Ride to B R Hills & K Gudi Wilderness Camp

I was at my friend's room partying on 18th night, had to leave at 12 as I am going on a ride with another friend Arun and two others.

Went to my place and I couldn't get any sleep, sometimes I get this excitement before a bike ride, so that's when I wrote the article on Free Basics. After completing it and finishing a debate with another guy over it I looked at the time and it was 3 a.m, even a short nap was pointless as we planned to start at 4 a.m, so I geared up and we met at a place which we decided earlier and started our ride.

Why Facebook's "Free Basics" is Evil (another fancy name to its

There are dozens of beautiful articles/videos which explains the importance of Net Neutrality, yet, people miserably fail to understand its vital importance in this information age.
This is another post to explain it in my own words, hopefully at least 1 out of 10 people who reads this can understand its importance and act accordingly.
Note: This is solely intended to users who still fail to understand the utmost importance of Net Neutrality and fall for the fancy campaigns like

How can I destroy The Internet?

That was a question asked by a guy in Quora, I get frequent questions like that, but at times I fail to control the urge to not answer them. So below was my reply.

Actual Question:

The Internet: How can I destroy internet? Though I know most people would laugh it away but this thing came into my mind as I was learning about worms.

The Martian movie blunder

I really enjoyed The Martian movie, every minute of it! But it's hard to keep the rational side of me to aside, so here is some rant.

One of the biggest blunder in the movie.

Matt getting knocked off by the sand storm in the movie beginning scene.

Mars atmosphere, well, there's actually no atmosphere in Mars from Earth's perspective, the air is so thin, 100 times less denser than Earth's

One of those profound experiences

So I rode to Yercaud, after visiting the watch tower at Karadiyur View Point I was heading back to my room, all of a sudden thick clouds loomed the entire mountain with thunders in no time, and it started to rain! Actually, I got freaked out, because I am alone, riding in a remote area with no proper connectivity, I was getting mobile signal back in the watch tower but not here.

I rode fast and stopped near a temple and went inside as it started to rain very heavily. It was almost completely dark (still 6:30 p.m)

First Anniversary! :D

July 4th 2014, the day I bought my first bike, Enfield Thunderbird 500. Today after covering some 15,000 odd kilometers I look back at my reasons behind making one of the best choices of my life.
1st: I fell in love with the Enfield Thunderbird’s new design.
2nd: I desperately needed a two wheeler for my daily commute and other traveling needs.

Ride to Kodaikanal, my first long ride

Long ride was a pending item in my list, I wanted to see how myself and my bike can perform in such rides and to see if we both are capable for my upcoming long list of tours, I chose Kodaikanal for this ride. Kodai was always in my interest, so planned for it and started on 23rd morning around 7:00 a.m.

I took NH 7 via Hosur, it took me more than an hour just to come out of Bengaluru's traffic, 7:00 a.m is when the traffic slowly starts congesting almost every part of the city, and it was even more when I reached Silk Board junction. Anyways, managed to come out of it. Had breakfast

Clicked 9000 Kilometers on my Thunderbird 500!

It's been 8 months and yesterday I gave my beloved bike Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500 to its final free servicing, out of my curiosity I asked the servicing center guys to show me how to change the engine oil, break pads, clutch cable and couple of other important routines that are done for a healthy bike life.
HSR Services in Bangalore are good enough (not great) when it comes to Enfield servicing and shows professionalism at job,
