What actually happened that day?

A month back after the convocation I with my college friends went to Mc loedganj. We were normal tourist, hanging around laughing, eating and shopping but then something happened near the Mc Loedganj’s famous water fall. Two of us decided to climb.

Today, I found a recording in my mobile. This complete article is parts of the discussion of those two guys which were recorded.

… … …

Life is adventure.

..

White Water River Rafting is more dangerous and exciting adventure sport than mountain climbing. Its boring.

..

Lets get to the top. I see a snow mountain behind this one. Lets goal is touch the snow whatever it takes.

..

I think its pretty steep now. We should stop.

..

Lets take baby step and keep moving.

..

I cant find something to hold, to push myself up.

..

Mountains are rough, you definitely would. Keep looking around yourself.

..

I think we are stuck. Its no more fun or game, it’s serious. I think if we don’t figure out something soon we are going to die.

..

Ok, I got mobile signals. Should I call? But whom and what should I tell them? Where am I? All mountains look pretty much same. Lemme see if I can make the GPS work. Damn! Signals gone again.

..

My legs are shivering. I can stand no more on one leg. We must call support.

..

I hope we don’t see any wild animals in this jungle.

..

I am feeling thirsty. There is no water but snow all around.

..

Wtf! I found a crushed beer can. Takes a lot of courage to drink it such a height on so steep mountain.

..

I can see someone sitting at the top of hill nearby. Lets keep climbing.

..

There is so much snow here. I dint imagine to find so much at the starting point.

..

I am feeling thirsty. I would die right now if I don’t drink. Lets eat snow.

..

Its paining. I feel like tonsils and more thirst. I cant eat snow anymore.

..

Wow, this scene is amaing. This is heaven. It was worth risking life.

..

I found an empty rum bottle. Let’s put some snow in it and wait till it melts.

..

Hurry up, it’s already 4pm. We must find a way down. it gets dark, its gets cold we gonna die.

..

The only thing we can do is go down, whatever direction but fast; must be life there for sure.

..

This is too steep. I would fall, lets find some other way.

..

We must risk our life trying down than dying staying here.

..

We have reached a dead end. It’s a dry fall here.

..

We must go down the fall then, its rocky, with some jumps and tree support a way down can be made.

..

Let’s be fast. It’s going to be dark in an hour.

..

I fell over a thorn tree. Help!

..

I slipped. My right foot is hurting.

..

Damn! I am hanging between two rocks. Pull me up before I get slip.

..

Switch off your phone, I keep mine on. We must save battery. Lights dim, no ringtone.

..

It has been hours we are going down, but foothills and life still is so far.

..

Hey, I see a stone house at top of that hill.

..

Lets climb there then.

..

Hey I see two cows. There must be water here.

..

Looks like bare devils show haan? lol

..

Damn! This is just a thin stream of water with all algae.

..

Lol this all the option we have. Die or drink.

..

Lets see what we have in that house. Its all insects and flies.

..

I found a crush bottle. Its full of dust. Looks shit. Can you make a bottle of that?

..

I am not gonna drink in that. Its f**kin shit.

..

I tried washing the bottle, I cannot clean the lower parts.

..

Wtf! The bottle is broken. Why the heck did they crush it. Damn! What now?

..

Lets make a cup out it, and drink asap before water fells off.

..

Water taste like hell. I am gonna get sick.

..

Better get typhoid than death lol

..

I see a small temple at the top. Lets go.

..

Again, nothing here

..

Wait I see a stony path made here.. Its taking somewhere.

..

Lets go

..

I am tired of walking. This is not ending.

..

I found a old lady. We are saved. I see life.

..

We need water.

..

Where are we?

..

She don’t understand English or Hindi.

..

Can you speak himachli?

..

There is a tubewell. We can drink from there.

..

There is just 8 houses here. Weird Village.

..

She says Mc LoedGanj and Dharamshala is far far away from here. But there is a way.

..

Great! Let’s move then.

..

This is a dead end. Are you sure this is path she told?

..

I see another village down there but now way. I think we need to slide.

..

I am not gonna slide. I slip I die.

..

You don’t you remain here. This is the only way down. No Meru cabs you see 😀

..

Where now? Lets ask somebody in the village?

..

Awesome! She speaks Punjabi.

..

Aww staircases. Sounds easy.

..

How long are these staircases, we have already more than 10,000 steps I guess.

..

Ok, this is a T point. I can see Dharamshala Groud on left and Mc LoedGanj on right J

..

Lets go to Dharamshala. There is a Volvo around 8.30pm to Delhi.

..

This path is broken. There is place for just a foot. You slip you fall into river.

..

Lets not take risk and find a different way.

..

I cannot find another way. Lets go back there and try.

..

Ok you go first, I wanna watch you dying.

..

Wtf you did it. Now my turn? L Please save me if I fell down.

..

As if I can. So what is more adventurous? Rafting? Or Climbing?

..

I am gonna write this in my next Roadies audition.

..

We are walking for so long. How far?

..

A lil more 😀

..

Lets click some photos near the river.

..

Lets go we are late.

..

Finally we found some real road and cars. This is district Dharamshala.

..

I see a tibetain school.

..

Lets drink some coke.

..

I can eat or drink. Its paining badly around my throat.

..

I see a bus. Lets catch it. Must be going to Dharamshala Bus Stand.

..

Did you guys feel down somewhere?

..

Ha ha wtf.. It’s a long story. We are coming from the top of that mountain lol

..

Lets eat thukpa.

..

I am feeling cold. I am gonna buy a sweater from Adidas.

..

Lets finish all before the bus depart. And buy a pair of socks. You smell like crap.

..

Tired! The first thing I am gonna do in the bus is sleep no soon the gates open.

..

Wow! I have a office tomorrow at 7 ha ha. GoodNight!

Sachin Tendulkar’s First Interview

Tendulkar is the first player to score fifty centuries in all international cricket combined, he now has 94 centuries in international cricket. On 17 October 2008, when he surpassed Brian Lara‘s record for the most runs scored in Test Cricket, he also became the first batsman to score 12,000 runs in that form of the game, having also been the third batsman and first Indian to pass 11,000 runs in Test cricket. He was also the first player to score 10,000 runs in one-day internationals, and also the first player to cross every subsequent 1000-run mark that has been crossed in ODI cricket history and 200 runs in a one-day international match. In the fourth Test of the Border-Gavaskar Trophy against Australia, Tendulkar surpassed Australia’s Allan Border to become the player to cross the 50-run mark the most number of times in Test cricket history, and also the second ever player to score 10 Test centuries against Australia, after only Sir Jack Hobbs of England more than 70 years previously. Tendulkar passed 30,000 runs in international cricket on 20 November 2009, and has been honoured with the Padma Vibhushan award, India’s second highest civilian award, and the Rajiv Gandhi Khel Ratna award, India’s highest sporting honor. Tendulkar became the first sportsperson and the first personality without an aviation background to be awarded the honorary rank of Group Captain by the Indian Air Force. He won the 2010 Sir Garfield Sobers Trophy for cricketer of the year at the ICC awards.

5 Steps to a flat tummy in 7 days

Missing your routine at the gym very often?

Have a wedding to attend next weekend? 

Have a big embarrassing tummy like me?

Chill, Well, you still have a last option. While you cannot reduce fat, you can losebelly fat by decreasing your total body fat percentage. And you don’t have to completely alter your daily habits to get a flat stomach within 7 days!

Step one:

If you want to build muscle and burn fat at the same time, you have to perform circuit training, three days per week. How can you achieve this? Indulge in full body exercises like lunges, push-ups, and pull-ups, for one set of 15 repetitions. Don’t forget to follow every exercise with one minute of jumping rope. You should be able to burn around 500 to 600 calories per workout.

Step two:

You have to work on your abdominal muscles three times in the week. Crunches and leg raises for three sets of 20 repetitions should be done. Also, do planks by holding your body in a push-up position on your elbows for 30 to 60 seconds for four sets.

Step three:

The kind of food you will eat in this period is vital in bringing about any change. Natural foods like fruits, vegetables, whole grain breads and pastas, chicken, beef, fish and low fat dairy should replace processed foods full of sugar.

Step four:

To minimize water retention, lower your sodium intake. This means you need to avoid salt. You can flavour your food with other herbs and spices instead.

Step five:

Stressing and anxiety can cause the over-production of a certain hormone called cortisol, which encourages weight gain about the belly area. So try to keep your cool!

Would Moneyball win Oscar this year?

Trailer:

I’m just a little girl lost in the moment
I’m so scared but I don’t show it
I can’t figure it out, it’s bringing me down
I know I’ve got to let it go and just enjoy the show
Just enjoy the show, just enjoy the show

– The last lines of the movie

Brief Review:

7.7 rated on IMDB, 94% fresh (Rotten Tomatoes) with 1,251,544 viewers of just the trailer on Youtube, featured at the 2011 Toronto International Film Festival Moneyball  a biographical sports drama film is an account of the Oakland Athletics baseball team’s 2002 season and their general manager Billy Beane‘s (the guy who rejected 12.5M offer)  under whose able guidance A’s Team won 20 consecutive games, an American League record.

This film having Brad Pitt as Beane shows how for the first time in history of Baseball player selection and rejection was done on the basis of mathematics and a scientific approach. It also show how this overcomes the struggle of defeating rich clubs/teams which could buy any player so easily. The good thing about the movie it has perfect balance of baseball and other story for non base lovers to like the movie equally.

The movie is inspirational and positive and worth watching for people who dare to dream. Its not just about winning sometimes but enjoying the every moment of the process.
