Am I in a parallel universe flying free?
Is that a sound of a rain or a soothing song?
It brings back the bliss that stays for long,
I got soaked in the shower of blessings from skies
I wondered and opened my eyes…
It’s raining outside and I’m sleeping inside.
It’s 3.50 am, Saturday morning. I got up 10 minutes before the alarm sounds.
I had enough time to get ready. So I thought of downloading some GPS turn by turn apps from windows market place to my phone which might be helpful during the travel.
I got ready at 6 am to start my journey with my friends Amarnath and Rajiv who will be waiting for me at Guindy. We reached TADA falls check post by 10.30 am and it took 30 more minutes to reach the parking area.
The monkeys and the steel bridge were welcoming us and we are now ready for the trekking which we have been longing for
We walked on a muddy, bumpy path which did not seem much hard and then had to cross two small streams towards mountains. The water is crystal clear. We also found broken glasses and plastics thrown everywhere by drunkards.
Here comes the actual trekking. Rocks standing tall in front of us
A few clicks on the way…
We reached an interesting place where we played for a while. There is small water fall at the end of this pond. The water gets deeper when you move on. You can not reach there if you are not good at swimming.
We then moved on from here to see the actual water falls. It was a very tough trekking.
At last we reached this water falls. It’s not a big one, but worth coming here.
It’s 4.30 pm and raining. So we started getting down since it wouldn’t be safe when its gets darker.
I had to climb down from this rock. Risky , Mission Impossible
Took a snap on the way down (Mango , Fish pool) which is very near to the parking area.
Way back home.
Walking on the bumpy road , Climbing the slippery rocks , Swimming in the purest water…It was a good trip indeed !!
Today morning I got a call from my friend saying ‘Steve Jobs died’. I immediately got up from my bed and switched on my PC to check the news and this is what I saw in Apple.com.
It’s really sad news for me and for those who were inspired and touched by his Innovation and Creativity.
My hearty condolences to his family,friends and the employees of Apple.
I would like to post the speech he gave in 2005 at Stanford University.
“Remembering that I’ll be dead soon is the most important tool I’ve ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything—all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure—these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.
Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma—which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice.”
Miss You Steve Jobs.
