Is marriage a Social Obligation?

I am 28 and single, I enjoy my life by travelling solo, doing photography, reading books and last but not least, my job.

Why are you still single? Aren’t you planning for kids? House? Your biological clock is ticking!

These are the kind of shit I am hearing these days, I really don’t understand why people think marriage is so relevant for a “happy life”. For me, it’s just an option out of million other trivial options I have. I really don’t feel it should be a compulsion.

Foggy and Energetic ride from Tirupati to Bengaluru

I started to Tirupati on Jan 8th morning around 7:45 a.m, ride was good, and that route is routine for me. Road was not good after Chittoor due to the recent rains but they fixed it this time, for the most part. Reached home around 12:45 p.m with a long break in between just to relax.

Usual stuff at home and I rode to Nellor on 9th Jan ~140 km from Tirupati, it was a single road till Naidupeta and then it's the NH 5 till Nellor, beautiful tarmac. Reason was to meet a friend and after that I came back to Tirupati on the same day evening. The road passes next to several farm fields

2016 NYE ride # Day 3 & 4

Continuation from Day 1 & 2

Day 3:

Got up at 7:00 a.m, freshened up and started to Beypore Port. This port has rich history, It has the reputation of building some of the finest boats in ancient times, worth reading its history. Besides its amazing historical background, the area is extremely dirty now, don't even think about going to its beach, it looks like a dump yard! Only place I liked and spent most of the time was near its stone pier, it goes almost 1 km into the ocean, a rewarding walk where you'll be presented with several birds, fishing ships, navy vessels and occasionally playful bottlenose dolphins. I had the pleasure of watching them all.

2016 NYE ride # Day 1 & 2

I wanted to escape 2016 NYE out to somewhere where I can be just myself. So I planned this ride for 4 days, the ride was planned, but not the places. Till the day before the ride I wasn't fixed on what places to go, roughly made a list and settled on 3 - Mysuru, Kozhikode and Mangaluru. On 30th Dec I started to Mysuru.
