Happy World Photography Day: With Inspiring Quotes

The World Photography Day originates from the invention of the Daguerreotype, a photographic processes developed by Joseph Nicèphore Nièpce and Louis Daguerre in 1837. On August 19, 1839, the French government purchased the patent and announced the invention as a gift “Free to the World”.

Photography has the ability to tell stories and inspire people. It has changed the way we see the world and gave us the ability to share our perception on the world around us. The moment might be fleeting, but once photographed it gets frozen for a lifetime. Photographs have the potential to evoke memories and take us back to the past.The day also serves as an inspiration for many to take up photography as a profession or to pursue it as a zealous hobby.

Happy Friendship day: A journey through my travels I keep recollecting fond memories with friends..

Friendship is a little more trust,
A little less try,
A little more laugh,
And a little less cry,
A little more WE and a little less I.
Happy Friendship Day!

Few hours in Goa..

After finishing our Pulmokarn2018 conference in KLE university, Belgaum we headed towards goa. It was a sudden plan and we just boarded a 4.30bus at Belgaum central bus stand to Mapusa, Goa.

The mind of friends are like railway track. they never meet.. but has to go together to keep the friendship alive…..

It was a different experience traveling in an RTC bus on a rainy day through the dense forest and narrow ghat roads with visibility being even less than 10 Meters at certain points! It was an adventurous journey which kept us at the edge of the seat as we didn’t know how the driver is managing to drive in such tough situation. There was a short tea break in the middle of the trip and also many dropping points. It became dark halfway through the journey and by the time we got down at Mapusa it was 9 15 pm, and we were filled with awe while bidding good bye to the bus driver who was very friendly and wondered how he manages to drive on those roads day & night every single day with unpredictable climate.

Soon after getting down we hired Bikes and headed to our prebooked hotel in Calangute. After check-in we soon left to a Sunday night party in Titos at Baga beach. It was a colourful party with many different performers and dj’s. We had a midnight walk at baga beach which was less crowded and peaceful.

This is a throwback picture of my previous trip to Goa in 2013. And this is my all time favorite picture @ Chapora Fort

Next morning we had breakfast at our favourite restaurant casa goana, Calangute road and started for Aguada fort.Since it was drizzling all the time we didn’t take many pics in Goa. We were almost drenched by the time we reached Aguada Fort. We spent some time at Aguada fort appreciating the beauty of the fort and sea waves meeting the walls of the fort.

Then we had lunch at Bom sucesso. And then we bid adieu to goa for now and started our journey back as we had 4 30 pm bus to Hyderabad. Though it was a short trip it was worthwhile to come all the way to Goa and enjoy its beauty in this monsoon. Hence, Goa will never disappoint you even if it’s for a short span.

Tips from my perspective:

1. Take a Bus from belgaum to Panaji and get down at Mapusa if you are planning a trip to the happening places. Ticket price was 105rupees.

2. Dont take Unreliable Taxis to cut down the journey time as the road is not very safe.

3. Carry your raincoats & umbrella.

4. Must try apple pie with custard at Cafe Goan.
