    On a breezy summer morning, which was a perfect day for a bike ride, we decided to hit the Bangalore Mysore highway and head out to Ramanagara. "Let's go rock-climbing", was the brilliant idea. But, guess what? Our plans changed (as always) and we ended up at Janapada Loka.

    Visiting a museum sounded like a very boring idea to me. But I went along nonetheless. "There must be something different about this place. Plus I have never seen a 'folk-museum'." This was the conversation I had with the voices in my head 🙈

    This sprawling 15-acre complex promised me with a glimpse of the history of Kannadiga's and their lives. With over 5,000 fascinating objects to explore, the visit turned out to be extremely impressive 💯

    This wasn't just a museum, I realized it later. It was also a platform where the rural artisans and artists could showcase their creations and performances.

    Though my roots are in Karnataka, I never had the exposure to know their history. I was ignorant and it had been blissful 😅. But walking amongst the exhibits had sent a wave of pride through me. The simple yet fruitful lives lived by my ancestors.

    In order to ensure that the tradition of this beautiful state is passed on to the young, this complex conducts classes. It also awards Janapada diploma and Janapada Certificates to the students who complete the courses successfully. 🎓

    The folk art museum was my absolute favorite. The household artifacts on display here instantly transported me back to my Ajji's place (grandmother). They also had musical instruments, which are a vital part of the tribal culture, on display ❤

    Come dinner time, we were served with authentic halli oota (village food). All of it served on a banana leaf with loads of rice and chapati's. I was stoked in just one serving but I still went in for seconds. Hey! The girl misses home food ❤😂

    Though I was skeptical about it initially, this visit was definitely a warm, bear hug sort of experience. That night after I reached home, I slept like a baby. I imagined myself warm and cozied up under the neem tree and staring at the open sky. ❤
