Check out these 8 Government Loan Schemes That You Can Benefit From As A Woman In Business.
This little slice of Tibet lives hidden in a corner of Karnataka, in the lush and beautiful Coorg, or Kodagu district. A photo and video blog.
This post is written as part of a series where bloggers on Women’s Web experiment with the new, handy Dell Venue tab, and use it for various work and leisure activities as part of their daily lives.
We were on our way to Coorg from Bangalore on a spontaneous road trip. Cruising along State Highway 88 in Karnataka we noticed two Tibetan monks on a scooter. After a short distance, we saw fluttering Tibetan prayer flags. Hmmm, Tibet must be nearby but high school geography told me otherwise.
A little further and we came upon a gateway to the Golden Temple and a little town called Bylakuppe which is home to the second largest Tibetan settlement in India. This town lies nestled between Mysore and Coorg and resides beside its twin city Kushalnagar. The tall Nilgiris and wide farms lie sprawled across the land on the way to the Namdroling Monastery also known as the golden temple.
The first glimpse of the temple made me check Google maps on the Dell Venue tablet, just in case we had been teleported from Coorg to Tibet. The temple is built with beautiful golden arcs and Tibetan motifs. The monastery houses 7000 Tibetan monks and nuns and is central to the settlement.
The temple was having 15 day long prayers and chanting the day we visited and we were able to hear the soothing tranquil Buddhist chants. Driving from Coorg, it is almost dramatic when paddy fields and tobacco plantations give way to the Tibetan settlement in Bylakuppe.
Bylakuppe has schools, fields, small restaurants, a market and is a flourishing township. The restaurants have Tibetan and Coorg food on their menu which speaks in volumes about the unique culture in Bylakuppe. The golden temple or Namdroling Monastery attracts tourists and pilgrims in good numbers.
Namdroling will always remain a wonderful unplanned surprise I encountered en route to Coorg.
I am sharing here a video of the Buddhist monks chanting, as well as some photos that I took using the Dell Venue tablet.
With the tablet as companion, every traveller can now easily maintain a digital diary, and curate her own travel experiences, with the camera on the device acting as a beautiful way to capture these memories!

Chetan Bhagat had no business slut shaming Uorfi Javed or any other woman. If he wants to 'guide' young men in the 'right direction' then he should take accountability for his words.
Chetan Bhagat, one of India’s bestselling authors, thought it was an ingenious idea to slut-shame Uorfi Javed, an Indian actress and influencer, at the Sahitya Aaj Tak literature festival.
“Phone has been a great distraction for the youth, especially the boys, spending hours just watching Instagram Reels. Everyone knows who Uorfi Javed is. What will you do with her photos? Is it coming in your exams or you will go for a job interview and tell the interviewer that you know all her outfits? On one side, there is a youth who is protecting our nation at Kargil and on another side, we have another youth who is seeing Uorfi Javed’s photos hiding in their blankets.”
Uorfi Javed responded with a video on her Instagram stories calling out Bhagat’s bluff. She shared the screenshots of his previous chat conversations with Ira Trivedi, author and yoga instructor, which came to light during the #MeToo movement.
While boys are taught to naturally own the space they enter, girls are taught to give up, to accommodate, to adjust since "it is their primary responsibility to keep families and relations together."
Yesterday, I was watching these 4 young girls around 16 – 17 years old play badminton. They were having fun, goofing around with all 4 of them equally involved in the game.
In some time two of their male friends joined them, and as part of round robin, the 2 boys replaced two of the girls. All good.
As the play continued, I started noticing a change in the way the game was being played. The shuttle was played most of the times between the two boys and there was a sense of competition and aggression brought in. The other 2 girls playing soon starting losing interest in the game as they hardly got any game time. Even if the shuttle came towards them, the boy in their team would move and play that shot. They soon moved to the sidelines as the boys continued to play.
