    Thanks monk :-)

    ----consecutive posts auto-merged-----

    No one realizes how beautiful it is to travel until he comes home and rests his head on his old, familiar pillow. -- Lin Yutang

    With this famous quote, will start with my munnar update

    “Life” What is life? Whether life is all about love and experiences, or is similar to that of a sheep. This is the common statement put out from a biker before bike trip. In School days, loading tons of books in bag and waiting for three wheeler to pick up on a Friday evening was bliss.
    And In college days, family and society compensated for the burden of books. Hailed from middle class, stuck between responsibilities and dreams, i ended up to become yet another software engineer in a constant compromise of my aspirations only to live as a sheep tamed by the shepherd, Oh Christ!
    In past three years, my growth in career and personal life was average. Only to add up to my miseries lost a person in my life who mattered the most and the rest left me to survive in the middle of a desert. Being a single member in family, 360 degree of loneliness always surrounded.


    My friends were antidotes to my misery and one special guy, who always stand for me from childhood and had been my mom, friend, relative and took part in all my ups and downs in my life. Not sure, how many of you have seen a Super Man in real, but i see my Dad every day. Tangled in cuffs of destiny, terrific battle rolls in my mind. Everyone have their own therapy to come out from this inside battle, some still searching for it and I found it in two wheels. A resurrection from dark and death, lit by marvelous head lamp, i cruise to heaven lands with a roar... Yes…! "Four Wheeler moves the body… Two wheeler moves the soul." This blog is about my bike experiences to munnar and my therapy to come out from stress.


    DIARY OF WRRROOOOMING SOULS


    A great thing happens in small accident. Like newton found the gravity force, creation of fire. But some say accidents are not meant to be accidents. Those are the path for next steps. The whole plan started up with unplanned conversation…! Vicky who stopped at my desk for asking project related details. As the conversation goes we ended up with bike trip. Wrote down the plan in desk and waited for the day to come…! .

    Munnar Plan


    Before the trip in traditional way we float flyer for all fellow bikers within the organization for count. Sadly everyone reply was negative, but one mailer came with a threat Saying “Will kill you guys”. First we tot, it was wrongly addressed… then it was one of fellow biker - vinoth. Who has his marriage on the last day of trip? Changed the plan and make sure we are present for his marriage. Bikers united …!
    The next challenge is to get permission from my dad. I know he won’t allow me for long distance. But what do …! Need to pack up my safety gears without my dad knowledge is very hard. I commute every day to office using office bus. 5 days before the trip I started to take my gears in bag and store it office luggage room or in my runner. Slowly, like an ant store food before the winter, I started up with knee pad, elbow pad, bungee nets and rope. But fox armor was big and doesn’t suite in my bag. My luck, dad left early morning to office. Now everything is ready and waiting for day to come….!

    DAY 1: Ride after Sunset:


    Started to place the tarmac from office (SIPCOT IT PARK) @ 6 30 PM…! Reached Chengalpattu around 7:20 PM. It was an awesome start, since the traffic was less. After a long stretch in trichy high way, Mother of laziness called us around 1:00 AM. Being glued, our eyes for more than 6 hours to the monitor; we felt a ton of weight added in our eyes. Vicky was leading the road, so asked him to stop for chai. In a Greeny environment, we had chaiya with illaiyaraja music.

    Started again for narrow road trip, it was freezing out in cold and just managing my seat position to make myself comfortable. Vicky was leading the road again, I felt tired and droving @ 70 km/hr. All of sudden from nowhere a strange car Zumm closely. It was a big wake up call and lost my stability for second. This made my devil to take over my mind. Like an iron man wearing his suite to fly off, I Leaned my head on the tank, moved my body position to race mode. What else … let’s roll. Flicked my gear from 4th to 5th . Odometer needle already reached 11RPM. Now Vicky was following me. For an instance we both (me and car) maintain the same speed @ 125Km/hr. It’s time to show the differences between rider and driver. Feather click to 6th gear and opened full throttle and feel the rush. Vroom….mmm! (Yamaha racing musicJ).Bye…eee! driver. The sky color started changing to royal blue and able to see black orange smudge after a while. Yes, it was day light. Around 6 30 reached theni, by that time golden ball started to rise. Normal Day started up for those people living in there. A day in the mountains! It could be as joyous as thinking of it is. After a _ss soaring ride, I envisioned the day ahead in mountain road. While passing by, golden ball was rising in between the mountains in cold mist; it was astonishing view, were the rays of the sun scattered into mist. To reach munnar, we were off-roading in mountains. As the road was in pathetic condition and we found it difficult to take the corners. Finally reached room, slept till evening.

    DAY 2:Making Comfortable in Munnar

    Brain Alarm woke me up @ 6:00 AM. Took my cam and tripod to take some nice sunrise shot. But surprised when I came outside, not even a single person was in vicinity, since it was too cold and fully covered with mist. Just imagine the environment with long exposure and bright tube light!.Started to move on and making myself comfortable to that environment. After reaching the peak point, imagine a place where the grass and plant covered with sun-dew with greenly exposed white light. It was a wonderful morning in bird’s paradise. Took some snaps and reached room. Vicky was half way from his sleep.

    RajaMaalai National Park.

    Started from room @ 9 15 AM (Had breakfast and refreshed ourselves for the beautiful biking) and reached Rajamaalai National Park @ 11. Sadly bikes are not allowed, only government vans. We waited for more than 30 minutes to board a VAN. Around 11 : 40 AM, we reached Rajamaalai national park peak. In Mountain road corner we discovered quote boards more than sign boards and the whole setup looks like heaven, with earth and sky kissing each other. Whenever the clouds pass by, we were able to feel the cold breeze….!. This flashed my childhood days. After returning from school, I used to open the fridge and keep my head for a while J (ha…! this feel is awesome in summer season). After few steps of walk, a bike crossed us. When we inquired about that with nearby guards, they replied that only higher officers are allowed to take vehicles (Staring at people passing by in their privileged vehicles and local jeeps … Mind Murmured: Seems democracy for few lucky people in India).
