Visit to Bannerghatta National Park, Bangalore

Visit to Bannerghatta National Park on 16th August 2012.

How to reach:
Based on your location in Bangalore there are multiple options to reach the park via Bus/Auto/Taxi.
We took the BMTC Gold Day Pass @90/- to avoid purchase of tickets again and changed Volvo buses as per wish. Also having a phone equipped with Nokia Drive & Google maps helped in getting rest of the details..

Cost per adult is 210/- which includes visit to Zoo & Desert Safari

Desert Safari is something which makes it worth the visit only if you haven't seen something similar before. Zoo is not to great or well maintained though.
Overall I found the animals to be on weaker side maybe its just me or the season?.

For more details check the pictures & videos below.
Also found this blog very useful.

Tax Refund SPAM

Today I received an email from Income Tax Department [] saying I am qualified for a refund of the sum of 34,120.05 INR which is your accumulated tax excesses. Submit a tax refund request and allow us to process it within 10(seven) working days.
I mean Fiscal year end is close (last quarter). I would expect email from government to pay tax and advance submit notification but updating me for refund is still way too much to expect ;-)

Anyways thanks to the
Google via feature. With Just one glance I knew its a SPAM. See the screen-shot below and beware of such emails.

1. Its coming via domain -- which probably allows SMTP open- relay and Spammer is abusing the service

2. See the link its pointing to some burling ton boy cafe [No No... i didn't clicked it]
