RAIKOTA TRIP CONTINUED...

So where was I the last time? Yup ! out of time and I said Ill write later about the trip ( which was awesome inspite of the short duration and the new people that I wine along with. ) Well, I left Bangalore on the 27th of may. It was an evening train, 430 pm. N officially I had college till $ pm. So Me n Feb went to Ushi ( the H.O.D. of the Dept of Pedodontics ) and told her of our trip. She was more than glad to let us take an early leave, coz she s such a fun loving person herself. Of course the bargain was that I had to get back in a few days and draw some cartoons and posters for the department. No problemo man !!!! For the amount of fun I had it was worth it !!!!!!

I reached Banaswadi railway station at 4 and was waiting for the others when it started pouring cats and dogs. Me, and the rest of the gang which followed got completely drenched by the time the train arrived & we managed to squeeze through many more commuters into the train. It was only a 2 hour journey, but still v need place to sit, which was lacking. So at every adjacent station, we would jump out of the train & go to the next bogies to look for place ( unfortunately, wherever v went, it was the same ). At around the 4rth station from Banaswadi, I got down too to rush to the next bogie. My friend Socrates was in the next one n he came out to look for me, Imagine the scene : we both rushed past each other without even realising . Later when a bottle fell outta my bag, did we realise that. The train started moving & horrors of horrors. My bag zip gave way and everythin inside tumbled out. Somehow Soc me and Amogh threw everythin onto the moving train n got on. That was some experience.

We reached Raikota at around 7. It wasn't scorchingly hot as we d been warned because of the generous rain. A bus was there to pick us up and we were taken to an institution called Eternal Light ministries. This place was previously a girls' orphanage but of late its been converted to a full fledged camping place. Still, the few buildings that stood were typical British architecture, like the ones in Dehradoon and mussoorie. Dormitories, common bathrooms, playing fields, a bell to notify breakfast,lunch, tea and dinner, or any important announcements. The enormous piece of land was totally uninhabited except for the few buildings coz the entire area has been purchased by the ministries. It was green and peaceful all around. The air was crisp & clean, and it really reminded me of school.

Once we had settled down & had our coffees, we sat down for praise and worship. For those who don't know what that is, it is singing hymns with devotion to God. Its a liberating experience, and of course, who doesn't like soulful melodies !!! Songs sung to the tune of the guitar... gimme that anytime man !!!!!!! After the P & W we had our dinner together. I opened up to most & conversation started flowing smoothly thereon. I realised its not that tough to make friends after all !!! There were the guys : Savio, Jonathan, Joshua, Srinivas, Socrates, Denzel, Vinay ,Amogh and of course, Pastor Roberts. The girls : Feblin, Nicole, Beverly, Preeti, Candy, Ruth, Usha( Srini's wife ) and Sandy , Pastor's wife. All of us got along pretty well thereafter.

After dinner we had a long walk to Michelle's living quarters. Michelle comes for P & W to our church quite often and she was living here in Raikota on a temporary basis. Listened to some real good music, roamed about, played badminton. After that the gals went to sleep, and we guys chatted on till 1. At 130 Savio and Jonathan were hungry, so v tiptoed into the kitchen to get em some food. Only then did we sleep......

We woke up at 7 the next morning . Brushed our teeth, but guys didn't take a bath. Boys will be boys !!! Had breakfast, another round of P & W, and then got down to some serious business. Pastor Roberts had prepared a slideshow on the ills that plague the young today.... alcoholism, drugs, smoking, casual sex. He told us how to abstain, and how it can destroy our lives. The seminar also included advice as to how to plan out your life , and the importance of saving. After that was the round of anonymous questions, any question tht one would want to ask but was reluctant or shy to. Each person wrote a question on a piece of paper & it was answered by the Pastor. Then there was a lot of spiritual teaching which was sort of relaxing, but v boys were gearing up for the fun after the seminar. We played football for around 2 hours nonstop when it started pouring again. I realised the true fun of playing football is when it rains. We also played some cricket under the downpour. When the evening turned into night, we did not realise. After dinner, there was dumb charades, antakshari, more cricket with the girls also joining in this time.On my part, as usual , a lot of flirting with Beverly and Nicole. Ahem... I quite like Nicole by the way. Hahaha. Srini 's son, Nathan, who is 1 yr old, had us going " Soooooo cute " throughout the trip. He s such an intelligent kid and soooooooo cute.We had lots of fun during the charades coz half the people didnt know hindi and the rest had no knowledge of English movies. So it was utter fun n chaos in the midst !!!!!! This went on till 12 am , n only then did v retire to our rooms. Jonathan, Josh n Savio were talkin bout the Exorcist so they got scared n came slept next to Soc's n my bed. Soc n I talked about Raman , our friend who s now in MUmbai. We don't know what kind of company he s got into and hoped for the best for him. Sleep came soon after

We left Raikota at 7 the next morning. Even as v boarded the train, I had a sense of satisfaction. For I had had a good break from my daily routine, had learnt some important things which im putting in practice now, and made some good friends. On the way back on the train too we played dumb charades. Finally, they had to change the game coz I was gettin bugged playin the same game again n again. So we played Situations, and later , Killer. Killer s a game where u gotta wink, so u can understand that I enjoyed the game a lot ;) Once we got back to Bangalore, we said our byes and went our ways. Most of the people on the trip come to the Church I go to, so Ill be meeting them next Sunday. All in all, it was a wonderful trip, n I hope to have more of the same.... Soon .

Make no mistake: Our mission at Tip Top Equities is to sift through the thousands of underperforming companies out there to find the golden needle in the haystack. A stock worthy of your investment. A stock with the potential for big returns. More often than not, the stocks we profile show a significant increase in stock price, sometimes in days, not months or years. We have come across what we feel is one of those rare deals that the public has not heard about yet. Read on to find out more.

Nano Superlattice Technology Inc. (OTCBB Symbol: NSLT) is a nanotechnology company engaged in the coating of tools and components with nano structured PVD coatings for high-tech industries.

Nano utilizes Arc Bond Sputtering and Superlattice technology to apply multi-layers of super-hard elemental coatings on an array of precision products to achieve a variety of physical properties. The application of the coating on industrial products is designed to change their physical properties, improving a product's durability, resistance, chemical and physical characteristics as well as performance. Nano's super-hard alloy coating materials were especially developed for printed circuit board drills in response to special market requirements

The cutting of circuit boards causes severe wear on the cutting edge of drills and routers. With the increased miniaturization of personal electronics devices the dimensions of holes and cut aways are currently less than 0.2 mm. Nano coats tools with an ultra thin coating (only a few nanometers in thickness) of nitrides which can have a hardness of up to half that of diamond. This has proven to increase tool life by almost ten times. Nano plans to continue research and development into these techniques due to the vast application range for this type of nanotechnology

We believe that Nano is a company on the move. With today�s steady move towards miniaturization we feel that Nano is a company with the right product at the right time. It is our opinion that an investment in Nano will produce great returns for our readers.
