MAKALIDURGA hills are just 50 Kms away from Bangalore - I have visited it periodically in the last 25 years. IT IS A BEGINNERS' HILL. But it is better to go with a person who knows the topography.
We had decided [as we usually do] to divide the group into two - the juniors will climb the CHIKKA MAKALIDURGA and the seniors [or the fitter ones] will climb the imposing MAKALIDURGA. I faced the group and looked at the hill and instinctively KNEW that the mother hill MAKALIDURGA was beckoning all of us. AND WE SET OUT on this hill that has kept calling me and my students.
A RECORD HAS BEEN SET - sixty students climbed the Makalidurga as a single group. Two volunteer mothers provided able support to the group. EVERYONE CLIMBED THE HILL - a unique feat.
