IT pressure

Hey friends,
I ve just tasted the bitterness and the sweetness of the corporate world, on one side i consider myself as lucky as i got opportunity to join a big giant MNC where as on the other side, i feel the pressure as they always give us a fear of showing us the exit doors. Its good on one side that they pay good salaries, on the other side they make us work more than worth of it.
Any ways friends, these are my views which i had to share wit all my followers..
The above tagline is not applicable for the govt jobs.

Kerala-The land of exotic greens

Few days before i had been to the land of green and backwaters, yes its Kerala. I had been to Kasargod which comes in the north Kerala. Its the state in which you find lush greens all over.Its a coastal region, so be prepared to sweat it out. The places to watch in Kasargod are the Madhur Temple and the Bekal Fort and the beach.

Kerala internal transport is looked after by the private transports, so to reach out to the Madhur temple you get the private buses in the city, its around 20km from Kasargod, a 45 minutes journey. These private buses are totally airconditioned. Oops i mean with no glasses for windows and we can breathe easy in open air. The temple was very beautiful to see. The God residing there is Vinayak(Ganesh). There the main attraction which i found was a placard stating "ENTRY FOR HINDUS ONLY" which shooked me. This is the place where is saw the communalism. There is some other speciality related to the histoty. Once Tippu Sultan had attacked all the south Indian temples and when he came to this temple to attack, he felt very thirsty and asked for the water, the priests over there without any hesitation, brought some water for him to drink, there after Tippu thought the people here are very kind and as a matter of mercy and respect to the people who helped him, he didnt continue the attack on this temple. There is a mark stating the the sign of the sword mark where he wanted to attack on the temple. Its the story as i heard, i didnt create it.

Next we went to the old monument protected by the ASI(Archeological Survey of India) known as the Bekal Fort. This is some 20 km south of Kasargod town. Heard that this Fort was ruled lates by Tippu Sultan. The fort has been maintained very well and it attracts many national and international tourists, thus making it a very important monument. There is a Observation tower in the middle of the fort fro where we can have scenic view of the beach and the greenery of the Kerala. There is a entrance from the fort to the beach, the tides here are so huge, they are capable of engulfing the persons stranding on the beach or on the rocks there. We had been to the beach down the fort, the beach was very nice to enjoy. It will be a very wonderful view of the sunset from here.

You can reach out to the Kasargod town by the following ways. The nearest big city near it is Mangalore which is just 60km and a one and half hour journey. It comes on the National Highway NH17 so there is no problem of travel and we get the buses very frequently from Mangalore. The road travel will be so wonderful that you get many rivers,backwaters with unique kerala scenic view.
Hope you enjoy it when u go there.

How to choose the best bike

Here are some tips to buy a new , as which kind of bike to select, of which range of power etc. First of all the bike in India is almost a middle man's transport and many high class people prefer a car over a bike. But there are many high class hardcore bikers too who go on many adventures on the bike. The tips are as follows.
1. Decide what for do you need the bike? For adventure or the daily transport.
2. If its for adventures, its better to go with the high power bikes above 150cc such as TVS Apache, Bajaj Pulsar DTSi 150,180,200 and 220,Hero Honda Karizma or Honda Stunner.
3. Even the Bajaj Pulsar and the TVS Apache, Honda Uniorn ,Honda Shine fullfill the daily needs which are quiet powerful and economical and efficient.
4. But if you need a bike that is very economical for a long run and very efficient, then its better to go for Hero Honda Splendor or Bajaj Platina or Bajaj Discover whose cc are below 150cc.
5. These bikes are the best for the middle man, which are very efficient, economical and doesnt have much of the maintanence cost.
6. Where as the the above high end bikes are very costly, they are very powerful but their efficiency is too low.
7. If a economical bike gives a mileage of around 60km/litre, the high end bikes give the mileage of just 30km/litre on an average.
8. On the contradictory, the leader of racing kind of bikes has released a Yamaha R15, Yamaha FZ which make a style statement of the owner. They look dashing.
India is booming in the automobile sector, those days are gone when owning a scooter was a matter of fame. Indians are owning Suzuki Hayabasu and Honda CBR kind of bikes. Which the Indians decades ago only dreamt of owning it. These days we get bikes which ever suits us. So better be sensible while buying a bike and decide for the best one.
