Au programme

The walk commences at Lalbagh, the 240 acre botanical garden built by Hyder Ali, the father of Tipu Sultan. Tipu Sultan made a very valuable contribution to this garden in the form of a large variety of exotic plants from all over the world. During the walk i will explain in detail about Tipu's contribution and how that legacy has survived through the British period and then Independent India.
We will take a short ride in Metro Rail and then walk to Bangalore Fort. Built-in 1537 by Kempe Gowda the founder of Bangalore as a mud fort, it was reinforced with stone by Tipu’s father Hyder Ali in 1761. I will take you back to the 18th century and explain the significance of this Fort during the Anglo Mysore wars fought between Tipu and the British forces. I will tell you about how the legendary Lord Cornwallis who returned to India after the defeat of Britain in the American War of Independence, used cunning and guile to defeat Tipu.
The Summer Palace of Tipu is a fascinating structure with teak pillars and frescoes. IT is here i will unravel the legend of Tipu and explain the reforms he ushered in which had a significant impact on the economy and society.
We end this walk at a secret armory of Tipu! He used it for storing ammunition including rockets which ultimately were taken, adpated and used by the British in WW-II to great effects.

I have studied business administration and have been inspired all my life by personalities who have reformed society. Foremost among them is Tipu Sultan, the pioneer of use of rockets in warfare and the scourge of the British during the colonial era. I have studied his life at length, spent few years at Srirangapatna his capital, met people from community of his descendants and have been doing tours about him for 10 years. I enjoy talking about Tipu's reforms including a revolutionary lunisolar calendar, a land revenue system, rockets used for first time in the world in a war, establishment of Mysore Silk industry and Toy Making in Channapatna. I am also a big fan of the Bangalore cuisine and indulge my guests with local food. Horticulture is another passion and i love taking people on horticulture walks to Lalbag & Cubbon Park.
