First Ride to Bellandur Lake

Went on a 26 km ride on a self-charted route this Sunday. We could not manage to participate in the GGI CM the previous day, so we decided to make up for it. You can see the complete description of Sunday’s ride to Bellandur Lake on here. Before Sandip and I started riding cycles… Continue reading First Ride to Bellandur Lake

Maggi: Thy Name Savior

Who would not have, at one point or the other, not relied on maggi, in the absence of a.b.s.o.l.u.t.e.l.y any other options to quench ‘paapi pate’s bhook’. Stuck at home on a night, suddenly you realize there’s nothing at home to cook and its too late to step out to grab a bite, you turn… Continue reading Maggi: Thy Name Savior

Every day you happen to ask as well as answer the question innumerable times  “How are you doing?”. I found more people answering… Continue reading Mah Life ROCKS!!!


I am HAPPY Today!

I am talking about the passions they have pursued outside their profession. So, a doctor may be an outstanding cook and… Continue reading Are You a Somebody?


Not a Good Idea Sirji!

Idea Cellular’s new catch line for akkha India, “Walk When You Talk” may be trying to bring about a revolution to motivate people towards “walking” for fitness and health. Extrapolating the concept portrayed, it seems people do not have any time other than when they are talking to walk. Isn’t that a more serious problem?… Continue reading Not a Good Idea Sirji!

The Tale of an Inch

Cafe Inch on 100 ft Road Indiranagar used to be a hot spot 3 years back. It was conveniently located, at 5 minutes drive from our residence at that time. It had swanky interiors – with varied kind of seating, occupied a decently huge area, and attracted a posh crowd. It was really our favorite… Continue reading The Tale of an Inch
