@sifar Ditch Nainital and head to Bhowali. Beautiful little town and also (apparently) the fruit capital of our country.

@keeperofthekeys Damn annoying! Fail to understand what these people have against capitalization, spellings and punctuation.

@GVRV His entire blog is worth reading. Less frequent these days but never disappointing.

Experienced first hand BSNL’s widespread routing (not DNS) issues on ADSL. Touching wood hoping it doesn’t effect my connection.

@rungtaakki Woah! Hope the upgrades trickle down to other coaches soon.

@Shalin10 Unable to use it on my iPhone (now there’s a problem not encountered by a simpler interface) so will try it out later from my Mac.

Forgot to account for power outages. There goes my plan to resume work.

“You never did learn to mind your surroundings” comes to mind.

Cab driver on a jam—err, blocked M.G.Road in Shillong: “यह हमेशा blocked रहता है. देखिये ना, बापू अभी तक इस पार ही खड़े हैं.”

@vegachauhan Well, it’s a good enough excuse to celebrate!

@keeperofthekeys In Cherrapunji. We trekked from the Cherrapunji resort to what’s known as the Umkar root bridge, or something like that.

9:44 AM Dec 28th 2010 in reply to keeperofthekeys

Superb chilling weather, annoying taxis, mountains, a dry Cherrapunji, over two thousand steps and a living root bridge. Shillong and back.

4:53 PM Dec 27th 2010

@rakeshrach To the mountains! Shillong and back.

Cousin talking about the concept, creation and execution of 16th December, a.k.a. Lollipop Day. A Loyola School tradition. Since 2010.

Not to mention the 10 different types of mithai I’ve had in the last 36 hours. #goodtobehome

Oh, and it’s kite flying season here. Woh kaataaaaaa!

Peeled a sugarcane with my teeth after what seems like an age. Ah it’s good to be home.

Another 4 AM transit at the longest platform in the world.

Stuck in my head: ‘Mysore Se Ayee’ by the awesome @Raghu_Dixit and his @trdp band.

8:32 PM Dec 18th 2010

@keeperofthekeys Not yet. Off home after a great week in and around Bangalore.

8:29 PM Dec 18th 2010 in reply to keeperofthekeys

Off again! Two nights one day journey in an R.A.C. seat will be a hard test though.

7:13 PM Dec 18th 2010

And now, it’s time for @Raghu_Dixit and his mates to end #fossdotin with a bang!

Scored: 7am breakfast at Mavalli Tiffin Rooms, who also happen to be the inventors of Rava Idlis (as @souvikdg informs).

Voice outside my head: “Wake up!”

Voice inside my head: “But the alien is just about to have a conversation with Dumbledore!”

@umadamle Haha! Now now, let’s not jump ahead and stereotype so quickly.

11:30 PM Dec 13th 2010 in reply to umadamle

@umadamle Mango Tree was our first stop. As of now, we can quite confidently claim to have sampled 90% of Hampi’s gastronomical offerings.

10:03 PM Dec 13th 2010 in reply to umadamle

Only in Hampi would you dismiss something off as “just another ~500 year old ruin by the side of the river or on the edge of the hill.”

8:54 PM Dec 13th 2010

Inside a hut.

10:31 PM Dec 12th 2010

Atop a hill, Hampi.

@rakeshrach I’ve been aboard twice now, and both resulted in happy memories.

3:49 PM Dec 9th 2010 in reply to rakeshrach

@keeperofthekeys In that case, I certainly hope that yours was non-exciting.

There are few things as uplifting and refreshing as a good train journey.

9:12 AM Dec 9th 2010

Hot, soft masala dosai aboard the Brindavan Express. Train food is oh-so-satisfying when done right.

8:45 AM Dec 9th 2010

@rungtaakki Let’s hope so! Enjoy your stay at Dubai.

5:38 AM Dec 9th 2010 in reply to rungtaakki

@amit_behera Yup. Off to Delhi in a month’s time.

@rungtaakki …and I thought you’d have been buried under snow by now. Have a nice trip!

HTML semantic conformance can get really frustrating at times. Spent an hour pouring over debates on , concluding it’s best ignored.

5:38 PM Dec 5th 2010

@rakeshrach Those hours are simply too lucrative to pass. Enjoying the luxury while it lasts.

@5anket Yes, back to being nocturnal. Not for long though.
