    The water will be stored in feeder dams like Chakra/Savehaklu/Mani etc , which will in turn supply water to Linganamakki for power generation.

    Always back your bike into the curb and sit where you can see it.

    Only a biker knows why a dog sticks its head out of the window.

    Very nice places and good photos too! Kavishaila looks beautiful and now I want to visit that place once. Looks like you guys had a tough but awesome time in the mud! Good to see the coimbatoreans stamping their '2 stroke' authority once again!
