Neatly spread out kasol base camp @kullu, HP

After a sleepy exciting early morning journey for almost 2 hours we reached Kasol. The cold was pleasant and journey was filled with some magnificent view of snow clad mountains. Base camp at Kasol, was spread over a vast land which hosted around 20 big tents that could hold 15 people each, a kitchen, dining area and a campfire gathering area. It also had 2 bathrooms with 24 hour supply of “chilling” cold water from river Parbati flowing just few meters away. All the first timers at YHAI were shockingly astonished by the view of tents, including me.

Yeto Vellipoindi Manasu

yeto-vellipoindi-manasu-posters-1Gautam Vasudev Menon… comes back after 3 years, with “Yeto Vellipoindi Manasu”… Though the story is nothing new, and has predictable turns at every point, he has not lost grip on the narration and the scenes. The plot is a typical Boy-Girl love story from school till marriage and their relationship issues. Gautam succeeded in showing the subtle emotions and confusions that arise at every stage of a relationship from both the perspectives of a boy and a girl. Naani as Varun and Samantha as Nithya adds freshness to the movie and has given their best performances. Samantha impresses with her natural acting, depicting emotions of all 3 stages of life, school, college and later. Great work with costumes, especially that of Nithya. (I fell for Samantha every time she appeared in different costume). Prabhu has done a decent job with his camera.

All it takes is a moment!!!

The sudden disturbance caused in surrounding by the fragrance and hurried movement woke him up. He was pissed off. The extra emotional drama at house the previous night has cost him his sleep. He had decided that he will take a nap as he dint want to look drowsy and thus spoil a chance of making a FIRST IMPRESSION with new hot college girls on the first day itself. He turned his head back to see who was the one wearing so much perfume that would wake him up from a sound sleep. He could see only the GREEN salwar, that too from back. He smiled as the view was pleasant. That was a “figure perfect”, according to him, from the back. He realised that all his irritations are gone and smiled at his stupidity. He couldn’t take his eyes off her for the immediate few moments, but later confessed to himself that he was waiting to catch a glimpse of the face. She just slid into a long 3 seater and occupied the window seat. All he could see before he went back to his sleep was the streak of hair that was falling on the face, which he thought was lovely, though it was blocking a clear view of the assumed to be pretty face.

Keep walking

Life seems to be a long journey with many destinations and many stop overs. Sometimes it so happens that I start to enjoy the journey more than the destination. I start to like the movement and the disturbance that it causes. Even as a child, I used to enjoy all those rides in auto to home back in the evenings after a roam around in the city with parents. I also have a blur memory that many times I was excited to go out only thinking about the auto ride. May be that part of me has evolved into a more mature (eh.. kiddish is apt) sense that I continue to enjoy the ride of life now.


ಹಳೆ ನೆನಪುಗಳನ್ನೆಲ್ಲ ಅಳಿಸಿ ಹೊಸ ಮನ್ವಂತರಕ್ಕೆ ಕಾಲಿಡಬೇಕು. ಅಲ್ಲಿ ಬರಿ ಕನಸು, ಭರವಸೆ .. ನೋವಾಗಿ ಕಾಡುವ ನೆನಪನ್ನೆಲ್ಲ ಮತ್ತೆ ಬರಲಾರದಷ್ಟು ದೂರ ಬಿಸುಟು ಬರಿದಾಗಬೇಕು … ಅದರ ಹಂಗು ಮಾತ್ರವಲ್ಲ ಕಿಂಚಿತ್ತು ಪ್ರಭಾವವನ್ನು ಇಲ್ಲವಾಗಿಸಿಕೊಳ್ಳಬೇಕು ಅನ್ನುವ ತಪನೆ .. ಎಲ್ಲ ಬಿಟ್ಟು ನಾನು ಬರಿ ನಾನಾಗಿ ನಿನ್ನ ಮಡಿಲಿಗೆ ಬಂದು ಬೀಳುತ್ತಲಿದ್ದೇನೆ.. ಹರಸಿ ಮಡಿಲು ತುಂಬಿಕೊ, ಎತ್ತಿ ಎದೆಗೆ ಅಪ್ಪಿಕೋ .. ಮತ್ತೆ ಆ ನೋವಿನ ಹಳೆ ಹಂದರಕ್ಕೆ ಬೀಳದ ಹಾಗೆ ಗಟ್ಟಿಮಾಡಿಕೋ ಹೊಸ ಹಾಡೊಂದನ್ನ ಹಾಡೋಣ ಹೊಸ ಬಾಳೊಂದನ್ನ ಕಟ್ಟೋಣ ಅದರ…

A long weekend

Its been a while since I blogged. Being in the writing mood for 3 continuous days, thought why should not I also blog. So here it goes, the next instalment of Celebrations. Thanks to BharatBandh, my planned long weekend of 4 days is cut short to 3 days as I had to work on Saturday. Also TravelFreaks were really busy in their own commitments to utilise the 4day long weekend for a trip and I was locked in home. I spent it all by relishing the yummy home made food, gymming in the evening, watching TV and constantly refreshing the FB page. I cant think of a time I was so jobless for a recent past. Such times definitely demand some pleasant reading and believe me it did happen. The new OSHO book I am reading took me to complete different levels of thinking. Anyway I could not read it full as the depth of thoughts it was triggering was too much to handle and needed some time actually to process them. (Wiat for a post about that soon) So restricted my reading to a strict two hours in the early hours of morning. (as early as 9 😛 ).
