SKY HIGH!!!!!!!!

April 26, 2009

It was one of my best day in my life..I have to blog this because the day had a lot of surprises for me.

It was on 21st April 2009. The day before thanks to The Hindu I saw an article on Adventure Sports to be held in Maharaja’s College Ground. I called them and came to know that this was free for all the youth and orgainzed by the Kerala Youth Welfare Board .

I along with KP , Sreekumar ( Kp’ s mate ) registered for Hot Air Balloon, Paragliding respectively.

I reached Maharaja’s College first . KP came along with Sreekumar in Sreekumar’s Bike. It was raining.. I thought the rain God’s are going to disappoint us. But the weather slowly cleared.

They blew the Hot Air balloon using their instruments which I saw for the first time with my naked eyes. KP went to have tea. He bought me Parippu Vada. It was good.We registered for the event . KP was interested in Paragagliding but I wanted to sea Kochi from the heights so I chose HAB.

It was our turn, Sreekumar and I got on the basket, the guy took us slowly in to the sky, I made history ..I travelled in air.  The Hot air balloon was tied though ,so that it doesn’t exceed limits .

It was an awesome experience to see the City from an Bird’s View Angle. I could see KP as a small dot .

As soon as we reached down we were excited to here that we have certificates for the same and to be handed by Minister for Youth and sports Sri Vijay Kumar..I didn’t get the chance but was worth it.

We got chance to be on TV.. But I missed the chance to speak to Asianet’s Anchor .  Ribi came at around 10 am . She wanted to be in Air but it was already finsihed. Then she registered for Zorbing.

It was fun.She went inside the ball,  I and KP outside pushing the ball in the rain. She said Stop Stop ..We stopped ..She came out some how. We were heading towards exit but some one caught our sight in the rain.

Thanks to Ribi. The one was  RJ from SFM Radio. We got the chance to be go LIVE on AIR because he saw just one from Girls side doing Zorbing . Our voice was heard by all those tuned into SFM including my Mom and sister.

Ribi told she will give us treat as her firm promised to give her salary..We went there to collect the salary but disappointly she didn’t get.. All this time I was receiving msg from Nandini, (My VP AIESEC) ..She messaged that they wanted to say something important.

I went to Romana’s place ( My LCP)..They asked me can I be Vice President for DT ( Two VP’s ). I was shell shocked. I said , ” I will give you the confirmation in 24hrs .”  But that didn’t happen. I was appointed as VP for AIESEC Kochi there itself. Oh I can’t belive I am on the Excecutive Board of one the largest student run orgainzation.

My first Vote!!!!

April 16, 2009


I voted for the first time and that too for the LokSabha Elections and as a teenager for the largest democratic Country in World!!! I am very happy to be part of the making of India’s next five years. Which I consider as the crucial years for making India from developing to Developed Country.

Now the Ball is in the court of the one’s who wins the elections.We have given you the power ,as spider man ‘s Uncle said,” With Power comes Responsibility.”

I am waiting for May 16.I hope the one wins whom I voted..(Very Greedy 😉

Those who did not vote. Go and Vote guys.Every single Vote counts !!!!!!! If you can’t vote this time round make sure you vote next time. But don’t complain about poor  infrastructure , bad education system etc ,etc ,  ..You don’t have Voice !!!!!

(Thanks Anand for my Vote photo!!!)

Smart City [Kochi] :- A Boon or A Curse???

April 11, 2009

The project, if my memory is right was a result of  former Kerala CM  AK Antony’s  Global Investors Meet (GIM)..I remember those 7 day..We got holiday’s for that..Since then the project was hung in some papers and controversies  and a year ago the Project was finally signed by the LDF government..It gave hope to all the people in Kerala and others resided abroad..But even today after the stone laying ceremony nothing has begun!!!

The sad part is the people were relocated to a new place in order to start the construction of Smart City..But even after a year and half the project hasn’t even moved a centimeter. I hope it begins as soon as possible or else it will surely turn out a curse for Kerala..

It promises a lot of employment opportunities..I hope the eyes of the authorities concerned opens and the Project stats ASAP.

I think there should be a clause added by some law,which should state..”If the construction of a project do not begin in six months after signing of the contract the land should in this case be given back to the real owners.”

A Political Dilemma!!!!APriL 16

April 9, 2009

On April 16 ..It’s history for me..For the first time in my life I am gonna vote..And I am proud for that..But the candidates in my place is what causing me a dilemma..Whom to vote..Is my biggest trouble..If I choose one..My another problem is ..Why Vote him/her…I will have to sort it out in a couple of days.Hopefully I have to choose only one from two..Others even if they may have qualifications they are not going to win..Which apparently everyone in India knows 🙂 Joy or Thomas..One is young another an Old professor .This is gonna take sometime to decide!!!!!!
