These are the pics, which I captured during my journey from Bengaluru to Paris, to continue my course after enjoying two months of Vacation in home.

Contrary to last year, I was little excited (not even little I guess) while leaving home this time. I missed everything I had in last 2 months. And, it was a solo trip. Thanks to my brother, he gave his phone (on request even though he was ready to buy me a new phone ) which accompanied me because of which I was able capture these moments.

Marine Dog – Lucca

Pacific Paratrooper

Two Heroes! Two Heroes!

Marine dog, Lucca, was given a wonderful tribute in the Parade Sunday magazine.  After more than 400 missions in Afghanistan, no one had been hurt by an IED when they were with her.  She was the only one that the Green Berets felt comfortable hugging after a tough day.

Mamma Lucca, as she is nicknamed, was injured herself.  Handler Col. Juan “Rod” Rodriguez quickly applied a tourniquet and she was air-lifted to one veterinary team after another in all-out attempts to save her life.  They succeeded, but Lucca lost her right left leg in the action.  You can see her honorary Purple Heart on her harness.  Today she lives with her original trainer, Gunnery Sgt. Chris Willingham and his family.  She continues to serve at VA hospitals and in schools.

Could someone please explain to me WHY this Hero’s Purple Heart is considered HONORARY??

Vinod, Sachin, Jayanth and I are 4 innocent guys (atleast some people think that way). We were headed to Goa on Jan 31st to take part in a trekking expedition organised by YHAI (Youth hostels association of India), in the Western ghats starting from Jan 2nd.
We boarded the Vasco express from Bangalore, Karnataka on Jan 31st and celebrated the New year 2014 on the train. How you ask? Well, we stood near the charging points in train, hooked to our cell phones and responded to calls as the train sped ahead, over 120kmph. Then we took a bland group photo at the Hubli railway station after which we slept through the night.

We reached Goa (Madgaon railway station) at 6am. The base camp for the trek was situated far far…
