Theatre Photography Exhibition at Ranga Shankara

As a new initiative, Ranga Shankara has organized an exhibition of photographs to do with the theatre, called “Shootout”, at the venue.

Here’s the poster that explains theatre photography, and talks about the exhibition (sorry, THIS particular theatre photograph could not get rid of the lights!)

Value added ideas

Picked up my copy of the Getit Yellow Pages and found something interesting in it. A handy “magnifier” that did a fair job of making the listing easier on the eye.

As you can see, the magnifier is about the size of a credit card and can slip into your wallet. Rare to see something useful, when all we’re used to is a bookmark.

The-Ware, A-Ware…

How better to relate with IT folks than adding some ‘ware’ to the products, this creative billboard on the way towards IT parks speaks for itself…in trying to connect with the largest health conscious consumer base around!!

The-Ware, A-Ware

The words…and the truth….

We went to Nandi Hills on Sunday for a day of birding. And we came away saddened by the way the day trippers treat such a beautiful spot. Between the law and the enforcement there’s a huge gap.

Here’s the sign:

plastic prohibited...

And here’s the reality (this was JUST next to the sign)

and there's a lot of plastic...nandi hills 251107

Why can’t each of us have some civic sense? It’s one thing to have signs, it’s much more effective if each of us could have pride in our nature spots and want to keep them clean….

For the long distance runner

This is one event you don’t want to miss if you are into running. The Bangalore Ultra will be held at the Native Village at Hessaraghatta, on December 16.

An ultra marathon is a run where the distances covered by the participants are greater than the standard marathon distance of 42.2k. The categories are 78kms, 52kms, 26 kms and the longest is 104 kms. Any ultra also consists of a mix of trail and road running across scenic surroundings. It is a mental test of strength as much as a physical test of endurance. Running an ultra requires months of determination, hard work and training.

This is being organised by the Fuller Life folks and I’ve written about them earlier.

For details on registration etc. do visit the site.

Want to foot a high bill?

Well, you’ve got to give it to them. If they do something, its gotta be done in style and on a scale that says “big” /
“bold” / “splashy” / “ambitious” etc. The Reliance juggernaut is on a roll and there’s no stopping it, come protests or otherwise.

Is Metro Derailed??

Is Metro Derailed?

We may have to wait longer than expected for ‘Namma Metro’ due to eight writ petitions against this mega project in the courts. Some petitions of them are filed by few of those whose land has been acquired for the project, while some demand a change in proposed route planned. Though the objections raised by Transparency International are being defended by the corporation yet the BMRCL faces shortage of engineers too…

What next?

The resignation of Mr. Yeddyurappa as the Chief Minister of Karnataka has once again put the brakes on the smooth functioning of the government. What next one wonders? Will it be yet another government that is formed on loose agreements or will it be the President’s rule or will it take us to the elections?
