The Hidden Castle! Is most enjoyable!







Enjoyed yesterday, 20th August 2017, a daylong stay at the Hidden Castle! Every moment was joyous for our group of twenty, right from the time our journey started! The Castle and the vast greenery all around us and even under our feet was a feast to our senses.
There was plenty of entertainment at the Castle, that which was available there – adventurous, playful and magical and the entertainment pre-planned and enjoyed on our own. Every single moment was fun. With so much activity we obviously craved for food and it was available there in plenty and to our entire satisfaction.
As a bonus the weather was most pleasant for an outing with cool breeze throughout the day. Though monsoon season is in full swing in this area for the past few days, it has not played spoilsport with us today.
Thanks to my brother-in-law, Sri. K. Niranjan who sponsored this wonderful trip.
Here are some photographs and three videos to give you a glimpse of our memorable expedition to the Hidden Castle and this post is also for recording it into my journal – my blog!

Kamadhenu – the sacred cow which grants all wishes and desires!







Universally it is a well known fact that Hindus venerate and worship cows.  Cows are considered as eternal sustainers of humanity because of their nourishing feature, in so many different ways…lovingly in one way to its calf but in many ways to humanity.    
Since the beginning of Hindu civilization cows have been very sacred to us. The Vedas and the epics depict this importance in detail.  They are venerated like a mother. Until recent past most Hindu households had at least one cow, well looked after and worshipped.
This article is about Kamadhenu, the mother of all cows. It is known by many names and one such popular name is Surabhi.  Kamadhenu cow is believed to fulfill all desires as per many scriptures and personal experiences of many. Idols and pictures of Kamadhenu, the mother cow with its calf, at home or at work place, are believed to be very auspicious, as they symbolize prosperity, good health and wealth and grant wishes. You can see some images of Kamadhenu in the attached pictures.
