This blog as might be apparent from the title has to do with running, biking and basically other outdoor individualistic sports, sometimes extreme, such as rock climbing . But don't be surprised if you find articles on work, personal life, music and even philosophy, this blog is an exception in this aspect in the blogosphere of running blogs and I am trying to revamp the blog to make it more runner friendly. You might want to look at the sidebar titled 'categorised', which as is obvious, categorizes my posts into different areas of interest.
The other thing that might interest many people is a section on 'running videos' and 'general videos' on the side bar, which I keep updating now and then.
I plan to bring in more posts on running and biking, with some added colour, so as to make them 'complete'. That's about it for now.
As a post-note, I have run a half-marathon, but I am yet to attempt a marathon, which through some concerted effort and time should happen in the future, but that ofcourse is not the culmination of this blog, it would on the contrary be something to jumpstart this blog onto new vistas.

Carnatic music rocks!!!

My tryst with carnatic music has had an early beginning. My grandma would listen frequently to the songs by M.S. Subbalaksmi and the music slowly grew on me. Carnatic music is such a genre, where liking it initially is the tough part, but once you start liking it, you fall in love with it. Mandolin Srinivas's instrumental music cast a spell on me one day while I was studying in 11th with the music playing in the background. After coming here, I have been able to appreciate other instrumentals like violin(T.N. Krishnan), saarangi(Sultan Khan) , Vichitra veena, etc..but Mandolin still remains my favourite and I plan to learn the instrument one day.
