We had a weeklong vacation for Kannada Rajyothava and Deepavali. After returning from Sira, rest of the days was spent at home relaxing. I painted this peacock for a friend who expressed a desire to have one of my paintings.

My bush beans have yielded several pods and the Sevanthige flowers have blossomed all together.

After playing shuttle badminton all day Wednesday (3rd) at a friend’s township indoor stadium, I set off on a long drive to Coimbatore on Thursday morning. It was surprising to find the roads so well (4 lane) from Bangalore to almost near Avinashi. The roads are very good and it reminded me of my drives in the US, I covered the 350KMs in 6 hours with only two stops, one for breakfast and other for fuel.

Captured some fireworks from the terrace.

Malampuzha dam (near palghat) is a nice place with some spectacular view of the Western Ghats.
