Jolly Good Experience – Birdly
17th March 2015
feel like a bird
slicing through the wind
oh o experience over
I recently went to the Swiss consulate (Swissnexx) in Bangalore to try out their virtual simulator called Birdly. My timing was just about perfect since the crowd had just left. I was quite amused and curious when they asked how long back I ate.
The equipment as you can see above has two projections where the arms go. As you guessed by the name and design, this was a simulator to fly like a bird above the San Francisco Skyline. There is a fan to simulate the wind and headphones that give an overall effect.
The experience though a short one was anything like I had before. It was exactly like flying in the air and the flapping of wings and manipulation to turn and swoop exactly like a bird does. I did do a pigeon when I crashed into a building and the simulation ended but they were good enough to start it again 😀
That this was a freebie was an icing on the cake of course. Guess what I did after that? Tweeted of course!! (oh pun totally intended)

splash of salty manna
striking with force
washing away the tears
I love how the waves make a splash every time it meets the rocks. The best place to be is to be on the receiving end of that spray ….

soothing the senses
the violin sings
Taken at a cancer event sponsored by HCG Cancer Hospital, I love how the VIOLIN provides the depth as an accompaniment in a classic Carnatic concert. A fiddle in the hands of a master can really make your senses spiral wildly at the same time leave you at peace with yourself. Different positions of playing gives different sounds which makes it an extremely VERSATILE and the only restriction is in the players’ imagination

for all it is;
a fragile sphere
My better half had bought this bubble maker as a gift to our nephews. Unfortunately it fell into my hands. Oh they did get to enjoy it… finally. Before that I had my own share of fun trying to photograph them from all angles. Here’s my favourite of the shots.

Pyramid Valley for Peace
28th October 2014
midst the chaos
I hear the call of
the mystical pyramid
Pyramid Valley, located on Kanakapura road in Bangalore, Karnataka is one such place where people come to meditate and to de-stress from their chaotic life. It’s a very pleasant experience being there with no noise and seeing people enjoying the surrounding in silence. The Pyramid is this huge structure that can seat an unbelievable number of people inside it. The silence within the pyramid (yeah you cannot talk inside ) is so good, you can almost taste it…. I will also add, it’s not for the faint-hearted
By the way I was almost reminded of The Mummy Returns when I saw it for the first time

Oh My God

seen from the top
man and his accomplishments
Yep that’s the view when I sky dived from 10000 ft. Neat eh !! It sure is a humbling experience to know the materialistic things we hold dear are insignificant when seen from a higher perspective .
