Just watched 27 dresses directed by Anne Fletcher.
Jane(Katherine Heigl) ha always been good at taking care of others, but not so much in looking after herself. Her entire life has been about making people happy- and she has closet full of 27 bridesmaid dresses to prove it. One memorable evening, Jane manages to shuttle between wedding reception in Manhattan and Brooklyn, a feat witnessed by Kevin(James Marsden), a newspaper reporter who realizes that a story about this wedding junkie is his ticket off the newspapers bridal beat.

Took some time out to visit the Shivappanayaka Palace here in Shimoga.
Shivappa Nayaka (reigned 1645 - 1660), also known as Keladi Shivappa Nayaka, was a notable ruler of the Keladi Nayaka Kingdom.
The Shivappa Nayaka Palace is located amidst the busy streets of Shimoga. The liberal use of wood for the construction of the palace renders a rustic look to it.
The open courtyard has octagonal wooden pillars and two flights of stairs. It is flanked by rooms on either side. The upper storey has two rooms and sixteen wooden pillars. It is said that the balcony of the palace was used to conduct durbars (court of a native ruler) when the king paid a visit to the town. Rajaram, the son of Maratha king Shivaji, is said to have taken refuge in this palace when he was attacked by Aurangzeb.
