The year that was...

Keeping in line with the tradition of this blog, I proudly present the year 2010 in a recap here...

This year was releatively a crawler compared to the past few years. A majority of my journeys this year were by my new car, and successfully ran over 24,000 kms over this year. Railfanning took a backseat as usual, while Busfanning came forward (only to be sent back again).

Have a fun filled run on the Punalur-Shencottah line this year, and was fortunate enough to be present on the last day of service as well.

Had two fun-filled trips from college, with my classmates - One to Chennai and Vellore, Second to Sringeri, and Manipal. Although both were aimed at attended conferences, we had a blast at both places. Such trips help a lot in improving the bond between students.

Got two pets - a dog and a cat! The doggie is now just about a year old, while the cat (pussy) is just about a month-and-a-half old now. Robin (my doggie) had a long journey to Bangalore (his hometown) and back in my car in April, while my Paru (my cat) is all set for a ride tomorrow to Alappuzha! I now enjoy being a "pet owner". Paru bites hard - never knew Cats bite so hard!

Had quite some long bus journeys on KSRTC buses this year - now I know why many people do not prefer KSRTC for long journeys! This included on overnight trip as well - it was terrible!

Got a new camera this year, and had been experimenting a lot with it - no show-worthy pics though. Although a crawler, the year did rock! Perhaps a turning point in my life, as well. I hope to have a rocking year again...

The famous American author and journalist, Hal Borland, famously said: "Year's end is neither an end nor a beginning but a going on, with all the wisdom that experience can instill in us."

Wishing everyone a very prosperous and fun-filled year ahead!
Happy New Year 2011!!!
 With lots of wishes that all your wishes come true in life... but, remember that better things in life happen only with hardwork.

My India! My Pride!

Chalo, glad to hear that you had a great year inspite of not updating the blog often. Conferences and trips indeed help in breaking the ice. Happy New Year to you too!! Looking forward for more regular updates along with railfanning photographs.
