Lakshmi Narayanan, a friend of mine introduced me to his friends Jagadeesh & Prabhakar in our usual meeting spot, Hosur Railway Station. Yes, It’s a wonderful place to meet up friends during weekend. A serene environment at evening as well during other time of the day as well. As less as 25 trains a day helps in keeping our station environment neat. It might sound unusual for those who are brought up in Cities, can railway station be a meeting spot?. Unlike other places, our railway station is a bridge for many people to meet up their friends.

After I met my friend’s friends, We decided to go out the next day for a trip & was into discussion about the place. It was few minutes the discussion Prabhuram joined us in the spot. We’ve come up with two places Yoga Narasimmar temple in Denkanikkottai & Muthyala Madugu in Anekal. The prior was pointed out by Prabhuram & Lakshmi Narayanan the later.
It was already 21:45 and we chose Muthyala Madugu. Lakshmi Narayanan said We’ll start at 10:00 next morning, I paused him & told My wake up bell rings at 10:00! Then 11:30 was fixed to start and we left home.

Exactly at 11:30 Prabhuram called me and said it’s 11:30 and all are waiting. It was a surprise for me! How can my friends be ready On time! I hurried my mom for Breakfast (c) Lunch & started eating, couldn’t eat fast as I will not miss to taste my mom’s preparation, that too Vengaaya Saambaar with Vendaikkai vathakkal. Finished eating & was delayed 30 minutes to reach Lakshmi Narayanan’s house.
I was third to be there and two are yet to come! That was a fun call on 11:30..! After Prabhakar & Jagadeesh reached all of us started at 12:15 & filled air & petrol for some amount.
Climate was pleasing. Went on few kilometers and saw some banners with Illaya Thalabathi on the way which was diverting riders attention from road. Yes, Illaya Thalabathi was on his way to Hosur for his fan’s marriage. After crossing Dinnur stopped for some photos and took Anekal road. It’s a very good road, with trees on both sides of the road. You would have seen that kind of road 10 years back. Now not even in Thanjavur & Mannargudi you can find this kind of road.
Prabhakar asked me How many kilometers more to reach? When I told him Not more than 20 kms da we saw the Milestone showing Anekal 9 kms. After we reached Anekal it was further 5 kms for the destination. Stopped by a Bakery, bought some snacks & moved further. Asked localities way to Muthyala Madugu, meanwhile other 2 scooters were 1 km ahead of us.
After knowing the proper route, chased other bike & scooter with a decent speed & told them the route is other side & made a U turn. Then after we took the proper road to the falls, again other 3 went ahead and missed few snaps on the way! Falls is now 3 kms ahead. Meanwhile when myself & prabhuram was taking snaps, 3 bikes on that muddy road went on like a World’s fastest bike! We started to move on further & saw our friends in the check post bought the tokens already for us & saw a cop removing keys from a bike while 2 guys were requesting him to give their keys back. Yes! That was the World’s fastest bike that I saw few minutes back.
Before even I locked my scooter, few monkeys were ready to take our snacks. Before even Monkey started to Screech, I made Monkey like hoots and dragged the snacks carry bag. With 4 others surrounding the snacks bag, we moved on further. There were several steps down to see the falls, not more than 50 – 70 steps. We were in a wonder if we are in proper place! We couldn’t hear any water sound.

Finally reached down & to all our surprise we saw Muthyala Madugu with not more than a 100 liters water! It was a wonderful place with full of trees and rocks. It would have been still better if there was water in the falls. Moved down further and found a place for us to sit. Finished our snacks. Enjoyed the place & environment. Spent few hours and started back, took a different route to go on.
After few kilometers stopped by a place. It was an Ashram. The entrance gate was locked. It was all covered by many trees, when we were in some discussion suddenly we heard some dogs barking, to all our surprise two well grown dogs chained each other was running as fast as possible and we didn’t had an idea on what to do, all of us started running in same direction and as it was a open place there was no place for us to hide. But to surprise us more, dogs ran ahead of us! Yes, they were escaping from it’s master! We came to know this when a old man came near the gate asking for us if we saw his dogs coming out.
After laughing out at what was happened it was already 16:30 & we left the place and moved towards Hosur. Yes, It was a memorable trip to Muthyala Madugu!
