"Wading neck deep in a swamp, your revolver is neither use nor ornament until you have had time to clean it" Mary H. Kingsley (1897)

The Lure Of A Tour


I began to take it easy some time ago.

And settled into the rigours of lethargy as if born to it.

But almost six months have passed since I last went on tour.

Noblesse oblige.

I must heed my duties.

A regal tour of Karnataka is being planned:

The ancient and abandoned city of Hampi;

The princely splendour of Mysore.


I will be without my usual entourage – Anu is spending Vishu with his family.

But Robin, a trusted palace courtier, shall accompany me.

Together, we will explore these wonders,

With a favoured guide and driver.
