  • have to watch some shady vandam movie - was so bollywoodish

Mumbai Marathon!! & Bombay in general

* This weekend I went to Mumbai for the half marathon. Finished the marathon in a pathetic 3 hours 5 mins. which works to arounds 7 kmph. slightly faster than brisk walk :). It was slower pace for me than midnight marathon at banglore - so I did bad. have decided to finsh the next in under 2:30 hours.. so thats a goal .. start training this week itself. BTW shantanu did pretty neat and was able to finish off in under 2hours 15 minutes - sweet ..

* It was nice marathon - the route was pretty scenic. lots of it was alongside sea-shore (marine drive, hajji ali) - nice views; and thru some residential areas - seeing so many aam junta - uncle,aunties, moms, dads, kids was amazing.. And the runners - there were so many of them .. many 10 thousands in the half marathon, was pleasantly surprised at the numbers. saw anil ambani, tinisha, milind - the glamor factor was there.

* Liked bombay as a place in general . Traffic (on saturday/sunday) was better than bangalore. The worli sea front was nice. On to the next thing - The scale of money is amazing. It definitely has widened/increased my horizons on how and how much to earn. Met aman - my schoolhood friend, and got a good understanding of ad business and mumbai life in general. The people spoke hindi. There were porshe and rolls royce showrooms (did I spell them right - dont worry I would in some time for sure!). local trains were bad though :)..

psuedo intelluctuals rathi & shantanu

* somehow book reading bug has caught on to these guys, and they have become boring now .. rathi is reading some shitty puzo/cuzo novel ,and shantanu is reading some - veronica decides to die..

* On this note, I usually find books boring - unless they are technical in nature.. I am surprised at their slowness, lack of imagination (comparing it with hearsay,movies on them) etc- I tried reading harry potter - got bored in first 2 pages ..

* BTW I am following up on macworld .. lets see what rolls out of the apple bandwagon.. hope something neat/cheap macbook for rajaram :)
