Honeymoon - Part 1

The first thing that any couple does immediately after their marriage is go for a 'honeymoon'. It is almost 6 months since I am carrying tag of 'husband' but unfortunately could not go out with my wife. I didn't have enough leaves to go for honeymoon after my wedding. So we had decided then that we will have it in parts like Harry Potter movies. So this weekend we went for our first part of Honeymoon.

Saturday morning we left at around 9:00 AM for The Lake Weekend resort. This is the parking area of my building.

The resort is near Varasgaon dam. The route is Sinhagad road - Khadakwasala dam - Panshet - Varasgaon boat club. The picture taken while running besides Khadakwasla dam.

My wife, Meet, trying catch herself in portrait while I was driving my Pulsar 150 towards resort. She is wearing cap that my MBA college gave me when I went there to meet my juniors last year. 

It is a perfect ride on weekend if one loves beautiful scenery and enjoys cool breeze. 

On every tour I encounter kittens but this time I was visited by hundreds of cattle in groups.

There was a great construct on my way to Lake Weekend. The building was inspired by Rajasthan culture.

On our route when we found ourself on a bridge it was a time to take left turn upward towards Varasgaon boat club.

We would have to cross Varsagaon boat club to reach resort. When we moved forward we saw Varasgaon dam and its back water. 

This point onwards the trees on both sides of the road got dense. I already started feeling chilly weather as I was moving forward. But my wife was enjoying the atmosphere sitting behind and talking to me. 

As it had rained the earlier night there was water flowing through and over rocks at regular interval. 

On our way on left hand side we found a big sign board reading 'The Lake Weekend'. The road upward was too steep. Just as we started going up we shot other resorts that are at the lower altitude. This resort is at higher altitude than Lonavala.

After approximately 1 km we saw pavement that goes straight to the resort.

After reaching the resort we were served breakfast and good filter coffee. We rested in the recreation space for some time.

The view for here is really good. 

We then went to our duplex and got freshen up. I liked the bright color curtains of it.

The view from this duplex is simply awesome. It is a very calm place.

We spent some time together in duplex chatting and enjoying with our creativity with camera.

The gallery opens straight in open air and huge water reservoir which looks picturesque. 

We then had our lunch in the same recreation hall. They serve meal there for all the occupants. If you are not on time then they bring meal to your room or duplex.

After having a good amount calories through food then it was time to talk again. This time spreading our legs in mini water world tank. 

In afternoon we had a quick nap. Our nap was quite longer as compared to 3 Idiots' power nap. In the evening before going for coffee at recreation hall we got relaxed at space just outside our duplex.

The resort had many things for occupants to enjoy.

I was enjoying period without buggy phone calls for credit card companies with my wife. 

If you don't believe that I was really enjoying then see this.

Next day morning we strolled the nearby area to explore the natural beauty we were in.

Then we walked within resort talking how nicely they had maintained the place.

And we did have some fun. 

Then again going back to recreation hall we played table tennis and carrom. First time I got exposed to Meet's hidden sport and games talent.

We had our lunch and decided to move for home as clouds had turned black and started sprinkling. So we thought it is wise to leave before it would start pouring. Due to two three batches of quick rain the roads were wet and slippery.

The way back home was cooler. The trees were showing off their great green color. As soon as we were on the main road towards Pune the sky turned blue.

Bride-Groom Selection Spreadsheet

Soon after entering in your mid 20's you will hear a word 'proposal' more often from your parents. In most part of the India the timing for bride/groom searching is decided by the parents for two reasons
Arranged marriages are still very popular hereAs you young boy or girl you will always feel that you too young to get married 
Many a times a final selection will be done based on a gut feeling of your parents and relatives. To base your decision on facts and figures I have created following spreadsheet. I personally think the selection that is going to impact your whole life should be made logically. 
In criteria or attribute column you can add up to 10 things and you can assign weighing factor to it in the adjacent column. Then you should go on replacing Name 1 to 4 with name of girls or boys your are considering as your would be. Now simply give marks to each girl and boy against each factor. The one you have with highest score should be the winner.

Corporate e-Newsletter Initiative – How to go about it?

If you are thinking of starting up a e-newsletter activity at corporate level then below are few tips that might help you in the course. I have divided a newsletter activity in three phases viz. planning, construction and distribution.

Planning phase

1. Attention grabbing name

The name of the newsletter should grab attention of the audience. If your brand is highly recognizable in your business community then only use that name. If that is not the case then use any other name that will represent the aim of your newsletter. For example, if you are starting a newsletter for cloud services then have the name something as ‘Envisioning the Cloud’.

2. Decide your target audience

It is not always possible to have different newsletters for different segments of your market due to budget and resource constraints. In that case you will have to choose your first market segment that you will serve as a pilot campaign. Based on its success you can go on adding segments in current newsletter or sta…
