Yelagiri Hills (Tamil Nadu, India)

My friend Krishna is part of the Book Lovers Program for Schools. It just happened that he had some work to do in Ebenezer School on Yelagiri Hills so I went with him along with his colleague, Sudarsan. 

It took us about 5 hours to get to Yelagiri Hills. The road going up the hill was very narrow. I was amazed how the houses, schools and hotels were built. 

I was going to get a hostel since I am not part of this program but luckily the people from the school allowed me to stay inside the school. I stayed in the girl’s dorm while my buddies stayed in the boy’s dormitory. 
Our meals were provided. All the students get together in the dining hall and get served. 

As they do their job the next day, I kept myself busy chatting with the students and taking pictures with them in a sneaky way because they said the teachers will scold them if they get caught. 

I learned that the teachers here can easily hit students as a way to discipline them. I’ve seen it and it was not very nice scene at all. 

Anyhow, I enjoyed this trip. As we were heading back to Chennai, there was this beautiful sunset. 🙂

I am a woman consumed by wanderlust. I am outgoing but I also love to spend time alone, live for “being yourself”. I love new situations and to meet new people.
