Pi Patel and Maheesha

I am currently thumbing through a book called "The Life of Pi" by Yann Martel. A very interesting and thought provoking book that combines wit, humor and plot with common sense and intricate observations in the right proportions. After a long time, i feel i have read through a book that not only gives a nice plot (like Dan Brown's DaVinci) but also makes me think about my own self (Like FountainHead). 212 more pages to go..................

And yes, Pi is not 3.14, but the name of the young lad in this book and Maheesha is that of a Bengal Tiger.. :-)

Snow Boarding

Over this weekend, i just realised that snow boarding offered more fun for me than skiing...

As they say,
snow boarding is difficult to learn, easy to master...
skiing is easy to learn, difficult to master...

Finally my own website!!!!

Yes! it is true! :-)

I finally bought a domain all for myself. I wanted to register the names,

I am trying to make my site more like a portal with multiple applications and utilities and hey, if you want an email address like "yourname" with 2Gb free space,virus protection and other accessories, just email me. if i know you, you will get one ;-)

Thanks for visiting this site...i shall post more later about the new portal.

Catskills and Snow Shoeing

We were camping in snow this time(Catskills mountain ranges in Upstate NY)....and snow shoeing across cross country ski trails to get to the camping point....a few pictures below:

Thats the Vehicle (Chrysler Pacifica - i did not find anything really great about this vehicle) and thats the gear (now that was some gear!) :-) We were dressed in so many layers that we were actually sweating in the snow!

Now, thats me....all dressed up and ready to hit the trail.

The below picture is what makes it worth all the effort! ....the view from inside our tent put up on the top of a mountain....farfar away from human inhabitation.....we could hear the snow falling softly.....

Never wanted to get back to normalcy! Never wanted to leave the place....

Those were my feelings when i was flying out of vegas. I was so pleased with the quality of the night time pictures we took. A few samples of the pictures are below...
