A Trip to Nainital!!!

So it was a five days trip scheduled for Nainital. Though we stayed at Sattal, a place near to Nainital, but it was worth staying there. We stayed in YMCA camp at Sattal. It was a beautiful place, very quiet, in the lap of nature with tall mountains and a calm lake. The trip started with trekking on the mountains in the morning. At night we had bonfire and did lots of fun. Second day we went to visit Naukuchiya tal, Bheemtal and Nainital. I did boating at Nainital, walked on Mall road and did shopping there. Next day most of the students went for adventure sports, but as I had already done those activities, I preferred to explore that place and went to a nearby waterfall to have fun in it. It was an awesome experience.

Finally we came back on day five. The trip helped me in connecting with many students of my college. It was actually a very refreshing exercise which was much required for me. Finally, had a great time and relished the beauty of the nature at Nainital.

Phir Dil Do Hockey Ko...

So after missing the last Olympic games at Beijing, Indian hockey team made it this time for London and that too in style. They actually showed a very professional attitude through out the matches and it looked like the eight  times Olympic champions are back into their lost class. But the teams playing in the qualification round, except Canada, were actually not up to the mark to test the full potential of our team. The real test is lying ahead when they will take the best teams of the world head on.
But it is true that once again the country is looking forward for them and the response from the corporate houses is also very encouraging.
All eyes on our hockey team and fingers are crossed, hoping our team to bring back the honor this time and making this game worth of its status of being our national game.
