Chikmagalur – the family estate to be precise, is the next best thing after my home in Mangalore. Reconnecting with our estate in Mallandur, 20 kms. from Chikmagalur, was literally a breath of fresh air. My journey, mid-December, to the estate brought back strong childhood memories, specially considering the fact that we were moving from the 75+ year old ancestral house to the 20 year old ‘new’ bungalow on our side of the estate.
I snapped quite a few pics during our one day stay in the estate. As I said earlier, it did bring back some wonderful memories and I promised myself that the next stay would be longer.
