Doorway to my Holiday - Day 1

Travel means different things to different people. For some it is an adrenaline rush while for some it is just a break from routine. It makes people happy, ecstatic or just keeps some entertained. And I have been looking forward to know what it is to me for quite a long time.

Basically, I love to travel (oh now let's not mention about the aching body after my road trip). Since I didn't get much chance to explore places, I have been nagging my people to plan a trip for so long. Even a weekend getaway would give me that pleasure. For some reason or the other, family trip seems to be a distant dream for us. It’s always difficult to bring my brothers and cousins together and arrange for the trip. One day it all fell in place. The doorway to my holiday finally opened and offered me an excellent travel experience. We started our fun road trip to Wayanad from Bangalore.

Wayanad, here we come!

Day 1

It was an exciting 6 hour fun on the road where we enjoyed the scenic beauty and awesome weather throughout the journey. In between we stopped for lunch and then again we drove continuously playing some great music.

My first time to Kerala. No wonder it is the God's Own Country. It is one such place where the nature spreads its joy everywhere.

Muthanga forest welcomed us as we entered our destination but we didn't stop there. Since we started off late, we decided to reach the resort before it gets dark. So no sightseeing at Wayanad on day 1. But that was totally fine as we spent that whole evening sitting in the terrace refreshing ourselves with delicious hot tea and mesmerized at the beautiful view of Chembra Peak.

We were very pleased with the reception and felt special and very welcoming at the resort. A good collection of books were greeting us in the reception hall and I am happy to meet Harry Potter after sometime. :P

Later we got busy with taking selfies and recording our memories. After the delicious dinner, we played dumb charade for an hour or so and then I smoked Shishah for the first time.

The day 1 of our trip was filled with awesome memories. Day 2 and 3 pictures are on their way. J

A Lonely Traveler

Drifting as a lonely nomad
Under the evening sun
She is all alone and stranded
Sailing up and down
Like a pearl in the oyster,
To the never ending music of waves...
Or is she a jelly fish idling in the water
With painful desire, she craves?
Hope and fear in her painted black eyes
'Oh, where is my man?'
Who left her behind to break the ice
Making her wait for someone.
Let the prince show up to give one true kiss
To guide her swim ashore
And make her life a real bliss -
Till then...
She is a lonely traveler,
Gently striding along the tides...!

Mosque in Taif

Two years back during our Umrah journey to Mecca, we went on a day trip to Taif, a hill station in Saudi Arabia. This historical mosque in Taif  - Masjid Abdullah Ibn Abbas(ral) have a library inside. Our time well spent looking at the display of ancient inscriptions, scriptures and one of the first few handwritten Holy Quran.

Beyond Boundaries ~ Dell with INKTalks 2014

Centuries ago, connecting with a person of common interest behind a different boundary was an impossible task. But as the time and technology evolves, now we can work with an artist in Rome to paint a portrait in Chennai with the technology of telecommunication.  Telecommunication has been successfully growing and connecting people beyond boundaries. It has also blurred the lines which used to separate people. From telephones to internet, from telegrams to video calls, technology’s evolution has been a journey filled with connecting people around the globe.

Nowadays, becoming an expert in any field is much more of a social process than it used to be. Being an expert is no longer about what we know so much, as understanding what questions to ask, who to ask, and applying knowledge contextually to the specific situation at hand. Instead, it has often been associated with teaching and mentoring. So today it's more concerned with learning than knowing.

Because of the development in technology, the nature of knowledge is changing, and that affects not only what we teach, but also how we teach.

Dell partners with INKTalks

The INKTalk 2014 conference is going to start from 31st October in Mumbai on the theme 'Beyond Boundaries'.

Dell always is a pioneer in technological advancement and creative ideas. Now Dell India partners with INKTalks for their 2014 conference in Mumbai. And it is no surprise, Dell come up with this amazing concept in association with INKTalks.

Dell has always been at the forefront of technological advancement and creative thinking, therefore it came to me as no surprise when they partnered with INKTalks for their 2014 Conference in Mumbai. The tie up with INKTalks is an addition to Dell’s inspiring ideas which emphasize the commitment with the younger generations.

I believe the INKTalks 2014 is going to be insightful, inspiring and entertaining. This conference is an annual celebration of thinkers and doers from diverse walks of life. World visionaries – CEOs, entrepreneurs, artists, technologists, scientists & more – gather under one roof for a cross-pollination of ideas and chance encounters for the next big breakthrough.

The INKTalks conference is known for its exciting ideas and maps out the future innovations through creative thinking. The conference encourages interdisciplinary collaboration where the opinions and ideas of scientists, artists, entrepreneurs and film makers, to name a few come together on equal footing.

With this partnership, Dell aims to engage students in a year long conversation with Dell and INKtalks to encourage a strong sense of social orientation and bring student communities together to share knowledge and ideas with peers and work on collaborative projects, all to prepare them for real life challenges.

Here’s a short video that’ll give you a taste of INK2014.

The Winter

The winter is coming..
Whispers in the cold breeze
Goodbyes from tender leaves.

From heavens unseen
Calmly floating in the air
Silver snowflakes.
