Its the 66th year of India being freed from the British Rule on this August 15th, 2013. So what do Indians actually do on this day, being a holiday?
A few patriot’s, will wake up early, join at a government place or a school or so for the flag hoisting ceremony, sing the National Anthem, and then just continue with their daily routine lives.
There a few others, who join along to do something different, they go out of their daily normal schedule, join the less privileged people at Ashram’s or Health Cares or may Hospital’s, or even road’s and celebrate Independence Day with them.
While there are the other major part of the few, who wake up late, go out for a outing, do some shopping, eat out, sleep for the whole day or go for a movie, and ask them whats Independence Day and all they would say is, its a
Holiday and a Dry Day where liquor is not sold 😉
Yes you heard me right when I share some offer’s like this, I am not kidding. This Holiday season its all about discounts everywhere. RedBus the number one bus travel booking portal of India, is all proud to offer 15% off on all tickets booked before August 15th, 2013.
For those who are still wondering which are the holidays coming up,
Ramzan Eid – August 9, Fri
Independence day – August 15, Thur
Raksha Bandhan – August 21, Wed
Krishna Janmashtami – August 28, Wed
Been a very very long time posting a real blog! Must be a month long, and this all happens coz of the workload, the functions at home! Also spent a good time celebrating Christmas and New Year with my folks! A little vacation from all my usual routine kept me away from Blogging too! Just never realized its 2012 now! 🙂
I thought before starting to blog something new in this year, let me take a pause, on all that happened in the year 2011! The Good things and the not so good things! Most were good 🙂
Have you heard of Random Access Version 1.0 waging a war against the Good One? If not that maybe, game characters coming alive into real world, to finish the fight you left in the game? If not then dont worry, you have just not watched Ra One, the Indian sci-fi super hero film of 2011 is all set to take you into the world of imagination, gaming sandwiched with real-life scenarios, keeping your jaws dropped with all the actions and animations!
Ra One, movie by Anubhav Sinha, produced by Gauri Khan, is a movie on how a Tamilian Game Developer, develops a game as per the request of his son, where the villain is stronger than the hero and never gets killed, who wants to be a bad dude. The game turns out to continue programing and developing on itself, that it starts using different technology to come into real world, just to finish the game, the Game developer’s son had started. But not to worry, we have the savior Super Hero G-one (also in Hindi Jeevan means Life) the good one who comes to save the boy and the family from Ra One, (in Hindi as Raavan meaning the monster from Ramayana).
The Title only portrays the grandeur of the transport I took for travel from Ernakulam (Cochin) to Goa on Thiruvananthapuram-Nizamuddin Rajdhani Express. It was a last moment decision of mine to go in this train, but though the feared cost of this journey by all, I would say it was worth it.
I boarded the train around 10:30pm, in 3AC boogie, to be welcomed by a suited, well dressed waiter welcoming me on-board. I get to my seat, where the compartment is sparkling clean, with clean interior, unlike other trains surrounded by rusted body. Since it was past dinner time, I didn’t get anything special other than a chilled mineral water bottle, and ironed, fresh smelling bed-sheets.
Have you experienced this feeling, when you really want to be there for something, and you have all the obstacles coming front of you, until the last minute and it feels nearly impossible to be there in any ways, I went through one recently.
I know I have not spoken much about CFCI Singles, and youth, which I have planned for soon, and will do soon, but as I was telling, there was CFCI Singles National Conference to be held in Mangalore, in my hometown, and Singles from all over India would be coming, and it was my community conference, my brothers and sisters coming to meet all together once in a year, and I was so eager to go for it, and was planning from a year long, even before I got a job and got sent here to Cochin.
A place called Athirapally, in Kerala.
A nice and wonderful experience
It is a place of waterfalls,
Running, from a height of 80 feet.
It is located in the forest area,
Combined with the greenery
It retains freshness into any tired soul,
The falls join Chalakkudy River ..
