Bangalore Volvo - YI


You all might be knowing that few Volvo Buses are in the bangalore-BMTC fleet.
You might know that is comfortable to travel when compared to the travel in the normal, crowded BMTC bus.
But, Do you know that BMTC also provides a "where is it?" service for those volvo buses. Since there are quite a few volvo buses in the fleet, "where is it?" service helps you to take a decision whether you can wait for the volvo bus or you need to find out the alternative as you missed the bus.

Ok, Now, let me tell you the usage of that service. If you have an airtel service, this is free of charge, other providers charges I think.

You need to send a SMS as mentioned below.

To: 9945634666

YI U/D
YI - Yelli Ithe - This is a sentence in Kannada, which is the language of karnataka, India.
Meaning - Where is it?
U - Upwards(From Majestic), D - Downwards(To Majestic).
Example: YI V335E U

Volvo Bus Route Details

Hope this helps you to travel better in Bnagalore :)
Atleast you can listen to good music even if the Bangalore traffic is standstill.

Priority

She has her own priority
He has his own priority
You have your own priority,
So, I do have my own priority.

Kids priority is to play rather than study.
When they move on to high school,
Somebody's priority slowly changes towards studies,
Somebody's priority changes towards love, and
Somebody's priority changes towards life,
Whoever it may be, Priority doesn't remain constant,
Priority keeps changing to one or the other.

After the schooling,
somebody's focus changes towards the passion of life,
Somebody's focus changes towards the work,
But, still, Still, still...
Someone's focus is on studies, and
Someone's focus is on love.

After few years or When they move out of college,
Somebody's priority becomes the family,
Somebody's priority becomes the work,
Somebody's priority becomes the travel,
Somebody's priority becomes the money.
Whoever it may be, Priority doesn't remain constant,
Priority keeps changing to one or the other.

(Note: Priority varies from one person to another,
Priority changes from one phase of life to another.)

How to Stay Young :)

Received a mail from one of my friend. The content was good, so I have posted it as a blog entry.

1. Cherish your health
If it is good, preserve it.
If it is unstable, improve it.
If it is beyond what you can improve, get help.

2. Keep only cheerful friends
The grouches pull you down.

(Keep this in mind if you are one of those grouches!)

3. Keep learning
Learn more about the computer, crafts, gardening, whatever.
Never let the brain get idle.
"An idle mind is the devil's workshop."
And the devil's name is Alzheimer's!

4. Enjoy the simple things

5. Laugh often, long and loud. Laugh until you gasp for breath
And if you have a friend who makes you laugh, spend lots and lots of time with him or her!

6. The tears happen
Endure, grieve, and move on.
The only person who is with us our entire life, is ourself.
LIVE while you are alive.

7. Surround yourself with what you love
Whether it's family, pets, keepsakes, music, plants, hobbies, whatever.
Your home is your refuge.

8. Throw out nonessential numbers
This includes age, weight, and height.

Let the doctors worry about them.. That is why you pay them.

9. Don't take guilt trips
Take a trip to the mall, even to a foreign country, but NOT to where the guilt is


10. Tell the people that you love them, at every opportunity

LIFE IS BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!!

Bangalore <-> Ooty on Bike


One of my colleague, Elango, floated his interest to make a bike trip from Bangalore to Ooty. That looked interesting to me, and I have never drove such a long drive on bike, although I had drove almost 25,000 KMs... We are planning to go for this trip on the first weekend of the next year (2008).

I got some time to check about the trip on the net, and found some interesting blog entries...
Let me share the links here.

A Blog entry about their trip…. You must read this one before you make up your mind for such a trip. Are you brave enough?.. really???, tell me after reading this blog entry...
