Mom

Came across something beautiful on facebook the other day, so thought of sharing with you all...

 Dedicated to the most beautiful woman in your life...

 Your mom carried u in her womb for 9 months.

 She felt sick 4 months with nausea, She watched her feet swell & her skin stretch & tear,

 She struggled 2 climb stairs, she got breathless quick,

She suffered many sleepless nights,

 She then went through excruciating pain 2 bring u into this world.

Then, she became ur nurse, ur chef, ur maid, ur chauffeur, ur biggest fan, ur teacher, & ur best friend. 

She's struggled 4 u, cried over u, hoped d best 4 u, & prayed 4 u.

Most of us take our mom 4 granted. 

But there are people who have lost or never even seen theirs...

 Appreciate her...

iMAX !

So finally I planned a trip to Hyderabad to visit my sis and also got tickets to watch The Dark Knight Rises at Prasad's iMAX :) Yaay !

 I had seen TDKR on the first day at a normal theater, but now I really wanted to see it on iMAX. I only knew that iMAX had the biggest screens, but never knew too much technicalities of it. So then I did some research and found that iMAX experience was totally different - with twice the size of a regular film at 70mm, it was bigger, better, brighter and louder. Prasad's is pretty good, the seating was so inclined that nothing comes in your way while watching. The rows were horizontally curved like an arc, the screen was so huge that it fills your entire peripheral vision. TDKR had around 72 mins of iMAX footage which was pretty good. The proportion is so awesome that when you see a person conversing on screen, it felt that you are standing next to that person in the conversation. It just feels that you are in it. Imagine you are travelling in a flight and when you look out of the window, you can see small cars moving, lamp posts, and sometimes people also ! It was the same experience while watching an aerial view of Gotham city :) There was so much of detail in every frame, it just felt so real! Truly, hats off to the people who invented this technology and have taken movie making to a whole new level. For all those out there who have not yet had an iMAX experience, just go and watch it.

It's A.W.E.S.O.M.E !

Bangalore - Kolli hills - Yercaud - Bangalore

23rd June saturday morning 3 bikers, or the 'Cruising Sultans' I must say, started off to kolli hills. Okay, first let me intoduce ourselves. Manas owns a Machismo 350, and Pramod, a Thunderbird and both avid bikers. I was meeting both of them for the first time that day. After completing some preliminary checks, we started from Electronic city, Bangalore to Kolli hills, somewhere between Salem and Namakkal, around 270km from Bangalore.
View Larger Map We started at around 6:30 in the morning, enjoying the cool, fresh morning thundering through the highways towards Hosur. Came across another group of around 15 - 20 bikers who called themselves as 'Knight Riders'. Stopped near Dharmapuri for breakfast at a roadside joint (aah ! I just love the idly dosas there :), and continued our way to Salem where we stopped for fuel. We continued on NH7 south of Salem towards Namakkal for another 35 kms and then took a left a few kms after 'Paravasa Ulagam' which can be seen on the left of the highway. Took a left after reaching Senthimangalam, and then asked the locals and found our way to the ghats. The way up consisted of 70 hairpin bends and it was an awesome ride. The bends were not very steep, and with considerably large curves and covered with trees all the way through. Finally we reached Semmedu, had some pineapple slices, and then continued our way another 3 kms to Nallathambi resort. Kept our bags n stuff over there, had lunch and moved to agaya gangai falls. Agaya gangai falls is around 10 km from nallathambi resort, and we had to climb down around 1000 stairs. There was not much water at the time we went, but it was beautiful. There was a pool of water which we had to cross to go to the other side where the water was falling from above. After a nice bath, we headed to a viewpoint, where the whole village of Semmedu and Rasipuram was visible below. Met some bikers there, and the first thing they asked us was, "Three people on three bikes? no pillion?" we smiled :) They were saying some stories about their expeditions in a 1986 Yezdi. Returned back to our resorts after that, had some nice dinner, and went to sleep talking about ghost stories :P Next day we left for Salem after having a buffet breakfast at the resort. Stopped for fuel at Salem, and then left for Yercaud. With around 20 hairpin bends, the climb was amazing ! The curvy roads were just a delight :) After reaching the top, we headed straight for lunch at Shevaroy's. Visited thendral view point and pagoda view point, and then started our way back home. That was when the adventure started :) We saw a map at a park near the lake which showed a way to 'bangalore new link'. So we decided to try that out, and as we went for about 5 kms, my bike decided not to start. The acid from the battery had corroded the clamps connecting to the battery. It took us a while to figure out the problem, meanwhile a sadhu who was standing nearby was kind enough to give us the number of a mechanic in Yercaud. Brought him and problem 1 solved. Resuming our journey, we went north of yercaud, through the winding roads that went around coffee estates. The roads were so beautiful that we forgot to even notice that we were heading the wrong way. After about 20 kms, it struck me that we were not climbing down the hills, but just going around. We found out that we were on the wrong way and instead of going and joining at dharmapuri, we were heading towards Arcot and then Salem again. Turned back, and went till Nagaloor, took the deviation and climbed down. Witnessed an amazing sunset on the way, and just as things were going the right way, we hit some really bad roads. A few kms from Danishpet the road was under construction. The hairpin bends were only stones which would give way if we braked, we were in for some off-roading. Manas had a small fall and luckily nothing happened other than a broken right mirror and leaking carb. A few taps on the carb's dislodged needle and we were back on track winding through the villages and finally reaching Dharmapuri at around 9. Had dinner at a roadside joint, and continued our way back to Bangalore.

A thought !

Sometimes in life, you are put in a situation where you have to make a decision. Decisions that can change the entire course of your life and make you who you are today. When everybody tells you to take the well laid path, you say 'NO', follow your gut, instinct, or whatever you call it, and take the other one instead. And then when you look back, everyone else is amazed how this guy got there to the point where he is now. Trust your gut. Beleive in your instincts. Listen to your heart. Live life. - Austin Perez

No Strings Attached

I wanted to take this kinda shot for a long time, and just got the opportunity :)
The line that is seen going across the frame is the path of the tail light of an aeroplane. The red lights are the tail lights that keep blinking at regular intervals that are seen equally spaced along the white line.
