So after lunch, we proceeded on our Mysore sight-seeing trip. Mysore is the Karnataka's second biggest city. It was the erstwhile capital of the Wodeyar dynasty and is considered the cultural capital of the state. It is also known as the City of Palaces. From what we saw, Mysore appeared to be a clean and well planned city with a heritage feel and quaint charm to it.
So I am back from my trip to Ahmedabad and Delhi. Well it has been one and half week but you know the law of inertia Of course, travel posts on my travel blog and reblogs here will be posted. Oh God I have so many pending posts to write – Mysore, Pondicherry, Mahabalipuram, Ahmedabad and New Delhi – that my laziness grows! Anyway so here are some updates.
She was born exactly a year ago…a miracle in her parents’ lives and in all of our lives. And she has turned one today!! How time flies! Still haven’t been to hold and cuddle her as she lives so far away. Thanks to Skype, her grandparents and aunts are surviving counting the days to her arrival in India.She has got six teeth now, is able to stand up holding table etc and is so very cautious by nature!! She laughs a lot when I sing the nursery rhyme “Hickory Dickory Dock” to her and she likes eating bananas just like her Reema mashi!
Its been 6 months since we moved to Bangalore. Visits from in-laws and parents resulted in a lot of sight-seeing in and around Bangalore. It is impossible to cover all the places in one day in Bangalore due to traffic and distance. This post is about all the places we have visited in Bangalore and an attempt to act as a sight-seeing/ tourism guide for any visitor.
As my readers may remember, I have moved to Bangalore or Bengaluru. It has been 3 months now. I haven’t started working yet and in-laws are here since two months…new place, new life, new routines were responsible for the blogging break. So, here are some random updates, thoughts and comments from the last three months of my blogging break. Hence the title… a new “My Random Thoughts” BREAK KE BAAD
# My M.E. results were declared at last…scored 73.5% aggregate. Yeyyyy!!!
or I AM BACK as they say in English. The blog post title is in Kannada (with help from a tweep)…but more on the language and my experience with it later. So I am back from a self-imposed blogging break – entirely out of laziness and shock of new life But ek blogging break to banta hai in all these years of blogging right? It has been more than 3 months since my last post!! Phew! Shame on me! But then, what could be a better occasion to make a comeback other than Diwali?
May millions of lamps illuminate your life with endless joy, prosperity, good health and peace forever Wishing you and your family a very “HAPPY DIWALI”
I know nobody missed me in this blogosphere. In fact my comeback got delayed day after day because of this reason also. No one mentioned my absence or rather that of my regular comments, no one asked about my whereabouts / well-being and I did not get any motivation to resume blogging, reading and commenting as usual Sigh! Out of comment space, out of mind…
More updates to follow in next post!!
And will be attacking your blogs with comments soon. Really scared to open the Google reader!!
My version of the famous song. D has gone abroad to Sweden and Netherlands for three weeks which has made the poet in me rise from slumber. The original song – click “Mere Piya Gaye Rangoon” and click here for lyrics and meaning.
This post was destined to be a movie review post but due to bad Internet connection, laziness, busy life and travel it got delayed and more delayed till it has now become a casual bulleted post giving my readers some random updates instead of a post having paragraphs. Sigh!! Such is the influence of Twitter. But then brevity is the soul of wit! But this is not a funny post either. Sigh!
After lunch and a little afternoon shut-eye, we decided to go sightseeing around Digha. Our first destination was the Science Center established by the National Council of Science Museums at New Digha. The Centre offers a variety of mechanisms to make science an enjoyable learning experience. There is a biology section with few animals, a physics section, a planetarium which holds evening shows and a park. Had fun time exploring all the mechanisms.
9th Dec 2010: It had got dark by the time we reached Digha station; all because we had missed the first train and got delayed by three hours. Digha is the most popular sea beach and tourist spot in West Bengal. It is known as “Brighton of the East”. Digha station looked quite new and clean. I guess to promote tourism, WBTDC has spruced up the place. Also there are 4-5 trains from Kolkata to Digha!
