains and sweat we left Kukke to Bangalore.
Fighting Fusion through the Shiradi ghats, reached Sakaleshpur to have a early dinner at around 6pm. Harish was out from the word Go and Aravind had to sleep for a while to be able to drive again. Ravi is the Man behind the steering tonight and Nachu the co-driver, picked up conversation and the destination Bangalore arrived in notime. Nachu is one interesting character, and Ravi tooo, talked ant the Painting stories, love stories….. dance interests, and Nachus Frog, skull , XXX stories…… Reached Bangalore in notime, said goodbyes to Nachu and Aravind, took nice hot bath and hit the Bed.
