WPC: Achievement

For this week’s photography challenge: Achievement

a) Doing my first river rafting in Kolad, Pune during a recent week long vacation. I just loved it (and guess what I got into the water , of course with the life jacket and all after so much fuss and enjoyed it too, even though I sprained my neck trying to keep my head above the water)


b) During my Spain trip this year, I finally got around my fear of going on my own (an after effect of my last year’s injuries) to the 34th level of the Seville Cathedral (without stairs and without physical and emotional support) and loved the view from there. I almost gave up after 20th level, but then decided to get going and get it done. For me that was really an achievement.


c) And finally got the first photo book of  my 2013 European tour printed. I had wanted to get one done for a long time, but this year I did it and was so happy to receive it.


SoCS: On an average

  1.  As I had already mentioned, I am currently reading A Song Of Ice and Fire Series (aka Game of Thrones Series) by George R R Martin. Currently I am on my 2nd book ‘The Clash of Kings’ and have completed almost 60% of it (at least according to the Kindle app if I load the book separately) but I am seeing no end to it, because my friends gifted me a 5-in-1 e-book and that takes an awful lot of time to add that 1% in my Kindle 😦 and this is in-spite of me doing an average of 100 page a day.    Do you think, if I ask, my manager will allow me a sabbatical to complete this series ?
  2. I always wanted to be a little taller than I am now and my friend’s tell me that I am a little greedy there because I am quite well above the average height of women in India. I thought they were just bluffing but seems like I am, according to this data . I am little above 5 ft 5 in. But still I wish I was 5 ft 8 in. I will almost be that close to my brother’s height (I hate that he grew up to 6 ft when he was the tiniest one in the family till my under-graduation and I had thought I was invincible!)
  3. Do you believe in the The Law of Averages . Sadly, I do. I don’t think I should be gambling at all (not that I like it), unless I have to win a bet to lose money that is.
  4. Do you know that when we say the word average we always, almost always mean ‘arithmetic mean’. But even median and mode are forms of averages, a fact which statisticians and finance people tend to take advantage of sometimes (or rather most of the times).
  5. On an average, how many blogs/posts do you read per day ? I read an average of 25 posts on a weekday and that doubles up during the weekends if I am at home.
