What the Wuck Facts


Here's presenting some insanely insane What the Wuck Facts:

Fact #1. India is the world's largest democracy, with 1.2 billion people. (Know how many 0's that is ?)

Fact #2. 100 million people visit the Kumbh Mela (which happens every 12 years). The world's biggest gathering of humans.  (Again: How many 0's ?)

Fact #3. A man claims he hasn't eaten or drunk anything for 70 years. Doctors still don't know how that's possible.     (My theory  : He hasn't  lived in the age of junk food.)

Fact #4. Breathing the air for one day in Mumbai is equivalent to smoking 100 cigarettes. ( Woaah ....I'm at a loss for words)

Fact #5. We have the world's biggest family ! 1 man, 39 wives. 94 children. (I doubt that man has a TV. His family hasn't been touched by the evil daily soaps)



Fact #6. A man married a dog as an atonement for his sins. (I'm never letting that happen to me. There are hell of a lot of guys out here. You know like 800 girls for every 1000 boys)

Fact #7. Police officers in one state in India are given a pay hike if they have moustaches.  (I didn't know my college boys were planning to be Inspectors. *lol* )

Fact #8. There are more mobile phones here than toilets. (I'll believe that. With Modi Sarkaar stressing on going cashless (entry of Paytm), everyone is more concerned about what's going in than what's coming out. *I know that's gross*)

Fact #9. Children's day is celebrated exactly 9 months after Valentine's Day in India. (Now that's what I call having access to general knowledge)

Fact #10. 70% spices in the world comes from India. ( Ever met a teekhi mirchi ? *wink wink* )

Fact #11. In India, a polling station is set up in a forest for a lone voter in every election since 2004. (Now this makes me believe Human Rights originated in India)

Fact #12. India has more population than the entire Western Hemisphere on Earth. (Woaah...I'm speechless right now.)

Fact #13. Now this is for all the couples.There is a vigilante group in India known as the "Love Commandos" who protect people who fall in love from different castes from harassment. (Fall in love? Settle in India)

Fact #14. The airline "Go Air" hires only female flight attendants because they are lighter. Proof: The airline saves upto US $500,000 every year on fuel.   (Boys, need I recommend which airline to use?) *hehe*

Fact #15. Indian housewives hold 11% of the world's gold. This is the combined reserves of US, Ireland, Switzerland and Germany put together. (NEVER cry that you are poor)

So much did you score ? Go up and rate yourselves.

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…

I went to Goa with my parents. And trust me, it was fun. For one, you really don’t have to worry about money when you’re out travelling, shopping, eating or drinking. Secondly, you have a 90% success rate of going to all the places YOU want to go to, instead of compromising for the sake of your friends.

Now I stayed in Goa for 4 nights, two of which were in Baga and the other two in Candolim. Both places were booked via Airbnb. One advice: Avoid booking a hotel room, even if it’s near a beach (I don’t understand people’s obsession with beaches; they’re quite dirty and crowded). Instead,.......
