My Holiday April 2010

Mysore

First we went to Mysore. We halted in Mysore to see my mother’s uncles. We stayed at their place. After a little while my mother and my mother’s uncle left to visit someone. My mother’s aunty, my sister and I stayed back at home. In the house my sister and my mother’s aunt played a game called Rummikub. When they were playing I was doing something on power point on the computer. Afterwards we had dinner.Then I watched little television. After that my father and I slept together. My mother and my sister slept by themselves in another room. The next day my whole family woke up at 05:00a.m. Then at 05:45 a.m we left and reached Puttur at 10:00 am. Puttur is near Mangalore.

Puttur

In Puttur my cousins were there. Three of my cousins came from U.S.A. And three other cousins came from Bangalore. One of my Bangalore cousin's mother has had a new baby, so I now have another cousin! We played many games in Puttur. We played Police and Robbers. We even played a game with a bow and arrow. We took a bow and arrow and aimed it on our car window. After a little while we played video games on the television. In Puttur there is a big ground. On that ground every year in April they set up rides during the temple festival. There were many different rides. We went on three rides. They are:
The ferris wheel, break dance and another one whose name I cannot remember.

Here is a picture of some family members who went together to the ground:




We were staying in our grand uncle's house. They have a dog who is very old so he did not play with us at all. Here is a picture of the dog:



Mangalore

Day 1

In Mangalore I played with my cousins who were from my mother’s side. We played games like Carrom,Uno and I spy. After that we had lunch. For lunch there was pulau, raitha and red rice. After that my mother and father slept. My cousin sister and I played cricket.

Day 2

We all woke up at 7:00 am. I brushed my teeth and had my milk. After that my sister, my father and I washed our car. This is the third time that I am cleaning my car. When we went to Kotekar once before I cleaned it. Here is a picture that show us cleaning the car:


I love to clean our car. It is a lot of fun. My father says that I can clean the car better than our car-cleaner!!! After cleaning the car we had our breakfast. For breakfast there was red-rice and pickle. Then I had my bath. After that my parents and my sister had bath. In the morning I played a lot. After that in the evening we went to visit some more people. Next morning we left to meet someone in Kundapur and then went to Manipal (city not hospital).

Manipal
Day 1
We reached Manipal at 5:30 p.m. We were really tired so we had an early dinner and slept.

Day 2
We all woke up at 7:00 a.m. We quickly had our bath and our breakfast. After that my family and I left to Malpe to take a boat to St. Mary's island! In Malpe we saw many boats waiting to go fishing. We asked a man, "how many days do you go fishing?" The man said that some small boats go for 5 days some go for 10-15 days. After that we went to take a boat to St. Mary's Island. We went and asked what time the boat would leave. They said that the boat would leave only when there were 30 passengers!! At that time only 2 passengers had come!! The boatman told us that the boat would leave around 10:30 a.m. It was only 9:30 a.m!! So we went to the beach nearby. At 10:00 a.m we came back. Only 16 passengers were there. Even at 10.30a.m there were only 16 passengers. So we went home. In the house I read some books till lunch time. After lunch I again read. I finished 3 Junie B. Jones books, and 1 Magic Tree House book. In the evening we went to the beach. On the beach I mostly played in the sand because the sea was very rough. My father bought a kite. Then I wanted to fly it. But suddenly the thread broke off the kite flew away. But we were really lucky because the thread got stuck on some dry shrub! So we got it back but when I was taking it back, it slipped from my hand and flew away again! But then my father caught it. After that my sister and I flew it till it was time to go home. In the house we had bath. After that we had our dinner and slept.

Day 3
My family and I woke up at 8:00 am. We had our breakfast. After that we cleaned the car. After that I had my bath. Then I started to read the Magic Tree House. I read a little and watched television. Then I had my breakfast. I read some books. Then it was lunch time. I ate my food. After that I read a little and played on the computer. We slept early. The next day we woke up and left to Puttur. In Puttur there was a naming ceremony for my baby cousin. After the naming ceremony my 2 Bangalore cousins, their mother and my grand-aunt came in our car to Bangalore. At 05:00 p.m we had a coffee break. We reached Bangalore at 10:00 p.m. We went to our cousins house at 10:45 p.m. In their house we had pizza for dinner. Then we dropped my grand-aunt in their house. Then we came to our house. My family slept immediately. That was "THE END" of my HOLIDAY....

  1. You seem to have had a lot of fun during this holiday. I am very sure that no one in your family would have been able to tell me, this clearly, their day-to-day activities of the past few days.

Visiting the Kasturinagar (KA-03) RTO - a tumultuous but manageable experience to get a Learner's/ Driver's License without an agent/ driving school

Ask anyone, and I can guarantee that they will have a story (and in most cases, many stories) about their trip, or rather, numerous trips to the RTO for something as simple as getting a Learner's License (LL) or a Driver's License (DL). In this blog, I hope to make your life a tad bit easier by guiding you through the entire process, which may seem easy at first but is full of (overcome able) challenges if you know what you are doing. I turned 18 in January this year, and besides cutting a cake, I worked on my LL application online. I challenged myself to complete the entire LL to DL process by myself and without the help of an agent or a driving school, unlike what the majority do. The lengthy application process and multiple visits to the RTO, impressed upon me why most people decided to pay a little extra to get an agent to do it for them. Still, I was determined not to pay a single rupee more than the official cost. I succeeded.  Do note that this answer is concerning the K

Kicking off a 'political career' in an idea-based, grassroots level political party

Despite having been following politics for the longest time, and now studying it full time, I never joined a political party. When people used to ask me "who do you support?", my answer was standard, "no one". Luckily for me, ever since turning 18 and being eligible to vote, there hasn't been an election in which I'd be forced to cast my vote and tell people that I have made a definitive choice about a particular political party. At a time when politics has become ever so polarising and dirty, I couldn't be happier to associate myself with the BNP. It was in February 2020 that I was introduced to the Bengaluru NavaNiramana Party. I found their vision, leadership and ideas incredibly refreshing. Though I was aware of their launch/ kickoff meeting that took place in Freedom Park in early 2020, due to a friend's TEDx talk taking place simultaneously, I could not attend. Then, between Board Exams and the lockdown that took us all by surprise, I forgot ab

Yulu Miracle - app based electric scooters

Those of you who live in Bangalore, especially in places such as Indiranagar, Koramangala and Whitefield may have noticed different looking and noiseless blue scooters whizzing past you as you are stuck in traffic. These new scooters that can be hired through a mobile app called Yulu are used by all age groups. Currently, a majority of people (including me) use it for joyrides rather than optimizing their travel. For those of you who still have no idea, refer to the picture above! These electric scooters that are provided by Yulu are known as 'Miracles' and can be hired per 10 minutes through their app that can be downloaded on the Play Store as well as the App Store . Having clocked at least 15 hours on these exciting new scooters in the past few weeks, I have many stories to tell.   Although there is more awareness about these scooters today, as close as three weeks ago, barely anyone had any idea about it. Riding these scooters were fun and the closest I coul

How the Indira Canteen is a Failure and a Success

Source Indira Canteen is a fast food joint that has been touted as CM Siddaramaiah 's pet project in the city of Bengaluru, Karnataka. The canteen aims to serve 500 people per meal per day. Rahul Gandhi inaugurated this populist scheme of the Congress led Karnataka Government on Independence Day 2017. This was done in run up to the Karnataka Assembly Elections that is taking place five days from today. All 197 wards have their own Indira Canteen, built at a cost of approximately INR 30 lakhs each {1} . The setting up of this canteen is obviously to reduce hunger among the poor. Indira Canteen serves food at heavily subsidized rates by the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike. Breakfast can be availed at Rs. 5 and lunch at Rs. 10. The entire scheme has been well thought of and according to reports has been running smoothly {2} . The canteens are still operational (this is itself a major win for the Government), food is being cooked at remote locations by companies to whom thi

A Visit To Chitradurga

Chitradurga Fort is located in the city of Chitradurga in Karnataka .  It is about 200 km from Bangalore and 200 km from Hubli too. It is accessible from most cities and small towns by buses and trains. You can also come here by car. Its website is  http://www.chitradurga.nic.in/ At Chitradurga Fort Entrance Clouds Kissing The Hill In Chitradurga there are many points of interest. Its main point of interest is called the Chitradurga Fort. The  fort was built in the 17 th century by the chieftain of the area which was under the Vijaynagar Empire . Further into the fort the sights are breathtaking. I could see clouds kissing the hillocks. The fort was a city in the olden day. It’s surrounded by a 32 km moat which cannot be seen everywhere today. An interesting fact about this fort is that a lot of importance is given to it, though it was just built by a local chieftain. The fort is mostly made of stone so it is advisable to go early in the morning before the scor

The Young Adults Series at the Bangalore International Centre

 November 2020 With France reimposing lockdown restrictions, closing universities, and restricting people's movement to just 1 hour per day, I decided to fly back to India. My rationale was simple; rather than attending online classes in a foreign city, with no roommates, no extra-curricular activities during which I would have usually interacted with people, and it being illegal to meet anyone you are not living with, it made more sense to return to a safer environment in which I could enjoy more freedom, as Bangalore was in a pretty good state, at least compared to France.  While waiting to board my flight at Charles de Gaulle Airport, I was mindlessly scrolling through Instagram and came across a post published by the Bangalore International Centre . Clickbait-ly titled  'MUN Ki Baat'  (for those who don't get the reference: PM Modi has a monthly radio show called 'Man Ki Baat'), it piqued my curiosity, and I found myself watching a recording of it. When I in

FUD! - RBI's Decision Sends Worldwide Crypto Markets into a Tizzy - What is the actual scenario like?

India's central bank, the Reserve Bank of India on 5th April, 2018 announced that all regulated entities such as banks will not be allowed to deal with cryptocurrencies (Virtual Currencies as they call them). Banks have been told to wind up all transactions with cryptocurrency exchanges within three months. Within minutes of this announcement, Bitcoin slumped 27%. Global markets attributed the fall in price to RBI's decision as India has a pretty large cryptocurrency investor market. However, RBI's decision is outdated and virtually has no effect on investors and exchanges. Source A few months ago, couple of banks like HDFC bank had voluntarily  withdrawn from dealing with cryptocurrency exchanges. I know this as a fact as when I started investing, I initially tried to deposit money on a cryptocurrency exchange using HDFC bank as I generally used their services, but due to them pulling out, I was forced to look at other options. This was around September, 2017. Duri
