Train to Hyderabad

Last Friday was like any other day in September - the weather was pleasant enough, since it had rained a few hours before, and the sun was already low when we boarded the train at Egmore Station.

We left Chennai at about 5:00 pm and were heading for Hyderabad. I was sitting in the train with my friend. There was nothing much to do apart from keeping up the conversation. After a while we got silent. I had forgotten to charge my ipod so the battery didn't last long. The only thing left was to enjoy the view of the countryside as the train passed by.

Maybe the last fishing trip for the day

I have to admit I was quite apprehensive about the journey. But it turned out to be better than I had ever imagined. The sun set slowly in the west as we passed by different places, different people who were doing their daily chores and livelyhoods. The reflection of the setting sun on the numerous lakes were simply magnificent.

Some industry we passed by

I began taking pictures when, just then, the unthinkable happened: the camera went black. I had forgotten to charge my camera... again. But nevertheless, I did manage to take some photos.

Standing tall and mighty

The morning after, we finally reached Hyderabad. I promised myself that next time I would be ready. Next time I'll have an extra pair of batteries.

Ex-Paulians Football Match

Due to numerous requests the full video will be available for download shortly. I'll let you know as soon as I can.

Meanwhile, this is another trailer which I've created so you'll know what to expect in the video.

Anyways, I promise to hurry on with the upload. The problem here is the power supply. Things were way better in Chennai. I don't have an UPS (because you don't need one in Chennai) and with these numerous power cuts in the middle of uploading the video, which usually takes hours with my current broadband connection, I have to start all over from the beginning.

UPDATE: I quit trying to upload it to But I found an alternative: p2p file sharing. The full video is available for download at

Videos: Picnic

I can't believe it's already been three months since we went for this picnic. There were sixteen of us that day - 'Choolaimedu Mizos' as we proudly called ourselves.

We certainly had fun and it was great. However, it rained a bit for about 10 minutes while we were in the pool and the rain was way colder than the water in the swimming pool. So we didn't mind staying there and continued playing water polo.

We had dinner late in the evening. Everything was great - the place, the weather (a bit cloudy so we weren't afraid to get sun burned), the food and the whole gang.

And that was back in May. Gosh! how time flies...
