Jog Falls, Shimoga: magical, musical waters

Oh mighty waters!

milky waters, misty waters!

You roar, You scare;

And still you offer more.

Jog Falls, Shimoga – one of the rarest marvels of nature that leave you in awe. The place evokes myriad emotions in you. When you first look at it, it doesn’t feel or amount to much. But give it some time, the place starts to grow on you. You hear the roaring water, you see the white, misty falls & you feel the fog.

Jog Falls – one of the tallest waterfalls in India is a natural wonder of music, melody & magic. You can’t help but hear the falls roaring from a distance even when you can’t see them. And when you actually see them, you just want to keep looking at them & figure out which one of the streams is making the loudest noise.

The Jog falls would have marked the boundary of the school. The auditorium where us the muggles (homosapiens) watch the light & sound show; the chosen ones would have used it for their quidditch practice.

If Hogwarts were for real & they planned on opening one in India, it had to be right here nearby Jog Falls, Shimoga. The Jog falls would have marked the boundary of the school. The auditorium where us the muggles (homosapiens) watch the light & sound show; the chosen ones would have used it for their quidditch practice. And the boring KSTDC Maurya Hotel would have provided for the classrooms & libraries. Oh! how awesome it can be. J K Rowling, are you reading?

It’s purely magical to see how the weather changes in fraction of seconds when you are sitting on a green colored, permanently stationed, iron bench – staring at the falls. You stare at the falls & suddenly it all gets milky. You bat an eyelid & out of nowhere, a ray of beaming sunlight shines on the mosquito bite on your arm, from the last night. And when you are trying hard to remember where you kept the mosquito repellent that your bought from FabIndia the other day, just then it starts to rain. And of course, now you are thinking where the hell is that colorful umbrella you bought from the mall road of the last hill station you visited.
