Game of chess

EDIT

Politics as played out in Maharashtra recently has proven once more to be the most unpredictable of games, with each player shrewder than the next, and just when one heaved a sigh of relief that finally the suspense and drama was over and some leadership established, along came someone else and pulled the rug from under the feet to overturn everything yet again. Check? Checkmate!

Politics seems to be a game with no rules…

But unlike chess or any other respectable human activity, politics seems to be a game with no rules, with each player merrily inventing the rules as they go along. Anything goes, and everyone goes (to wherever the carrot is). Shakespeare comes to mind: All the world’s a stage And all the men and women merely players; They have their exits and their entrances; And one man in his time plays many parts… Until it comes to: Last scene of all, That ends this strange eventful history… Sort of like life really, if you think about it.

GETTING AROUND TOWN

Tour operators, forex, visa assistance, helplines...

B

engaluru is a traveller’s delight. It starts with the air conditioned Volvo buses and the pre-paid taxi counter at the airport. Not to mention, the pre-paid auto counters at the city’s railway stations. But the finest example is the ease with which you can navigate the central business district of MG Road and around with the Big 10 buses. You can hop on and hop off at any point after your shopping expedition. But the finest experience will be the first reach of the Namma Metro train running from Old Madras Road to MG Road. Happy travels.

W

ith Bengaluru, the sobriquets keep getting added up. From Air Conditioned City to Aviation Capital to Garden City, this small town turned technopolis has added a new word to the American lexicon: ‘Bangalored’. It means ‘to lose one’s job’ as a result of off shoring work to India. That’s not all. The city is emerging as a medical tourism hub in India by offering ‘First World Service at Third World Cost’. What’s more, the best and the brightest multinationals are spicing up the retail scene by test-marketing large format stores like Reebok, Levi’s, Adidas, Esprit and Nautica. It’s become a ‘yuppie heaven’. Now that’s yet another sobriquet for the city. With the Metro Rail opening in phases, things are getting better by the day. Visit the city and be bowled over.

HIT THE HIGH NOTES Pubs, clubs, lounge bars...

T

he city is famous for its bars and pubs. It’s called the Beer Capital of India. With good reason. But the best reason to pub hop? It’s cosmopolitan crowd and the niche pubs that serve a select clientele. There are lounge spaces for the ladies, retro lovers and jazz enthusiasts. Not to mention, resto-bars, sports bars, roof-top bars, hookah bars, dance bars and cigar lounges for the casual and adventurous. Not to mention, the city’s first wine boutique pub. Reason enough to rewind, reboot and restart. •Alcohol may not be served at some of these places, as per Supreme Court regulation. Please call the pub/restaurant to confirm. BENGALURU

engaluru is a metaphor of an India that has arrived on the global scene. And this begins with worldclass self-sustaining ‘mixed use’ townships. Not to mention, smart digital homes that let you control your household appliances, lights and even the garage door from the comfort of your office. All you need to do is press a button or swipe a card. That’s making the most of smart technology where Wi-Fi enabled houses can automatically take care of all your household needs like dusting, cooking, laundry, bathroom, security and entertainment. You can not only watch what’s happening at home through Wi-Fi enabled webcams but also control the temperature of your fridge and microwave. This is your very own Utopia. Make the most of it.

Historical temples, beaches & more HEAD OUT TO GOKARNA BY THE KARWAR COAST, AN ALL-IN-ONE HOLIDAY DESTINATION BY SMITI JAIN NARAYAN

F

ar from the madding crowds, on the western coast of Karnataka, lies Gokarna that makes for a perfect getaway for the entire family. This small unspoiled town is a temple town and holiday destination rolled into one. A town of contrasts, Gokarna on the one hand is known as one of the seven important Hindu pilgrimage centres. And on the other, you have unspoiled beaches, full of coconut, banana and other trees, blue seas and clean sands, along the Karwar coast by the Arabian Sea. Religious significance Located near the estuary of river Aghanashini, the town is a centre of pilgrimage with a great number of devotees visiting to worship Lord Shiva. The Lord Shiva deity in the main temple is also known as Mahabhaleshwara. This temple houses what is believed to be the original image of Lord Shiva’s lingam, or the atmalinga. Several other temples also dot this small town. 90 | DECEMBER FIRST HALF| 2019

Beached landscapes The drive up the winding path that leads to Gokarna is scenic, with rocky mountains and the Western Ghats on one side, and the Arabian Sea on the other. Swaying palm trees, colourful tropical fruit and flower trees add to its natural beauty. The main Gokarna beach with its fine white sand forms the coast of the town and is followed by the long, open main beach which is popular with surfers. Kuddle and Om beaches are around 6 km from Gokarna town and the best way to get there is by rickshaw or on foot. Half Moon and Paradise beaches are beyond Om beach and are accessible only by foot or boat. Nirvana beach is accessible by boat and road from Kumta town. Interestingly, Om beach gets its name from its shape which looks like the auspicious Om symbol. Historical legacy Culturally, Gokarna is considered an important centre of Sanskrit learning and houses the Bhandikeri Math and the Toggu Math. It is a place where Sanskrit knowledge is passed down the generations in Brahmin families. Many Hindus also come here to perform last rites. Gokarna finds mention in the Shrimad Bhagavata Purana as being the home of two brothers Gokarna and Dhundhakari and their exploits. Historically speaking, a sect of Brahmins fled from Gomantak to escape forcible conversions by the Portuguese and the British, and settled in and around Gokarna in the 15th century which was part of the Sodhe and Vijayanagar kingdoms. Later, when the Konkan region was occupied by the Portuguese, it became part of their rule. Get away to Gokarna for an unusual mix of spirituality, leisure and history.
