Life and Ride 'Resolutions' for the Year 2013

So, let’s call it a year. Through a lot of ups (!) and downs (yes!) over some 365 days classified in to 12months, the day is finally here, when I can finally say it ‘was’ a year and the coming ‘year’ would be actually better.


I, who belongs to the species of human beings generally called as brats, have shed a few layers of my not-so-narcissistic admiration for self in last year – to say. The way this all and that is happening (yes it’s still happening and not reached the death) I would never be able to love myself, reach the earlier level of self-respect ever, and yes I said ‘ever’. But the post is not again about the love of my life – I! It’s about what I am wishing from the coming year and for what I would actually try.

Life!
It isn't like this is for the first time, this goddamn life is such cruel to me, but the cruelty has taken an ugly turn this year leading to a point from where it would be if not impossible, just next to it to return back to where I wanted it to be. Ahh…a long sentence that I hate! But, again this post is not about I!
The year 2012, and its precursors too, taught me not to be over-smart, over-estimate – especially when it’s about relations. Sometimes, it’s not what we anticipate in desperation but rather milder. So, I won’t over calculate the situations but just allow myself to attempt and not shy away.
I also learnt that it gives you just one chance, if you are a usual fella, else one more to earn what you are longing for. And, if you are moron like me, you are ought to lose it – like in my case forever.

Blog
Last year was better on this front, got to know and befriend number of good bloggers. Yes for that part, I really feel lucky. I could travel more, except for the later part of year, and post more travelogues; though procrastination did mar me publishing a huge number of unfinished write-ups. I was able to be read by good number of people and be contacted for reviews (and that mattered a lot to me :D). This year will try to give my blog a better shape, a new banner and an attractive logo too. An unusual step would be limiting my social media presence, though trying to promote the blog.

Rides and Travel
I could not be Leh’d this year too, so saved a bunch full of leaves. Zanskar trip was certainly helluva adventurous with each day unfolding a new story, but we couldn’t trek. So this year I would try to trek it too. Leh (preferably Kanyakumari to KharDungLa), Zanskar trek would be first on priority list, but an overnight stay at Slope of Hell, a trip to Uttrakhand to shoot Star-trail, a trip to Arunachal and Andaman or Lakshadweep would for sure be tried with the same zeal. Backpacking Europe or Thailand is what I have already started planning.

A Secret Project
Have been thinking about this secret project since eons, but couldn't even start. Wish to start it soon, and share with you all asap.

What else…
A new look to Achtung! and new start to my Life; what else one could ask for that too in public. :)

Though I am in dead need of wishes for the coming year to be in my favour, I certainly believe extending my wishes to all and everyone would multiply it at least some zillion time, isn’t it! 
Have a Great year…..

  1. This photo belongs to you? OMG that is perfect Bokeh! I have never attempted it yet and it is my PADE theme #15 :)
    We didn't get acquainted till this point but I wish you all the best in your new year resolutions. You are doing quite good on the blog front already!

  2. Yup, this picture too has got a story. I was doing an assignment for my photography club, TruePixers.com, when I discovered this twig of shami plant against the tiny light bulbs on Diwali night...and Bingo I had my first composed (and not accidental) Bokeh!
    For most of the things I planned for the year - I am trying whatever I can; for the first few things - I am just sitting idle and let it take its own route...
    Thanks for the wishes :D

    i don't think you get just a couple of chances in life, punit...life is not cruel or kind, it has no intentionality, it's all about situations, circumstances and our choice of reactions and responses to those...sometimes we make great choices, at other times - not so much...we all through phases when we feel like this is it, all is lost, we couldn't have messed it anymore but the one thing I've been reminded, time and again, is that life saves the best for last - always

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…

What Travelling earns....People?

When travelling is your passion, you are bound to see a lot in your life, meet a thousand through your journey. I realised a day back only that most of us love to write what we did on our trip, what places we visited, how was the road, the hotel, the people. The People! Do we actually write about the people we met, or the men or women we spend a good time with?
I did meet few people on rides, while flying or on train journey who left a deep impression on me. But, never actually took pain, if any, to jot down about them. Just them and there stories. So, in this post I will be talking about the People only, a few of the few meeting with whom I still cherish.
If you RIDE a Bullet, you ought to know him There are many a people all over India and World, who love to ride. Few of them love to brag about there rides, most are just concerned about there rides. I belong to the earlier class, ride and blow your own trumpet! This person, about whom I’m writing this section, religiously define the la…
