@ Manipal

June 24, 2005

Thanks to my sis’s medical entrance exams i have been travelling a lot for the past three months… I had travelled more distance in these three months than whole of my past 23 years … most of the distance travelled by indian railways followed by roadways and my first ever air travel …. squeeze into this my agra and jammu visit (along with deepak … Today i am sitting in Manipal looooooong way from Delhi to attend counselling on my sis’s behalf … all alone … i always wished to travel loooooooong distances alone … Once again thanks to shivangi … who decided for at least securing the seat in Kasturba medical college, Manipal … it was hard decision …. and was taken in very very dramatic way …(I wont get into all tht)it was finally decided tht i will fly down to blore and then to Manipal by bus …. so here I am in Manipal … sitting in the comp lab of the college .. and mind it it aint bad … in fact one of the finest campuses i have ever seen … and add to it the beauty of Manipal and the awesome weather … take my words it cant get better than this!! (catch is ….the fee!!!… if you can afford it …) everything over here is really impressive and speaks for itself … fully automated counseling system took just half an hour to get the seat of your choice and issue of the admit card !! (you fill the form, deposit the documents … sit down and relax …. !!!)
then came the time to stroll around in campus … four floors of medical library … and this comp lab has these HP comps with the latest intel chipset .. (I cant help myslf …) and Samsung TFT’s …. i somehow managed to sneak into it .. this is my second entry … it is getting easier to get in .. bottom line is tht if you can afford it … its the best of private colleges in India … (hey did i tell ya its paid … this suring costs me 10 rs an hour) ….
After a purpose less walk around the city for two hours …its a small but complete town …it took me just half an hour and i was out of it …. walking to Udupi …all of a sudden this no purpose walk got two goals … ONE to reach the udupi railway station near indrali temple and get to know the status of my reservations … (which aint yet confirmed) … TWO to walk to the temple … it was real good walk, up the hill to reach Indrali temple ….. its rightly said … keep walking …. take the steps … rest will follow …. then on my way back i once again sneaked in …. (this time there were no guards to stop me .. !!) Logged in to this virtual world …. again started with a purpose less browsing … checking mails …chcking blog for comments … visiting other blogs …everybody talking about life and life and life …from blogs thought of chcking out what wikipedia has to say about Blogs chck it out …its really very informative … i love to cross chck wikipedia and google …. searched for Manipal … lo … it has something to say one more stop which i will like to share … chck out WIKIBOOKS one of the many projects of wikimedia …also chck out the BOOKS on this wikiwiki…
with all this two hours are about to end … and once again see how this one more purpose less stroll ends up with one meaningful post 🙂

similarly my travelling will end up for a while with my last visit to Hyderabad … where i will be joining air force academy (most probably i will be joining 😉 ) will talk about this travelling in other post … some other day …

p.s. This one is long awaited post …check out THIS ARTICLE@ WIREDit talks about how horrifying can the 21st technology get!!
