The Boomerang - [Photo Blog] Of walk-talks, rail-trails and fly-highs

 
Here is the recap of our trip to Katoomba, the blue mountains, NSW
 
A walk to remember
 
 
Scenic walkway, cable car ride and scenic railway in pictures for you. Please click on the pictures to zoom in 
 

Lilli Pilli link?! The walk was as crazy as the name itself

 

With stealthy footsteps we started walking...
 
 
Randomness
 


A hide out point, I just loved sitting and relaxing in this cool cave

 

A lovely stream sneaking out from the rocks
 
I heard something...Rats or rattle snakes, I have no clue!
 
The cracks and gaps that made our journey mysteriously wonderful

 
 
Steep stairs
 
Not so steep stairs ;)
 

A great view when we neared the end of the walkway

 

Mary o Mary! :)
 
Breathtaking

 

That exciting moment when you know you are going to ride on this very thing!!
 
 

Excitement reaches its peak

 

It turns into nervousness
 
Nail biting moments
 

Stomach full of butterflies
 
And there you go! We hopped in, a picture taken from inside the cable car
 
 
After a splendid ride above the mountains, we reached here
 

Some good music and peace for refreshments
 
 

 A view from inside the shades
 
 

The Rail journey begins... chikku bukku :)
 
Partners in fun

 

Funicular railway - The steepest I have ever seen

 
It was quite scary from here

 
 
Walking back after the thrilling rail adventure

 



In search of that perfect view

 

No, not this, a better one perhaps?

 
This is it!!!

 
The perfect view of the Blue Mountains paradise

 
 

Thank you for this experience, Sydney! 
 
 
So Long,
Ever Yours

'Yo-Yo' Tribe - A Meme

OK. Time for some fun, folks! Walk down the streets of any city, you are sure to find weirdos of all kinds. I am not being judgmental here, but trust me, there are a bunch of people who think of themselves as the coolest tribe on earth and the cool-ness is defined by their hair-dos and hair styles.  Let me give you some examples here...

Beginning the meme with a Zen-like look. I should admit that this look is more 'yogic' than weird. But only until he doesn't untie that bun on top! I name them the Zen tribe! :D
This style screams attention; attention from railroad signals to be specific. There are so many parallel tracks for trains to ply! The Awesome Railroad Tribe!

Well, well, I only get to see between my strands of hair and this is called 'Looking- through-the-hair-look'. "Are you smiling? winking? blushing? I don't have a clue!"




"Fine, I am growing a pine forest in my head and yes, it is fall time and some trees are starting to change color. I be…

Optimum behavior of a productive techie

How to optimize your behavior to become a productive techie?
No emails, no trouble – If you don’t listen to my advice you will end up being buried under a billion emails, most of them unread by the end of this year. Emails are infectious. The biggest hindrance to a techie’s productivity, is emails. As long as you can stick to messages confined to the subject area like the one below, it is fine. But do not go beyond that and don’t you touch the body! Get independence from your emails, be a loud and shameless conversationalist. Be a caveman, do not ping, do not email, just go talk to the person next to you.

Walk like quick-silver – Fly, Fly to the restroom and back, Fly to the printer and back, Just fly, never walk. Redefine god speed and make time for C++.
Do not carry a bag – One of the most important rules. Never carry a bag/ purse/ lunch bag to work. There are hawks in the workplace who monitor you meaningl…

[Home and Decor] :: Ideas for a perfect home

I have long been envisioning a place which is soulful and dreamy; a place that would like to call home.The essentials of my idea of a perfect home are:
Family and friends – They are the soulfulness and the life of every home. They are indeed those elements that make a ‘house’ a ‘sweet home’. Can’t do without’em!
Space – I am stuck with this space conundrum every time I enter an under-construction building. There seems to be a gap here. There were homes in earlier days which advocated spatial freedom and now everyone seem to look for compact homes. Think about living in concrete boxes?! I understand the money-factor involved but some with enough and more are unwilling to go for a spacious place too. The heritage houses of south India are perfect examples of space management when it comes to homes.
Sunlight - Who wants to live in a cave or a scary house?! In Vasthu Shastra and Feng Shui, we would notice a simple yet striking similarity which encompasses the need for sunlight to flow throu…
