Trip to Diu and Daman

Now I am going to explain a part of it in which I went to Diu and Daman (Union Territory) with my cousins. It was an amazing place, but the time we went is not suitable for that spot. Actually it is a place which is to be visited during Rainy Season. It took around four hours to reach from Mumbai to Silvassa.

Silvassa is the capital of Diu and Daman. We reached Silvassa around 10:00 in the morning. First we thought of going to Lion Safari. I was so excited that we are going for a Lion Safari. But after going there only I came to know that it is not a lion safari. After going there I was surprised because it was only one lion in the park. I thought it would be boring even for the remaining part also. But my calculations went wrong.

After the lion safari we planned to visit the Damanganga dam . The way which led to the reservoir was amazing. It was a ghat road with lots of greenery. In the midway we stopped to have some pics with my cousins. One of my fav pics taken there was with my sister and brother (small kids). I got enough comments for that particular pic. 😛 After reaching there we thought of going for boating which was through the reservoir. We went all the way from one end of the reservoir to the other end of the reservoir. The place was truly amazing. It took around one hour to come back. In the mean while we had some snaps also. But one thing we missed is the Tarpa Festival.

After that we thought of going to the deer park. After a long waiting for around two hours we got our turn finally to go and visit some deer’s. The deer park was truly awesome. It was a safari of about 20 min. All the way through the way we travelled it was full of deer’s only. I was lucky enough to touch a deer which was passing by from our vehicle. But problem is the driver didn’t give enough time to take good pics of the deer’s.  But the time we spent in the deer park was like heaven for me because it was so pleasant and quite there.

That’s how it is done for that day. The next day we decided to spend the whole day in the beach. So we planned to go the Jampar Beach which is located in Daman. The thing is that whole of Silvassa is full of industries and Daman part is like Mumbai with full of tall buildings and apartments. By the time we reached the beach it was around 11:00 in the morning. When we went in the first thing which attracted my mind is paragliding. I’ve decided to do that since I was a person who is interested in adventures. 😀

It was an amazing experience when I was in air for the first time with a parachute on my back. It will be about 200 feet I was from the ground level in the air. I was shouting like hell coz I was so excited. One thing which I was surprised of the beach was the water went back around 500 ft during the morning time. Two more days we had fun covering the places there nearby including Surat. It was one of my best trips till now.

That’s it for my short trip to the Union Territory. 🙂


My Childhood and Teenage Part-2

Hey, I’m back here with the second part. Where did I stop in the part-1? Yeah, came till my 10th class story right? In this part I will tell some of my best adventurous journeys and my Intermediate education.

10th Class summer holidays:

Soon after my 10th public Exams, I traveled  Mumbai alone for the first time. The journey was so exciting because there is no one to stop me in the train from enjoying. That journey is one of the memorable moments in my life. In the starting of the journey I was so scared because at that time I had a fear for trains (accidents and stuff). But the journey was not that boring for me because till PuneI was playing with a small kid from the beginning of the journey. After going to Mumbai the real fun started for me. I used to live in BARC. There I went to water parks and 3D movies and so on. I almost spent one month of my holidays in Mumbai along with my relatives. It is really fun spending time in Mumbai for me because of their kids who always likes to play with me.

Intermediate Education:

As every one knows the intermediate education is one of the crucial stages of education. But for us (people of Andhra Pradesh) it is like spending a year in hell because the system of education is like that there for us. As Amir Khan says in 3 IDIOTS film right, all of them will start revolving round the books to get the first mark always. No one cares for how much time is it we are in the college and what the knowledge they are gaining by studying those subjects. All the time they will be mugging the whole entire study materials which are given. That’s it nothing much they want because all the questions will be given from that material itself only.

There have been a lot of changes in me when compared to my school age when I started my Intermediate Education. I’m no more the old Anup who my friends know me during my school time. Along with all the remaining people I also started to get into the race for the marks. 😛 Some how I managed to get through the examinations and came out as an average student.

I really hate the system in Andhra when it comes to the Intermediate education especially because they will divide the whole student into three categories i.e. Toppers, Average Students and Below-Average students. The administration will take good care of the toppers and the below-avg students and leave the average students all the time. That is one of the reasons why all the average students lag in their studies in Intermediate.

That’s it all about me. Thanks for reading.  🙂
