Fasting month and festival become food festival as well?

Ramzan is a holy month of fasting to be practiced by the followers or believers besides other obligations but it seems some commercial big shots making it as business as well beside poor businessman. Yes, cities like Bangalore and other metro cities across India making it even grand like a food festival rather.

Once, there were huge crowds for varieties of food stalls in and around Frazer Town, Tilak Nagar, Shivaji Nagar in Bangalore, and now, they have begun it in Koramangala and Bannerghatta Road too. The customer for the food is not from a particular religion or caste but for all. You may see all of them gathering together at the stall areas and enjoying the delicious veg and non-veg varieties of foods.

An adventure trip from Bangalore to Vellore

It was my long time plan to ride a bike alone for a long trip with adventure added as well. Yes, an early morning left from Bangalore (Karnataka) to Vellore (Tamilnadu) via Hosur, Krishnagiri, Ambur and Vellore route. It was not hot climate when left the Bangalore and it was not very cold as well that helped me to gear up. However, the journey was all alone from my Bike and had to go for a weekend ride to meet my friends and relatives in Vellore. 

There was no issue till Hosur after passing one Tolgate near Electronic city. I had a simple breakfast at Hosur’s one of the medium range Restaurant. I already got some food / water / juice stuff as a backup, though. However, it was my pleasure to taste the food like ‘Highway on my plate’. Yes, I left Hosur after breakfast and short relax. If you are looking for one of the best adventure bike trip then continue to read it.

I crossed around 12kms from Hosur and my bike started to dance and then pick up reduced automatically, I then realized that my bike’s back wheel got punctured and no more normal speed or movement. I had to get down and find the nearest puncture place as my Bike (usually all bikes) has no step tyre/tube. It was my unfortunate that it got puncture where the area was / is like a forest (Hosur to Krishnagiri Highway is generally a forest and elephant roaming area). The second tough issue was hot weather and sunshine toward my bike and my body. No one around except myself, bike, natural atmosphere, and heavy speed buses, cars and trucks passing by.
