ASHOK: Hahahaaa....yes....the water was just red because of the soil, but looked clean! The whole area was clean...Table land, this area is called, near Mahabaleshwar, Maharashtra. Lot of grass was there for them to graze.

Personifies the erumai madu nature. Enjoying a dip even in the muddy water without a care. And that is the kind of attitude one needs to develop - letting the good and bad to slide off the thick skin and be unperturbed, serene even!

Usha Pisharody said...

Ah! The bliss of a slushy mud bath :) If only one could be replete with such simple pleasures in life :)
Happy new year, in advance, Sandhya :)

Sandhya said...

sm: Thank you, sm! Happy New Year to you too! Be happy always!


ZEPHYR: You are right, Zephyr! I am trying to learn it slowly! They looked very lazy and happy! We were just standing there and watching them! No trees were there, just a meadow! Many sheeps were also there. And horses to take tourists for a round. They were pestering everybody! But we enjoyed!

Happy New year to you and your family! Be happy always!


USHA PISHARODY: Hahahaaaa....really...the red mud water was clean. No smells. They were enjoying bathing and we enjoyed watching them in the hot sun! I have photos standing beside them too, but with cows!

Happy New Year to you and your family, Usha...special wishes to Nainu!

Table land? Interesting info Sandhya

Sandhya said...

DESTINATION INFINITY: Yes, Rajesh! It was very hot on that day and these were enjoying here!


ASHOK: Yes, Table land. This hilly place is flat on top. Wikimapia says: Table Land: This flat large expanse of laterite rock is the second longest mountain plateau in Asia. Some spacious caves including the “Devil's Kitchen” are visible from here. Panchgani's famous 'table land' has been the location for many Indian Movies, recently the location for the acclaimed movie "Taare Zameen Par".(Agent Vinod which will come very soon) ....

Just open space without any trees or ups and downs on the land on tops of 5 mountains, I think. You can see the other flat mountains from this place! First we think 'what is here...waste of time'. But the open space overwhelms us after some time. Worth travelling to this place (Panchgani) from Mahabaleshwar.

:) WOWO took me back to the time .. the good old days .. we use to come from school after walking miles .. come home and then the first task used to be to take all the cattle for a dip and sometimes we would jump in the water ourselves.. especially on HOT sunny days ..

Wishing you and family and everyone around you a very happy new year .. may all that you dream come true .. have a fantabulous new year ..

I wish you spend a great year ahead that starts with happiness and ends with that too. Happy New year.

Lovely photos.

These photos remind me of Henry David Thoreau who said ===

Our life is frittered away by detail. An honest man has hardly need to count more than his ten fingers, or in extreme cases he may add his ten toes, and lump the rest. Simplicity, simplicity, simplicity! I say, let your affairs be as two or three, and not a hundred or a thousand; instead of a million count half a dozen, and keep your accounts on your thumb nail. In the midst of this chopping sea of civilized life, such are the clouds and storms and quicksands and thousand-and-one items to be allowed for, that a man has to live, if he would not founder and go to the bottom and not make his port at all, by dead reckoning, and he must be a great calculator indeed who succeeds. Simplify, simplify. Instead of three meals a day, if it be necessary eat but one; instead of a hundred dishes, five; and reduce other things in proportion.-----

Unquote
Who needs words to live in peace, happiness, harmony and in companionship with others without rancor, distrust and misunderstanding. A simple life is a glorious life.

HAPPY NEW YEAR

Sai Charan said...

Relaxing atmosphere! :) Thank you Sandhyaji for sharing these photos, the buffaloes know how to take it easy, graze and take a relaxing dip in the pond.

Cheers,
Sai :)

Sandhya said...

BIKRAM: Sounds interesting! Those days will never come back and our children will not experience those carefree days like we did! Everything has changed!

Happy New Year to you too, Bikram! Thank you!


ONKAR: Thank you, Onkar!


sm: Thank you, sm! Our wishes to you too, sm! Thank you!


JOSEPH PULIKOTIL: Thanks for your kind words! Our best wishes to you and your family too, Joseph!


SAI CHARAN; Yes, they know, unlike us! Nowadays, we don't know how to be relaxed!

Jeevan said...

These become uncommon sight nowadays, even at the villages! Nice captures

Rachna said...

How happy they look! Lovely pictures, Sandhya.

Avada Kedavra said...

It's been sooo long since I saw a buffalo. These days we don't get to see many animals in Bangalore. Nice pics!

Mrs TJ said...

Buffaloes.. We dont see much of cows in Chennai let alone Buffaloes.. Such a simple and peaceful life in those meadows.. I sure envy those Buffaloes.. Happy New Year to you and your family Sandhyaji.

Renu said...

HAppy new year Sandhya!

Sandhya said...

JEEVAN: Thank you Jeevan! I used to come across many cows on the OMR until a few years back. No buffaloes and now don't see the cows even. But it was difficult to drive through the road at night when the cows slept on the highways.


RACHNA: Yes, they looked happy!

AVADA KEDAVRA: Too much traffic and then, they will be a disturbance for us! We humans are superior creatures. They don't have a place amongst us!


MRS. TJ: No, they have been pushed out of the cities. Thank you, Mrs.TJ and our wishes to you and your family too!


RENU: Thank you and our best wishes to you and your family too, Renu!
