Currently Reading: Chasing Rainbows in Chennai: The Madras Diaries – Traveller Tales from India . It’s a nice little book that I’m taking along with me for the trek. Would come in handy during the breaks. I’ve off late gotten pretty interested in reading more about Chennai.
I’m going trekking in Tada, a wonderful hilly forest area at the border between Tamilnadu & Andra. It’s even got a waterfall and hopefully should be in full flow due to the rains. We’ll be camping overnight. It’s been ages since I went on a full fledged ‘rough-it-out’ kinda trek and am looking forward to the adventure.
Awarded : The Indian chapter of STC (Society for Technical Communicators) has won the prestigious Chapter of Excellence award. This award will be presented on May 9 at the Leadership Day session of the 51st Annual STC Conference in Baltimore, USA.
As the representative of the Chennai chapter, I have an inside view of the Indian chapter and am particularly proud of the kind of professionalism and leadership that exists. Its great to be part of such an excellent team.
Chennai is experiencing one of the best rains in recent months. Its such a welcome relief. Rains usually means inconvenience to the city life but I’m yet to find someone who cribs about it. Such is the want for water here.
As for me, I’m glad I don’t have to water my terrace garden for a week 🙂
Treadathalon : The achievement of these two guys really amaze me They ran close to SIX marathons ( 247 kms) on a treadmill for 24 hours… Continuously!! Suddenly, it makes my quest to train for a full marathon seem measly !!
