Dear SCNers,

Welcome to my BIF.

Before introducing myself I would like to thank Mr. Vamsi krishna reddy kakuru and Mr.  Nitin Jinagal for fastening for BIF. Also Moshe Naveh for his innovative idea of BIF.

About me –



I’m Bhagyaraj Gowda from Hassan, Karnataka – India.

Born and brought in Hassan (ಹಾಸನ) district located in the south-western part of Karnataka in India. The district has had an eventful and rich history.

Lived 7 years in Bangalore (ಬೆಂಗಳೂರು) the capital city of the Indian state of Karnataka, Bangalore is known as the Silicon Valley of India because of its role as the nation’s leading Information Technology (IT) exporter.

Presently living in Hyderabad. Capital city of the southern Indian state of Andhra Pradesh.


About My Family –

We are 4 in my family including my mother and 2 brothers.

Spent my childhood with grandparents in village with the environment of the pleasant and silent scenic beauty.

Still remember the puerility betting games for jellynuts with friends. (Each one of us used to climb coconut tree and emptying jellynuts on tree itself. One who drunks more jelly-nuts will be considered as winner) To be honestly, I like Villages instead a metro city.


Experience –

              By believing “Turn your wounds into wisdom.” and “Live and Let Live” policy, spend 10years of carrier wave in various streamlines like Supply Chain, Business Analysis, ERP, Web-x Applications and finally became SAP Consultant. 😉

Associated with organization like Bharthi-Info, Mithra Technologies, LGcns, Unilever, Yash.

My Hobbies are –

Movies, Music, Sports (Football and Cricket), Reading Novels, Etc. (Importantly SCN 😎 😎 ).

Belongs To –

The place is called Hassan after the Goddess “Haasanamba”, the goddess and presiding deity of the town.

Hassan district was the seat of the Hoysala Empire which at its peak ruled large parts of south India from Belur as its early capital and Halebidu as its later capital during the period 1000 – 1334 CE. Today Hassan is primarily known worldwide for its Hoysala architecture and is a veritable treasure trove of about fifty sculptural marvels tucked away in several villages and towns of the district.

Native Language –

     My mother tongue is Kannada (ಕನ್ನಡ) whose native speakers are called Kannadigas.


Native Nature/Landscape –

Hassan district lies partly in the “Malnad” tract and partly in the southern “maidan”(plains) tract. By considering the physical aspects, climate, rainfall, etc. the district may be divided into three regions, viz., (1) southern malnad, (2) semi-malnad and (3) southern maidan.



This place is located at 221 Km’s from Bangalore and 42 Kms from Hassan. Belur is very famous temple town renowned for the grand Hoysala Temple dedicated to Lord Chennakesasva built in 1117 AD. It’s the best of three Hoysala temples listed in UNESCO World Heritage Sites

It Is famous for the Bahubali Statue which is supposed to be the tallest monolithic stone statue in the world with a height of 57 feet carved out of a single block of granite.

    Hi Bhagyaraj,

    Interesting to learn about the Hoysala temples. I was lucky enough to visit a similar temple in Indonesia called Borobudur but I would love to visit Belur one day. Great blog, thank you. 🙂
