The Weekend

So here's the situation. (It's a full 7 days,so pay close attention to the chain of events)
  • Monday is your last paper (gets over at 5:30 pm). You chill the entire evening.
  • Tuesday is a holiday. Since it's a first after studying for one whole week, you find no problem in whiling away your time.
  • Wednesday, your college decides that you have had your share of enjoyment, so they call you for 2 marketing lectures. 
  • Thursday and Friday turn into unexpected holidays because the teachers are doing supervision duty. On the former, you go out furniture shopping. The latter is spent in reading books.
  • Saturday is the most hectic day of the week. Lectures until 11:30 am. Next you have to go for an interview in Andheri (Train - Metro - Rickshaw). Not to forget that you enter the wrong office and then while coming back take the wrong metro. *hehe*.
  • The same day instead of coming back home you need to go to Bandra after which the next stop is Ballard Estate (VT) for the Bombay Times festival where a concert is being held. *phew*. Tired already ? Don't forget the journey back home. You don't want to stay there all night do you ? SoBo can look a bit intimidating during the night.
  • Now because you're sooooo tired on Saturday, you end up compensating for it by sleeping half of Sunday off. Wake up time : 11:00 am.
  • Journey back home again. In time for lunch, sleep, wake up and now you're faced with the big task of wearing a 9 yard saaree. *tired before the party already* Thank God for ACs though !
  • Wedding in the evening. And since it's an Indian #shaadi , naach gaana toh banta hi hai !
  • Monday morning is college but since you are an FY student and India is a free country, you decide not to go. 
So the big question is :

What do you do the entire day ? 

Especially when you're sick and tired of your phone, your books are occupying an AC cardboard box (& it's really too much work to take everything out) , the home theatre speakers are dismantled & the portable speakers show an almost 5% charge. And oh ya, your net speed is at 2 mbps (thanks to you) so video watching is totally out of the question.

This may not hold true for all cases. Kindly ignore if that's not your reaction.
  1. The lazy person - Just sleep. There are bonus hours. Anyways, sleeping is also doing work !
  2. The studious person - Go to the Mumbai University website and check the syllabus. Start studying.
  3. The smart guy - Check available job options and earn some money. Time to be financially independent.
  4. The creative girl - Open DIY videos and make something !
  5. The movie buff - DDLJ . Or maybe Dear Zindagi.
Me : Just log in to Gmail, open Blogger and start writing ! ..........The gharelu nushka when nothing else seems tempting. This always does the trick !

Part 1 - Around Goa in 72 hours

Others would ask, “Goa jaake peeya nhi toh kya kiya?”. I, on the other hand would ask, “Goa jaake ghuma nhi toh kya kiya?” Now one would tell you that churches, beaches, drinking and clubbing are the only things to go for in Goa. But that isn’t the case at all. There sure is a lot more to do than just sit in your room or laze around the beach. Especially when you’ve driven 14 hours to reach your destination. Phew.

So what did I do? I took the car (and then scooty; with a GA registration) and drove full North Goa to South Goa. Out of the 1314kms that we drove, 100kms happened within the state in 3 days.
Day 1 we went to Baga beach in the morning but since neither I nor my dad had any plans of getting wet that morning, we headed to Fort Aguada, past Sinquerim beach for some sightseeing.

 This place is around 10kms (30mins) from Baga. It’s up on a mountain/hill and is a famous tourist spot. How’d I know? The number of cars were a lot and it felt like half of the family tourist crowd cam…

1st road trip – 1314kms – Mumbai-Goa-Mumbai

The journey is more important than the destination. I learnt driving 2 years ago (enrolled for a driving class 3 days after my 18th birthday) and since then I’ve driven on every possible type of road. But I wanted more. Flying by air didn’t excite me. I wanted to look out of the window to trees and open roads; not clouds. 2 weeks ago after lots of pleading or logical reasoning (as I like to put it), I finally convinced my parents to accompany me on a road trip to Goa. At first, they were a bit apprehensive of the length of the journey (owing to previous bad experiences with bus travelling), but then again, you gotta do what you want to do.

The route we selected was Mumbai – Pune – Satara – Kolhapur – Amboli Ghat – Baga, Goa. We only did one stopover for the night at Pune. The rest was a continuous drive with only a 45 minute halt for lunch before the start of the 73km long, 3.5 hour Amboli Ghat.

Note: Just after the food mall at Lonavala and before the start of the ghats, is a small s…

CRPF Personnel martyred in J&K

The Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) is the largest of India's Central Armed Police Forces. The CRPF's primary role lies in assisting the State/Union Territories in police operations to maintain law and order and counter insurgency. With 239 battalions and various other establishments, the CRPF is considered India's largest paramilitary force and has a sanctioned strength of 313,678 personnel. 

Yesterday, at 3:15pm, a Scorpio driven by a Jaish suicide bomber who was a local youth carrying a huge amount of explosives, deliberately crash banged into 1 of the 78 trucks which formed part of the convoy carrying approximately 2500 CRPF personnel who were returning from their vacation and proceeding to resume work in Awantipora, 30kms from Srinagar.
