Trek to kalsubai

Learning from prior experience and mismanagement and pain caused us in trek to HCgad , we started planning for this trek a week beforehand.
as all hard work paid, and our trek went well, Ashish pandey who was most enthu during planning and shopping for trek unluckily missed trek
as ranjan and pandey got into minor bike accident which left pandey injured badly.
As usual our plan didnt worked well from start, as we have decided to meet at shivajinagar at 6.30 am on saturday,

So as per plan we got into bus for sangamner and from sangamner we were planning to catch bus for bhandardara, we got into the bus and if any other direct bus for bhandardara is there, and found that there is bus for Rajur which is just 21 km from bhandardara so I ran back into the bus asked everyone to getout from the bus and directed them to Rajur bus which was empty.

So after bus took off, we reached rajur at arnd 12 pm and has light lunch and then took a Vadap (a term for local unauthorized travel where people travel sitting on the rooftop of bus) to bari, I thought that is the starting point for Ratangad, meanwhile we found that Heat was tough, grass was dried due to intense heat. we reached bari to know that bari is starting point for Kalsubai
as per our plan: we had planned for trek to Ratangarh + night stay at ratangarh + trek to kalsubai.
but as shendi which was base village for Ratangad was 20 km away from bari, so we dropped plan for ratangarh and instead decided that we will do kalsubai today and ratangarh tomorrow.

meanwhile as we were stuffed in jeep, I sat in wrong place, I couldnt get a air to breath, so I was feeling nausea, so when I got down, I could stop and I vomitted whatever I ate at Rajur. after that I had a tea and banana, I felt somewhat better. then we started for trek, got a small boy from village as a guide as we wanted to get down early so that we can start for ratanwadi same day in the evening. it was 2pm when we started walking, in first phase there were no trees, too much heat was there. All were soon got exhausted, and we were taking break every 10-15 minutes.
For me, it was more tough as after vomitting I didnt have anything in my stomach, I was feeling powerless, even I was feeling that I can not complete this trek, and was thinking that I will sit down and let others go up. but I fought against that feeling and continued ,we were drinking water at every halt, after sometime we remembered that we have glucon d with us so, after eating glucon d we felt better, we continued our journey. after sometime,
we shaddow of hill started, and that was much better for us. so we continued, and just before there was a small well of water, and Man, that was real refresher, the water was refreshingly cold. and if we would have time, I could have had a bath there such a nice was that water.
so after drinking plentyful of water, fully recharged our batteries, It did take no time to reach at the top. And we reached to Highest peak(5400 feet) in sahydri ranges. it took has 3 hrs to climb the top. It was real satisfaction reaching , the Everest of Maharashtra. we sat there for while. Ate some food and then started back. On the way, Jignesh had a problem in his knee, and because of that, we came back very slowly. and it took 3 hrs
get down. after getting down, nagendra to complained about pain in his ankle. so we decided to ditch the plan for ratangad and instead decided to
see all the places like bhandardara lake, randha falls and konkankada on sunday.
we spent our night at bari, it was chilling cold there, we had a campfire and shared some stories.

then we went to see konkankada and MTDC resort. and at arnd 1pm we started for rajur and from rajur we got a bus back to pune at 3. reached pune at 8.30 pm..

So Trek was quite peaceful, but we decided that this is our last trek this season, and Ranjan Kumar now thinking of his new venture which is
Biking club. All the best ranjan kumar.

Bubble - I am bloggin it..:)

Transfer of vehicle to Pune from other state - updated on June 02/08

So after getting NOC from Hyderabad, Andhra Pradesh, Next step was to re-register bike in Pune, I needed to deal with RTO, Pune, Maharashtra, Compare to hyd RTO, I found pune RTO to be much clumsier, full of agents, no PRO to get information with. still able to get information about what to do.
When I went to RTO, I was surrounded by Agents, who were demandeing 2000 Rs apart from all other taxes. I think doing it yourself should be much better as it does gives you experience of working with government offices. also after doing all hard work while getting NOC from hyd, I thought this should be miniscule task. so Wanted to do it myself.
After enquiring further, I came to know that person called Mr. Pazze handles all matters about vehicle outside Maharashtra, So I went to him and He handed me a document listing all the following. He is key person in carrying out this whole work. He will describe you whole procedure with very cool head and seems to be quite nice guy.
  1. NOC from original state where vehicle belongs(in my case Hyd, AP). 2 copies original
  2. RC book original, registration card
  3. Vehicle Insurance
  4. Invoice receipt – vehicle purchase dealer receipt
  5. Entry tax , in case when you bring the vehicle before 30 months of registration date.
  6. Address proof where you are staying currently with photo
  7. Affidavit of non-stolen vehicle by registered owner
  8. Form. No 26,27, 20,33 . you will get these forms free at rto.
  9. Pencil chassis print – 5 original
  10. NOC from Police Commisioner pune.
  11. Registration fee- 320
  12. 7 % for invoice cost as registration
You can refund previous paid tax by applying at Hydrabad.
He asked me to get the affidavit on 20 Rs stamp paper. so I went outside, was inquiring abt affidavit, one person demanded me Rs 200 per affidavit and I asked some other person he was taking 100 Rs so I asked him to do the work. so while having conversation with him, I came to know that He also had reregistered his vehicle but through agents and in turn paid quite big amount to get the work done, he was happy knowing that I am doing work myself not through RTO agent.
In pt. 10. to get NOC from Police Commisioner pune., you need a letter from RTO. You will get this letter from Mr. Pazze, after showing him all the above docs, after verifying docs, he will give you a letter from RTO to Commissioner of police, You need to give it in Commissioner of police office with xerox of NOC from hyd, and residential proof. and after 7 working days you will get the NOC from Pune police. The concerned person is Mr. Chavan. He will issue you NOC in 10 minutes, if everything is ok.
Then you need to submit all of above docs to Mr. Pazze and he will check the things and you need to get assessement done from counter 30/31( i think). then after getting how much amount you need to pay, you need to pay tax at counter 23/24 (i think..). and then re submit docs along with receipt of tax payment to Mr. Pazze. He will ask you to see him after 1 and half months.
So till now, it took around 2 weeks to get this much work done.
So finally I got my docs back from RTO officer, after that I had to go to alandi office to acquire a sign from RTO officer who checks the vehicles and gives you back the paper which takes 1 hours.
Now I need to give this docs back to RTO and get New maharashtra registration number and then apply for tax refund from hyderabad office.
I have written this blog in 2007. RTO procedure might have underwent some changes. if any of you go to RTO and find something is changed, I do request you to add comment or post link to your blog to help people who read this blog.
please post comments, if you have any queries. also if you know anything more than whats written here, please let us know. we would like to hear from you.

Harishchandra gad in winter

So harishchandra gad longtime wish to visit HC gad in winter.
as last time we went in monsoon and we couldnt see much from top and that was like we went running to top and came down running. but that was different fun, trekking in heavy rain.
but Trekkin in winter was chill experience too. actually i can say it was mismanaged affair, none of the thing we planned did go well, starting from catching bus to nashik till we came back but its altogether different fun of making decisions when everything goes wrong and I think in every trek I experienced same thing but this was peak..
excerpts are like this..
getting into crowded bus then waiting for 2 hrs at strange place called aale phata and eating whatever we can get at that strange place then getting into a bus with our lives on stakes of bus drive who should better be in F1 race rather than recruited to run a state transport bus..such horrible was that drive...then walking 6-7 km at 1am in night and sleeping (or say trying to let time go in midst of ranjank's deadly snores)for 2 hrs...then starting for trek at 4.30 in the morning half sleep condition ...then that superb feelings of being at top of the world after reaching to
taramati point and fun at konkan kada. and who can forget never ending journey back to base village...and most crazy thing I did with rakesh when we were in no condition that I cant even take next step with soaring lengs, then somehow I asked rakesh, "can he run?" then he didn't believe , asked me again, i confirmed , we started running ..and we ran damn more than 1 km, I think I could have run any distance to return to khubi phata..

you can read
Jignesh's blog for details...

lot to write about this trek...but for now just enjoy photos...

Working Class Hero

John Lennon wrote a song about Them and us.

Working Class Hero

As soon as you're born they make you feel small
By giving you no time instead of it all
Till the pain is so big you feel nothing at all
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

They hurt you at home and they hit you at school
They hate you if you're clever and they despise a fool
Till you're so fucking crazy you can't follow their rules
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

When they've tortured and scared you for twenty odd years
Then they expect you to pick a career
When you can't really function you're so full of fear
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

Keep you doped with religion and sex and TV
And you think you're so clever and classless and free
But you're still fucking peasants as far as I can see
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

There's room at the top they are telling you still
But first you must learn how to smile as you kill
If you want to be like the folks on the hill
A working class hero is something to be
A working class hero is something to be

If you want to be a hero well just follow me
If you want to be a hero well just follow me

fountain pen

I will not be responsible for anything happens to reader who read this post. read on ur own risk

this is kind of imaginative and you can find painu post..but still you can enjoy it..
so story goes like this.
yesterday we were talking abt friend was saying he couldnt read the Fountainhead as he found it heavy. this discussion was enough to put Fountainhead in my head as being read this novel twice and top on my favourites list. so my dearest hobby is to disect the words and reconnect the words with replacing them with synonims from different words or make some funny words/meanings out of word.

so "fountain" was the one. this word made me quickly recall me a past when I did not know the meaning of word fountain and one of my friend pained over my lack of knowledge :). till that time I knew the because it came in fountain pen.

so i started thinking about fountain pen and started disecting this word fountain like
fountain => found + ten (suppressed 'd')
=> pound 10

this meant I was actually found out what was the original Sellsman was doing..
they were actually selling some Pen with 10 pounds. and were shouting pound 10 pen.
and people mistaken that as a fountain pens.. and hence the name origined..

And with invention of this crazy origin of why they call it fountain pen the fountain pen and hence the Revenge!!! was it not sweet?

Chak de India

Saturday went to swargate for work and on the way , shahrukh's poster with hockey stick in hand was sufficient
to made me curious. and it was poster of movie "Chak de India", is the story of a coach's fight to make his hockey team, Team India, the best in the world. It is a film about self-belief, perseverance, determination and the human spirit to fight and win.

This movie will be releasing sometime next week or so. I am very excited to see this movie as first it based on Hockey teams struggle and triumphs, which should definitely will remind me our own struggles at Inter-IITs and BHAs.
I can write loads on it but will write one more blog after movie release.

I think this is the Best time the movie is releasing with Real India's rocking sport scene this month.
With Saniya mirza into finals of stanford open and won the doubles title.

Team India dominating at second Test at tent bridge.

Even Indian Football team is in news with winning 2 games out of 3 in portugal.

what more we can say other than

Chak de, India.

This weekend was pretty active, went for a small trek ,kor(a)igad on saturday. Trek was quite disappointment as rain was missing from the scene. still enjoyed long walkin and came back with
my face red because of exposure to sunlight. I wondered because 2-3 years of job spent in AC rooms
of corporate office changed me so that i can no more expose myself to my favourite SUN.
anyways on sunday went to satara with my car. Pune-Satara NH4 is so nice that i can drive constantly between 80-100kms which results in taking only less than two hrs to to reach my place.

so why the title of blog is relativity?
actually incidence is like this. while coming back from satara on monday morning i drove the car with ardn speed of 100 km per hr. So when I entered city via balewadi phata, I was in no mood to decrease my speed forgetting completely that roads in pune are not like Highways. and after some time a wagon R was ahead of me, a old guy was driving. I was pretty frustrated with this guy because he was not allowing me to overtook him as roads were narrow. so left no option to follow him. I was pretty frustrated with driving wiht this speed after driving at double speed just fifteen minutes ago.
after some time, I noticed speedometer , it was showing pretty 50 km per hr speed and I said not bad. and I wondered when daily I drives from office to home or vice versa , I never speeded above 40kmph. and I do comfortable with that speed. see now how impatient I have bacome with driving ?
and then realizing this I smiled and drove back to home happily.. as most of the thing do have happy endings like bollywood cinema:).

some pics from trek

A Foolish Consistency is the Hobgoblin of Little Minds

don't get be scared by title of this blog. actually i got this from python documentation about program styles.

Two good reasons to break a particular rule:
(1) When applying the rule would make the code less readable, even for someone who is used to reading code that follows the rules.

(2) To be consistent with surrounding code that also breaks it (maybe for historic reasons) -- although this is also an opportunity to clean up someone else's mess (in true XP style).

excerpts from Foundation series 2 by asimov..great work..

first speaker advising the student who he thinks will follow him to become first speaker."

No - now you must take this phlegmatically. You had hoped you would qualify. you had feared you would not. Actually, both hope and fear are weaknesses. You knew you would qualify and you hesitate to admit the fact because such knowledge might stamp you as cocksure and therefore unfit. Nonsense! The most hopelessly stupid man is he who is not aware that he is wise. It is part of your qualification that you knew you would qualify.

my favourite song...

Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
And i say it's all right

Little darling, it's been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And i say it's all right

Little darling, the smiles returning to the faces
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been here
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And i say it's all right

Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...
Sun, sun, sun, here it comes...

Little darling, i feel that ice is slowly melting
Little darling, it seems like years since it's been clear
Here comes the sun, here comes the sun,
And i say it's all right
It's all righ

Dog Fight

I do came to conclusion that animals do have their special language.. reason behind this follows..

there was funny incident happened at my home. last week, we had a small function at home.
we named my nephew, "shishir".

Mr. Shishir More...our next generation.

so funny incident goes like this...function was going great. we have a dog , big dobberman at our home. don't go by its dengerous look. its really cooool dog. my dog wokes us in the morning or informs us whenever someone comes to our home... mast kutta hai...

our dog was suffering with pain in leg. dog was not able to walk. we called up doctor. and doctor putup a nice bandage on her right leg. but after that she was able to walk.but she preferred taking rest.she was lying quitely at her favourite corner. then bunty(my other nephew) took her for walk. as she is a dog who believes in Gandhian philosophy :). We never put chain and belt in her both were roaming around. I was busy with taking snaps at party. suddenly I heard people shouting and someone asked me to look outside..I can't believe my eyes. our dog brutally attacked our neighbourhood dog. she caught that dog's right leg and was pulling his leg. that dog was crying helplessly. it was too brutall attack. somehow managed to pull our angry dog away from that poor dog.

actaully after thinking a bit other day about this funny incident (definitely not funny for other dog) ..I did inferred nice reason behind this dog fight..:) reason goes like this...our neighbourhood dog must have teased my dog about her broken that she gave him punishment by breaking that dogs leg which was exactly right leg..
"eent ka jawab pathar se.." hehehehehe ...more conversation..may be during initial fight with bho..bho...conversion
might have happened like this...

other dog: hey crippled dog (teasing...)
my dog: don't talk like this..or mein tera peyr(legs) tod dunga..
other dog: chal dikha pair todke...
my dog: yele tod diya....(after pulling other dog's leg apart) :))

so i think its not only human who only can tease and fight with each other..the animals do similler things too...found it very very amusing...:)) if one able to understand language of animals...or even of dogs. kafi maza aayega..

Wednesday, May 23, 2007 in metro

Early Bird Entrepreneur's life..

" you will get some crazy idea and you think this ideas is going to change the world..this idea will make peoples life easier…it will make them richer..
And finally it will make you famous and Richest person on the earth…so you will spend plenty of time thinking about that idea.. You will concentrate on that idea leaving behind all the works you have in your can’t sleep in the nights and you can’t stop urself from dreaming about great Future of yours…you will think all the non practical consequences of you idea…then some current lifesaving work will hit upon you so that you can’t follow your idea and after some days you will again think of that idea and you will find that ideas is quite useless….Everything is finished you have lost 2-3 nights good sleep …you will be in dark of depressions cursing your own destiny and some missed chances and crashed dreams "

this is the note i wrote, sometime in past when i got frustruted with new ideas coming into my mind each day and making my day-to-day life nightmare to live.
as i thought this would be useless things i am doing , but indeed now I did realized that is actually nice practice to develop concrete ideas only I should not think of idea of materializing the idea into reality as most of the time those ideas are out of time. and like my friend satya's favourite saying "each dog has his day" ..."each idea will have its day"...actually I am now using a web 2.0 product which is in alpha stage for archiving my ideas and i am finding its fulfilling my needs.

Does this make Sense?

Sandip: hi
Pradeep: yo
Sandip: mere dimag me ek theory aaya aaj..
Pradeep: bata
Sandip: how much efforts you put and how much output you achieves seems to be constant across all the people
phd wala research karta hi rehta hai
karta hi rehta hia
tabhi kuch 10 -20 saal baad kuch useful thing bahar aati hai
aur koi normal banda roj kuch chota chota kaam
karta rehta hai..
aur usko roj ki rojiroti usi kaam se milti hai..
Pradeep: par output barabar kahan hua
Sandip: aur kya
cumulative output liya to
barabar hi ho jayega..
Pradeep: par second aadmi ne sirf rozi roti kamayi
pehle aadmi ne rozi roti ke saath kuchh useful bhi kiya
Sandip: usne roji roti nahin kamayii
usne jo output diya
uske liye usko rojiroti mili
agar usne woh output nahin diya hota to
usko rojiroti nahin milti
Pradeep: kayi baar aisa bhee toh hota hai ki sum of parts is greater than the parts
sahi bola
Sandip: mein soch..
raha tha ki
jo bhi great discoveries/ya bhi solid work which can only be
achieved after working long term
as its not atall possible to achieve it thinking at short term
Pradeep: haan
Sandip: so its like energy is getting accumulated in that particular person..
till all that energy comes out with that final achievement...
which requires much more efforts..although
and the person
who does daily works..releases energy in him ..regularly..
Pradeep: haan..par long term wala bechara bhi toh roz hi kaam kar raha hai na
Sandip: but jabtak final output is not meaningful
his daily work don't have a value at all..
see the cricket team..
they have to perform in a final world cup
they didn't performed
so whatever work they do inbetween carried zero value..
Pradeep: hehe
sahee bola
Sandip: the final output is overshadows the work you did meanwhile.
aur in this case..success and failures which is the
only measure of output..
Pradeep: waah..abey sahee theory hai
book-vook lihh daal
Sandip: abhi apun yeh discussion blog me dalega..
Pradeep: seminars kar school colleges mein jaake
Sandip: heeheheheh
Pradeep: :D
Sandip: waise bhi blog likhne me kuch milta hi ch nahin
