I am standing at Tawarekere, Oracle Junction, a meeting point of four roads in different angles and distances, so its kinda weird junction, waiting for my cab. Beautiful morning, spoiled by the smoke of every vehicle passing by. All passerby’s busy to get to their destination for work. Some on phone’s, some on their iPod’s. Traffic moving smoothly, in the Bangalore standards, everything is just normal of an everyday person in this locality.

Explore India on Three Wheels

Now what do you have in mind when you read the title? Every Indian without doubt knows what a three-wheeler is? Have traveled at-least once in life, and the experience was worth sharing.
From the north to the south, east to west, there wouldn’t be a state where there is not three wheeler. And what do we call it? Yes its the Auto rickshaw. In some place we have cycle rickshaw, Tonga Gaddi (Horse Cart) so on to replace the auto rickshaw.

Now for daily commuters to work, school or to go for shopping, traveling in a auto rickshaw wouldn’t be a new thing. But exploring places, going trekking or going to the beach, through the jungles and also the plains, palaces, temples, churches and mosques, wouldn’t that be something new and adventurous? And when you are driving it yourself to the place, I know you got your adrenaline rushing right as you read it.

Are you a Mangalorean? Have you lived in Mangalore for more than 10-15yrs? If yes for both, then if I ask you the best of the roads, parks, cafe’s, hotel’s, snack counters in Mangalore would you be able to tell me? A real thought provoking stuff right?

After a period of 3 days voting by the listeners of the Radio, they have come out with the besties of Mangalore, and they are..

The 3 Hungry Men

The image and the title of the page doesn’t it relates so much that I am at loss of words when the word food comes in picture. Have you heard the saying “The path to Man’s heart is through his stomach”, if not, then these three will surely prove it right and agree with me.

It all started just by meeting together and eating out, they started feeling lets do something more than just eating, lets complement food, and that to in a unique manner, and thats when they started their own, “Mangalore’s Food Certifying and Food Critic Body”.

Small Conversation

He opened his case and took out the laptop, determined to put the time to some good use.

“Are you from the software industry sir,”

the man beside him was staring appreciatively at the laptop. Vivek glanced briefly and mumbled in affirmation, handling the laptop now with exaggerated care and importance as if it were an expensive car.

“You people have brought so much advancement to the country, Sir. Today everything is getting computerized. “

“Thanks,”

smiled Vivek, turning around to give the man a look. He always found it difficult to resist appreciation. The man was young and stockily built like a sportsman. He looked simple and strangely out of place in that little lap of luxury like a small town boy in a prep school. He probably was a railway sportsman making the most of his free traveling pass.
