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.

New pondy

Bombay's been rechristined mumbai, madras - chennai, culcutta - kolkatta and finally bangalore - bangaleru. But wait, is that all? Next in line as proposed and approved by the central cabinet is a new name for pondicherry a.k.a 'new pondicherry name'. Considering that all the other cities have been renamed such that the length of the new names are proportional to those of their former names, I wondered as to what possible new name our good old pondicherry would receive. Pondicherry can be shortened to a neat nick name of 'pondy'. I wondered if the rechristined version of pondicherry could also be as elegantly nicknamed. Horrors of horrors, Puducherry, the new name is way off in our nicknaming scheme of things. But the thing is 'pudu' means new in tam and is sort of consistent with the need for a 'new pondy name'.That is to say the new pondy name is infact 'new pondy'. This is amazing because it reaffirms the fact that the name pondy will never go out of circulation but will sutiably adapt to become a mutated version called the 'new pondy'. Here's to the glory of the never-say-die spirit of pondy.

P.S. :)
