Daredevil Tourists at Hogenakkal Falls

Copious amounts of water was flowing into the Cauvery that Sunday morning and thus the waterfalls made for a very pretty sight. This spectacular sight, coupled with the fact that it was a holiday drew a lot of tourists to Hogenakkal Falls both from Tamil Nadu and from Karnataka.

Daredevil tourists try to get a closer look. I am hoping that they were sober 
While we were all enjoying the beauty of these mighty waterfalls from a safe distance, some tourists chose to be adventurous and perched themselves at cliff’s edge wherein, they were just inches from falling into the water. This, for sure gave them an impossible view point, but this view came at the cost of an extremely minimal margin of error, post which their life would be history. Personally, I don’t understand why people wish to jeopardize their lives like this. To worsen the situation, some of these tourists are in a state of inebriation. No wonder, Hogenakkal records a lot of tourist deaths and I guess most of it is because of stupidity on the part of the excited tourists.
