Day 3 - Rishikesh

The weather looked gloomy with an overcast sky as we woke up. We had breakfast at the hotel and decided to visit Rishikesh today. Again we headed back the way we came yesterday and after crossing Rajaji National Park the road divides and one goes towards to Dehradun and one to Rishikesh. The drive was pleasant, as we opted Laxman  Jhula as our destination google map smartly took us via highway bypassing the main city.But at the end the roads started to get narrower lucky for us we found a parking lot packed yet as we early risers ;)
The weather was little cold compared to the planes of Dehradun with lots of breeze coming from Ganga. We walked to Laxman Jhula to cross it. Oh boy! We have no idea what local authority allows two-wheelers, cycle to cross the hanging bridge which is meant for a pedestrian. And top of it you even have some cows standing in the middle.

Changing face of India

“India is changing” I am sure this is not a new topic to talk about. But there are few things which got changed in India which my RADAR didn’t notice before.

But you meet them after few years the changes become more noticeable to our eyes.This time, while passing in front of AIMS, Delhi I could not believe my eyes the whole place changed for good the landscape is now full of flyovers. Well, Delhi being the drawing room of India always gets special attentions. I personally do not like flyovers, as they disfigure the beauty. Parisian approach of building underpass is better to me. But building those may be more costlier and without proper planning it might be a nig…

Tujh bin….

Oof !!!! getting mad you know.Its been a while Santanu is trying his best to make it work but alas no response,no sound... nothing.Tried his best as much as he could, took it on his lap, dismantle one of those computer geeks trying to fix that damn thing but god............everything gone in vain.The connections & all those seems to be fine except that fan which was rotating in such a speed making hell lot of noise.You know its almost dead....The CPU was showing 116° C. He did contact INTEL support and the response from them was since he is not using the CPU fan provided by them for cooling he had broken warranty. But according to the Shuttle their system is Intel Certified so I am supposed to use the ICE (Integrated Cooling Engine) for cooling the CPU and system. He posted the same on Sudhian but it seems like that did not raised many eye-brow. And he found this too mean for any mini PC or hardware support with big name.Anywayz, thinking that he might have to b…
