Achieve Together Conference 2013

Procrastination, actual workload, a ‘beautiful’ mind in my skull – have been a few reasons to not to publish any travelogues, random thoughts and any other post in last few days. Tomorrow morning or better say within hours I will be riding after a long time and that too to Jaisalmer. But, before that would like to post a small request to help my FB/Twitter/Activist friend Tarang organizing Achieve Together Conference.


This is a one day conference, at Don Bosco High School, Matunga East on March 10, 2013,  with an aim to bring 120 children from across the Megacity together to be inspired by role models, engage them in some fun learning workshops and obviously let them have new friends. Vision is the world of tomorrow as being a place that not only encourages co-operation, sharing, a life of values but also a love for learning.

The entire day is structured leading us to the vision "learn and inspire, together".


Preparations are going on in full swing- children from all backgrounds are being invited- varied income levels, night schools, special needs children, vernacular medium, home schooled children and so forth. Facilitators have been finalized and Mr Jerry Pinto, the renowned award winning author has confirmed to speak at the conference.

You are cordially invited to be a part of this conference by helping the NGO shoulders the costs. A lot many people have came forward, but the costs far outrun what has been gathered. Could you therefore, contribute to the conference? A contribution of 2000 INR directly goes into helping 30 children learn at a workshop- art, drama, pottery, tree appreciation, scientific skills and so forth. Funds are being raised for food- breakfast, lunch and evening snacks. The organization is committed to using each and every contribution frugally and with wisdom yet not compromising on quality. All contributions are tax exempted. Their website can be visited at http://achievetogetherconference.com, contributions can be made here.




I want you to close your eyes and think of one person- that one person who said something to you: told you how much potential you had to change the world and live life to the fullest, that much beauty lay in your hands and how that person led by example. You had a role model- it is now time to pass on the favour. ~ Tarang

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. …
