This month July 2013 would be remembered forever :) So much happened in last one month that I will have to publish it in a 2 posts series – PADE and CampNaNoWriMo.

Part1: PADE
Honoured to be Ace of PADE 2013
(*shy* and *blush*)
When I got to know about PADE by Sfurti and Ritu KT, only a few have confirmed to participate. And as started, मंजिलें जुडती गयीं -  काफ़िला बनता गया . 
Honestly, I was envy of the duo-girls that why I couldn’t come up with such an idea and at same time sceptically curious about its success. But, then I thought to let’s give my blog a marathon month and see what it may return. Not just a bumper improvement in viewer counts and different ranks (except IndiRank), this month brought me many a Blogger’ mates. This people count is what I love earning :)

The Big and Happy PADE Family
 As I am not as verse with words as Sfurti is, I am copying her

Punit Dubey "Mr. Photographer"
Shrikant "Mr.Out of the box"
Poonam "Ms Creativity"
Priyam "Yum posts"
Sini "The thinker"
Geetashree "The Scholar"
Pravin "Simple yet impactful"
Arghyadeep "Powerful words"
Anunoy "Magical words and powerful imagery"
Rio "Mr Philosopher"
Pankti "Ease and fun"
Meera aka a rat "Great nibbles"
Swaroop "Straightforward"
Prasanna "The Champ"
Prathamesh "Artistic"
Aliasgar "Talented"
Sammya "Colorful"
Ranjith "Mr. Creative"

I believe she has talked about each and every participant and if she has missed it, it’s her fault ;)

Two additions to the list:
Sfurti “Not Just a Mom
RituKT “Ms Experimenter

Sfurti, who blogs nonstop at Juztamom, is a lovely mother and knows to express her feelings with words. I remember Snapshooter: Level 4 photographer on Kenrockwell’s scale. She love photography to preserve the memories and writes to express her heart out!
My favourite PADE post from Sfurti’s blog is that of PADEDay 28 Special
A special photograph of a normal day
Ritu KT, blogger at ToRaveAbout, is young Indian lady in South Korea who wants to be an artist. She loves photography and never hesitates to share the trial pics she had taken while experimenting with her love D7000. (My circle of amateur photographers hate when people talk about technics but never have one or two pic to show that they may have taken trying that).
My favourite PADE post from Ritu’s blog is that of PADE Day 23 Window

Moon on a lazy Sunday morning
A big cheer to all the lovely participants, we seriously had a Big Fat Party through the month guys! I am sure we will be doing it again and with more participants more fun!

Banned Indian Books

Where the mind is without fear and the head is held high; Where knowledge is free; Where the world has not been broken up into fragments by narrow domestic walls; Where words come out from the depth of truth... Few days back when I came to know about a book on an Indian Business Barron on the Banned Indian Books’ List, the first thing that came in my mind were the lines from Tagore . What an irony, we live in a country, whose forefathers have dreamt about a nation without fear, about a nation with right to speech, right to knowledge; and where the Government enjoys the “privilege” to “freely” ban the books, censor what it feels offensive! Wikipedia describes Banned books as the books whose free access is not permitted. Further it says that the practice of banning books is just another form of censorship, and often has political, religious or moral motivations. In our country, banning books have got its history since the British rule days. In fact, few of the Books

...not just Right, it's My time to visit Melbourne NOW!

‘ Sir, wake up, it’s Victoria ’ some sort of voice-management, of course with due courtesy, and it banged on my ears again ‘ Sir? It’s Victoria, didn’t you want to get down here… ’ Fighting the universal conspiracy, I tried opening my eyes and listening to the conductor simultaneously,   yeaah multi-tasking ! ‘ Oh, yeah, thank you! Thanks !’ a formal smile, rubbed shoulders (it wasn’t crowded, I was yet sleepy) rubbing my eyes I stepped down of the tram. “ Wooo….Man! Where I am? This is not Kolakata, forget it, this is not even India !” I stepped down apparently from Kolkata Tramway at   Maidan   near Victoria Memorial, but it wasn’t the same. There was no   maidan , no typical Kolkata traffic, no Victoria Memorial and it was something else. Fishy! No it wasn’t fishy. I looked back at Tram, it wasn’t like Tram either. Highway 31 Bikers' Restaurant ‘ Have I had grass? No, neva! So, how did I disembark a metro when I picked up a tram an hour ago? ’ I

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’
