Wrestling with BSNL hpn November 2, 2006 - 07:14
N R Colony is a very nice locality, except just that getting a broadband connection here is equally tough. For last one week, I've been enjoying living very close to the lovely vegetarian restaurants of Basavanagudi, our usual hang outs of DVG Road, and not-so-polluted air of Bugle rock park. It is back to all-Kannada neighbourhood, which feels more like home (more like Shimoga where I've lived for more years than any other place), but not connected to the Internet all this while.
There was this not-so-good-looking card lying in my wallet for a long time now. I had never taken it out for last many months. It was no Credit Card, but Accident Relief Care card that my father had subscribed for me. Everyone at our home now has a subscription each of that.
Met with an accident hpn September 23, 2006 - 18:09
Bangalore roads are never easy, even for the experienced. Few years back, I had travelled a great distance on my old bike through the dangerous NH 48 - Bangalore - ShravanaBelagola - Hassan - Shimoga and back without even a scratch or a tinge of bad experience. That was when I had my old and not-so-sophisticated bike as this one. But today was probably just a late dark day of [:http://www.physics.iisc.ernet.in/~baliga/quack/am.html|'Amaavasya'] for me.
Chennai Sojourn hpn August 1, 2006 - 01:24
Landed in hot and humid Chennai yesterday. No Internet here as Airtel messed up the roaming activation. So, if some of you have mailed me and not got a response - you know why :)
Not eating outside didn't do any difference this time. I'm here sneezing, coughing and eyes kinda burning - not able to do any task that I pick up properly for last few days. Its a sandpaper in my throat. It is more agony with temperature falling and rising like a seesaw ride. :P
Me and pramod were coming back from Majestic this evening after some small purchase we made there... when this unfortunate thing happened. I was moving straight ahead with my bike near hudson circle. Somehow, I was indecisive of the direction in which I was supposed to turn, and I slowed down to take a right turn. This guy from nowhere with his son on the back hits the back of my bike, falls down and this was enough for the traffic mamu standing there to call us aside.
