Independence Day

On Aug 15th, I was wathcing a TV program. Some one was singing a so called Patriotic song.. One of the lines says:

"Bharatiye ninna janma dinadandu ninage namisuvevu ..." something of that sort... Meaning we bow to you on your "birth day"

I was actually astonished to listent to this line... How can Aug 15ht be celebrated as Bharat's Birth day ?? Its disgrace for all of us. We have not understood the meaning of our independence day but everyone takes the day off and enjoy their life... I felt really bad..

How can anybody determine Birthday of Bharat ? Its there since the time of Rishis and Munis .. we have got the proof also.. Alas our so called poets dont know this simple matter.

Weekend Trip - GRS Fantasy Park

On Tuesday, Father In Law told that they want to goto Mantralaya but they can't go this time as no one is there to look after the house and tuffy. Sowmya and I had asked them to go ahead and leave all house responsibility to us. On that promise they tried to get a train, bus or what ever the transportation to possible Mantralaya on whole Wednesday and Thursday. Till Thursday evening nothing was finalised and they had almost dropped their plans. That made us to go ahead with our trip plans.

It was a long weekend. Wanted to go out somewhere, desperately. We all (jukka, roopakka, shilpa, sowmya) started planning on Thursday evening. After half an hour of discussion and telephonic calls, it was almost decided that we go to Ooty and Black Thunder water park for 2 days. At the n th moment I got a call from my Father in law saying that they got the tickets to Mantralaya and requested us (Sow and me) to stay home to take care house and the their dog, tuffy. Tussssssssssssss.... our plans got dropped for that moment ..

Atleast we wanted to go out for a day. Every one was ok with that and we decided to goto GRS Fantassy Park, Mysore. I booked
Tempo Traveller (TT). Our whole family went for that. Amma, Sowmya, myself, Roopakka, Bhava, Shilpa, Yashu, Jukka, Bhava, Gowri and Bhargav. We were 11 in total. Our trip started at around 6:30. Sowmya and I had come from my in-law's house. We were little late. More over we had to prepare tomato-onion gojju (kind of curry ). Jukka and Amma had prepared, Chapathis, Puliyogare and Curd Rice. TT came to roopakka's house in Wilson Garden at 6. They were all ready and came to our place which is around 7 KM at around 6:20. We joined the troupe at 6:30 and started.

We took a break at Maddur to eat Maddur Vade and also had break fast there itself. The place we went to buy maddur vade was crowded like hell. Ussshappa...

Allinda .. we went to a Sai Baba Ashram on the banks of river Kaveri, on the main road itself. It was amazingly calm appealing .. Here are some snaps ..

kuy kuy naayi mari ...

It was around 3AM yesterday night. A small puppy started screaming ... Kuy kuy kuy .. waw waw waw .. We got up as it was disturning too much.. Sowmya likes pets a lot. She kept on asking me to go and check whats the problem.. I was reluctant for some time.. When it was intolerable I had to go in search of this puppy. I searched here n there. Opened the main door and searched near the gate, in the 'mori' ( road side pit) and everywhere. The kuy kuy sound seemed to be coming from very near place. I could not locate it. Then I thougt it might be in in neighbours compund. Peeped there also. Not successful. Then I observed one thing that the direction of the sound was differing left and right. Then I supposed that puppy might be in the terrace. Walked up in search of it. There I found it. It was very happy to see someone. I held my legs very tightly. It was lovely. I liked it. I carried it to Sowmya, to see her blissed face. She was excited to see it. It had stopped screaming. But I realized that it was hugry like hell. We poured a glass of milk and it drank the whole of it at once. We left it outside the compound and it ran away happily..

We slept in peace for the rest of the night .. :-)

Sad photos of Sharada Peeth in Pak occupied Kashmir

pictures have been uploaded by setlurbadri these
pictures in his yahoo folder, just click the link and
transport yourself to the era where Samskrit ruled
Pravarapurva (the current day Srinagar) and when the
entire culture was destroyed by the suvar ke bachche.
Peace,Tranquility, Creativity and Knowledge deserted
Kashmir with the destruction of this revered seat of
knowledge by the stupid sultan.
