This trip to Hampi had been planned and postponed a zillion times and finally it had come to reality. Hampi stands witness to the history of rise and fall of Vijaynagara Empire, which was one of the largest and most important kingdoms in Indian history. It also has strong mythological roots attached to it. Hampi is also believed to be the Kishkindha Vanara kingdom and birth place of Lord Hanuman in Hindu mythology. Once a flourishing kingdom, the place is now a UNESCO world heritage site lined with temples and boulders all around. The site of boulders and ruins of Vijaynagara empire was a sight to behold.
So I had these non refundable flight tickets to Bangalore for an event which got cancelled at the last moment. What do I do, I thought to myself.
