When you walk through the villages of his books,you might wonder why? that he did not prefer the villages of karnataka? Even though,they are not far in distance.

The seemingly nearest mullaianagari, kudremukh and places in malnadu are very greater in green than his preferred villages of sivanapalli,anchetty,aiyur and jowlagiri.

So,what might be the reason..?
One theory was, that,the other places including in and around mysore were often, off limit for hunters except nobles and kings.

So,our man has to start off from places like nobody is much interested,but, drool worthy.
