Badami historical background

Guys i am unable to post Golden heritage   for want of its approval by Indiblogger management.  But in the meanwhile i have tried to link the same with historical perspective.  The discovery of Gold in Chalukyan domain  has obviously spurred construction of monuments with a dual objective of establishing the hindu empire in the region and leaving behind a legacy of great builders.  But for the partial destruction of the monuments by the raiding invaders and crass commercialisation the combined territory of  Badami, Aihole and Pattadakal would resembled an empire beyond compare.  Please do take a look at the following link

Two Decades of Togetherness

Basically i was inspired to share my marriage journey by Pramod's Marriage Book.  How to pull off the long journey of two decades of  marriage with my better half  Vasanthi was the key question ?  I thought why not link it to our various trips that we have undertaken right from marriage days on august 23rd ( 1991 )

Indiblogger Meet @ Bangalore Photologue

Guys Indiblogger meet sponsored by Samsung Galaxy TAB750 was a total success considering the number of  new comers into the fold.  Of course there were many veterans too such as Alok, Laxmi Rajan, Mathew, Vijay, Saurav, Rajesh, Karthik, etc.  

 We got to touch and feel the Samsung Tab750 which loaded with features, 8 MP camera output, video output, interface with social media, gaming, and all other features which makes it a gizmo of sorts.  Currently it is priced at Rs 36200/- eventually I hope the price will come down drastically due to volumes and competition I presume.  I would rather prefer an injection currently with my Nokia touch screen phone currently.

 We were emotional when we listened to Raghava who is the only blind blogger in India, who is active with his never say die spirit.  He is live example that handicaps does not matter to keep our date with destiny.  We sincerely wish that he will go miles in achieving his goal in the virtual world, speaking his mind out.

The 49 seconds introduction session was humorous and enthralling with RAJ with four letter blog, Praveen with cyber tech bog, Laxmi Rajan met his wife while blogging, we have a author who is scheduled to publish his books.  One blogger mentioned that he was ditched by his girl friend and he took up to blogging.  It heartening to note many a bloggers are earning their livelihood blogging full time too.  

 We had this collect comments game, which was lapped up with enthusiasm by all newcomers and finally the meet was wound up with discussion.  I suggested that in future all meets should be in some form be live at least in the form of  1 comments from the venue participants, through their cellphone or gadgets, it would involve the entire Indi blogging community virtually if not physically cutting across the barriers of time constraint.
