Another scintillating day…

This weekend – again due to some unavoidable trip, I landed to see in and around of Mysore. I am posting few snaps here….

Came to know that there was no lighting in the Brindavan for the past one week ( as told by my taxi driver) . It was totally ignominy to see such display there. When the clock went down to 7pm, it was too dark and we could not even locate our car. Added to the scene, there were school kids following one by one. If one gets missed …. it would be very difficult to locate since, there was a heavy rush. There was no information any where abt this failure except at the ticket counter, where it was written in a small paper with sketch – “Due to power failure there will be no illumination in the south end gardens”.

The first one…

Beautiful sunset in the Cauvery Basin, Brindavan garden.

iPod sends electric signal to ur body....;-)

Sorry for again writing abt iPod. Just wondered how it is designed & found some thing interesting.

Do u know that the click wheel wont work if you use any plastic material to move around the wheel ( use cap of a pen to test this) ? U c it sends electric signals from the base and for the click wheel to work, the object it touches should be a conductor.We are good conductor and hence our finger does the magic.

But why when a paper click is used it doesn’t work? Good question isn’t it. The area of touch also does matter. The more the area of touch more electric cloud ( they call it as capacitance ) is created under the wheel which is sensed by electric circuit.

More details about that here.

To new version...

Today I moved to the beta version of the blog and hence the google gadget has gone. Last week my trip was to Greenwich - which i will be adding potos soon.

Comments on iPod Nano:

I moved to a new 2 GB iPod Nano - completely remastered. It is really good. The sound quality is superb - similar to the old iPod shuffle. I really liked the click wheel which responds when we slide our finger over it.

They have also increased the battery duration to 24 hrs from 15 hrs which was there for old iPod Nano.

Features i like in it:

  • Sleek design

  • Sturdy body

  • Nice Game

  • Click Wheel

  • 2 Gb in £99

  • Good sound

  • Calendar and Clock features

  • Contact features

  • Features I dislike

  • Ear phone jack at the bottom right

  • Change in earphone design - that doesnt fit in ears

  • Overall Satisfaction : Nice to buy

    More details about iPod Nano here

    On the FN...

    (Replace H with Husband and W with wife...;-))

    H eagerly anticipates his new W arrival on the first night.
    Here are the few dialogues that went in after that….

    H says: Before we proceed our life, I wish we could share our feelings, likeliness, interest etc. This will make us comfortable, understandable and help us to understand each other in a better way
    W says: mmm ( in a silent node)
    H Says: let me talk about my love life. I wish you should know some. At least I want to speak here.
    H says: I happened to love few people. Nothing worked out. My first one….I got attracted by a girl when I was doing 10th std.
    W says: (suddenly raises her eye brows )
    H says: Don’t see me like that. Let me complete. I did not speak even a single word during my studies there. One last word we shared – that is before our final examination – All the best.
    W says: (now with little comfort) that’s it…
    H says: Yep. That’s it. I could not see the girl after that. The next one when I was doing my graduation. This girl was my colleague. She was very beautiful and I wished to spend time with her. But I never confessed my love to her.
    W says: Does she know now or not?
    H says: No. I later found that she was not the one which I was looking for. I completed my studies. She knew me as a colleague but not more.
    (The conversation goes as this for other 15 mins and H finally finishes his love story...)

    H says: So, those where my 1942 love stories. How about you. Did you love some body? Any success in that.
    W says: Not but during the recent days I do.
    H says: Don’t worry. I won’t take it bad. Is that true?
    W says: Yes. I still love him.
    H says: (with little annoyed but not shown in face): That sounds interesting. What happened to him?
    W says: He got married.
    H says: Oh I am sorry (little relieved now) What is he doing now?
    W says: Wasting the wonderful first night telling the untold stories to his new wife. Ada chi vaaa.
    H says: Adingooo….

    On the British Museum...
    As I had mentioned in my earlier post about my trip to British Museum. Here are few excerpts.

    I took 2 tubes to reach British Museum from my place Hounslow. It is one of the world’s largest museums. It is a good one to spend a whole day. There are 3 floors and maps are available to easily locate a place where we are and what is nearby.

    I tried seeing almost all the rooms in the museum and I hope I have covered all of it. The one that fascinated me the most was the Egyptian section which I longed to see. I could see more people in that session and I saw the famous mummies.

    Next one which I admired was the very big reading room. A huge collection of books orderly arranged --- too huge. They do have some small outlets and restaurants for small breaks, if at all we require.

    Asian section – Other section where I could see more people. Collections of various shapes of Buddha were found everywhere. India has got a much enriched history, since in the Asian section; India is finding a memorable place in the British Museum. I tried to see the famous peacock throne (the throne of ShahJahan) but I could not. I read somewhere that this was taken by British from India when they ruled.

    The first poto shows here the reading room.

    Second one – Outside the reading room.. the cafetaria

    The third room, - idol of Durga devi and my favourite – at the Japan Section – the jar was very beautiful and the surrounding was very clean that lured to me to shot.

    Last one – Outside the British Museum –

    When I am coming out I found this building which looked really good. Waited for some time so that I could shoot it with no people in the scope. I don’t know how anything about this building but the photo has really come well. Taken with normal light with no flash.

    Yet another proof...

    I am not a good photographer but now I am learning a little in that. This started, when I first saw this poto which I took during my bro's marriage. The energy in the eyes of the girl has really come well. Taken with flash in 3M using my Sony camera.

    And the second one, I took when I went to Brindavan. Different shades of people waiting to see the dancing water fountain.

    In my room...

    Last week i tried taking snaps of my room in UK. Using auto snap feature, I tried few snaps. They came on really well. I clicked one on my room light, which I posted here. How is it....

    I had been to British Museum last Sunday. Good one to spend a day. Will be writing abt it soon.

    My parents (father, brother and sister in law) came and hence onceagain to Mysore trip. This time, I made it to SriRangapatna and Brindavan which i missed when i went on a trip last time.

    The trip was good and I enjoyed it. I just wanted to post few potos which I thought would be relevant here to show my potographic skils ( athellam onnum illingoooooooo).

    The first one .. i clicked in Brindavan . just a different view of a tree.
    Second one.... In Tipu Sultan's summer fort.

    We were at the project party (account level) last wednesday. The DJ was good. It started at 7.30pm and went till 10.30 pm.

    Nice to cherish. Too far from Mysore, scheduled somewhere in SriRangapatna in a resort named YOUNG WORLD ( hope I remember correctly).

    i will be soon moving with a new SONY ERICSSON PDA cum MOBILE PHONE ( model no P110I).

    Soon to tell some good news related to my leisure activity.

    For time being, njoy this snap which I took when I had been to UK.

    Poto Side

    Few of the snaps my fnd sent to me in email. And the paintings are really cute.

    Let them be caught in my blog for sometime ....

    Roaming around Mysore

    Few weeks before I had been to Mysore Zoo. Man, that is too big. It took some 4 hrs to come back to the starting spot.
    Felt almost tired. The animals kepts us enthusiastic. Good to know that they have named the tigers in beautiful traditional south Indian names.

    Few snaps posted here. Splendid place for kids to visit .

    We just followed these people too for keeping us move without tired ;-)

    My trip to London...

    Hi pals, i am writing after a long hibernation. I had a chance to go to London officially. Here it is - sharing some of my views abt this place.

    Weather is really good and the time when i went it dropped even less than 2C. I felt very cold after coming out of flight. Thought for a while that the foot path was airconditioned - but to my anxiety that was the outer temperature.

    People do follow the traffic rules and almost eveything is automised. To say the truth, it is easy to settle in this place than in India in any state. I got bus pass, mobile SIM everything activated the same minute. I was able to travel with the same bus pass in tube trains as well. Commuting is the best there and people move with us in amicable way. A snap which I have taken there....

    Seems so silly...

    Happened to read my old mails in the archive today. i thought of deleting some unwanted mails which were there for quite some time increasing the size. As i proceeded, i cud c some silly mails which I sent to a friend. i was in crush with her that i totally gone mad.

    I felt that i did a realy foolishness after reading such mails now. I cudnt move beyond that I deleted those mails outright. Thank God. I saved my image.
