Picture of the Week #14

Koleshwar plateau as seen from atop Mt. Kamalgad near Wai, Maharashtra, India.

Developers are lobbying to make a "New Mahabaleshwar" hill-station on Koleshwar.  Can you believe it?  I trekked through the dense forest of Koleshwar and it will indeed be sad to see all the trees cut down for our amusement.  Then again, if I don't intend to do anything about this, then I have no right to complain.

An elderly local (81 years old) by the name of Mr. Gogawale, who was as fit as an 18 year old, told us that Drona from the epic Mahabharata had spent some time on this plateau.
