One of the first rains of Mangalore Mar. 22nd, 2008 @ 03:07 pm

Rains this time of the year is totally unseasonal. And yet very welcome indeed. We are not going to have a water problem this summer:-) You will hear thunder at 00:50, I saw the lightning that created it, BUT missed shooting it. This was shot on Thursday 20th.

Mangalore temperatures Dec. 27th, 2007 @ 09:31 am
The last two days min temperatures for Mangalore was 18°C. It will not get any lower than this.

So what do you think the max temperature was?


Mangalore new roads Dec. 22nd, 2007 @ 11:51 am

We Mangloreans always crib about our roads (bad conditions of) but we do have good smooth concrete roads and more roads are having they surfaced relaid with concrete or concretised as the press puts it. And so I was present one night when they were just starting to lay the stretch from Jyothi Circle to Balmatta Circle. The entire road has been dug up and prepared, and one layer of concrete has already been laid. This is the second and last layer.

I was there since my pal had invited us over for dinner at Palkhi. Our wives had gone across to their apartment to pick something up. Me and my friend hopped over here to check it out. That steel structure is the one that makes the surface super smooth. Older concrete roads here were not laid that way and were always rough.

In the video the voice you hear initially is me telling my friend that "this will be posted on YouTube" :-)

I thought I take a video of the rains, so for those of you stranded in a desert and are from Mangalore and such other place where it rains all the time, this video is to bring a flood of nostalgia to you.

A drive in rain on the route I take back from office. There is no danger to me or others, since I have made a seat out of a sheet of sponge for my mobile. It is placed on the dash and you get to see what I see.
