Jitu and Konark Day 1

Konark the beautiful and the mysterious of all the temples in India, A World Heritage site is one that attracts all. People who visit Orissa hardly escape the Temples attraction , weather its the enchanting Stone carving works around the Temple walls or the very Conception of a Big Chariot in the form of a Temple which has taken shape to its reality , amazing the Modern world for its mere architecture and the thought behind it. All this is the same , when Jitu comes this time (this was his third Trip to Konark), for a relaxing time to spent, out of the odd-yet lucrative world of Websites, Search Engine Optimisations and high Earning AdSense dollars.

His Visit was not a Plan as such but a decision made within seconds , while on Chat. Same as he was always , with the decisive action , very fast , hardly giving time to rethink , that's what contributes to His character of To the Time and Ready for Bang and Exclusive Idea Club. Its 10Th of July and He reached at Bhubaneswar Airport after a 2 hours Late Flight of Kingfisher. As I was not at my best on the Legs I took Ranjit, My nephew with me to the Airport and Receive Jitu there. Hey He seems much more fair and little bit Stylish from the Jitu I saw ,in Nov 4th , 2007 at Mumbai Railway Station. While the joy of meeting and exploring every moment comes alive as soon as he started driving My 9 year old 100 cc Bike, The Bajaj BOXER with ease to Cuttack. We reached home and had our Lunch , were Jitu had a little Conversation With my Mother and Chinu. At around 4 pm he somehow managed to make a tough on decision to go right now to Konark, I was reluctant on the thought as, I had planned for the Next day.
Well as in India it was the ATHITHI DEVO BHAWA, Jitu managed that with the DEVO (LORD) situation and in no time I was just behind him , Guzzling out on the Road, heading towards KONARK. Believe me this was one of the best bike travelled Roads , As I knew , to enjoy the Seasons , the Monsoons with a little shower. The Road from BHUBANESWAR - PIPILI - GOP - KONARK is worth experiencing with a Bike. The Lush greenery beside the Road and the cold Temple wind from the vegetation , and the scenic beauty of the Place along the drive and Social Country side, On going labour intensive plantation of Paddy fields, Monsoon Clouds with the grey shadows and thousands of Coconut trees , align like the pillars to the heaven makes the Drive a memorable one. With a small Snacks break at PiPILI we reach Konark at 7.30 pm and Logged at LAVANYA LODGE with booking of 3 days advance. Once the Shed for 3 nights were confirmed we set out for the Konark Area look at Night, Went to Chandrabhaga Beach It was too dark to make out things , but we sit there and enjoyed the Cold breeze with the High Tides smashing to the Shores. Some of the Fisher mans were dwelling there tricks to catch the Sea Crabs and Jitu did asked a fisherman on the tricks. Its 9 pm and We left the beach and set out for the Konark Shop area and while returning had our much awaited Dinner at Panthanivas Resturant. Returned to the Rest House at 11pm and Recharged Jitu's IPhone for next Day.

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.
