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’ ( 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

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

When I escaped death !!!

12th June'13, 10.30 pm : I was driving back from a dinner party at dizzying speeds of around 80 KMPH inside a city. Then in my  psychedelic drive (yes I get high without alcohol), I saw a signal square few 100 meters ahead. I decreased the speed ( Signals are switched off after 10 pm in Nagpur so exercised caution ) to 60 KMPH (I am an engineer and I like my exact figures) but my car jumped off a speed breaker which I could not spot in the city darkness . I thought I controlled my car by the time I reached the signal square but  baaaaangggg !!! Few seconds later - I realized I was still alive!! saved by the airbag. Take a note everybody. The same day during daytime around 4.30 pm, I was feeling restless with a feeling of fear & anxiety inside me. A friend inquired and I replied back "I can feel something bad is going to happen with me today". That night I was hit by a speeding car straight (at 90 degrees) on the driver's door. Upon impact
