    International Day

    November 2, 2017 in India

    Jedes Jahr findet am IIT der International Day statt. Dieser Tag wird von den internationalen Studenten für die indischen ausgerichtet, um die jeweiligen Kulturen/Sitten/Bräuche näherzubringen. Der Tag gliedert sich in zwei Teile. Im ersten Teil werden landestypische Gerichte gekocht und den indischen Studenten serviert. Im zweiten Teil finden Aufführungen (Modenschau, Gesang, Tanz und Poesie) statt. Es dürfte wenig überraschend sein, dass Ali und ich uns gerne und ausschließlich am ersten Teil aktiv beteiligt haben. Gemeinsam mit der Unterstützung einiger Kommilitonen haben wir Linsen mit Spätzle gekocht. Trotz einiger Startschwierigkeiten (fehlende Zutaten, andere Teigkonsistenz, zu wenig funktionierende Herdplatten etc.) haben wir letztendlich ein schmackhaftes Gericht gezaubert, das innerhalb von 40 Minuten verteilt war. Und auch wir haben natürlich kräftig bei den anderen Gruppen probiert: Spaghetti, Gnocci, Quesadilla, Ratatouille, Crepes, Kartoffelsuppe, Kürbissuppe, Sauerkraut, chinesisches Grünzeug (der Name ist mir leider entfallen) und vieles mehr - für jeden Geschmack war etwas dabei. Auch die anschließenden Aufführungen waren mit viel Spaß verbunden und ich habe endlich meine erste Hennabemahlung erhalten. Rundum ein super Tag!Read more

    The Etta

    May 3, 2015 in India

    ETTA @ Chikmagalur. This place has all the potential to impress the visitors provided the visit happens at the right time with right amount of Stamina. Highest peak, Wilderness, beautiful waterfalls and what not ? this place has got a right mix of tourists spots and travellers spots. So did this ETTA @ Chikmagalur happen with the perfect ingredients ? NO. We didn't get the 'Right Time' right. The time I visited this place, all I could remember is the Heat. At the foot hills or on a peak, couldn't feel the chillness that I felt when seeing the chikmagalur pictures in google search. That is what I meant a visit at right Time and April May is not the right time. And why do we need Right amount of Stamina ? Most of the beautiful places are not straight below your Car Door Sill. Either a rough terrain drive in a High GC vehicle and / or a long trek up and down the mountains is required to witness the hidden beauty of this place. If both the right time and right stamina comes together, with a proper planning, a visit to this place will ensure a long lasting memories. Just a zeal to explore the places wasn't enough. An Important and basic lesson learnt: before looking for a Stay, get to know about the weather pattern of the place.

    But all above doesn't mean, this ETTA was dry and full of displeasure. The Rain God had some mercy on us. I intentionally had to start this with a negative note; to bring the expectation level of the readers in to my hand, believing the previous ETTA Story has set a higher benchmark for this story. Similar to the previous ETTA, this ETTA too is comprised of same chapters except the uncertainty replaced by resumption and a detuned adventures chapter. Let me list them down. Resumption, Excitement, FUN, Misspend, Adventure and Yearning.

    The ETTAquipments

    May 3, 2015 in India

    The new addition to the The ETTAquipments...

    The B-Grip Camera Belt Holder. So happy to have purchased this, it helped me a lot to carry the camera while climbing the rocks, while crossing the pond infront of the waterfall, while driving the car, while carrying Kavin and what not. The Camera always stayed on my hip and I was able to carryout many other activities. Such a valuable addition to the ETTAquipmentsRead more

    A Day Well MisSpent

    May 3, 2015 in India

    "Why didn't it strike my thought that today is a long weekend and traffic is going to slow us down badly". Such a bad ride it was to the Mullayangiri peak mainly because of the senseless oncoming traffic. When I started driving car 17 Years back, it was a habit for all the drivers to give way for the up coming vehicles on ghat roads. I seldom see such a practice now-a-days. Now it has become a habit for the drivers going uphill to give way for the down hill vehicles. And it is infuriating, to see the down hill drivers' expression on their face when not given way for them. What the Hell ? If not given way, the down hill driver stops the Car and even bus, in the middle of the road and commands the uphill vehicle to reverse. Why the hell do we need Driving test and license for such a injudicious and thoughtless driving habits. And 75% of the drivers doing such senseless act are well educated and possibly IT guys, "eww". Our driver didn't look like he has done anything more than school but his driving was acceptably sensible. "Education ruins common sense".Read more

    The ETTAnniversary

    May 3, 2015 in India

    It has been precise 1 Year after the first ETTA. Whoa, First Anniversary !

    For those wondering what is ETTA please read through this link and come back https://findpenguins.com/theetta/94554658/munnar

    An 'ETTA', on the 'First Anniversary of the ETTA' is the best way to celebrate.

    Going back to the last year, it was Mohan & Divya's anniversary to which I allied the ETTA.

    This year it is ETTA, Mohan's Anniversary and FiiG. Wait ! What is FiiG ?
    FiiG denotes "Families Together" ( F stands for Families, (ii) Stands for 2/to and G stands for Gether). FiiG is nothing but a family get-together of my college friends.

    I think this is more than enough for an introduction. Let me ignite the Etta Story
