    Peoples’ faces light up when I say I taste chocolate for a living, but it is not always delicious. I also have to taste defective chocolate, which have a small room, not allowed to talk and parked in front of a computer to log information. Sometimes the room has red lighting to disguise the appearance of the chocolate, so I can evaluate it only by taste, not appearance. I can sample as many as 30 chocolates per day, so as to keep my plate active, I spit the sweets back out. That’s another not-so-glamorous part of the job. Between samples, I wait half an unsalted cracker biscuit and I chew plain warm water, as carbonated water and ice numb one’s senses.
    First I smell the chocolate and logo its aroma. I also listen: if chocolate doesn’t sound crisp when broken, it may be a sign it’s old or was improperly stored. Then I place one inch bit in my mouth and leave it there for few seconds. I press it against my plate and let it melt, recording the four basic tastes-sweet, sour, bitter and salty, Then I blow out short puffs of air through my nose. Certain sense receptors in the back of our head are stimulated by oxygen. They allow us to smell food when we chew. Exhaling sharply can bring out aromas like berry, mushroom, tea, citrus, beeswax, toast, cinnamon and savory spaces that are sometimes too suitable for the nose to catch. I log these attributes, too along with the texture.

    The Kittur Fort
    One can see today only dilapidated walls and ruins of the great fort which was once known for its strength. The most important landmark as one goes towards the fort is the ‘Bahadurragad’. Situated to the southwest of the fort and outside of it, on a natural hillock, the highest in the plain, the ‘Buhadurgad’, which was the watchtower, provides a most panoramic and commanding view of the sparsely wooded surrounding region of green grassland, fading, as if gradually, into soft contoured hills in the west and the horizons on the other sides. To the north of the tower is ‘Ranagattikere’ where Rani Chennamma fought her last stubborn fight against determination.
    The actual fort, circular in plan, consisted of double walls, separated by moats on the outer sides, with semi-conductor bastions on exterior of the outer wall. It had originally the main gateway on the east, approached by the causeway across the outer moat known as ane Honda which was used for bathing the elephants.
    The entrances through the walls are deliberately not aligned, evidently in the interests of security. After passing by the winding path through the walls, one is led to the front side of the imposing main entrance of the palace near the northern arc of inner fort wall.
    To the south of the palace, inside the fort, are the ruins of horse-stables and foundations of residential buildings, probably meant for the important officials of the palace. To the southwest is the heavily built watchtower relieved by a series of parallel buttresses at regular intervals.
