Papikondalu trip,day 1

Hello, friends!!!! This is about the first day of our ‘two-day trip’ to Papikondalu. If you missed the introduction post for Papikondalu, find it here. You can start your trip either from Bhadrachalam or Rajamandri. It is almost equal in distance either way. We chose Bhadrachalam as it was near and was in Telangana. So, we reached Bhadrachalam after an 8 hr night journey. We took a small hotel just for freshening up. We were ready by 7 am. We called the trip organizer and he asked us to meet him at a particular place. We were the first to arrive at that place( as it happens most of the times). We had to wait for almost an hour for others to arrive and the vehicle to start.

Papikonadalu

The vehicle was simply an extended ‘auto’ which took us to a ‘Pochavaram’ village after a two-hour journey. That was the launching station for boats. The system there is very simple and disorganized. All the travel agencies hand over their poor travelers to one man who is in charge of all the boats there. So no matter with whom you booked, you end up in a huge line with others. If you are brilliant enough and know the Que dealing tactics in a country like India, you can get into a boat in few minutes. It was just ‘survival of the fittest’. There is no difference in boats as well, they are filled in ‘first come first basis’ unless AC ones. We opted Non AC as there were much freedom and space.

Breakfast was served in a haphazard way. We begun our journey at around 11:30. The journey was so…pleasent and made us forget everything else.

The boat slowly moves crossing dense jungles, tribal villages and beauty is all around. The only trouble was the blazing sun.

We spotted so many interesting things as the journey takes you to places which are not much civilized. At some point you will be at place where is no other human being(except the ones in the boat).

One hour of the journey takes you to a tribal village called Perantalla palli. A huge, old tamarind tree welcomes you. You can buy some hand made items made of bamboo. They are cute and cheap as well. There is a temple called Ramakrishna muni vatika adjoining a small waterfall where you can spend some time. You can walk into the village to get some scent of the tribal life.

The journey starts again after about 30 mins and takes you deep to a place called Papikondalu where the river Godavari has been bordered both sides by hills which make the place look like ‘Papidi’ (partition in the hair). For few minutes, I wasI was sooo exhilarated witnessing the beauty.

We halted at a place called Kolluru where lunch was served and we were going to stay there for the night. Lunch tasted good but the serving was very messy and my parents couldn’t eat.People who opted for one day trip are taken back after lunch.

Kolluru is a tribal village on the river bank. Going to our accommodation needed almost a km walking in the hot sun and near boiling sand. We were so exhausted by the time we reached our huts that we slept almost immediately. When we woke up it was about five in the evening and we went to explore the surroundings. It was still hot outside and we saw one worker dropping wood outside our huts

We asked him the reason. When he told they were for ‘bonfire’, we almost laughed. Bonfire?we were about to get fried in heat.

He simply smiled and said “Just wait and see”

We played for hours in the sand and realised it was getting cold slowly. People who came in groups were indulged in sand sports like Volleyball. There were two groups of huts, one was near the river bank and was for youngster who come with friends the second was near the village and was for families.

After the dinner, we spent some time near our personal bonfire before sleeping.

There was no mobile signal, no power point for charging,no television and it was still amazing.

Get lost in the nature : Papikondalu trip

I believe that everyone might have wondered at least once in a life time about being away from the modern concrete world.

TRip to Papikondalu

It is not as simple as we think , going back to the basic needs, minimalistic life forgetting the comforts and all . Thinking about a life without Internet,attached bathroom or electricity , simply freaks me out . But still We really wanted to experiment A  life without all these.  A short trip to  ‘ Papikondalu ‘ will free your soul from all the restrictions & bonds( though temporarily )  and make it fly like a bird . It is not just sleeping in the lap of nature ,it is about embracing it ,It is about forgetting that you had been running all your life  , you got lost in some competitive game . It is about losing yourself to nature and rediscovering your self . It is like a meditation with all your senses open .

Papikondalu trip
Papikondalu trip

God ,Even writing about the place is giving me a wordless warm feeling.

O.K ,O.K  Coming back to the trip. Papikondalu is  place of river Godavari walled both sides by foresty hills.

It is said to gain its name from their arrangement ,they are arranged in a special way in which River Godavari looks like a partition ( Maang ) between the mountains on each side, which are dark like hair .Maang or partition is called Papidi in  Telugu ,that is from where Papikondalu got its name from.

What is the Papikondalu  trip like….

There are different kinds of trips 1 day ,2 day and with different starting points.
There are many websites which organise the trips either from Bhadrachalam or Rajamandri. When you are starting from either of the above points the people (with whom you booked tour ) will take you by road to the Launch station which are at 40-60kms . From there your launch begins which takes you into deep ‘no other route available ‘ areas of Godavari.
You will travel through Godavari as it passes hills with thick forests on either side which are sparsely inhabited. The place which is called Papikondalu is some 3-4hr away from the starting point. One-day trip ends with lunch after which you are carried back to the original point. In two-day trip , after lunch you are taken to the bamboo huts in a small tribal village called ‘Kolluru’.

We took a two-day trip and had one full day free in that tiny tribal village on the banks of river Godavari.

I am going to write about the trip in detail in future posts.

Photostory :World’s largest tribal congregation -Sammakka Saralamma Jatara

Hello,  Friends !!!!! As you know I simply love to write about the local culture and festivals of Telangana. I can not ignore the recent ” Sammakka Saralamma Jatara” ‘ I don’t know whether you are aware of the fact or not, But this celebration is considered as the World’s largest tribal congregation and second largest congregation ( in general not tribal ) in India after the Maha Kumbh Mela.

It is celebrated once every 2 yrs. There is a 4-day celebration around Magha shuddha Pournami days at a tiny village  Medaram located in a dense forest. This village which inhabits around 400 people otherwise will accommodate around 10-15 Million during these 4 days. The estimated number of devotees in 2014 was about 15 Million.I have witnessed the buzz  during my medicine days. The road to Medaram during this period is sooo busy that Government announces public holiday to colleges, schools and offices which are in the route.

This festival is to get the blessings of Goddesses Sammakka, Saralamma (Mother and daughter ) who were of tribal origin.

I want to thank my friend Khaja pasha for providing these beautiful snaps.

Night in the cozy hut: Paikpndalu trip

I suddenly realized to my panic that the hut has no door.

The floor is a foot above the sand and has multiple possible openings for snakes or any crawling things to enter. No, I couldn’t sleep there, but I did.

Our stay place in our Paikonadalu trip’s night stay hut looked entirely different, by the time we came back after our “sand plays “. From outside you can see that they look like small cottages, but from inside, the huts looked sooo open, Sooo risky to spend a night in. We were 5 members and were given 2 huts . Those were nothing like I imagined them , they were elevated from the ground and had only one room. The entire floor was occupied by a thin mattress ,there was no fan ,a single zero bulb hanging from the bamboo roof and there was no door, just an opening to enter or exit. It was literally looking like a bed with four walls and roof.

Huts looked cute and comfy in the evening, like this

Sibling time- Going crazy at the campfire..

There was no power(plug)  point anywhere in the room. Only one extension box of power points near the office where everyone was in Que to charge their respective gadgets.
As it was very cold outside we spent some two-hour at the bonfire. My brother went for a stroll and caught hold of one ‘bamboo sheet’ to use as a door as I was very apprehensive for sleeping there without a door.

As I told you in my previous post, the beauty of the Papikondalu trip lies in our close association with nature. I never went for trekking or camping in the past. So, I had that understandable discomfort feeling there.
Once I was under the thick sheets, I immediately fell asleep.
It was a very new experience for me. It left me with a wish to go for some nature trips very often.

Pride of Hyderabad -Charminar

hi dearies !!!!!!I am back with the post in the ‘Amazing Hyderabad ‘ series. The very first thing I am going to talk about is obviously ‘The Charminar ‘. The reason i said ‘obviously ‘ is that Charminar is the most famous spot in Hyderabad. In childhood whenever we got a question like ‘Write about the torist places in  Hyderabad ‘ ,the list would start with Charminar . In many Telugu pictures if they want to show that any actor arrived at Hyderabad ,they would show Charminar ( symbolism ) ; Forget that ,even if you Google ‘Hyderabad ‘ ,the first page picture is of ‘Charminar’.

So I think it is appropriate to start the list with it.

Charminar

Charminar literally means ‘Four towers’ ( Char =4 ,Minar =towers )

History

charminar

Charminar was constructed in 16 th century by Mohammad Kuli Kutubshah. ( You can read his love story  & story of Hyderabad here ) . There are various theories circulating as of why it was built .Mostly accepted theory says that Charminar was built at the center of the city, to commemorate the eradication of plague”, a deadly disease which was wide spread at that time . Another theory says that it was built to celebrate the Second Islamic millennium year.

charminar

Architecture and Structure

charminar

It is of Indo-Islamic architecture style, incorporating Persian architectural elements. The main part of the structure is square with of 20 mtr height with 4 towers,each of 56mtr at each corner. The central structure has a small water body with a fountain.

The towers have steps (It is very much  strenuous to mount those steps  ,it is an extremely  dark,cozy and tight place . If one misses a step ,you can not imagine how much damage that can cause. )

The minars and the interiors at many places offer a visual feast with delicate ,fine carvings . I really advice you to visit at sunset as you can get a spectacular view of sunset over the old city of Hyderabad.

The story of Sankranthi ,part 2

Hello friend….When we talk about festivals ,we have never ending stories .I myself can write a small book on each festival.

I am trying to suppress my enthusiasm and  condense my story in these two parts. There are many things which bring the uniqueness to Sankranthi .As i already talked you about Muggulu and Gobbemma I will move on to other things like..

 

Bhogi manta

SankranthiCredit

Bhogi manta is the bonfire on the day of Bhogi . This tradition started most probably as an effort to fight the freezing temperatures. Another thing People do is to  burn old ,useless things in the bonfire. Sometimes children who want their parents to buy new things for them ,burn their old things before parents notice them .

Bhogi pallu

It is a tradition of blessing children in a small celebration . All the children from the houses nearby are invited .They have to sit tightly together while we pour a mixture of small coins,Jujube (fruits),flower petals on them .Later they are given viands .Children have attend the same thing at every house in the community . Small kids get to eat many fruits while older kids like to pick up coins.I remember carrying a bag with me in childhood to carry  viands back home.

Hari dasu

haridasuCredit

Hari dasu is an exquisitely dressed man who comes to every house while singing traditional songs . Women donate some rice to him to get his blessings .It is a profession but i do not remember when was the last time I have seen one.

Gangireddu

Sankranthi

Credit

As i told you Sankranthi is a festival of showing gratitude to Gods ,people as well as animals . How can you forget the most important friend of a farmer ,an Ox. Remember ,before the age of vehicles they used to help a lot in the field .

So during this time ,they are decorated with bunch of clothes,garlands and are called “Gangireddu” .

There is a profession in which people live with the help of Gangireddu . They can play piper and a small hand held drum.They take the decorated Ox to rich houses .They train the animals to perform small tricks like wishing ,dancing in small steps. Pleased landlords give them grain and clothes. This profession is also in the verge of extinction ,mostly because of  modernization.

 

Betting

sankranthicredit

Sankranthi is a season of betting. This is usually seen in Andhra pradesh . Bettings  involve animals ( Cock fights) which made them illegal . In spite of law ,these things are still going on and crore of money change hands . Sadly politicians and film actors also involved. Here the bettings are taken so seriously that even families are left broken ,and battles happened . ( Battle of Palanadu,for example ).

The roosters used for cock fights are considered very prestigious , the owners spend lakhs of rupees on them . They are fed with costly food,dry fruits daily.

The Story of Sankranthi ,part 1

Hello friends!!! If I have to describe India in single sentence i prfer “Nation of Festivals”  .We have many festivals and The best part is each festival is  celebrated in a unique way . Sankranthi is the festival of ‘ kites and colors’ . It is the festival of celebrating a successful ‘crop year . It is an important festival for farmer families of Andhra Pradesh where Agriculture is the main mean of living (even today) .It is celebrated at a time when they complete one crop year and ready to welcome ‘Dhanya

Lakshmi ‘ ( Goddess of grain or crop ) ;it is also a festival of showing gratitude to all those people and animals who helped in bringing the crop home. The main festival is for 3 days 1.Bhogi 2.Sankranthi 3.Kanumu.

Celebrations start few days before the main festival when women start making a huge collection of viands ( which are expected to last for few months ,so you can imagine the quantities ) .

At the time of festival the viands , new clothes and grain are distributed among the workers . Earlier when money was not that famous ,workers used to get grain that would last for a year.

The festival is also celebrated as a worship of God Indra for making the weather beneficial for crop.

 

Muggulu

You can call it Rangoli if you want ,but it is just a rough translation.There is no proper English word for it.It is the most important part of festival .They use a specially made ‘ Muggu Pindi ‘ ( type of flour ) . Muggu is both science and art .All the traditional  designs have unique number of dots and their arrangement ,if you miss a single dot ,that’s the end of it .

In villages they are decorated with mary gold Flowers and cones of cattle dung  ,called Gobbemma.

The logic behind Muggu is that the flour used for it is considered as insect and pest repellent .When farmers bring their year long hard wok as the grain and store it in specially built storage rooms at home ( Called ‘Gade’ ) , the wives decorate the surroundings with ‘muggu’ to protect the crop from uninvited guests like insects. They are filled with colors which symbolize prosperity .Even today many people believe that Goddess Lakshmi would like to come to those houses which are richly decorated with Muggulu.

Gobbemmalu ,Gobbilla patalu

Like there is no proper English word for Muggu ,there is no proper English word for Gobbemma .There cones and pyramids made of cattle dung .They are used to decorate the designs. Girls  clap and dance aroundnthem singing songs. The main content of songs is praying Goddess Lakshmi for a good husband . (Whatever a girl does before a marriage is to get a best husband  and after marriage is for longevity of the husband while guys do not need anything like this. ) As much as i hate the idea of praying for

a husband ,i love the rhythm and rhyming of the songs . If you want to hear them ,click here ..

Madam Tussauds ,Honkong

Hello Girls, Hope you all are doing good… This is Manasa, I already introduced myself with you guys in my last post… I was very glad about your views and comments on my post … Because of your encouragement I would like to share my Hong Kong Trip experience with you guys….

Travelling is a great refreshment for all, especially who love to Travel a lot like me… I really enjoyed my last year New Year trip to Madame Tussauds, Hong Kong.

It was nice experience to watch wax statues and Victoria peak.

Why Madame Tussauds got so much of popularity?

Being  common people we don’t get any opportunity to meet the famous person.

Every one dreams to take a snap with their favorite star, celebrity or a leader .

This is the only place where we feel that the famous people are waiting for us to take a snap.

You don’t believe!! It’s difficult to distinguish it’s a Wax Statue or a real person.

We actually need to touch them to make the difference.

It’s a great work by the Madame Tussauds and highly appreciated..

To visit Madame Tussauds we need to travel to the Victoria peak by Tram.

Tussauds

 

Peak Tram takes you to the Victoria Peak. Though private vehicle is an alternate transport option but by Tram it’s a good experience.

Tussauds

 

New year time is a celebration time.It was really  crowded and it took 3 hours for our turn. The traveling time will be around 10-15 minutes.

Tussauds

We reached Victoria Peak around 5 PM…

 

Here comes the Madam Tussauds museum

As it is too difficult to share every photo I decided to share few important ones.

Amazing Hyderabad : A New Series

Hyderabad is the hot topic in this post. Few days ago I saw a news that Nat Geo website has listed Best 20 trips for 2015 and guess what ? Hyderabad is one of them . (Read the entire post here)  Like everyone else from Telangana I was super happy and super excited ,then I realized that i have never considered writing about Hyderabad .Telangana Talli (mother of Telanagana) will never forgive me .As it happens we really take the things at hand for granted .So i decided to do a series of posts about this city .

Hyderabad

I really understand the fact the everyone goes crazy about their respective places and that is quiet common. Like every other city on earth  this city also has its own special history.The history of Hyderabad literally has a special place in Indian history. If you remember from your childhood Hyderabad was made a part of India only by force which is called as ‘Police Action ‘.

The merging of Hyderabad in to India is a history itself.I really do not want to go in depth coz it needs several posts.

The thing that needs to be mentioned is  about ‘Bhagamathi’. Some people might know that the city Hyderabad is called ‘Bhagya Nagaram’ . It is said that the name took origin from the name of queen Bhagamathi who married Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah in 16th century. Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah was the the fifth sultan of the Qutb Shahi dynasty, son of Ibraham qutub shah . He fell in love with  a brahmin dancer called Bhagamathi . He used to swim across the river Musi to visit her daily even on those days when the river was roaring. The sulthan (his father ) came to know about this and built a bridge across the river. Later when they got married Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah started building  a city called Bhagyanagar ..(Muhammad Quli Qutb Shah  was the founder of Hyderabad ) .Later when she became Hyder mahal ( Her muslim name) Bhagyanagaram had become Hyderabad.

Is not it extremely romantic ? almost a fairy tale !!!

I had been hearing this story since childhood till the time when the historians gave me a shock of life time by announcing

that ‘ Bhagamathi might be a myth as well as the love story’ . The discussion is still on, but for time being i am believing in Bhagamathi.

All i wanted to tell you finally is that i want to start a series on Hyderabad and I lost my track .

But I am really excited to start this,tell me if you want to know specifically about any place in Hyderabad.

Hi Guys !! This is the last post of my Goa outfit series . That day we planned a road trip to an unknown place called Tiracol Fort.If you want to read the full story of the journey ,click here-Journey to the less known Tiracol Fort, Goa

The morning was slightly chilly and considering the long road journey I chose a very simple and light outfit . I added a blazer which could be taken off anytime. As i expected it again became sunny and i had to remove my blazer .

I really like neon colors as they have some bright cheering up effect. The neon yellow (bright lemon yellow is my all time favorite. I have many pieces in that color.The blazer went well with the Lip T shirt . The blue necklace complemented the yellow

blazer and matched the T shirt. The yellow gladiator sandals were my favorite.

Outfit details :

Yellow blazer, lip t shirt – dresslink.com
Denim shorts – recycled from old jeans.
Blue necklace – Addons
Yellow gladiator – done by none.

Hope you like the outfit. If you do please comment and share.
