by the araLikaTTe

My department lies beside the araLikaTTe, in one corner of Manasagangotri. As in, it is at a stone's throw from my department.

Mysuru is hot and humid, according to me. I now, say that i've adjusted to the climate.

It is also a favorite hang-out of ours. We chit-chat there, our lunch boxes are opened under it's shade, a few ladies from my class practised a song at the araLikaTTe. I'm already showing it some affection. Is it because of it's close proximity to our dept.? Perhaps, that is the reason.

The araLikaTTe is something that i really like about that place. It's supposed to be a century old, and bears some historical significance. Nevertheless, it remains one of the places to be in. In my regards.

Mysore is one of my favourite places in Karnataka...
I always feel it has some kind of calmness and serenity...

Don't ever go near tht Aralikatte...
They are all haunted ... aatmas are seen hanging upside down during nights from the arali tree...
This has been proven using Newtons fourth law

Very nice... thats how u develop a kind of attachment with a place... When you are out in hte wild world, you will see something pulling towards Mysore, and that would be an araLi kaTTe.

Nice read SK :-)
