I came to Bangalore in 1974 and from 1980 onwards I started visiting Savandurga. I see these photos and I am overjoyed. How many times I have visited I have lost count? But every step I have walked on this monolithic hill is etched in my memory.It is a far cry from the Rohtang Pass, Kulu and Manali - which I traversed when I was a student. But this is the best that there is and - all the more reason to save it from encroachers and developers. I stopped going to Savandurga primarily because I couldn't stand `vanishing' water creeks - beautiful trees. The pain was too much.I must tell you about a tree which was like a pregnant woman - we used to see this when we used to climb from Chiktore upwards to savandurga. We all used to hug it and say `MOTHER'. One day it was no more there. After that I never visited SAVANDURGA again.
Wow!! You are a veteran ...I was just a 10 year old when you started visiting Savandurga. I love the place so much I used to visit when ever I took fancy.I agree with you all this so called "development" is nothing but destruction of Earth.By chance have you taken pictures during those days? I would love to see them. I absolutely love the place!!
