The time is unstoppable. The question is, do we have enough memories equivalent to fast ticking time?

Here’s the answer right in front of you. This year shall end on a high. This year shall create memories for a lifetime. This year shall engrave the grandeur of Karnataka in such a way that you will advise your grandchildren after many years to visit certain places like Gokarna, Dandeli, Sakleshpur, Agumbe, and Kodachadri.
