whole view of Bidar fort where thetown is situated. Bidar is 
famous for Bidriware craft and many historical monuments..
It is in Karnataka state and on the border of Andhra pradesh and Maharashtra. It was my one day trip to Bidar from bangalore 
which took 16 hours by road. I have seen two kannad and one
tamil movies in the bus journey.

cigarettes !!!

"I like cigarettes...
I like to think about fire in man's hand. Fire, a dangerous force, tamed at his finger tips. I often wonder about the hours when a man sits alone watching the smoke of cigarette. THINKING.I wonder what great things have come from such hours. When a man thinks, there is a spot of fire alive in his mind - and it is proper that he should have the burning point of a cigarette as his one expression."
