Into the woods – you have to grope,
But that’s the way you learn to cope.
Into the woods to find there’s hope
Of getting through the journey.
Into the woods, each time you go,
There’s more to learn of what you know.
Into the woods, but not too slow –
Into the woods, it’s nearing midnight –
Into the woods to mind the wolf,
To heed the witch, to honor the giant,
To mind, to heed, to find, to think, to teach, to join, to go to the Festival!
Into the woods,
Into the woods,
Into the woods,
Then out of the woods
And happy ever after!”

 – Stephen Sondheim

This particular photograph was taken on the track of toy-train. The toy-train is a part of Jawahar Bal Bhawan, amusement park at the Cubbon Park maintained by the Government.

Cubbon Park is situated right in the heart of the city. Built and completed in the year 1870, it is also one of the oldest city parks of India.  It occupies over 300 acres with flowering plants, towering trees, shaded groves and vast expanse of greenery.  It is a great lung space for morning joggers and for naturalists who study plants in the serene environment. Moreover, it is park for every Bangalorean to get lost in the woods and then find themselves out of the woods, and happy ever after!!
