Preface

This is not a travelogue. I have written what all happened


to me and in me during the one day visit to savandurga, a
trekking destination 60 km from Bangalo re.

Tr e k o n : 5-nov-2006
Distance: 6 0 k m a p p r ox
Ti m e t a ke n : 1 d a y
Cost: Nearly 100 Rs excluding food.

What started as a normal trek ended as a pilgrimage.

previous trek to Savandurga through out.

later, so quality is not that good (roll did not last till the
end of the journey).
It was a philosophical experience, you shall see.
Thanks to Vinay for suggesting the sub-title and his
constant review and appreciat ion while was writing this big
manuscript after my office hours.
I am looking forward for your comments and suggestions. It
shall be of great help to me.

Just as the white summer cloud, in harmony
with heaven and earth freely floats in blue
sky from horizon to horizon following the
breadth of the atmosphere- in the same way
pilgrim abandons himself to the breadth of
greater life that … leads him beyond the
farthest horizons, to an aim that is already
present within him, though yet hidden from
his sight
Lama Govinda
“ Yo u a r e n o l o n g e r a k i d . Yo u m a y d o a s y o u p l e a s e ” I k n e w
Appa was frustrated.

“B u t ” I s a i d , w i t h s t r a n g e d e t e r m i n a t i o n .

“ I a m g o i n g t o t r e k t o m o r r o w , l e t w h a t e v e r h a p p e n” .

Both were awestruck. I would have never answered back


a p p a t h a t w a y. I s a w h e c o u l d s e n s e t h e s t r o n g
determination in my voice, his eyes seemed to agree and
he went without speaking a word.

However appa had all the reaso ns for his worries – I had
decided to trek savandurga alone. I had not been to any
major trek after coming back from Bhubaneswar (Aug 06).
All my tries to collaborate a trek with others had gone
v a i n . I d e c i d e d t o b r e a k a w a y f r o m t h e I n f y w o r k m o n o t o n y.

P r e p a r a t i o n w e n t o n n o r m a l l y. I l o a d e d m y b a g w i t h t h r e e 1
litre water bottles, emergency torch, another pair of dress
and ಅವಲಕ ಕ (avalakki) that amma had prepared for me.
Appa dropped me till the nearest bus stand, with many
words of caution of course.

The feeling was too strange; it was completely different


from my previous treks. Though I had traveled alone till
t h e t r e k b a s e c a m p s , I h a d n e v e r t r e k ke d a l o n e . R i n g r o a d
b u s w a s y e t t o m o v e a n d m i s t o n t h e H e b b a l L a ke h a d s t i l l
more time to survive.

Mind was in search of the algorithm I had been trying from


a day before for a combinatorics problem. Newer
approaches seem ed to come.

to remind of ‘life’. Mind seemed to forget it was ‘srikanth’,
I had started thinking externally about myself (I
realiz ed this state later).
What did I seek?
Where was this jo urney towards?

B r e a k t h r o u g h s t r i ke s i n t h e a l g o r i t h m , I m a ke a n o t e o f i t .
Again I turn inward.

Things seemed to acquire new dimensions; I had been

Bengalooru seemed contrastingly cold after Bhubaneswar’s

t a ke n t o p s y - t u r v y u p h e a v a l s .

Wa s I p l a y i n g a f o r c e d m i d d l e g a m e ?
Int uition said, pieces were in my control. Career in scienc e,
my dream of winning ‘fields’,…… many other things, all
h a n g i n g i n a i r.

As expected, I did not get seat in the village bus that took
me to Maagadi (ಮಾಗಡ ). Along the way, I could catch the

was sure that she was none of them. (she had good volume
as I had seen from weekimapia ).

Did I miss her?

She flowed from south to north (this is a local phenomena,


Deccan plateau is still inclined south-west) and I was
traveling eastwards. So by no means I could have missed

word that creat es the impression that system could be

Back to the algorithm. Last
resort was to call a rec ursive
function within itself which indeed had a for loop within a
for loop. I got down from the bus where deviation to the
Durga indicated 14 km.

I sat on the stone bench waiting for another village bus

Urban India has reac hed alarming proportions. A rapid

With the implementation of SEZ’s (Special Economic


Zones), I feel, situation is getting worse. This borrowed
conc ept (from china) intends to setup industries in the
agricultural hotspots. The argument is: better
accessibility, avoiding middlem en and a profitable play
g r o u n d f r o m t h e p o i n t o f v i e w o f F D I ( Fo r e i g n d i r e c t
Investment). But the fallo uts can be disastrous from India’s

ret urn to agric ulture. Government looses its control over
natural resourc es, becomes a mere president or a
g o v e r n o r. Fo r g e t w h a t h a p p e n s t o n a t u r e .

With world facing crisis regarding future fuel, terrorism,


global warming I feel we are heading towards total
destruction.
I got down from the cab. There was a big crowd near
ರ ಂ ಗ ನ ಾ ಥ ಸ ಾಾ ಮ ದ ೆೋ ವ ಸ ಾಾ ನ ( r a n g a n a a t h a s w a m i t e m p l e ) . I h a d
planned to climb from where I, Sudeesh and Neha had left
last time. I was nearly 3 km from that spot, so decided to
t a ke t h e s a m e r o u t e a s o u r p r e v i o u s t r e k , b u t t h i s t i m e t h e
left flank.
Let me explain about the mountain and the terrain. (I

you meet a temple to your left that is some 2 furlongs

left, ಕರ ಗುಡ ಡ (karigudda). In the middle lies the valley full of
vegetation. Plan was to trek up in the valley till I meet the
relic s of the fort. Then constantly moving towards left to

happening whenever I do things with concentration. I do it
and then realiz e I did it. This puts me into duality what ‘I’
is here?
I “The power of such mountain is so great and yet
so subtle that, without compulsion, people are
drawn to it from far and near, as if by the force
of some invisible magnet; and they will undergo
untold hardships and privations in their urge to
approach and to worship the centre of this
sacred power…. This worshipful and religious
attitude is not impressed by scientific facts,
like figures of altitude, which are foremost in
the mind of modern man. Nor it is motivated by
the urge to conquer the mountain…..”
Lama Govinda
The way of white clouds
entered into the dense part, to my surprise I saw a big ಉಡ
(monitor lizard) lying on the forest floor and a bunch of
m o n ke y s o n t h e t r e e s a m a z e d ( o r p e t r i f i e d ) l o o k i n g a t t h e
creature (not me, the lizard). They also got surprised,
l i z a r d d i s a p p e a r e d a n d m o n ke y s t o o k a d e f e n s i v e p o s i t i o n ,
their leader in the front made a grill face at me showing its
teet h set. I knew what to do, I ignored them, but they
followed me for half a furlong or so, then I lost their sight.

This valley has small boulders arbitrarily fallen has


reached stability (during the formation) forming crevices.
If you get underway any crevic e, you can get out some
d i s t a n c e a w a y , i t i s f u n g o i n g o n l i ke t h i s ( t h i s i s w h a t w e
did last time). I decided to climb up the rocks, hop from
one rock to the other without getting into a crevic e.
Decision was fine but implementation was hard. It was 9 30

I found a place, felt good enough to hide. I stayed there

there in sem i crevic e only one opening from where good
amount of forest was visible. I had cho sen so because I
c o u l d d e t e c t a r r i v a l o f m o n ke y s e a r l y. I t a l s o g a v e t h e m a
chance to see me, but I had to optimize under two
constraint conditions of my visibility and my vision area.

was to move on the rocks without getting into the crevic es.
This needs greater grip, precise pre calc ulat ion and
sustained physical endurance.
I had now come to open region from where I could see the
regio n below, detect slight movement s (this was surely the

had to use multiple
skills from my skill set (usually things happen without
much thinking, things happen by default). But now I had to
analyze different approaches and then try eac h one. I
learnt and analyzed a few new ideas.
One such instance is worth mentioning-I found a crevice
i n t e r e s t i n g , l o o ke d e n t i r e l y d a r k a n d s o m e s i g n o f
movement.

Should I risk going inside?

I did not think, got into the crevice. Put my hand pump
torch on, the crevic e was too lo ng than expected, did not
s e e m t o o p e n u p a n y w h e r e . Wi t h i n a f e w y a r d s , i t b r o ke
into two sections, one leading to an opening and other into
a dark space. I could smell something strange- it was
excreta of some animal (similar to the smell you get if you
e n t e r d i l a p i d a t e d s t r u c t u r e s i n h a m p e w h e r e b a t s t a ke
r e f u g e ) . Fo c u s e d m y t o r c h t h e r e , s u r p r i s e - t h r e e f l e s h y
whit e structures sleeping, I could see fur growing on them
s l o w l y. T h e y s e e m e d l i ke y o u n g w i l d b o a r s ( ? ) , n o t s u r e .
What if mother boar was there? Simple-you would not be
reading this artic le. What if they had made some sound
when I put light on them and mother came running?
I t u r n e d t h e l i g h t o f f a n d b a c ke d o f f. B e f o r e t h i s t h o u g h t
had occurred to me I had thought of lifting one of them
a n d d o s o m e ಮ ು ದ ುು ( k i s s i n g a n d c u d d l i n g , t h e y w e r e r e a l l y
cute). I decided against it.
When I was 10 or 11 year old I had seen a young one of a
c r o w o n t h e g ro u n d a n d i t s n e s t d e s t r o y e d d u e t o h e a v y
wind and rains. I saw some part of the nest still hanging on
t h e t r e e . I p u t t h i s c r e a t u r e i n t o t h e p o c ke t , c l i m b e d t h e
t r e e a n d p l a c e d i t b a c k i n t h e n e s t . To m o r r o w , I a g a i n s a w
the small one laying the ground, this time dead. Appa said
mother won’t accept the child once it comes to know that a
h u m a n h a s t o u c h e d i t . I d u g a n d b u r i e d i t . Fe l t g u i l t y ,
convinced myself with the pret ext of not knowing the fact.
I still wonder why this happens.
As I ran towards the opening of the crevice (where I had
g o t i n ) , I r e a l i z e d a n o t h e r m i s t a ke . T h i s c r e v i c e w a s u n
c l i m b a b l e , a s o r t o f o n e w a y e n t r y.
As usual, analyze-try-fail, analyze-try-fail…… this was not
e a s y. A n o t h e r o p e n i n g o f t h e c r e v i c e w a s t h e r e , d a n g e r o f
mother arriving was also there. Going out through another
opening was the rational choice.

But, this crevice challenged me. I decided let whatever


happen, let mother come, I am going to climb out of this. I
don’t know how much time lapsed. I climbed out of it.

When I look back at my life, I see that these fearless


moments have led to path breaking success. I love
c h a l l e n g e s ; I w a n t t o ke e p b r e a k i n g t h e m .

I was almost at the halfway mark, ro ugh open rock where


we had all climbed leaving our shoes below last time. I
climbed, my new shoes was gripping well, came up to the
place where we ate food last time, clock showed eleven.
Last time we had run up and down throw ing our shoes. This
time I had nothing, ran randomly, for the fun of it.

Sat at the same place where I had sat last time.


H o w s t r a n g e i t f e e l s ? N o w t h e r e i s n o b o d y.
Same place, same rock, same sun, same me.
I could visualize the way we had sat. Sudhir behind me,
Neha to my upper right, Maninder at right, Sudeesh and
a h b i s h e k s t i l l u p a n d R a g h u f a r b e l o w.
I was mesmerized. Does time play the drama?
Questions started emerging from no where.
Why had I come here? That too alone? Have I changed?
Who am I?

Life goes on….. I moved on, relics of the fort were visible
n o w. I c h a l ke d o u t a s t r a t e g y - ‘ I h a v e t o c o n t i n u o u s l y m o v e
towards my left and hit karigudda’. This left flank was
more challenging compared to the right side that we had
t a ke n l a s t t i m e . I k n e w m y t r e k w a s a b o u t t o b e g i n n o w , a l l
that happened till now was a warm up. Upon thinking this,
n e w l i f e f l o w e d l i ke a c u r r e n t t h r o u g h m y v e i n s . I m o v e d u p
stepping at right spots, making correct decisions at crux
positions. This made me feel about my elegance,
confidence level was high.
Next big problem was the bulging rock that stood between
me and the valley of karigudda. There were two ways-
1. Climb up the rock and get down the other side. That
shall land me in the valley of karigudda.
2 . Ke e p m o v i n g p a r a l l e l t o t h e r o c k o n i t s r i g h t , w h e r e t h e
b u l g e i s l e s s , c r o s s o v e r.

I could not help taking the time consuming second way as


first way was ruled out because rock had thorny bushes
next to it whic h made climb on it impossible, rock was
smooth, even I clear this other side (which side I could not
see now) may have had thorny bushes.
S o , I ke p t g a i n i n g a l t i t u d e ke e p i n g t h e b u l g e r o c k t o m y
left. This was not an easy job as way had thorns and I
frequently lost sight of the bulge rock. As I went up I could
notic e a slit in the bulge rock. What if this slit continued
all along and let into the other edge!

A h a , a f a i r y t a l e s t o r y - I s a i d t o m y s e l f. B u t i t w a s
compelling. I was in a mood to try out anything. Moving till
the silt itself was a 10min task and from then on just hope
was on my side. I went up to the slit.

W h e w ! S l i t w a s b i g e n o u g h t o l e t o n e p e r s o n i n . Wa y w a s
c u r v y. I t w a s s u r r o u n d e d b y 8 m t s t o n e w a l l s a n d t h e p l a c e
was wet with water trickling over the rocks, carving out
b e a u t i f u l p a t t e r n s o n t h e r o c k s . H o p e l o o ke d p l a u s i b l e , b u t
this way seemed to cut through the rock. I sat there for a
while and meditated. What if I spend my whole life
meditating here, doing yoga and discovering mathematics?

Thought process could not be continuous. I had to watch


out for deadly crevices. One misc alculation and I am
buried a few meters below- taken aback by the thought of
death, next second fascinated, I should die once and see
how it feels. I stared at the black hole, decided, ‘one day I
will do this’.

If rain erodes the inner surfaces of the rocks at the rate


direct ly proportio nal to thickness, then the law is
exponential? then, halflife?

Oh! It is a dead end. Clock showed one. I still had a lot of


time. My intuition said “there is a way”, reality strikes
b a c k “ b o y, n e x t t i m e ” .
How many times has this happened to me? If I discover
something, somebody would already have. Multiplication,
t r i g o n o m e t r y, r e s u l t s i n g e o m e t r y a n d n u m b e r t h e o r y, m y
models for integer partition, have already been done. Let
me see how longer this evades me …”have lost many
things following my intuition”, I consoled myself.

I was about to turn back when this interesting thing


h a p p e n e d . A b ro w n g r a s s h o p p e r j u m p e d f r o m f a r l e f t o f t h e
dead end to the dead end so perfectly camouflaged that I
could not locate till it jumped again. The interesting thing
was not about camouflage, but ‘there must be some vacant
space at the far left’.

“ Ye s , t h e r e i s a w a y ” , a s u d d e n t u r n l e f t t u r n c r e a t i n g t h e
illusion of dead end. This struck me as a sign of my future
success, instilled confidence in my intuition. Somewhere in
t h e i n t e r i o r o f m y m i n d – “ y o u a r e a g e n i u s . Yo u k n o w, y o u
are destined to achieve”. Did rocks resonate this thought?
I felt so.

Wa i t ! W h a t i f t h i s l e a d s m e i n t o h o m e o f s o m e w i l d b o a r o r
b e a r ? I p e e p e d i n l i ke a t h i e f. T h e r e w a s a h i n t o f s l i t
opening up, yes, I could see sunrays reaching the bottom
o f t h e s l i t . S l i t h a d o p e n e d u p i n t o a w a t e r w a y. W o r l d

w o r l d a f t e r a b o u t h a l f a n h o u r. I f e l t I w a s j u s t b o r n t o
have a look outside.
A happy moment

I rem embered how we ran up in the waterway at


devarayanadurga, it was a breakthro ugh soon aft er lunc h.
H o w I h a d t r e k ke d N a n d i h i l l s f o r t h e f i r s t t i m e a l o n e a n d i t
had rained, how I had stood below jog with water splashing
all over me, how I had yelled ‘I have already discovered
this’ when I read Loney’s trigonometry book for the first
time, how water had trickled down my body on the top of
malegudda,
how I had told appa “I feel multiplication is just a matter
o f n o t a t i o n . I c a n p r o v e i t i s s a m e a s a d d i t i o n” , i t w a s
almost midnight, that evening appa had introduced me to

A p p a s a i d “w h a t a b o u t a n u m b e r d i v i d e d b y t h r e e t i m e s
say 1 cut into 3 parts multiplied another number of same

I had no idea of any other kind than whole numbers. My


theory had failed. “It is too late, sleep now”, Appa said.

I saw a clearance to my left. It was unusual, it seemed


manmade. Surprise, I saw a ದ ಡ ಡ ಬಾಗ ಲು (a small door of the
dilapidated fort probably used for emergency ex it), it was
an unexpected coincidence as I had been just thinking
about fighters of the durga.

There were hardly signs of anybody using it, spiders

had grown so dense that it took me some time to know that
I was walking on the stone slabs; roots of big trees had
e v e n d i s p l a c e d t h e s e s l a b s . Ve g e t a t i o n h a d c h a n g e d b y
altitude, characteristic smell moist decaying leaves
h e r a l d e d t h e p r e s e n c e o f t r e e s w h i c h h a d t a ke n o v e r t h e
thorny bushes. The way direct ly led me up the Karigudda

a b o u t t o e n d ( I w o u l d c a l l y o u s m a r t i f y o u l o o ke d a t t h e

Karigudda was about to be conquered.

I s t o o d o n t h e t o p . B r e a t h t a k i n g v i e w. I s a w a s m a l l p o n d
on the top. I looked at the track I climbed; it was like
looking at my life in fast forward mode. Clock showed 3.
This is too early for my normal trekking standards.
Biligudda seemed to be at much higher altitude than where
I sat, but statistics said peaks differ only by 20 feet,
B i l i g u d d a w i n n i n g . Wo n d e r i n g a b o u t t h i s f a c t a n d u n a w a r e
of what was in stock for me, I turned back.

What happened from now on, rattled me, killed me, I was
dumbfounded with what life offered …. It made me realize,
this was not a simple trek, it turned out to be spiritual
j o u r n e y.

O h m a n ! W h a t i s t h i s ? I s a w a m o n s t e r r i s i n g l i ke a
c o n s t r i c t e d n o r m a l f u n c t i o n . T h e p e a k l o o ke d m a r v e l o u s ,
almost a perfect cone. This was unmistakably the one I had
come for
“K a r i g u d d a ! ! ” I s a i d t o m y s e l f.

the beginning the trek. I took the last snap of the pond,
the peak of Biligudda in background seemed to remind of a
distant aim.
I ran down into the forest to get to the base of the
karigudda. This is no simple task. One needs skill to clear
this strip; it is the steepest I have ever climbed till date. It
is my practice to never grip using hands while climbing a
steep rock as walking on the legs gives super ior grip. But
while I was almost halfway, I lost the grip. If I hadn’t fallen
on my hands, death was certain. I was climbing with the
mentality of ‘let me beat this guy’ and that was not a good
state of mind. I realized how my mental state had led me
to imperfection. I did lie down for a while, it was a
submissio n. My arroganc e was shattered. I meditated, my
w a s c l e a r. I t w a l ke d u p t o t h e p e a k o n m y l e g s a s u s u a l . I t
was a miracle.
Pe a k w a s n a r r o w , m i n d w a s p r i s t i n e . I w a s o n e w i t h t h e
mountain. I knew I had to be calm, but, why was I
i m p a t i e n t d u r i n g t h e c l i m b ? N o a n s w e r. I m a d e a m i s t a ke , I
corrected it, and I smiled, all the peaks around me sm iled.
Me, my life, adventures, mathematics all seemed to
muddle up in space time. I stopped asking philosophical
q u e s t i o n s t o m y s e l f. I s a w t h e t r u e m e a n i n g w h e n I
submitted. There was no me, I disso lved into the rock and
became a part of it. I had no necessity to ask any
question, I am here to play my role; I am him, its true,

L i ke t h e h u s h i n t h e s e s n o w m o u n t a i n s , t h e s i l e n c e
s w e l l e d w i t h t h e i n t a ke o f m y b r e a d t h i n t o a
presence of vast benevolenc e of whic h I was a
part: in my journal for that day, seeking in vain to
find the words for what had happened, I called it
the “smile”. The smile seem ed to grow out of me,
f i l l i n g a l l t h e s p a c e a b o v e a n d b e h i n d l i ke a h u g e
shadow… for it was I who smiled; the smile was
me. I did not breathe; I did not need to look; for it
was everywhere. Nor there was terror in my awe: I
f e l t “ g o o d ” , l i ke a “ g o o d c h i l d ” , e n t i r e l y s a f e .
Wo u n d s , r a g g e d e d g e s , h o l l o w p l a c e s w e r e a l l
gone, all had been healed; my heart lay at the

T h e S n o w L e o p a r d , Pe t e r M a t h i e s s e n
Advaita.

I realiz ed that some people were waving me from


Biligudda. I waved them back. They must have been
surprised to see a lone person on the other peak. I could
identify shivagange(ಶ ವಗಂಗೆ), distinct triangular peak. I was
confused in deciding which Nandi hill among other peaks
is. I climbed down and waved back at the peak that taught
me life.

were in good condition due to sparse human intervention. I
thought, the trek ended but fate had a different story to
s a y. I u n s u s p e c t i n g l y s t a r t e d w a l k i n g t o w a r d s B i l i g u d d a . I
had underestimated the difficulty of the path from
karigudda to biligudda. As I got down the karigudda a
s t e e p r o c k b l o c ke d m y v i s i o n o f B i l i g u d d a . S i n c e t h i s r o c k
was too steep to climb, I had to go into to valley of
Karigudda (now there were two valleys. One was where I
t r e k ke d f r o m a n d t h e o t h e r o n o t h e r s i d e o f K a r i g u d d a ) . I n
order to explore the other side of the valley, I started
getting down. I encountered deadly crevic es, at beginning I
l o s t a l t i t u d e u n i f o r m l y. A s I p r o g r e s s e d c r e v i c e s b e c a m e
difficult to handle, my speed was too slow and at one point
I had to stop with ‘black holes’ all around me ready to
show me way into new universe. Another unnoticed thing
was that I was in the shadow region of karigudda and
vegetation was so dense that I was almost in darkness.
This was a serious setback.

I p u t t h e t o r c h o n , b u t i t d i d n o t l i g h t u p . I t r e k ke d u p t h e
valley again, now with half the speed I had come because
of bad light. I came back to the place where I started from.
It was almost half an hour and my displac ement was zero.
To g e t h e r w i t h l o w v i s i b i l i t y , p o s s i b i l i t y o f g e t t i n g s t r u c k
here for that night made me get tensed (this was unusual
f o r m e ) . I t r i e d t h e o t h e r s i d e o f t h e v a l l e y. A h ! C r e v i c e s
again. This was irritating. I could have cleared them if I
had enough light. I knew sun was not yet down, it was still
4 . 1 5 o r 4 . 3 0 , b u t I w a s s t i l l i n s h a d o w r e g i o n . Ti m e w a s
running out, if I was not out of the shadow within another
half an hour, I would be bestowed with complete darkness.
Pa n i c !

I decided to try other side of the valley again. Being struck


between Karigudda and the steep rock, I was forced to
o p e r a t e w i t h i n s m a l l t u n n e l l i ke a r e a . G a t h e r i n g a l l m y
courage, I moved down the valley on the other side to give
a n o t h e r t r y. T h e r e w a s a c l e a r a n c e w h e r e g r a s s
grew and maximum light penetrated. I decided to sleep
there if there was no way out. But this time I could not go
down till where I had gone last time- reason Darkness.

Up stream in the inner canyon,

cant sleep with shanti”. I was exhausted. If I had got some
restable place, eyes would close by themselves. I was put
in the worst position I could imagine. Lips started drying. I
felt thirsty and remembered having emptied the last bottle
on top of karigudda.

When the trek had started, I had too little involvement. I


climbed by default, then it became tougher, I put my
conscious thought. It became still tougher during my climb
of Karigudda, nature taught me a lesson, I realiz ed
‘oneness with nat ure’. Then, I was challenged to escape

had 15 minutes more to live. I was struck in an awkward
position, I slowly started sliding, I could not sustain in this
situation too long. I could slowly feel myself going down,
every inc h I moved, I grew weary of the thought that I was
going to die.
