Trip to Mahabalipuram

It started with midnight buffet at The Residency. Actually, it was sponsored; a birthday treat thrown by 5 of us [ including me 😦 ].


Then we set off to Mahabalipuram at around 10 in the morning. We couldn’t manage bikes, so we boarded a bus, covered most of the journey standing and reached after an hour. Lunch was the first everyone could think of. So this was it:


We ate well, and a part of the ‘feel-good’ factor was the cool ambience:

Lastly, there is one thing that I flatly disapprove:


I know most of the people reading this post will never do such things, but that does not close the issue. Defaulters are always there. Don’t you find it disgusting? Let’s do something to stop this. I request all of you to copy the above pic and display it in your blog/orkut album/online photo gallery and everywhere you could think of. Let’s honour the men and women who had such skills and ability to labour that makes people of today’s highly technological age marvel at their creations.
