Trip to SHIVPURI

Hello friends,

I’ve just spent 3 days at Shivpuri, Uttarakhand from 3 to 5th Dec. It was an OUT BOND training prog from Maruti.This is a place (25 km from Rishikesh) many of you may not know has a unique beauty in it. God has flourished this place with green hills all-around, high current river The Ganga, beautiful birds and animals (barking deer and monkeys). We stayed in tents by the side of the Ganga. There was no electricity, no mobile network (only IDEA network was coming poorly) and it was far from any population. We were there three days only with the nature.

This program was jointly organised by Maruti and one travelling consultancy group, ‘Himalayan Outward Bound’ (www.outwardboundindia.com). So there was problem with food, drink, shelter and security.

First day we had activity like ‘free falling yourself on your trusted friend’s hand’ (see the photo), walking on Burma bridge (single rope bridge), river crossing by hanging from a rope.

At evening we sat together around fire to get some warmth. We enjoyed the evening with Singing, jostling and obviously with drink (my favourite Vodka Smirnoff).

Next day there were some foolish games (I don’t wanna talk about that). I tried to learn swimming in the heavy current of the Ganga with protective gears like life-jackets. Water was too cool to touch. But still I was not able to learn swimming. In the evening we had a skill-full exercise i.e climbing in a vertical wall of a building (at base-camp) through clamps. Very surprisingly I completed the climbing most quickly (in 2 min 10 sec) among our friends. At night we had ‘night navigation’. That was very difficult as we had to walk through narrow hilly way with torch-light in hand. Only 50% of us had torch. We had to go through the right way to reach the destination in pitch dark night. Atmosphere was shivering cold with temperature 5-6°C.

Next morning it was the most desired activity, ‘river rafting’.
The rafting was 10km stretch down-stream in the river. Guys you will never feel the fun when big waves smashed your raft and the whole raft tilting during passing through a rapid, disturbed current unless we go there and feel the pleasure of rafting.

Afternoon after lunch we had to return to Gurgaon. We became emotional while leaving the Himalaya.

This a distress call to all TWM folks. This has been the longest duration of inactivity for TWM. So is it that we are all too busy or have all of us hit the writer's block. Let's break the spell of inactivity....HOW?? WHAT SHOULD I WRITE ABOUT?? I have an incomplete draft, shall I post that? May be I will do a recap of the past few days..No mood to write paragraphs.. Connect the dots yourself.. * Kaminey - Movie was good, the ending could have been better..The bong mafia coming with a long gun to the fight scene was really comic..Fahid Kapoor ki acting mast thi..waifey aap log ye movie dekhey kya?? * Books - Finally I read the book Love Story by Erich Segal..Hmmm the story is good but the effect of the classic book has not yet got into me..Meanwhile I am also reading 'The Great Indian Novel' by Shashi Tharoor..I will surely recommend this book..Tharoor has splendidly blended the tales from Mahabharata into the modern Indian history.. *Movies - I watched 'Littl

"Trip Kela" season is back!!

"We had joy,we had fun,we had trip kelas every season but the things we used to plan were seasons out of time" Wow!! Seems like the "Kela" season is in the air again!! Why is it that whenever WE plan something ,something has to go wrong!! On our maiden trip to Goa, I had to back out coz my dad was just outta hospital.So I had to be at home.Before our second trip,we had so much discussion regarding a "reunion" trip to Darjeeling during Convo.What happened was evrybody backing out the last month.Raj said that he has already booked tickets for home.Rathz,supposedly, didn't get any tickets for returning to Kolkatta from Cuttack & there I was in Kol doing nothing.Though finally we did go to Digha & the trip was gud BUT our unbeaten record of "Flop Plans" continued. Now, we are probably gonna add an another feather in the cap.The highly anticipated Goa trip which had created so much ripples across the cyberspace(blog,gmail & orkut)

And The Warrior Returns...

Whoa! They call me a professional blogger and I haven't been able to write a single word for any of my personal blogs, be it TWM :: Online , Shayon's Labyrinth or even Timeless Imagination . I guess, that's what happens when all you do, during the day, is blog and then when you come back home, WarCraft is the only reason that inspires you to open up your laptop's lid and hit the power button!   I wouldn't really say that I am stressed out, thanks to my new job as the Chief Editor of WATBlog , one of country's leading advertising and technology blogs. After all, how many have gotten the opportunity and luck (this is something very rare in my destiny) to convert their hobby, their love, into a profession? The down side is, WAT is a startup, in essence. It just turned 2 , the month I joined, and we have an employee strength of just 12. Yes, you read that right. So, we realize that there is a lot of potential in the market and since our niche is very nascent, it
