Mothers day and more

It has been a relaxing weekend… have spent much of my time away from the laptop, though I have my little digital toy in my hand through out this weekend along with my brand new Camera. Yes, I haven’t written much about it here so far. I bought a Canon EOS 500D couple of months […]

Moonlit Mytri Night: Kaumudi Utsava


Spent my Sunday evening at Mytri Farms with Hpn watching this beautiful festival called “Kaumudi Utsava” in Moon light. We were invited by Nagesh Hegde, one of my favorite science writer. This is the second time I met him personally and I could even get a glimpse of his science presentation. He explained us about the moon from both angles, scientific and mythological. I did record his voice and will try uploading it as a pod-cast as soon as possible.

Couple of weeks back I had quoted one of my favorite song “Tera Eri Ambaradaage” as a title for my Kannada blog post at Sampada. This song was written by Dr. Dodda Range Gowda. I was lucky to meet him personally yesterday and talk to him about this post as well as the song. In fact hpn and AnilRamesh and myself were talking about him just before we hit the road towards Mytri.

Songs, talks by such great personalities in moon light and a nice dinner at the end. Altogether it was a great weekend spent away from work. Reached home at around 3AM after finishing few more scheduled tasks at hpn’s place. I’m yet to recall the actual meaning of “Kaumudi Utsava” and blog it here.

Watch out this space for pod-casts.

Watch Tera Eri Ambaradaage.. It means, On his chariot on sky, Sun is laughing. Wonderful lyrics. I shall put up its English translation some time for you all.


Short and drowsy weekend with Delhi6

After a long tiring week, I got a chance to sleep for long 14 hours which even ended up eating my one day week-off. Electricity board tried it’s best to keep me away from my gadgets. Anyways I was back online through GPRS on my phone, started tweeting for a while and then I saw Delhi 6.

I heard its a flop movie from few of my friends. Though, I wanted to watch this movie due to couple of songs which I watched on TV. They were indeed pictured pretty well. First half of the movie was totally dull and oscitant. They were just trying to tell how few NRI’s want to get back to their cities here in India and what they will have to face etc.. Once they land here, they have tried to show how India (In movie Delhi 6) and it’s people behave. Nothing special that we could see here. I kept watching the movie as it gained some momentum due to Black Monkey (Looks like they have nothing else other than this monkey from t he beginning of the movie). Hindu Muslim controversy, how Abhishek tries to be Monkey to save his heroin from a freak and why people end up beating him to death, how he gets to talk to his grand pa living in heaven at last how he is survives, all these puts an ends to the story. Ramayana has been used to links the families living in Delhi 6, Monkey and others. Few dialogues brings in smiles other wise, entire movie is dry… Here is one of the songs which I liked very much in this movie.

I’m bit sad now as I need more rest and can’t imagine working again for long hours from tomorrow morning. Long list of to-do’s and scheduled work huh!

Worst weekend @ Pizza hut

Pizza-hut was one of my favorite place for pizza’s. But today I got to think twice before entering into pizza huts. I ended up tasting rotten O’ Tomato and Grill O’ Delight to finish with my Weekend. I didn’t regret going to pizza hut last December and did enjoy the time spent with my bunch of collegues and even celebrated a birth day.But this time it was yak!. And nothing was a Delight at all at Pizza hut for the first time.

Once in a month or two I get chance to go out and have some food at good restaurant’s or pizza huts or at least spend some time in a coffee bar. Wish I had two week off’s like all other techies out there in the IT world. I would have also found a girl to date with ;) .

It used to be a great fun and my tummy used to feel enlightened almost ever weekend till last year as I used to spend my Sunday afternoons with Bala sir in a nice restaurant.

These days bad traffic and the quality of restaurants force us find alternatives and we even end up paying hell a lot of money. We also end up wasting lots of our free time during the weekends (If at all we get some free time). No peace any where.

Hopefully I will have a better week ahead of me at work.
