Reporting from Mumbai
After another Delhi-Pune trip I came to Mumbai via the express-way. Last time I spent the journey sleeping, but this time inspite of having not slept for more than 32 hours I stayed awake to see the express-way. I have been on this express-way four times, First time was as an industrial tour from department we visited the under construction highway. The tunnels were being dug and cement shooting guns were being used to water proof the leaking rock structure of tunnels. We also saw some good construction machines from wirtzen, germany that could automatically pave the road if raw material is filled in its chambers. I was impressed..
Second trip was the most enjoyable of all. Bike trip from Mumbai to Pune, we could take the express-way only after khandala but driving on this road was fun. Third and fourth were one way trips from Pune to Mumbai in bus and car.
Karwar (near Goa, in Karnataka) road is by far the best road (most enjoyable) I have driven on.
Finally, I am in Mumbai and have been to IIT once. Played TT after a long time and best part was Murali was my partner again.. I miss the days when myself and Murali will stay on the carrom board for long hours inspite of warning system, because nobody could beat our partnership easily. Murali chalo kabhi carrom bhi khel ke dekhte hain.. 2 saal se jyada ho gaye carrom touch kiye.
I have to meet several people in mumbai, Dixit, Sir, wingies and xslmemps. Vivek I will get the coffee shack photograph !! no problems..
Went to Juhu Beach yesterday night, I couldn't take my camera :( since we went directly from office. Strolled on the sand for couple of hours with a laptop on my shoulder (they still make them so heavy) untill Aveek relieved me of the burden. I like to be at juhu ( for that matter any beach ). The sound of sea has a strange calming effect on me.
More on this theme later..
