Life Goes on …

February 5, 2010

First time I met this Man in his sixties , I knew he was different.A  person who stood by his family  under all circumstances.That was my Father in law, whom I consider to be my best  friend and guide next only to my grandfather. The time spent with him was  so enriching.

Heres the life lessons I learnt from him

  • Hold your self esteem high
  • Never  borrow Money
  • Manage within the resources you have
  • stand by your family come what may
  • Be honest and work Hard.

The list goes on  and throughout his life he has been a man who stood by his commitments.He never let me feel  that I was a Daughter In Law.He was more like a friend to me.He wanted to see me successfull and he very well understood what success meant to me.

He left us on 29th Dec 2009, succumbed to Heart failure. .I pay tributes to him. I will miss him day in an day out.

And I know his advices will continue guiding me ever after.

You will be with me Anna, {as I dearly called him } for the rest of my life .

Bangalore-Managalore day train journey

October 6, 2009

The journey goes into one of my most memorable journeys so far list.

We( my parents, mil,fil,Aarush) boarded the Yeshwantapur-Mangalore day train at
The train started at 7.30 ,luckily( will tell you why a little later) we had packed snacks( laddoos,chakkali/murukku,milk in a flask for aarush,choclates etc etc) for munching in the train.
At Tumkur station we had breakfast and then started the picturesque journey.
As we appraoched Hassan , continuous lush green fields( a feast to eyes) awed us every moment.The weather was also amazing, fresh and cool.Now started the most exciting journey, as the train started towards Sakleshpura and then into ghats.
We thought we would buy lunch but to our dismay found nothing enroute.( please be sure to pack enough food to last a day long journey as you hardly get anything enroute).Somebody told us that at subramanya station we would get lunch.Anyways, we hardly felt the need because the ghats had just started .The train started its ascend into ghats at around 12.30…absolutely no words can ever describe the picturesque terrains..which looked like an pista icecream with vanilla topping!!!!!! the clouds had covered the mountains completely at one end and the other side of the window was these dense forest ..hardly any habitation in between.It was only lush green forests , green green and green all the way and yes..the most important part was the TUNNELS in between.there are totally 24 tunnels..and some really long ones lasting for more than a minute.and on top of that the rains started pouring in and the whole ghats was drenched in fresh water…falls everywhere..falling down from every nook and corner of the ghats and deep valleys with our train crossing rivers on a high bridge now and then.sometimes the falls would fall on the train an amazing sight it was.
Camera cannot capture everything…its just as fresh as fresh leaf on my mind.due to rains there was a landslide just before Kukke Subramanya station.At 4pm we were stranded in a remote place..only a distant railway station was seen with absolutely deserted look and ofcourse the rain and the ghats with us enchanting us.It took 2 hrs for the workers( who are always on the train to handle such eventualities) to clear the mud on the track …poor guys..they had to work in the rain just to make sure we have a safe and beautiful journey.Salute to all of them.
Finally the train started and we reached managalore at 10Pm a 4 hrs delay due to rains and landslide.But the wait in the deserted ghat was awesome.
Its an untapped mine to be left that way coz it looks so untamed, wild, and beautiful.
For all those who would like to enjoy train trips, be sure to take this route coz i am sure it will leave you speechless and rejuvenate completely.
Also, be sure to carry enough food, dont adventure near the train doors,the valleys are really deep and forests are thick.
The arrival is at 6.30 pm at mangalore station, but we reached at 10 coz of land slide.
Happy journey to all those who are planning to take this trip.
Waiting for a chance to hit the ghats again.

Long drive on a scooty!!!memories from college life

September 16, 2009

Well the weather today in Bangalore is superb and takes me back into the memory lane.

I had just joined MBA and my good friend deepa ( my engineering friend) was working in a company.On a fine morning like today… deeps ( I called her so) and myself decided to go to Nandi Hills( a very picturesque place near Bangalore).The travel freaks that we were, immediately took scooty and started off at 10.30 Am.I bunked the classes and deeps was free that day.The best part was it started raining like hell enroute, but determined that we were and travel freak to the core, we enjoyed the harsh rain and continued our ride, got drenched completely, yet reached Nandi hills. The climb was easy on a scooty!and lo Nandi hills was submerged in clouds,We hardly could see anything beyond a feet distance and it was amazing sight.The place is so infecting that you dont feel like coming back.We could see a vast expanse of land and neighboring villages from the hill top, and the whole place looked like heaven on earth .
I still remember how breathless we were at the sight of clouds engulfing all over.
Nature- you are the best!
We spent some time there and came back and yes ended getting lots of ” ohh you silly girls..went all alone , how dangerous..its not a safe place” etc etc etc.. from friends and family.
YetI guess deeps and me still hold it as one of the most beautiful moments of our travel .
( This trip was one of the adventures of deeps and myself).
Today Bangalore is so lovely!

A typical office scenario..there are 10% of the office junta who are very obvious in their presence and give a life to the office.The rest are the ones who follow the rules laid down in the books of a company or the rules of this 10% junta.
