Bangalore to Puttaparthi

I had reasonably good sleep yesterday. All the hotels/restaurants get closed at Puttaparthi at 9.30 p.m. After writing in my blog I went for food around 9.30 p.m. but could not get anything to eat. I ended up the day with some biscuits, badam and chocolates that I was carrying with me. Drank 1/2 ltr of water.

After having gone yesterday night w/o food I was hungry this morning and some heavy breakfast. The area in and around ashram is quite congested. Inside ashram also there are people everywhere. Huge hall in the ashram which can accommodate around 5000 people was 3/4th full. You can not carry mobile /camera / pen inside the hall and need to deposit at the security. There is strict frisking while you enter the hall.

I shall visit now few other locations in and around here and then have lunch around 12.30 p.m. as my bus for Bangalore leaves at 1.30 p.m. Of course bus stand is very close to where I am staying. The only hassle is I need to get my Cynthia down from 2nd floor. Yesterday, the lodge person by the name Anjaneya had helped in bringing up Cynthia and I had comfortable stay and sleep as I did not have to worry about her safety. Today also I shall use the services of Anjaneya to bring Cynthia down.

KSRTV Volvo bus leaving at 1.30 p.m. should reach Bangalore around 5 p.m. I shall see if I can get down at Hebbal instead of at Kempe Gowda bus stand. From Hebbal I plan to cycle back to my home in Whitefield.
