2016

It’s been a long time that I have blogged. The last one was last year. And it’s already 3 days into 2016.

Thanks to my daughter, I am enjoying my time away from the screens. She has been keeping everyone busy these days. She is all over the house.

I could only complete about 1800 kms last year on my bicycle. This year, I should improve it by at least 50%. Its not like a new year resolution though. Let’s see.

Happy new year. I know its a bit late, but as you now know, I was kind of super busy all these days.

5 Things About Life

1. It is never fair. Never ever. Well, may be at times when it is unfair to your enemies, or people you hate so much that you wish them death.

2. You always need help. Wherever you go, and whatever you do, no matter how intelligent or rich you are, you always need someone’s help.

3. There’s never enough time. You might be the kind of person who loves to sleep, or like me, who hates sleeping. Either way, you never get enough time.

4. You will not be understood at times. It was the same even with Einstein. An Einstein could only understand Einstein. And since most people are no where near like you, be ready to have heated arguments at least 5 times a week. At times you would be crazy, just like Einstein, and you wouldn’t find an Einstein who would listen and understand you.

5. Don’t believe in destiny. Believe me. Hahaha.. OK don’t believe me. It’s just a concept. It just doesn’t work in real life. I wasn’t destined to write this post. I wasn’t sleepy, and was thinking about life.

The holidays are here

2014 is coming to an end in a few days. And celebrations have already started all over. Everyone is gearing up for the holidays, packing their bags, and are all eager to vanish away from the busy life.

Here I am, still “Wasting Life!!!”.

This is probably going to be my last post of 2014 unless my wife gifts me a Lamborghini on the New Year. 😀

Wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

30,000 kms of riding. What next!!!

Riding away
Its been close to 4 years that I got this machine. And 30k kilometres doesn’t sound that big. The longest distance that we covered in a day was about 370 kms in a day. And the other day, on my way back home. So, the longest trip was about 750 kms in 2 days, although we had a 3 day break in between. The plains, hills, the sun and the rains, made that ride, one to remember forever. I keep planning my next long trip all the time, but something or the other always comes up. Monsoon is here, and I really like riding in the rains. I have started liking the splashes of drain water from other vehicles somehow. I don’t actually love them, but I don’t care about them these days. Perhaps, they are a part of the package.
 
I am 31 and I am married. So are the friends. Everyone is busy. The bachelors of my batch have become extinct. Some of them still jump at the idea of going on a bike trip in the rainy seasons. But schedules keep clashing. And some of them have upgraded to 4 wheels. I still haven’t yet. And they grin at the idea of a bike trip. For one reason, they wouldn’t want to get wet or get sweat. The other understandable reason; they spent loads to be behind the wheel. Some of them wouldn’t even mind sleeping in the car. A ride on 4 wheels is also equally enjoyable, its just that I am still young for that kind of comfort. To remind once again, I am 31 now.
 
On my 31st birthday, I wanted to buy myself a bicycle. Well, go on, laugh away on me. But I was serious. And still pondering on the idea. The only thing I am worried about is the crazy drivers of the city roads. But other than that, I think I should just go and buy one right now. Why am I not doing it then? Frankly, I have my doubts. To remind you again, I am 31, but I still feel young like a 25. OK, that was really funny. Go on, have a LOL moment. But I have a few examples to refer to. There were at least 2 of my friends who had bought bicycles in their early twenties. They were serious for about a month, but they gave up soon enough. So I am not sure if I would be using that motor less vehicle for long. But, nevertheless, I think I will take the risk. A part of the package again?
 
And now that I have blogged about this, Google will show me ads about buying a new bicycle and also buyers for my old bike. Are there any bicycles with odometers? I would really want to know how many kilometers I do in the first month. A speedometer is an added bonus. A phone charger looks like an indispensable add-on. And the most important of all, a good and secured locking system. At some point of time in the near future, if I still find myself into this bicycling stuff, I might be interested in buying a Go Pro for my trips, and a few safety gears for those rough terrain tracks. Looks like I need to do some research on all this.

I want peace

I want peace. I want inner peace. Complete silence. I shouldn’t be able to hear even a pin drop. I want my ears go temporarily deaf.
I want some silence. No sounds at all. For a few minutes at least!!!
When I concentrate hard enough on something, even a mosquito flying by my ears irritate me. And that’s exactly the time when someone is at the door hitting the bell frantically. And everybody else in the house is busy. And then the phone starts yelling.
This is a conspiracy. And it happens all the tune with me. Grrrrr
Silence. I need absolute silence. Not even the sound of my own breathing, for a few hours at-least….
