Nothing beats a brisk 26.2 miles run through LONDON




22nd April, 2007, a sunny day here in london & i joined the street party called London Marathon with 36000 enthusiatic runners.
Iwoke up quite late and thought i just missed it, switched on the TV and realized that i was not too late, because the general marathon started at 9.45 AM, so i came out, and few yards away from my flat, saw the road was bustling with activity.

i roamed around on the marathon track from west ferry road to cross harbour to canary wharf and click some pics. Check them out...

300 - An Epic and Awesome Experience..


Saturday, 24th March 2007, London.
a not so special, boring weekend, with gloomy weather here in london, it was getting quite tough to pass time.... i had done swimming, my favorite exercise these days... had chatted with surabhi and after she went to sleep (time difference in india and UK sucks big time..) i started browsing TV channels, was looking for a good movie in Film 4, and they aired a trailer of movie 300.
i had seen an add in a newspaper yesterday and movie looked promising.
few hours back when i was chatting with Sharma (honourable movie guru), he also vouched that movie is worth watching....


Took DLR from island garden to West india quay, this is the closest place for us to watch movies..

300 is a ferocious retelling of the ancient battle of Thermopylae in which king leonidas and 300 spartans fought to the death against Xerxes and his massive persian army.
Movie is based on a graphic novel by Frank Miller, directed by Zack Snyder and Gerard Butler is king leonidas.

Have a look at the website and u might feel the pull....
