I woke up at 7 AM with help of my mobile alarm. Before I could snooze the alarm, the mobile died due to drained battery. Mobile was receiving occasional signal from Gaurikund and had completely stopped receiving any signal after Rambada, so I wasn't bothered about it. I had slept in my new hood, jeans and socks. I wore my shoes and got out of the room to see where I was. There wasn't anything visible last night apart from the pic (last image in the previous post) I took with high ISO settings. People in other room were already awake and were busy waking their kids.
I hadn't had any food since lunch the day before. Took 3 bananas and ate. There was only one ready to board bus to Gaurikund. But seats in the bus were warning me to cancel the plan further. Its legroom was so tight that it wasn't possible, at least for me, to sit there for 10 hours. No surprises, there were other passengers complaining for the same. Then started a new drama of seat allocation. No less than six people were allocating seats in the bus on the basis of legroom one required. I have never seen such a criteria for seating plan.
I asked the conductor approximate time it would take to reach Rishikesh. I got the answer from the man sitting beside me.
It had been 10 years since I waited eagerly for my birthday. The importance of event, its enthusiasm, its celebration had become a question for me. It is surely an event but if anyone asks me, its an event only for my parents, dadaji or a few close relatives. After my 14th birthday, I have never felt the excitement for 20 May. Neither anyone made it special for me nor it occurred special to me.
A very common phrase you'll get to listen everytime you visit an astrolger is "You should stop eating non-veg food." But does it matter? If yes then how?
Some people say that kind of music we hear, impacts us. Choice of music closely depends on the mood we are in. Just like mood selects the music, sometimes music generates the mood.
Last few months have seen a series of popular songs. These songs were played everywhere, from auto & buses to hair-dresser & dhabas to restaurants and so on. This created an environment or better word to use here is 'mood' that eventually led to the success of 'Kolaveri'.
During my trip to Ladakh, one morning we halted for breakfast at Lukung. We had home stayed at Spangmik and decided to take our meal at Lukung in the morning which was the next station in our journey back to Leh. Both these stations are situated at the banks of Pangong lake, the second largest salt lake of Asia, 16 km of which lies in India while 22 km belongs to China after the 1962 Indo-China war. One of the best things you find during a road trip to Ladakh are seasonal tented restaurants.
Recently I found FB Connect button missing from comment forms in a project I was working on. Like any developer my first step was to clear the cache but it did not get the button back. Second I firebug'ed the comment form and FB Connect button tags were intact. Before going any further I decided to verify if it was missing only from the comment forms or also from the registration form(another placement of the button in the same project).
