This page is about my travels, which are more like meanderings than schedule bound and controlled iternaries. While the time to travel is fixed based on job and holiday schedule the destination is very often not! A general direction or area is usually decided between me and my better half, car loaded with bare essentials and off we go. Night spent at whatever location takes our fancy and next day again charting in to unknown. As I love driving distance or time of the day is of no great consequence. We may end up spending a whole day around a town / a lake / a forest or just drive endlessly taking in the passing country side.

Ideally I would rather keep doing this but then this is a dream that clashes with reality.

As I work though layer and layers of human interactions some things stand out. Some times I am struck with thoughts totaly out of the blue and want to do something about it.Some times there is nothing to do but but whine about unpleasantness and hope that enough people notice and get on board so that the cause of whinning may be removed. I know this is wishful but then not expressing intent never got any one any where. Given right mix a small spark can ignite a fire and that fire can turn in to all consuming blaze. With this intent I am going to be writing about things that need changes or things that need to be corrected while there is still time.

Now do not take it wrongly that I am a whiner only. In my own small way I act on thoughts in polite but persistent manner. I only wish and hope that if you also are of similar mind please do join the bandwagon instead of just cursing and looking the other way.

This section will be devoted to myself and my exploits!

As most of people I am kind of hesitant to talk about myself and hence the section heading “Mumblings”
