Some interesting story thought of sharing it on my blog:
One day, a rich dad took his son on a trip. Wanted to show him how poor someone can be. They spent time on the farm of a poor family. On the way home, dad asked, "Did you see how poor they are? What did you learn?".
Son said, "We have one dog, they have four, we have pool, they have rivers, we have lanterns at night, they have stars, we buy foods, they grow theirs, we have walls to protect us, they have friends, we have encyclopedias, they have Bible." Then they headed, "Thanks dad for showing me how poor we are."
MORAL LESSON: It's not about money that make us rich, it's about simplicity of having God in our lives.

I was asked by the corporate team of my company to share/write anything on any place which I have visited as a tourist or as a trekker. I choose Western Ghats as a whole and wrote a very small article on that. And here it goes....
Tired of city life?
If I ask this question to a dozen of my friends I get a common answer as 'YES'. Well for that matter everyone including me are tired of the city life which makes us to be always busy in one or the other way. I choose TREKKING to boost my mood and to have some excitement in the life. Trekking is not only a great way to get fit, it's also a way to expand your circle of friends, explore new places and cherish those moments for long.
Western Ghats - A Trekkers Paradise
Western Ghats of South India will always be in the top of my list when it comes to decide on venue for a weekend hangout.
The green carpet made of those grass lands, Beautiful water falls, Breath taking views from the peaks, Thick vegetation, Flora and Fauna of Western Ghats made it so special to me. There are many beautiful water falls among which mostly are unexplored and are ready to explore by the nature enthusiasts/trekkers. Western Ghats has a range starting from 1200 meters to 2700 meters above MSL.
Mullaiyana Giri, Bababudan Giri, Tadiandanmol, Kumaraparvatha, Amedikallu, Kuduremukha, Narasimha Parvatha, Ethina Buja, Deepada Kallu, Jenu Kallu, Ombattu Gudda are the main peaks which attract more trekkers in Karnataka. Mukurthi National Park in Tamil Nadu and Silent Valley Nation Park in Kerala are the other main trekking spots in south India and of course the list goes on. The above are the famous trekking spots among trekkers. Among these Ana Mudi (in Kerala) which is at 2695 meters above MSL is the highest peak of western Ghats of India.
Mullaiyana Giri is the highest peak of Karnataka standing at a height of 1600 meters above MSL. Its one among the popular trekking destination after Kumaraparvatha in Karnataka because of the easy way of reaching the trekking start points.
How to reach:
Most of the trekking start points to the peaks mentioned above are a overnight journey away from Bangalore on road. All are perfect weekend gateways for a 2 day hangout.
Its always important that we should not litter the place where we go and should reserve for the future visitors and we believe in the words "When you go to the mountain leave only your footprints and bring back only memories”

Once a man was waiting for a taxi. A beggar came along and asked him for some money. The man ignored him. But being a professional, the beggar kept on pestering him. The man became irritated when he realized that the beggar would not leave him alone
unless he parts with some money.
Suddenly an idea struck him. He told the beggar, "I do not have money, But if you tell me what you want to do with the money, I will certainly help you." "I would have bought a cup of tea", replied the beggar. The man said, "Sorry man. I can offer you a cigarette instead of tea".
He then took a pack of cigarettes from his pocket and offered one to the beggar. The beggar told, "I don't smoke as it is injurious to health."
The man smiled and took a bottle of whisky from his pocket and told the beggar, "Here, take this bottle and enjoy the stuff. It is really good". The beggar refused by saying, "Alcoho muddles the brain and damages the liver". The man smiled again.
He told the beggar, "I am going to the race course.Come with me and I will arrange for some tickets and we will place bets. If we win, you take the whole amount and leave me alone". As before, the beggar politely refused the latest offer by saying, "Sorry sir, I can't come with you as betting on horses is a bad habit."
Suddenly the man felt relieved!! and asked the beggar to come to his home with him. Finally, the beggar's face lit up in anticipation of receiving at least something from the man. But he still had his doubts and asked the man, "Why do you want me to go to your house with you".
The man replied....
"My wife always wanted to see how a man with no Bad habits looks like"

In a poor zoo of India , a lion was frustrated as he was offered not more than 1 kg meat a day.
The lion thought its prayers were answered when one US Zoo Manager visited the zoo and requested the zoo management to shift the lion to the US Zoo.
The lion was so happy and started thinking of a central A/c environment, a goat or two every day and a US Green Card also. On its first day after arrival,the lion was offered a big bag, sealed very nicely for breakfast.
The lion opened it quickly but was shocked to see that it contained few bananas. Then the lion thought that may be they cared too much for him as they were worried about his stomach as he had recently shifted from India .
The next day the same thing happened. On the third day again the same food bag of bananas was delivered.
The lion was so furious, it stopped the delivery boy and blasted at him, 'Don't you know I am the lion...king of the Jungle..., what's wrong with your management?, what nonsense is this?, why are you delivering bananas to me?'
The delivery boy politely said, 'Sir, I know you are the king of the jungle but .. Did you know that you have been brought here on a monkey's visa!!!
Moral of Story : Better to be a Lion in India than a Monkey elsewhere!!!!
