Warli Art kit

Last weekend when we were browsing for a b'day gift for my son, I found this Warli Art craft kit. I just love Warli art but never tried doing it so far. I had decided to start learning myself, browsing the internet for the Warli images. But lucky me I found this kit in Reliance Timeout and I just can't wait to begin. This kit also has guide and lot of pictures of Warli.

Neelavara Temple

Last week I visited the 'Mahisha Mardini Temple of Neelavara' for a family function. This temple is usually crowded during the last of monsoon season. 'Neelavara' means surronded by water. The river Seetha flows by this temple. It was total calm and peaceful here. Sharing few pics.
