So Digging up my photo albums of the various trips, I have sent in my 3 best clicks with a backstory consisting of a simple Chai behind it.

1. A game on foots
During a monastery visit of my Sikkim Trip, while enjoying a cup of Tea across the lawn, I saw bunch of young monks playing with a cloth ball . smiling all along they spoke less but enjoyed more a moment for this click and a moment to enjoy with a Tea. after a while we joined along too for few minutes.

2. A routine during long journeys
Every long distance journey has 3 things in common for me, A camera, a good book and a cup of Chai. This was taken during my Chandigarh trip, the early morning cold weather carries a different experience for tea along with giving me a foggy view outside but cool pic for the cam. I so feel sorry for the Non-Tea drinkers, They would never know what they miss.

3. Even Trees follow a queue
During one of the breaks for tea, had this beautiful tea garden across the road on view, where these trees were grown in a straight line as if they are following a queue.

Vijender wins his 7th bout becomes first Indian to lift WBO title.

In the biggest match of his Professional Boxing career, Vijender Singh came up with his seventh victory to lift the WBO Asia Pacific Super Middleweight title in the process becoming the first Indian to do so. It is for the first time that Vijender had to fight till the 10th round, as all his previous 6 victory has finished with a knockout inside 5-6 rounds, highlighting the fact that his opponent Kerry Hope this time gave him run for his money. And score line suggested the same 98-92 98-92 100-90

Singh Vs Hope
This historic match had enough fire power in the audience with around 10,000 people in the stadium rooting and shouting for every move Vijender did, even if he missed his blows or dodged some the crowd didn't stop. Among the audiences were B-town celebrities, Politicians, Cricketers
With the huge expectations and pressure around him Vijender started strongly putting up a good even fight and took charge in the final couple of rounds trying to come up with that one decisive blow to settle the game. In the end it was blows traded through the ten rounds that mattered and by the unanimous judges decision, Vijender won.
Knockout Ka King had to run for his money this time.
This is definitely the best answer he could have given to his critics who had once questioned his decision to join Professional boxing. The ones who had questioned his dedication for his country may have got their answers too, when after the match he said, "Thank you India, Thank you so much, It is all about the nation, our country, finally we did it."
"Kerry fought really well," added Vijender - the new WBO Asia Pacific Super Middleweight champion.
He was supposed to be the Boxing Icon of India, the one who would revolutionize the game in this cricket crazy nation. Well with today's game he has surely ignited some spark among some budding boxers in our country.

Momondo The DNA journey- A youtube video that takes your DNA to a surprise ride

About a Month back Momondo a travel site came up with a beautiful video, where a group of people from different backgrounds like race, countries, etc. were brought together for a DNA test. The video starts with people giving their opinions about what they feel about others or themselves and then asking them to take a DNA test. The result of the test constitute the second part, which has some shocking revelations and moments of the participants about how and what they feel after learning a part about themselves from the DNA result. This video through the magic of DNA testing is a commendable effort to prove the world that we are more alike than different.

The DNA Journey

 A must watch video with a message that's sure to at least make you start thinking about it. Although the video from the travel site Momondo is trying to portray a message, there are reports that have questioned the authenticity of video with scientist claiming that there is no Standard to say a persons blood is 100% Indian or Danish or American, so how can you come up with percentages. Also some of the reports say that the people involved as participants in the video are actually bunch of actors.
So whether they are fake reactions or scripted, is that the question to be asked?
So it could all be fake, just acting, the reports done by the Travel site for its vested Interests. But is that the point that we are suppose to take from this video, the question we are supposed to ask. No! In the world filled with violence's all over and blame games actively running with it, the moment of realization is what could make us understand that we are all same. A moment to think that, Its the same red blood and that we are supposed to live like humans and not any Jew or Christian, Hindu or Muslim, they are religions meant to improve the meaning of our life, not destroy it.
Its your decision to join or not. But Understand the question it gives
Around 20 years back, Krantiveer was released with Nana patekar as the protagonists giving few of the best Dialogue performances ever on silver screen. One such moment includes him questioning a riot stricken person about his integrity, asking him the difference between bloods to describe religion. It had the similar message, about similar we are, and how we get triggered to fight one another because of few unwanted elements of society. watch it and relive the moment of the videos. And take a moment to think about it.
