A Visit To Hundred Hands

On 24 of November my class went to hundred hands, a place where you can buy handmade things. There were 2 groups who went. One group did hand painting, the other group made something with clay. I was in the second group, so I could do anything with clay. I made an auto-rickshaw. My auto-rickshaw had wheels that I had taken, a head light, two seats and a roof. We got half an hour to do all this. We had a lot of fun there.

Micro Light

What we did On the 6th of November 2011 my family friends and my family went on a Micro Light plane ride. The plane was a two seater. All of us got a chance to ride on it. When we were in the air we were allowed to steer the plane. Then we could align the plane to the runway. When my mother went in the plane the pilot decided to scare us by flying over our heads and our car!! When the oldest one in our group went there was so much wind that the plane went in another direction! It was a nice and wonderful. About the plane  The plane is manufactured in Bangalore. Only the engine is imported from Australia. The plane weighs about 200 kgs without people inside. The plane can carry on 200 kgs of additional weight. We took off at 65- 75 kms/h. When we were in the air we were at a speed of 80- 90 kms/h. The plane flew at 600 feet. It can go only up to 1000 feet. About Jakkur Airfield (Where we took off).

Hi everyone. This post is to inform you that I have another website where I upload photos and some news.

Watch Factory

My father and I went to a watch strap making factory. The owner is my father's friend and so it was easy for us to visit the factory. We met him first at his leather strap making factory. You may think making a strap is very easy but there are many processes to make one. The owner showed us how they first take leather pieces, then give it shape. There are no machines to do the shaping so it has to be done by hand. So I thought it was very tough job. In the 2nd  factory we saw how they did metal straps. They get these small small pieces and then join it together by hand. Then they wash it once and make it look clean and shiny. If required depending on the order they gold plate the strap. In the third factory we saw more people making metal straps. We also saw how they do gold plating. First they heat the straps in a big oven at 180 degrees Celsius. Then the man said something complicated that I could not understand. The man also showed us some Diyas that he has to sell to Tanis

IPod touch

My father recently bought our family an IPod touch. You can play music download games and apps. This IPod does not have the feature of calling with a sim card. You can call other people who have iPods or IPhones with face-time chat or any other free chat like skype etc. The IPod has been working well all this time. I hope it continues working like this. Since this blog is about the iPod I have written it and posted it using the IPod.

Nandi Hills 25th September 2011

On 25th September my cousin's family and my family went to Nandi Hills for trekking. I did not expect it to be so easy to climb. There were steps that you could climb on. We started climbing at 8.00a.m. On the way every 15 to 20 minutes we took a break. There were tall trees almost all the way till the top so we got good shade while climbing. We took 1 hour and 40 minutes to climb up. We ate sandwiches, biscuits and chips along the way and at the top of the hill. There were monkeys on the top so we had to be careful while eating. We had got some rope, my uncle and father held both the ends of the rope and were acting like they were lashing the monkeys to scare them away.   After we finished we met another family at the top, who were also supposed to climb with us but were a bit late to start. We stopped and talked with them for a while in a restaraunt then all of us climbed down together. While we were on the way back, we found a tree where we threw our rope over a branch and mad

Wizard 101

Wizard101 is a free game you can play. Wizard101 is created by the company KingsIsle. In Wizard101 you have quests to accomplish. In some quests you have to fight monsters. By fighting monsters you sometimes get things like pet snacks, robes to wear, hats to wear etc. In Wizard101 you have 2 types of spell cards, they are- Treasure cards and Trained cards. Once you use a treasure card you loose it. The advantage of using a treasure card is that it gives more damage on the monster you are trying to kill. Trained cards give less damage but you have them forever. You also have spell decks in which you have to keep your spells in. There are different spell decks. By default your wizard will have the starter's deck. After you pass levels you can buy different decks. I am right now in level 10 and I have 3 Decks, they are- Starter's Deck Pinewood Deck Novice's Life Deck The Starter's Deck can store only 12 cards. The Pinewood Deck can store 16 cards.

After 28 Years

Finally India has won its second ICC World Cup title after a long gap of 28 years. India defeated Sri Lanka in the finals by 6 wickets. India had exactly 12 balls (2 overs) and had to make 4 runs.I was very happy and I could not believe India won the ICC World Cup. India won in 1983 when the team was captained by Kapil Dev. This year the team was captained by M.S Dhoni.  Here is the picture of the trophy:

I love doing things on the computer. I love playing games, surfing the net etc. I also like programming.
