YPS is pleased to announce Karnataka Tourism Photo Contest for April 2017. The theme for the month is “Karnataka Landscapes”.
Karnataka is blessed with a rich variety of Landscapes. Karnataka has over 38,000 Sq.KMs of forests. Western Ghats has been identified as a bio-diversity hot spot. There are over a dozen major rivers, hundreds of water bodies, more than 10 major water falls, many trekking trails, large plantations, valleys, meadows, hills etc. These also change through the seasons to assume different colors and also present different skies, making it possible to have an ever changing canvas of the elements of nature. These living systems offer the travellers close encounters with nature. With such vast areas of untouched beauty, we expect to see photographs of spectacular view of the landscapes of Karnataka.
The summer has already started and it is predicted that this year it will be too hot. As YPS members are all nature lovers, we request you to put up some bowl of water in your terrace for the birds and small animals. This will provide them a great relief. These summer months, most of the places will be dry and hence, we are not seeing much of insects and butterflies during our outings.
As YPS Hall on Nrupathunga road is difficult to reach, we made alternate arrangements to hold the programmes for April at Venkatappa Art Gallery. Please note that the programs will be on SUNDAYs and will start at 5:30PM instead of 6:30PM.
Membership of all Individual Members who joined before October have expired on March 31st. Thanks to all those who have renewed. Members who have not renewed can renew till April 30th after which membership will cease. Payment for renewal is online and easy. Please renew at the earliest.
All members are cordially invited to the TNA Perumal Judging and Exhbition. Please find program details below and on the website.

Nrupathanka Road is closed for the next two months for major maintenance and beautification. Because of this vehicles are not allowed on this road. To facilitate easy attendance to YPS programs, the Executive Committee has made arrangements at alternate venues for some of the upcoming programs. Please check the YPS Website for the venue information for each event before starting.
However, due to non-availability of venues, some of the programs will continue to be held in the YPS Hall at the 3rd Floor of State Youth Centre. YPS can still be reached in one of the following ways:
On foot from KR Circle
By two wheeler/car through the back road that connects to Cubbon Park. The only way to access this road is from KR Circle through the road leading to Cubbon Park. This is now an one-way from KR Circle. Please take the first exit on this road and drive through the back side of PWD office to reach State Youth Centre. See the map below showing directions.
We deeply regret the inconvenience caused. Please reach out to any of the Executive Committee Members if you face challenges.
February was a hectic month with lots of activities. But it was a month that will refuse to go away from our memory for a long time. Sri. TNA Perumal, mentor for many and a living legend passed away on February 8th. Many of the YPS Members and senior photographers visited his home to pay homage to Shri. Perumal. YPS also held a meeting on February 18th to pay tributes to this great master. Many senior professionals participated in the program and shared their experiences. Shri. Perumal’s son Shri. Jayakumar and Shri. Perumal’s close associate, Shri. Nicky Cruze also joined us during the session. We all paid homage to Shri. Perumal with flowers. This is one loss, which the photographic fraternity cannot bear. We at YPS pray to God to rest him in peace.
YPS has also announced a Photo Contest and exhibition in memory of Shri. TNA Perumal. The Contest will have four sections, viz., Birds, Butterflies, Wildlife and Monochrome all of which are close to the heart of Shri. Perumal. Check perumal.ypsbengaluru.com for participation. Last date for participation is April 15th.
