Halasuru Lake

See the condition of the Halasuru lake, one of few lakes left in Bengaluru. These photos were taken on 26th April 2015. You can also see people catching fish and taking home. There is also an official fish stall which sells the fish there. With lake water contaminated, i doubt those fish are edible. While we were taking these snaps we found people dumping the ashes and other pooja stuff with lot of plastic in them to lake.

These photos were shot on my Moto E.

Kannada

ಕನ್ನಡ ಭಾಷೆ ಮತ್ತು ಅದರ ಸ್ವಚ್ಛತೆ…

ಹಾಗೆ ಸುಮ್ಮನೆ… ಇ ಆಲೋಚನೆ ಬಂತು. ಕನ್ನಡ  ಭಾಷೆ ಹುಟ್ಟುವಾಗಲೇ neat ಅಗಿತ್ತ ಅಥವಾ ಆಮೇಲೆ neat ಆಯ್ತಾ… ಆಡು ಭಾಷೆ ಮಾತಾಡ್ತಾ ಮಾತಾಡ್ತಾ ಆದ್ರೆ, ಬಾಷೆಗೆ ನುಣುಪು ಹೇಗೆ ಬಂತು? ಮೊದಲು ಲಿಪಿ ಬಂತ ಅಥವಾ ಆಡು ಬಾಷೆ ಇತ್ತ?

ನಾವೆಲ್ಲಾ ಕನ್ನಡದ ಉದ್ದಾರಕ್ಕಾಗಿ ಏನು ಮಾಡ್ತಾ ಇದ್ದೀವಿ? ಕನ್ನಡದ ಸದ್ಬಳಕೆ ಆಗ್ತಿದೆಯ. ಇಂದಿನ FM Channelಗಳ (ಕಂಗ್ಲಿಷ್, ಕಂದಿ, ಕಮಿಳ್…. ) ಯುಗದಲ್ಲಿ ಕನ್ನಡ ಕನ್ನಡವಾಗಿಯೆ ಉಳಿಯುವುದೇ? ಇ ತರಹದ mixingನ  ಅವಶ್ಯಕತೆ ಇದೆಯಾ…. ಇದು ಬಾಷೆಯ ಬೆಳವಣಿಗೆಯೇ?

ಬೆಂಗ್ಳೂರಲ್ಲಿ ಇವತ್ತು ದಿನಸಿ ತರೋಕೆ ಕೂಡ ಇಂಗ್ಲಿಷೋ ಹಿಂದಿನೋ ಅಥವಾ ತಮಿಳು ಗೊತ್ತಿರಬೇಕು. ಬೆಂಗ್ಳೂರಿನ ಕತೆ ಇಷ್ಟೆನಾ?

King has become sleek

Was surprised to look at King, he has become very thin, sleek.  Its nearly two months since i have cut down smoking, it’s just one per day(sometime none). And my favorite brand Gold flake Kings,  has come in new avatar “slk – Sleek Line Kings”

Felt very nice seeing him, and smoking one of him….. jiyo mere KinG….. and still am smoking just one per day….

Running Running Running

Running – what a way to get back to life….

I’ve seen many runners (people running away from love, people running away from doing their duty…. and am not talking about those cowards), but today i happened to see about this guy David Goggins (Thanks to Todd Reinhard and Vishwa for letting me know). What a runner he is. What made me to like him is his way of pushing the limits…

Chk this video

At one point he says the following, “I like to see what I’m made of… See exactly if there is a limit to the human soul.”

He goes on to say, “If you can see yourself doing something, you can do it.  If you can’t see yourself doing it, usually you can’t achieve it.”

He then says, “When you think you are done, you’re only 40 percent into what your body is capable of doing.  That’s just a limit that we put on ourselves.”

Forget the limit, many won’t even do what they are supposed do… pushing the limits may be dream to them…

Am trying to push the limits…. to run the sunfeast 2010 10K run in 60minutes, i know i can run that in 75 – 90 minutes…. am pushing myself, wish me luck….

write or read

am a newbie in this blog world. though i had attempted writing earlier, couldn’t write. infact couldn’t continue. i guess work and all other things in life made did not permit to do it.
now am planning to do it continuosly… also i want to improve my english… when i asked my dear freind vishwa about some good books on english writing, he told me

Kitti, Elements of Style is a must. It is a small book, but has a great deal of information in it. The Pen commandments by Steven Frank is a nice read. On Writing Well by William Zinsser is also a good book. There are many more, but this will suffice.

hopefully i’ll buy one of these books. one more hiccup here… if i buy a book… i have to start reading 🙂 what shall i do… start writing or reading…. confused….
