Riding like a rowdy makes me feel alive….
Relived the Torque of my 500 CC black beast…
Zoomed past the other bikes in secs… They got lost in my rear mirrors in a glimpse…
Relived the rowdy in me…
Feels alive again…
P.S. – dear traffic police, I know this is not right, but c’mon I am sure you guys also feel like doing this sometimes.

#beingronit, #notsosweet, #nss, not so sweet
Just read this online. I just could not stop myself posting this on my blog. Well it read-
“Middle age is when a narrow waist and a narrow mind begin to exchange places.” -Author unknown.
My apologies to the middle-aged folks.
And all you young readers out there, don’t be too happy and giggle about this as you will also reach there.
Happy new year!

9 years and counting… I am talking about my love affair with Mumbai. Her beauty still manages to captivate me every day. Through my blog
I wish to show you our Mumbai.
Mumbai, formerly known as Bombay, is the capital city of the Indian state of Maharashtra. It is the most populous city in India, and the fourth most populous city in the world, with a total metropolitan area population of approximately 20.5 million.
Map of Mumbai
Earlier Tourists use to enter Mumbai through the Gateway of India, located in Colaba (South Mumbai).
Gateway of India
I often visit the gateway early in the morning during the weekends, it’s beautiful.
The Arabian Sea
Just opposite to the Gateway, The Taj Mahal Palace and Tower stands tall to welcome the tourists with their best services.

The Majestic Mackichan Hall
I think the title of this post says it all. This post is about my 9 years’ stay in this hostel situated at Girgaum Chowpatty facing the Arabian Sea. The building is majestic and classic, made out of carved stone not bricks. I emphasize, so that you can imagine the beauty of the building, and the pride in the hearts of the hostel residents including me.
To give you all a little perspective let me share some photo captures of this architecture and its character.
The Middle Lobby in Mackichan Hall
So why am I writing a post about my hostel? It’s because I will be spending my last night in this hostel today. . Sitting here today I can already feel the nostalgia I will feel from tomorrow onwards. This nostalgia is about the wonderful moments I have spent here with my amazing friends. My hostel friends have turn by turn moved out of this place. Now I guess it’s my turn too.
While I am inside this hostel I always feel they are with me… though they are in different parts of the country. This place holds us together even today. This home away from home has provided us shelter when we had newly come to Mumbai… leaving the warmth of our house to make our lives successful. . This living organism has made us who we are today. Mackichan Hall has given us ample opportunities to be able to groom ourselves to face the world. Thank You is not enough to show our gratitude. I hope life gives me an opportunity to pay you back someday, so that you stand strong and help many more students like me chase their dreams.
It’s time to say good bye my old friend, my confidante. Your walls have listened to me when I was alone. I leave you not alone but with many more friends who need your support to step on the stairs to success.

Watched a Cricket match from the stands of a stadium for the first time in my life, just a few hours ago. It’s a different experience to be part of the spirit of the game just yards away from the battleground.
Mumbai Indians were playing one of their toughest opponents Chennai Super kings.
Mumbai Indians Fans were screaming their lungs out to cheer their favourite players. I was shocked to the see the support for Malinga, which was more than that was there for Sachin, the home boy. MI flags were being waved with energy and joy.
MI fans left the ground with heads high and arms around CSK fans. This is cricket. This is the spirit of the game or for that any game, to bring people together to celebrate wins together.
I truly had an incredible experience.
