2014: The Year it was

Julley!

Second word that best describes me is procrastinator. You don’t need to ask me why, check the last date I posted something or in fact the fact that I am posting The Year it was on the fourth day of New Year tells it well. And, now when you ask what’s the first word, I promise I will write on it someday soon (God promise it is :p)

This year had really something I wish to have every year – lots and lots of travelling. It all started with solo Kutch ride and ended with a drive to Murudeshwar, I changed job – travelling played a big role in that too, I met someone and realized that there still can be a life (met momentarily, realized - well, perhaps on real terms), I almost touched all the corners of the country – chronologically Kutch in West, Leh (finally) in North, Imphal (yippy) in East and Murudeshwar in South.

Only thing that I regret about the year was less of riding, though travelling did compensate it to a good extent. Also, that I couldn’t write, not that I didn’t want to but I actually couldn’t for no reasons as such.

And when a picture has a capability to tell a thousand words, a lazy bum like me of course resorts to pictures:

That's how the 2013 ended and I started a 2014...on a solo Kutch ride
Finally Leh'd...no further comments!
Four new wheels joined my little world...what a better way to Celebrate- we rode to Banaras...
Just one day for me in London
Yippy! NE! Finally I could go further East of Kolkata....Assam, Nagaland and Manipur :)

Scuba was the driver...but we finally drove and ended the year 2014 at Murudeshwar
I couldn't ride much...but sometime just One day with your Bullet mates is like everything in World...


So, I touched all the corners and did more than I can write (another excuse for my inability to write ;) Any resolutions for the year - No way! Travel, be Happy and Learn to have a Life (half is learnt, rest is to be built). Amen!

Julley!

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…

A Day at Global Vipassana Pagoda (A Photo Story)

What I like most about the cities we live in is the places we generally not aware about. Like the case of one of its own kind Butterfly Park of Thane, which is at stone throw distance from my place and I came to knew about it a few months back only. Then there is this Pagoda – another one of its own kind – world renowned and still not known to many city dwellers. We visited this place to take pictures and let me confirm it, we were stoned by the colors and the mystical sky (check out the Photo Story at the bottom of the post)
Located at Northern most corner of the Megacity of Mumbai, across the Gorai creek, Global Vipassana Pagoda is a meditation hall built out of gratitude to the Buddha, his teaching and the community of monks practicing his teaching (Wikipedia).  The Pagoda is also known for being built on the world's largest stone dome without any supporting pillars, at height of ~29 metres and external diameter 94.82-97.46 m. It is, thus, twice the size of the Gol Gumbaz Dome in…

AshtaVinayaka Yatra with Bisons

(This post has already appeared on Bisons Ride Hard website, to check out click here) Ever since I read Vinni’s post on last year’s Ride of Faith, I have been waiting for this year’s ride. The day I came to know about the Bison’s schedule, I started preparing, until I realized I don’t have leaves. Few days left to the ride, multi-reminders received and I was like, will I be able to make it? Something happened, meetings deferred, jobs got completed and I was able to ask my boss for leaves; and, who can deny you leaves that too for a Ride of Faith, Ride to AshtaVinayaka! I felt blessed that day, and now after the hard ride we had, I know I’m blessed! We are a nation of faith, which plays an immensely large role in our lives, being homely, officially or on the tar. Though Bisons have started riding hard the day they first met at BKC on a fine Sunday evening of July 23, 2011 at BKC; official announcement was made on the auspicious day of Ganesh Chautrthi, Shukla Paksha, Bhadra maas, i.e. Se…
