81. Noodles

That evening I went to the terrace of our building after a long time.
It was pleasant, cool and beautiful. I started walking.
When I approached the corner, I saw this.

Indian Noodles.
They are generally testy.

What about hygiene though? Is there not a better way to sun-dry those?

80. Bhuleshwar

The Mumbai Bhuleshwar temple is famous.
But there is another Bhuleshwar temple. This is near Pune.
For years I have been planning to visit this temple, in October I had a chance to visit this temple.
As I was visiting with the Bird Watching Group, this visit was very brief, but long enough to impress me.

As the name suggests, it is a Shiva temple.

From a distance, the temple looks like this.

The left most shikhar is  renovated. You can compare the old with the new.

Nandi always accompanies Shiva. We find him here too.

Observe the fine artwork on the body of this auspicious bull.

And the destroyed sculptures tell us story, if we want to listen.

If you plan to visit this place, keep enough time to observe and listen and ponder over how times change.

As I said earlier, since the primary purpose of our visit to the area was bird watching, we spent more time in watching the spotted owlets on the tree outside the temple, than 'seeing' the temple.

However, there is always next time.

79. Avocado

In the market, my colleague was purchasing some fruits.
"What is it?" I asked.
Because she recommended it, I too purchased it.
I was in the new land and needed as much exploration and experimentation.
The first impression was not very good, I must say.

Opened it, rather cut it.

Tested it. It was good. Liked it.

Avocado. I must look more for more of it here!
