It was early in the morning when I got a call from my ajji (grandmother) who stays in Lakkavalli, Chikkamagaluru district, and asked me to come visit her. When your grandmother calls you know that it's time to get pampered with good food away from all the buzz in a metropolitan city like Bangalore. I immediately booked a train ticket and went solo to my native.
Here's a bit of info about my native: it is at the heart of Malanad of Karnataka, known for its beautiful wildlife, greenery, Tungabadhra backwaters, and the Bhadra Dam. The Tungabhadra is a huge river that flows between Karnataka and Andhra Pradesh. The river eventually joins the Krishna river.
