Happy New Year 2009

Wishing all a very very Happy, peaceful and prosperous new 2009!

Do you like doing things on your own or do you always prefer company?

There are friends of mine who need someone...even if they need to go to the bank.They find it very odd to be doing things like shopping, eating in a restaurant or any other errands on their own.

While I prefer to do most things on my own. Especially shopping, unless i am with a person who is very like-minded. That's because If I have ten things to buy and I have someone with me who just needs to buy a couple of would really be insensitive of me drag that person along for everything. Unless of course that person really enjoys it...for most people it becomes boring. And I would not be able to shop at ease either...'cause I would be thinking if the other perosn is comfortable giving so much time to me.

It is indeed a pleasure to get company whenever you need depending upon the situation...eating out...watching a film together...but if one can't function without can be tough.
What do you think?

Afternoon blues

Afternoons have always been very blue for me:(

Since I was a child...the thought of afternoon would depress me...i guess it dates back to the days when I would come back from school and have my lunch and then do my homework or get some sleep. (Not necessarily in that order) But both the tasks were not my favourites of course.

Play was certainly not allowed:(

I remember looking out of the window and waiting for evening to set in...when everything would feel good...there would be activity (I guess for me activity translated to play) ...and the crows would stop their "caws""caws" at least for a while (the sound would depress me always!)
After so many years, afternoons still has the same effect on me.
At work I barely realize the onset of afternoons so it does not matter.
But when I am at home and if I am alone with no books to read or any good films to watch...I again get into afternoon depression:(

I like mornings, evenings and nights a lot but afternoons...i don't know why...I am still trying to embrace...lets hope it changes that I can enjoy a complete day :)

Bandhavgarh National Park

Bandhavgarh National Park is situated in Umaria, Katni districts of Madhya Pradesh.It is around 164 kms from Jabalpur (rail head) .
The national park is beautiful....There is a fort up the Bandhavgarh hill. The fort is said to have built about 2000 years ago.We could not trek it:( We barely had time but maybe next time...
It has been a while since I went for a trip to a national park, the last one was early 2007 and this trip was a year before that...but what a trip and a half that was!

We stayed at the White tiger forest lodge of Madhya Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation forest.Great accomodation and good food. It was a very short trip. Just about 2 days ...and guess what?
We sighted the Tiger on the 2nd day. Infact there were two tigers...
I still remember the moment...we were sitting on an elephant and we had to go off the main road and inside the jungle....
I still get goose bumps just thinking about that moment...what magnificant creatures!
