Glimpse of Mumbai Marathon : 17th Jan 2010


Hi All,

Just a glimpse of Mumbai Marathon...From Sightsavers 12 people participated in Dream Run Category ( 6 kms) with one lucky draw entry on the final day...

Any guess...Here is a clue, this die hard marathon fan got the bib at the ninth our at VT station, though he had come to cheer us up...for answer scan the last snap...
This is the starting point (holding area) for the race. Good times partner Kingfisher organized fancy dress competition. The issue of "climate change" received the first prize.

Fund raising event amidst the race (for village schools)


Throughout the route, there were live bands playing fantabalous music to refresh the runners. Towards the ending point, Radio Mirchi jockey was giving live updates.


Sightsavers team meeting with cheer leaders...Shrinivas, Siddhant (Little Shrinivas Ji), Jerome (extreme left, John's son) and Sheryn (extreme right, John's Daughter).

Wondering where is Emily, Ketan, Bhavana and Vasant...then don't miss to check MEC blog tomorrow.

BTW the lucky runner was Sabitra :)

Welcome to 302

My blog had been long awaited...and it was delayed more so because I wasn't able to find a name even after updating status messages on gtalk and facebook. Now when people are tweeting on every breath, I am coming up with blog. What a shame !

Nevertheless it's better than reading a tweet while you are in loo to know what "Shahrukh khan is boarding a plane" !

Atlast, thought of this name, inspired by The Kumars at No. 42. Though, it's not as dramatic as Kumars but No. 302 holds a special place in my life.

As it's our flat number after marriage.

So this blog is dedicated to my loved companions in 302. My TV, kitchen and mirror respectively, in reverse order! 

Places where I can be found working after office hours. 

The picture was taken during Strawberry Festival,
Feb 2008. Mahabaleshwar/Panchgani. 
Must go event.

Launched in 2010, but woke up to the aroma of motherhood over a cuppa coffee in 2013.

Here, you can read about the forgotten quintessential pleasures which a middle class Indian from small town is addicted to and runs the marathon all his life for...

TV, Biwi, Baal Bachche, Makan, Chai, Naukari, Boss, Promotion, Teej Tyohar, Bachchon ko settle karna, Shadi Byaah ka Mamla, Markiiting, Relatives, Movie Talkies, Padosi, Restorants, Bachat, Dost, Chaar Log Kya Kahenge etc. etc.

Clearly, about everybody else but themselves.

Happy Reading !
