[Background: Kannada, like probably many other Indian languages, has seen its days run out completely as the primary language used to store, record knowledge. It may have been due to several factors, but back to local view of the world: local news, local language, local perspectives and everything local has now been catching up. Even FM radios in the city have switched back to the local language as the primary language of broadcast. Well, is it time the local language is also used more and more to document knowledge?

Yesterday, after some time spent with people who had loads of ideas, space and resolution for pushing 'FOSS' in state and central government, we had a quick meal at "Chung's". Of all that we quickly gobbled up, that one recipe which had rice in it (schezwan?) was really the 'eatable' for me. We then quickly headed towards Nagesh Hegde's farm. A brief stop was to get some Ayurvedic medicine that was out of stock at my place. What was supposed to be an evening visit became a dinner time visit to Nagesh Hegde's place.
Passion Fruit hpn December 17, 2008 - 18:45
Each time I visit Nagesh Hegde's place, I get to carry home some rare fruits and at times some rare vegetables. During one of the visits to his place, he gave me this fruit (of which I duly took a photograph as Mom cut it into slices back home) and told me that it is known as the "Passion Fruit". It grows on creepers.

10th edition of Sampada podcast with Nagesh Hegde It was a sunny day and the usual Bangalore pollution was in the air. We were headed through the freaky traffic of Mysore Road towards Kengeri with our own imagination of how a farm near the city would be like. For me, it turned out to be very different from what I had imagined.
