Travel Tripping

Wanderlust. Travel. Backpacking. Roaming….Exploration. Discovery. Fun. Cameraderie. Learning. Endurance. Ever since I acquired a 4×4, it has been a life beyond imagination. In addition to being and extension of myself, the  ownership included long distance trips, off-roading, hair-raising drives, solo-expeditions, rally participations, recoveries and oodles of fun. The add-on results ranged from envy to sarcasm…

Slowing Down – An invaluable requisite for Speeding up again!

Here I was, speeding along the ORR at about 120kmph or more. Six lanes of pure driving pleasure whether you choose to cruise or race (if that is permitted). Reaching 160 kmph speeds or more is a walk in the park. Considering the grueling 1400 km drive in a single day after another 350 km,…

Solitude or loneliness?

4 decades. Acquaintances. Friends. Closies. Enemies. Colleagues. Relatives. Phone list with nearly 1000 contacts. Negligible social footprint. Life in the Field. Threat to life. Sworn to serve Motherland. Wanderlust. Drive-crazy. The question still remains: Is it Solitude or Loneliness? Inability to settle upon either is bizarre. Being exceptional (in a way) at work, does have…

Flying Solo

Moon. Lunar. Lunacy! Its nuts how one can think. Etymology for sure. Never thought flying solo can land you in cherished company. Example? Shhhh…. you are reading one. Company that truly wishes well…trusts completely… Its a dream come true! All along, it was the sheer intent to enjoy the silence of solitude, away from the maddening…

Soulmated!

Along comes someone…who you never expected…makes you realise there is more to life than just the mere mundane existence…helps you along your lonely traversal of duties… Seems more like folklore than reality that materialised even without dreaming about! How much more plain lucky can you be! Don’t be jealous people, because I have been super-lucky…
