Happy Dasara! May 22, 2011
If you're in Bangalore, take the short day trip to the Dasara Festival (also spelled Dussehra). It's worth hiring a private car through your hotel if you aren't on a budget. It's a scenic drive once you're out of the city. Otherwise, you can find a shared coach.

Mysore is tiny but you'll see tons of tourists and locals alike out for this event. You can purchase street food and drinks upon arrival. As with any festival, watch for pick pockets. Security is very light so if you arrive a bit early, you can meander in and out of the area where the performers gather for the parade. You can watch them practice live, front and center. It'll beat any view you could get during the actual event.

I grew up in Mysore! Nice to see this short blog about my hometown..I do go back at least once a year but haven't lived there for decades..have loads of memories of Dasara back then, less commercial and more fun back then but we go with the times now..thanks for posting! :)
