Rajeev Gandhi Memorial on Beach road

11th October    was    being celebrated   as     KARBA   CHAUTH     (a new element   to RENEW bonding between wife and husband being heavily   propagated   by   TV SERIAL   all over India).  Though there   was     a   threat of   CYCLONE   “ hud Hud”    over   Vizag, most   of us ignored   it   as,(  in    previous   occasions    of   such   alarm ) we had to cut a sorry figure   in narrating    our   absolutely “TROUBLE FREE “life    and  faced difficulty   in describing    a few   millimeter   rise of   WAVE in the   sea.

Our flat    is located on the second row of   apartments    from   beach road.

At  about   6 PM  , I   informed    my  anxious   son   and daughter     ( Mumbai   and   Delhi )  that   there  was  a clear  sky   with   visible  moon    for   Karba  chauth   calibration    .  They laughed    but    CAUTIONED     US    not to take things lightly  …

C for Cyclone- Cyclone Hudhud

Deadly Tropical Cyclone Hudhud Strikes India on October 12

Hudhud was the equivalent of a strong Category 3 hurricane with winds sustained at 200 kph (125 mph) before making landfall on Sunday morning near Visakhapatnam.

Hudhud caused extensive damage to the city of Visakhapatnam and the neighboring districts .

Visakhapatnam is now bereaved of its greenery. 80% trees are uprooted except coconut and palm trees . We were confined to our flat for six days without electricity and drinking water. I could not go out and take pictures as lift was not working.

Now Visakhapatnam does not looks like  the photos i have posted before of lush green city and Vuda park.  Its impact was more drastic on the lives of the poor, the slum dwellers and fishing villages along the coast.

Mountain out of …

Living under constant threat of terrorism makes one skeptical of even small things.

When people saw this thing lying on the footpath they started all sorts of speculation from a safe distance. Everyone had his own idea about what it could be.

As soon as someone mentioned bomb, everyone started to run. Someone called the bomb squad. Suddenly a man came cycling fast, picked it. Tying it to the cycle carrier muttered, ‘ drop dare to drop again, I’m already late for work.’

Someone caught him. ‘You can’t leave before telling what this is?’

‘My mop, what else? ‘Said he.

Adopt the pace of nature: her secret is patience. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson


There is a pleasure in the pathless woods,
There is a rapture on the lonely shore,
There is society, where none intrudes,
By the deep sea, and music in its roar:
I love not man the less, but Nature more.
~George Gordon, Lord Byron, Childe Harold’s Pilgrimage
