New beginnings

Term 2 ended in a fairly happy way for me academically, as I did relatively well in the end-term exams.
The new term starts tomorrow, 3rd January. This is the last term of the first year. The whole course has gone off so quickly that it is difficult to realize that another rapid 3 months later, 'PGP-I' would be over.

I spent this term break on a semi-religious, semi-historical trip to Varanasi, Allahabad, Sarnath, Chitrakoot and good old Lucknow, with my parents, who had come visiting. It was a very enjoyable time. A detailed account of the trip would appear on this blog in parts over the next few days, while it is still fresh in my mind.

Hi Tadatmya,

A very happy new year to you too! You would certainly be looking forward to your summer internship and placements towards the end of the year 2005.

On blogging- one of the great positives of blogging(esp. personal blogging) is that it is a lot more interactive. It is more like making telephone calls to friends than just writing a personal diary.

Do convey my regards to Masa, Masi and Dadi. Your trip must have been fun. Will be waiting for the details.

It must have been a refreshing change to have toured the places that had wonderful background of history, culture and religion. In our country these along with our philosophy have blended in a fascinating way. In the west, philosophy came from Greece while religion originated in Rome.

When you visit such places, you feel to have been transported in a time-machine to a place and time belonging to past. You realise the sense of history, you feel history as if you are a part of it. Read Chandrakant Baxi's JATAKKATHA for some interesting references to this experience.

And the best part of the experience gained by travel, I can say from personal experience, is it not only enriches the knowledge with understanding that cannot be gained from simply reading, it broadens the visions and shatters many of our long held beliefs and prejudices. It gives you a new angle to look at things.
