Stills from a Silent Saga

When you get bored of the hustling city and start finding the workplace over-dramatic, when the clock seems to tick as slow as a sloth and the sky doesn't show up any sunshine,
pack your bags and RUN!
P.S- Don't forget to carry your camera!
That's what I did over the weekend. An overnight journey from Bangalore and you reach on a land where there is sea, sun and sand. And so started the silent saga. Meeting new people, doting on a different cuisine, wandering over cozy empty streets, lusting over new finds and expressing gratitude to the sun. A feeling when you know that you won't run into any face seen before, instead you would see people with faces that never grow old, smiles that never wash away and spirit that blows with the wind along the seashore.

One good thing about going somewhere you have never been to, you can discover some great places by yourself <apart from the ones overheard or google-researched>
A place called L'e Space near M.G. road was one of a kind that communicated a raw yet soothing aura depicted some mysterious fluency- from abstract human paintings on walls and chairs to a Chinese kettle hanging right up your head, a hidden Buddha statue under the roof, a wooden bear looking at you from behind the leaves and many more that I am yet to discover in my next visit. 
P.S.- Lemme know if you find the 'hidden' Buddha statue in any of the pictures! :)

Loving the chair's back!
A broken stained glass frame becomes a back support of a chair. :)
Finds at various places- cafes, restaurants and boutiques.

Yes, I do love Pondy!

So, the last few days of the year ended with a charming experience. Have a happy new year everyone and if nothing else, resolute to visit plenty of new places this year. :)
