For heavens sake do not google Octopus Lake as it is a title conjured up by the Author inspired by the Eight arms of THE ASHTAMUDHI LAKE.

  1. Yes we loved our stay at the CMH Asthamudi too. There was a funny incident one day. Since the resorts gate open to a village, one day with my shorts, sleeveless tee I went jogging early morning. One middle aged lady was ahead of me carrying wood or tiffin i cant recall. Watching me jog and approach towards her, God knows what she thought, she started running ahead of me. Occasionally looking back. The streets weren’t too crowded early but I felt scared how this running can be interpreted as any chase and since am alien to the local language I better be safe. Soon I turned back and ran towards the resort. Till date now knowing why the lady in front abruptly started running!
