Reminded of trains (Protected entry unfortunately) I wanna go for a train journey too.. To someplace cool for a vacation.
I love trains. They have such a rustic and Indian feel to them. I love train journeys but for the time they take. But it’s a fair trade off I think.
I think the dj in Purple Haze, Koramangala rocks.
He played one band after another from my favorites list without knowing of it obviously ;)
Sample – Megadeth, Iron Maiden, Audioslave, Metallica, Ratm, RHCP (in no particular order)
I’d go there just for the music.. (though I’m slightly high right now.. Shhhh ;) )
Apps for MBA schools are starting to come out now!
The new round begins for me. I did not apply last year, deferring to gain more work experience. I hope I have sufficient experience this time now.. I am feeling the beginnings of a freak-out :(
Sometimes some of my close friends have asked if I am committed to the friendship or that what they mean to me. I always feel awkward in such situations because I feel that they’ll feel I’m saying how I feel out of force or without meaning it and instead saying just to answer their question.
On the other side, sometimes when I feel like saying how important someone is to me, I don’t ask my friends of stuff they don’t tell me and so don’t want to be taken wrongly if they are going around with someone. Or I don’t want to be interpreted as trying to say something else.
Because of this, i have stopped myself from talking after starting, deleted completely typed emails and erased such txt msgs.
Oh why so many complications and why do i think so much..
Alrighty.. So I bungee jumped yesterday. But more from the start. We left around 12 and it took us about an hour to find the place. The crowd was fairly thin considering it being the last day and a Sunday. The ticket purchase required us to undergo a medical test – BP check and weight. All that took us about an hour and a half. Then came the long wait for our turn to jump.
Eventually it turned out we would wait for about 7.5, yes seven and a half hours.
But it was not all waste. We had lunch and then waiting for some more time went for a long ride, which considering the improving weather was fabulous. Near the Yellahanka airbase Vikram’s bike ran out of fuel. So we stopped there and to our pleasure discovered a small pond. That and the setting sun made for a great combo. Took lots of pics there.
Chandrahasa about to dive in to the lake.. Taking his acting career too seriously ;)
One of the best pics of the day..
By then we hoped that our turn would have come but nope, we still had to wait for a lot more time.By now we were beginning to lose patience but since we had paid, we could not do anything. Finally at about 8:30 our turn came and we strapped on for the jump. After that it was just thrill as we waited for our turns.
When my chance finally came, i rode up the platform relatively calmly. But once on top, i felt the fear, thrill and rush of jumping the first time.
The crane from which we jumped..
Encouraged by the instructor, i took a deep breath and stepped off. I wanted to jump head first but the platform was swaying too much for me to jump (ah well next time ;) )
Anyway, once i stepped off, the ground rushing up towards me gave me the kick of my life.
It WAS one of the best experiences of my life.
To those in our group who did not jump, I’m sorry for you. You missed an experience to remember.
Now i wanna jump from higher up :D
More pics on my Zooomr Album
Sorry but the videos are too large to upload.
Jumped off a platform about 120 feet high with nothing but an elastic rope tied to my ankles. Yeah, I “bungee jumped” today. And it was one hell of an experience. I’m still feeling the rush of the jump. Went with Chandrahasa, Kiran, Madhavi, Madhu, Mythreyi, Swetha, Satish and Vikram.
Everyone MUST do this once. It is an experience to remember :)
More details, pics and videos tomorrow. It’s late :(
Edit: Just noticed the current title of my blog and it takes on an entirely new meaning ;)
Edit 2: Corrected Mythreyi’s spelling :)
