An example of "Vision"

Around 5 yrs back I posted on my blog about the MMTS service that was started in hyderabad around the year 2003. Here's the link for the post:-
The service then was not a big hit and was criticized for the low occupancy. Fast forward it to now...8 yrs during the peak hours it's full to the brim, offers a cheap, fast, green alternative to other modes of transport. Considering the growing demand, additional trains and coaches were introduced couple of days back. My wife and I are both using this service to commute to work and cant stop praising/thanking it everyday. This is a true example of a vision. The vision of Mr. Chandrababu Naidu (and his team). Kudos to them. We need leaders like him.

Excellent Post on Time Management

Another Brick in the wall

It's very easy to give up...
Extremely difficult to stand up and fight.

If you think giving up/detachment is a virtue... then you are wrong... the separation is thin. Detachment is the state in which you didn't have a yearning for it, but you give up something, to which you were attached some point of time. You gave up not because you wanted to be detached...rather you accepted the defeat and were forced to forfeit and be detached.

Dont give up... be detached !!!'s a big pun

Cycling in hyderabad

After a long time did a long ride along with Anitha. She on her Merida and I on my Specialized. Got up early and started at 6.15 am from our house in srinagar colony and went all the way to Gandipet lake (a.k.a Osman Sagar Lake). It's around 28km one way. It was a little cold on the way and roads were empty and the road through Artillery center was very good. It was a pleasant ride to Gandipet. It got hotter on the way back though and the traffic at Mehdipatnam was a spoiler. Were back at our home by 9.45 am. Here's the Google pedometer map of the route : . Good to be back on the bike after quite some time. Both of us enjoyed it.
