End of 2019 squared up with a sudden trip to Badami and Hampi in Karnataka state. Well both the places are approximately150KM apart from each other.
Rock nature is quite similar on scene it’s in abundance. I can’t guess how top business people of the world didn’t reach out there to utilise the material for construction purpose.
All ancient architecture, pillars, gateways, all this made of rocky materials from there itself. Summers wouldn’t be a good idea to visit it. Local said they see only two seasons- summer and low summer. There is no much of rain and winter. Place doesn’t have humidity so it’s ok to move on with it.
Ancient architecture is carved really skillfully looks like long generations were involved developing it. And after that most places seems to be destroyed too later. One would see temples in a row but deities missing! Others stuff like Elephant keep house, palace, meeting hall, bath place of a queen, lake, shops, temples are still seen as the were. And all these are made out of the Rocky material available right there. Stone chariot on 2017NEW ₹50 note looks eye pleasing.
4 Badami caves are carved in line. It’s the temples inside the cave. Stone fragrance inside the cave is unique one. Badami ancient temples are right infront of these caves distanced by a calm Agastya Lake.
Visiting this would level up one’s mind to ancient cultures, style and efforts.
In October this year our vessel Nord Mississippi was berthed in Newark US. We had an opportune moment to look around New York. It really astonished me to wander in Times square of New York. I had just heard of New York at that time and nothing about Times square, empire state building etc. Well now that I’m being trapped in Social media world didn’t waste any time to upload my pics from Times square.
Then in no time people stared reacting on my uploads. Not just my close friends. One guy even texted me ‘My dream’. It’s then that I realised the fame of New York, how people see the New York as. In fact the whole world wants to live in NY, but whole world is already existing there too. NY is quite expensive for non- NY’s and we being the Indian. Hollywood, world politics, TV series have highlighted US a lot and people are engrossed too much in that world wide. Don’t take a firm stand for US straight for the life. That will put up one in more complex situation. I made it to New York US and hadn’t longed for it ever. Now let’s see if destiny has designed more visits to NY😍.
Atlantic Ocean being the favourite and I had a hat-trick of crossing it in a row. Thanks to the cargo owner for arranging such voyage for Nord Mississippi.
Ocean is royal blue in appearance that’s what I like. The husky winds hah! Once I came out on deck. All normal sea ambience. Then I was asked to move ahead of accommodation. Well I didn’t mind to go there. The moment I stepped there. All my Senes got centralised. Such high speed husky winds struck my whole body. Air didn’t allow me to step on. I was excited to see such kind of stuff. It’s true water and air is clear then anything in the middle of ocean. Birds were also seen following the ship. Heard beautiful the Dolphins do follow the vessels but haven’t got to see any this time.
Staying in the sea away from home gives different feelings thoughts. We gotta start living peacefully wherever we are. And never forget we all are on earth. Born, lived and died at same place is not a contradictory but make that place as earth or the world.
It’s already named as IIT Goa yet hasn’t identified a campus worth it. Now surveying Sanguem the 3 rd region after rejection from locals on first 2 places.
So far campus identified in Sanguem hasn’t have a smooth beginning. Official haven’t identified the right place for the campus of IIT Goa.
Don’t know why would anyone go for paddy field to bring up a campus for institute. Regional farmers grows various crops throughout the year there. Shouldn’t even consider relocation of locals when vegetation and cultivation is concerned.
Most of the people in Goa have given up on farming. Hardly any people are in it so don’t take away from them.
The people of Sanguem have been waiting for such great project, so, the officials and management of IIT Goa please don’t commit any blunder in finding the best permanant campus in Sanguem. It is the best place for IIT Goa. Select a campus that wouldn’t destroy fields, cultivation, houses, forest, water bodies, history sites, etc.
Some deforestation will happen to come up with new infrastructure, but the IIT like institution are the ones that can increase the forest covered areas not just of campus but also surroundings and the whole region.
Lots of projects are being welcomed in South Goa who all depend on Selaulim Dam for water. Water scarcity will hit Goa for sure in near future, better find a way to maintain a higher water level of dam than the required always.
Anxious to see the sunrise for inauguration of IIT GOA campus in Sanguem earliest.
Today I came across very rare awkward situation at a cars service station.
I had taken our car for regular service and maintenance. It’s a day long working onto her. All work done nicely on car. Ready to leave the place for home.
Then atlast that strange thing happened when service person alotted to me inquired “Did you fill the feedback form, Sir?”. So I gone through it quickly entered 6 and 7 points in various entry out of 10.
Next service supervisor checked it to see the score. And he couldn’t believe it. Right away asked for explaination for such a low score of 6 and 7.
Then he brought into my notice his timely actions and proper care taken of the car throughout the day and also hospitality offered to me. I tried to calm him saying that couple of points are cut to give space and scope for improvement for company and yourself. And since target is not achieved it will give motivation for you.
Telling me that I deserve 8-9 points every where.
Although some entries were stated for service centres assessment.
Later I managed to write advice as updating technical knowledge. Then again he asked where do I lack in tech stuff. Immediately I asked where are the details of Oil and coolant. Guys, man replied Engine oil given by the company, that’s it.
Man later said I might need to come to your home to ask for such a low score if you don’t assess correctly.(our home is very very far from service centre 😅).
Atlast I took a step back and ended up giving 9 points to two entries and 8 points in all other. Yea he really worked hard through out. Deserve that score. The man seemed to be aged so definitely has family to look after. And pay for people working at ground level is relatively low in the state. So here such feedbacks score becomes very crucial for their performance, increment and promotion.
Also warned him to that he shouldn’t stop working as I gave him score of his choice. Hoping that you will still be motivated and hungry for work.
I am now worried whether my decision will support overall development or not. Because, next time Service needs to be more advanced, effective and environment friendly.
Now that this one concerns energy and I head straight to AC and fans simultaneous operation.
People do switch ON both AC and fan in a room. Even if the fan is right in front of AC port. That’s completely bad utilisation of resources. Fan rotation blocks the air from AC and which doesn’t cool the room uniformly. Then there’s complaint about poor cooling too. Very few aware of the modes horizontal and vertical movement of air in AC.
Scenario is more tragic in houses. Majority of people keep fan and AC in operation simultaneously. And the reason for same is too much cooling by AC so fan neutralizes it. Also they like the fans tune.🤔
People need to be aware of ongoing energy crisis. They got to have the knowledge about optimum energy utilisation.
Rich or poor it doesn’t matter. Electricity is generated at higher cost, and also day by day non renewable energy resources are depleting so there is need to conserve these energy resources.
Gymming has always been on my mind and considered good for me post 22. After making a unique plan for ongoing tasks, I finally joined Gym on 21st May. On the day 1 got dizzied, took couple of hours to get myself back to normal.
Shared the news with couple of friends and yea even they were ready to join me.
But a call from Mumbai scrapped everything about gym. Very next day left for Mumbai along with whole body pain, sleepless night, headache, damn… atlast trip to Mumbai had no outcome. Infact it weakened me. Returned home and had to regain the lost calories.
It’s was such a mystery to take away Gym by that trip which didn’t give any outcome.
Hoping to begin ith Gym now directly Onboard.
