A thing of beauty is joy for ever! Mumbai Marathon

The sheer intensity of the Mumbai Marathon can only be experienced while watching and cheering beside the road. Its the first time I realised its importance, perhaps its unique concept and presence of many of the celebs.

Catch up the train at Seewood station arround 6.50 am , Ajit who was waiting at Sanpada station joined me after 15 mins. A news from Jitu makes our journey more talkable. Jayan became a father now with a girl child! Jayan, working as the Creative director of IDG Groups of Company in Banglore! , is now in Kerela at this occasion. I tried to wish Jayan but his mobile is unreachable, so me and Ajit thought to wish him later in the evening.

At 7.55 both of us reach VT station and had Vegetable Patis. When the announcment of Rani Mukherji and Abhishek Bachan aired ....everyone down the streets started looking to the stage and waved there hands to greet them. A whistel, and the Marathon starts. Perhaps one can think of mumbai as a city without any feeling, but the opposite side of its peoples, its local trains and the all time busy culture makes its allways a happening place to watch and enjoy!

Here are some of the snaps that I captured !

Double Yield from SRI Paddy Cultivation Technique

Here is my First Experience with the SRI (System of Rice Intensification) technique in Paddy Cultivation. From Documenting most of its growth through out last 3 months is amazingly feel good for me. 
In August we used single grain to transplant in a distance of 12 inches (though recommended 10 inches apart). In the Traditional cultivation the Distance is just 3-4 inches between the seedlings of Paddy while rowing. -see Picture below(left). The Results were astonishing , as for each single grain Produced an average of  900+ grains and that too without the use of any Chemical spray, fertilizer and insecticide. (Only Cow Dung Manure applied Prior to Rowing the Paddy ).  YES THAT'S IT !!
Again the Best Part is This year is without Rains and Water scarcity is all the way. Still the After Effects of SRI Technique Works brilliant .. Check out the Image Below: 
NOTE: The Real Assessment- Result will be done after Harvesting finally in next 20 -25 days.
