Visit to Hampi after two decades

My last visit to Hampi was during 1987. Though I visited Kannada University many a times later, I never made it to visit the ruins of Hampi. Now I had to go to receive my Ph.D. degree. Convocation is totally different at Kannada University- it is called `Nudi Habba'- a festival of letters/speech. Unlike in western Universities, we are supposed to wear white:
