Thought thought all the time, not a word to jot...


(Caution: Author is developing a style to write seriously on lighter notes. Please don’t take this piece lightly!)

These days’ I am feeling quite privileged having a state, some greats call as, the Writer’s Block! As the Webster of the Era, widely known as Wikipedia, suggests Writer’s Block is a condition in which an author fails to produce new work. This also relates to the condition when an Author couldn’t recognize his own work’s worth and underestimates it.

I am regular guy learning to write pieces; comparing me with the ones who have proved themselves in professional writing is far from imagination. But the condition I’m in right now has at least something to do with the big words, the Writer’s Block.

CONDITION: I’m just not able to sit calm, sip coffee, have some water, eat pistachios, crack nuts, listen to some music, and write some piece! Hmmmm…it’s not though very untypical of me. It had happened a lot many times in recent past, but this time it’s different. Other times, I had problems ideating on the topics. This time I have zillions (use of Hyperbole) of ideas, only thing I lack is mood to sit calm, sip coffee…..and write some piece!

CURE: Had I known it, I would have applied it!!! But still, on a general note there may be a few curative measures, like:

1. Write some crap (please, unlike me, don’t publish it; it may ruin your ‘popularity’, if any)

2. Read as much as you can. Now this is one serious measure. The more you read, better you evolve. Reading will not get you out of your non-creative mode, but also open to you newer and wider dimensions. Participating in Blog-Communities' Contest may do wonders!

3. Do jot down the ideas you have while in the Block-condition; they may help you building stories later when you are back on track.

4. Do what you love doing! If you love to travel, get your backpack ready. If you ride, like me, get your bike done! If you are in love, that may be a reason behind the Block; get some time for yourself dude!

5. Meditate, if you can. It's proven to to brighten the subconscious which actually helps to be creative!

6. Try to to sit calm, sip coffee, have some water, eat pistachios, crack nuts, listen to some music, and write some piece! (Yeah that was a cliché, you got right mann!)

HELP: Yess, I need some serious help from the patient souls who have read this piece till now. Do share your Writer’s Block condition and how you fought with it' it will not only help me to write better, but also others too.


(PS: Author of this article never claimed himself a Writer. It’s just his self-admiration mode that gears him into comparing his feeling with the greater community of Writers!)

Trekking Ghansoli Gawli Dev (Parsik) Hill

It’s been there for geological ages, we have been looking at it for last about 4years and I have been planning to trek it since a long time. Finally, few weeks back, we trekked the Ghansoli Hill.

Ghansoli Hill is located at the eastern boundary of Ghansoli town, behind our office complex at RCP. The hill or better hillock is a part of small range that separates Kalyan and Navi Mumbai towns. A search on Google Map returns with a name Parsik Hill for it, though there is one more rather famous Parsik Hill in Navi Mumbai. We also found a NewsArticle, that talks about NMMC plans to develop Nature Awareness Centre at this hills and calls it Gawli Dev Hill. Here, we would be calling it Ghansoli Hill. I asked my colleague about it and he readily agreed. The very next Sunday we did it with another friend. We weren't aware of the route. All we knew is that a Central Road runs along the western edge of the hill and can be reached through the Vashi-Mhape road. We later found that there’s a Bus…

Riders of the Nation of a Billion - Dimensions and Horizons

Incidentally I wrote a post of my tranformation from just around the corner corporate junkie into a Rider (for sure, still gradually) few days ago. Now, here are the Indibloggers with a Contest for the Bikers of the Nation with Castrol guys.


When you look at the scenario of Biking in a general sense, you would be attracted by the road-rowdies and rookies who ride to spread nuisance and are mostly acknowledged for their deeds by the newspaper. Hooligans may be the right word.But, once you get involved with the passion, you would be able to see how the passion of Biking, or rather Riding, is evolving in the country where 2-wheelers over-power 4-wheelers by scores of galactic height, but have never earned respect on highways just coz they are the smallest-speeding machine there! I would try to let you through the Indian Riders tale, so that you  be able to appreciate how the riders of the Country are working, though in a segregative way, to evolve the Bikers’ Code for the Nation of…

An evening in the Chilika Lake

(This post has been published in TheViewspaper as The Paradise called Chilika)

This year seems to be much more happening than I expected. I realized it when I got an invitation from a senior colleague to attend his marriage at Bhubaneshwar. Hidden was another invitation to revisit the Puri-beach and also the Chilika Lake.


I hadn’t still come out of the hangover of my pan-India ride, when the date to fly to the City of Temples knocked at doors. Packing the very morning of departure with least pairs of casuals and 3sets of party wears, I joined Kaustav and Abhimanyu bhaiya on our tour de Chilika and Puri, also the Odiya Wedding.


Chilika Lake is the largest coastal lagoon in India and the second largest in World. It is an essentially shallow brackish water lagoon on the east coast, spread over the districts of Puri, Khurda and Ganjam of Odisa state. The lake, popularly known as Chilka, was designated the first Indian Wetland of International importance under the Ramsar Convention, in 1981. …
