Cell - Stephen King


Stephen King's new book Cell was published in February 2006. I got my hands on the hardcover edition from Hodder & Stoughton.

Ghost who flies

The new Pulsar 180 is here. I got a taste of it this morning (thanks to Venkat of AutoService).


The LED tail-lights are a beautiful addition. Add to it the beefed up rear end and you get a really powerful look.



The new look pilot lamps led to it's being called the Phantom.



Sadly the edge-of-the-seat look of the rear part has not been carried onto the tank. That leaves the bike look a little less sporty than it could've been. The fuel tank feels puny in the overall scheme of things. A sharper profile for the fuel tank would have made it a killer.



Other features that I forgot to photograph (dumb me!!)

1. Digital Console - Speedometer, Tripmeter, Odometer, Fuel Gauge. The console looks beautiful and has a orangy glow for the backlight.

2. Contactless backlit switchgear - better life. Self-cancelling turn indicators - like in cars.

3. A whole lot of electronic wizardry to keep it safe from us. :) For ex.

  • 3 non-starts on the electronic ignition and the bike disallows further attempts for 20 secs.
  • Switch off engine with lights on and restart. The lights don't come on until you use the light switches again. Ensures better lamp life and keeps the electricals safer.
  • The console indicators are brighter when the headlamp/pilot lamp are not switched on. Better visibility in daylight.
Awesome bike overall. Nice, linear power delivery - will be further tested this saturday :). The tank should definitely have been sharper and slightly bigger. The best part is the price. It will sell for the same price as the current 180 DTSi (65k on-road).

Home Away From Home


Saw these two families of train travellers, that was travelling with almost their whole home - kitchen included. Yes, I saw them cook their dinner right there. Mosquito Coils were on show too. The amount of luggage they were carrying shocked me!!

Coffee?

Visit -->Here<-- for more.




Pictures from "Coffee?", a nice little coffee shop off Greenways Road.




Alongside good coffee are served photographs by Sharad Haksar - a sale towards charity.



I tried the Turkish coffee, which has a whiff of cardamom and some other spices. Overall a dainty, quite place to relax your blues away.

Pandhikari, Coffee and Peace


Went biking to Madikeri. Around 650kms in all. Stayed at this nice place in a place called Cherumbane.


4WDed a jeep up a really steep, slushy track. In the end it took an additional 5MP (man-power) to get it up the incline.


Oh! We also a ditched a jeep. :)

Chayakada


My stock of tea at work!! Yep, Earl Grey is my favourite. I don't have a good evening tea yet. Probably some ceylon chaai is called for.

Dreams



This is where some dreams will get unfurled in about two years. Out of these bricks and iron will arise that home that has already been built elsewhere. Here it will manifest into a dream-come-true. 8 floors of human engineering, one little home in it that's meant to be. Posted by Picasa

BTM (Jayadeva Circle) Flyover


After almost three years of legal battles, etc. the flyover on Jayadeva Circle is getting inaugurated today. The roofed-structure you see is today the venue for the CM's inaugural address. Will try and post pictures after the flyover is opened up. Posted by Picasa
