Guruvayur this place is more or less a tourist place..:) with the temples. One can see the price of certain things which are so high...and basically most of the ppl when they come here they like to buy certain things ...may be as a token of rememberance :)
I also bought...a simple wooden carved book (single book...like Quran, Gita, Bible),keeping stand..:) Kerala basically has lot of Elephants..and they are considered very auspicious..hence are used in many religious functions and other traditional events. I saw many of them..decked with ornaments and so close view wow...one feels so strong and powerful just by looking at them...its a proud feeling :)

We were here for 2 days ...frankly speaking here the sun was shining so bright that I felt ...this part of Kerala there was no rain...but that wasn't the case...there were some little showers..but mostly it was sunny..hot and humid...I enjoyed the food and looking at places..!

I was very excited to leave as we were taking train back to …

Train journey...I always loved it...as train journey in India are long ones & inexpensive..a common man's mode of travelling ...:) and...watching all the scenes and passing by different parts of the country ...gives a feeling of touching every bit of it...just coz..it takes you from one province to another...and one can see the change...right from the language...traditional clothings...gestures...even the styles of vendor's selling..its just amazing..!!!

One father is more than a hundred schoolmasters

a father is someone that
holds your hand at the fair
makes sure you do what your mother says
holds back your hair when yor are sick
brushes that hair when it is tangled because mother is too busy
lets you eat ice cream for breakfeast
but only when mother is away
he walks you down the aisle
and tells you everythings gonna be ok


Yes...that's how my Dad is :) I feel so proud to talk about him...infact I have this dream of writing a book on him...its composed in my mind...and as I think about it...more..I feel it will be a book on my childhood :) and my life...so then...am I writing book on myself???... these thoughts have often made me to stay away from writing :)...My relation with my dad is so different...we speak little but we both know how much we love eachother and the respect that I have for him...that I can do anything for his happiness :).
Even before I was born...my Dad had decided my name :) ...he said if the baby is going to be a boy...then mom will decide the name :)...this makes …

This is a cake...actually the brown leather bag below shown is also a cake ;) isn't that amazing.?.I often tell the person who sent me this...that these cakes are good to see..forever..as we will never be able to cut them and eat ..lol..!

To tell my experience regarding baggage collection...I thought its better to be with a bit of sweet...such as this cake ..lol..! ...as I reached Bombay airport coz someone from the office had called me to come & collect my luggage...and when I reached ...seems like there was some communication gap within..and some started blaming eachother as why did you called customer all the way here...:) ...listening to these conversations...I was not happy...as I mentioned my journey was not pleasant..:)..and I jumped up to them saying I was told and hence I made this trip..anyway...seems like they didn't cleared my luggage from the cargo itself...and hence the dilema ...anyhow coz I ...was not happy ...it made them to go through the cargo procedure..…

Never meet trouble half-way!!!!!

The journey was pleasant :)...I was reading the News Paper and enjoying the site scene :).and then...hehe I believe now what my colleague says about me 'Trouble' ....my journey from the beginning is with trouble ...lol....we reached a place called Lonawala and the traffic was jam...people say it's a 2 1/2 hours journey due to the new highway that's been constructed between Pune & Bombay.. but there was this Gas Tanker got burst..and hence the whole highway was jam one could see the vehicles ....so close to eachother...one thing is interesting about the driving ... believe me each time am saying to myself...God..it shouldn't touch haha and he it didn't ...here I don't see anyone following the basic traffic rules...everything is on common understanding....there is no 'yield' &…

I am so glad that I got a call from the airline industry that my luggage has arrived and I will be travelling back to Bombay from the City of Pune...:)...!!

While I was coming from the airport..I was so zapped to see the developments in and around the city...the highway, and around it the rest of the developments..its really good to see the progress of any city and then the country as..it gives more opportunity to the people ...it is always from a minority acting in ways different from what the majority would prescribe that the majority in the end learns to do better.

I am glad to see everything...as now a days everyone is predicting Economic powers...India & China by 2020...one can see it :)...feel it in the air.....There exist limitless opportunities in every industry. Where there is an open mind, there will always be a frontier.

Security is a kind of death....:D

People travel to wonder at the height of the mountains, at the huge waves of the seas, at the long course of the rivers, at the vast compass of the ocean, at the circular motion of the stars, and yet they pass by themselves without wondering.......!

Yes...am back...but not with the same pace :D...well...now I understand why some of my friends couldn't listen to my 'radio blog' ;) ...but even before that....about my trip to Bombay...lol...During my flight I made lot of friends on the way...I had a connecting flight via Moscow....all this time I was enjoying the trip until I reached..Bombay to collect my baggage after my customs clearance...!
