Shivanasamudra is a small village in Madya District of Karnataka State. There are two falls, called Gaganachukki and Bharachukki. These beautiful falls are on the River Kaveri.

I was told that this place is also called as Shimsa. There is also a hydro electric power station, which is the first one in Asia.

From Bangalore, we took the Mysore Road route to Shivanasamudra, which is very close to the highway. It took us around 3 1/2 hours, and the road was good.

A beautiful plant

Have you seen this type of a plant? It is called "cutex plant". I found it in Thiruvananthapuram, during a visit.

The ends of the leaves are pinkish in color, just like a lady's nails with cutex. What a marvelous idea!
