Monsoon motorcycle ride with my Avenger to Kochi

Rain & Mundu are tricky customers on a motorcycle ride.

Two days after this ride, I decided to check the maximum kilometers I can drive this Bajaj Avenger 220 Street Motorcycle. The decision was quick because I wanted to attend one event at Infopark, Kakkanad, Kochi the next day. I chose to do the trip without any gear such as windcheater etc. and certainly , no mundu. The total two and fro travel distance is 262 kms and that will be driven on a single day.

The Route

Nooranad ---> Charumood ---> Chengannur ---> Tiruvalla ---> Perumthuruthy ---> Thengana ---> Vakathanam ----> Puthupally (take right) ----> Manarcaudu ----> Ettumanoor ---> Kothanalloor ---> Manjoor ----> Kaduthuruthy ----> Thalayolaparampu ------> Mulanthuruthy -----> Chottanikkara ---> Thiruvankulam ---> Karingachira ---> Irumpanam ---> Infopark

Heavy rains were the biggest hurdle in my journey.Since I started the journey at 2:30 am, i was freezing and when I reached Ettumanoor, my teeth was shivering.I bought a black tea to get rid of the cold.And I rode again.I had to stop at multiple location to deal with the cold temperature.I gave lift to a person who was traveling in the same route.My buttocks was paining heavily on the return trip. Somehow I reached back home. It was a thrilling experience and happy that I was able to set a new daily record. My previous best was a ride from home to Attingal where I had to stop journey, park the vehicle in a pay & park and return back and that was on Bajaj CT100. I used to travel up to Changanassery or Kollam (70 km) and return back on CT100.Upgraded to Avenger to improve the ride quality.But realised that a 70 to 80 km on avenger is a pleasure. Anything more than that gives pain in the buttocks.

I lost my voter id card issued by the election commission of india. I lost it along with the driving license in 2007. I took Duplicate Driving Licence from the same RTO in 2008.Now I have been postponing the efforts to take duplication voters id card due to various reasons. One election came in between and election people were giving duplicates but I didn’t went. Now local body election happens in Kerala. So I got an information that the election department at the Tehsil (Taluk) office is starting to issue duplicate voter id cards from 08.10.2010.So I drove to mavelikkara  yesterterday  in my Astar and it was raining heavily. I reached there and find a long queue of people.Since I have completed the form before hand, I just need to find my card id number and put the data and place in it.A person employed there took my application form and he checked the number of my family member in the kiosk in the same room. The kiosk terminal didn’t showed my number. So he forwarded my application

Generate your online e-aadhaar card easily

Aadhaar Demystified   Aadhaar ,meaning foundation in indian languages, has become a hall of shame  or an object of inconvenience for the common man (aam aadmi). Despite a prominent personality like Mr. Nandan Nilekani at it's helm, India's aadhaar project is an epic fail. UIDAI or unique Identification Authority of India is a ghost body created by the central government.It is yet to get complete legal and constitutional status to discriminate people by providing gas subsidy {LPG subsidy for domestic use} only to aadhaar holders. Why India needed an ID System? India was in the dark about it's own citizen.Infiltration from Bangladesh, Pakistan and Srilanka happens all the time.Politicians provide illegal immigrants (a large chunk are run away criminals and terrorists) with indian election id cards inexhange of votes / money. Some crooks were eating up subsidies designed to reach deserving common man [aam aadmi] by forging fake documents and multiple accounts.
