Just receive a sms from durgesh that he got the delivery of his new bike(Hero Karizma ) & invited me for a test ride. So we head out of town to my favorite  stretch of highway (hosur road ) . I could feel the feel the surge of acceleration (and the surge of adrenalin!). Had my lunch at A2B & saw a sign post of shoolagiri town . As i had heard about this perfect week end get away which is located in Hosur taluk,in one of the bikenomads meet went ahead . The place got its name from the hill appearing as the trident weapon or trishul of Lord Shiva and hence it is  known as Shoolagiri (shoola – trident, giri – hill).Asking the villager we got the way to the dam . Both of us discussed of our school days & fun time we had spent in hirakud dam area . Dark clouds in the horizon . We bid au revoir to this serene place .
