Band of merry men...

Once upon a time, long long ago, there were a band of merry men. They used to eat together, work together and in general have a good time. They were always there for each other…they solved each other’s problem..waited late for others…

The work was hectic..hours were long..the pay wasn’t good..but no one complained. Because the team spirit was there..people was united and the work was good..there was lots to learn..

As time passed, the work started getting to them, they didn’t get their just dues..and dissatisfaction creeped in..some of the merry men left for greener pastures..the group started getting smaller…

During this time, some changes happened..the merry men had to work with other people..they found it difficult to understand this style of working..there was no order..just chaos..the merry men never complained..they worked diligently..but somewhere inside, they weren’t happy..

I am one of these merry men…one from the band of Avalon…

Once Avalon, always Avalon..

Bike ride!

Hey people..m back..this time with my experiences on a bike :)

FYI..I am not much of a bike my opinion may be slightly(!) biased..But hey..its my blog! :)

Now the journey began from TechM office to R city mall with my trusted (have to!) friend Krishna..The first thing that hits you is that vehicles are a lot closer to you as compared to a car..In a car, you will go very close to touching the other car..but you are still a fair distance autos and cars are zooming past you threatening to take you with them!

It was a fairly ok ride..the road did us no favours by giving us a fairly bumpy journey..I don't know how people travel everyday without getting a sore ass and/or sore knees/ankles...Maybe its the curse of the pillion rider..

But the icing on the cake was when Krishna said, "I think the brakes are not working". Heck..what's life without a bit of excitement..turns out the front brake wasn't working..So he was managing to stop the bike with a complicated manoeuvre using foot power!

Well we did return safely in one piece but it wont be something I would want to repeat in a long time!!
