Last Saturday, we took Advi(my daughter) and my brother-in-law’s kids boating in Madiwala Lake, Bangalore. It was quite late when our turn arrived and we were sad that it was almost dark. But just as we reached the center of the lake, we realized that the view of city lights shimmering in the dark night looked mesmerizing.
I was worried that 3 kids with all their jumping might topple the boat, but the man who was issuing the tokens for boat ride assured that the lake was not more than 4 ft deep at the center. He said that even if the boat tips over, one can just walk and reach back!!!
The boat required two people to pedal and a 30 minute ride in a two seater boat costs 50/- where as a ride in a 4 seater boat costs 100/-. The boat rides are available all days of the week but closes around 7 PM. Here are some photos of the city lights captured during our boat ride, clicked using my S3 camera.
