Back in the Saddle after 14 Years : Exploring Lepakshi and Penukonda Fort

My last ride was a long one. Almost 14 years back. In 2010, I rode my Yamaha across the country with friends. Post that motorcycle trip, I stopped riding for some reason and did a lot of driving, including a similarly long epic drive with Anju in 2015. I don’t remember any specific reason not to ride....

Weekly Notes 03/2024

We are back in Bangalore. This drive took a bit longer. We took two 45-minute breaks each for baby and pet-related work. Otherwise, it was a comfortable drive. We left at 3:20 AM and reached by about 1:30 PM. It makes a lot of difference if you start early. It’s primarily long-distance truck traffic early in the morning, and they are much more professional Than others on the road. So it’s much easier to drive alongside them.

Nagarathna Memorial Grant – 2024 Open for Applications

This year, 2024, will be the seventh year of the grant. I am pleased that I was able to sustain it. I am grateful to friends (Nemo, Gangadhar, Shweta) and other anonymous folks who have joined me on this journey with additional grant support. I am also thankful to all the applicants and grantees who have been part of this journey in one way or another. It’s one of those things I do every year that makes me very happy.
