One for the Kitchen, One for the Soul

                                      One for the kitchen ,One for the soul

This could be a renowned expression means one pursuit is sensible or necessary and another pursuit is a passion or a labour of affection. it’s the simplest way of describing a healthy balance of life.

We are all born with little tiny seeds of inspiration inside of us. It’s our soul’s greatest purpose to nurture these seeds and permit them to blossom, absolutely sharing their beauty with the planet throughout this period. It’s why we have a tendency to all has distinctive abilities, likes, interests, and passion.

However, as we grow into adulthood, we often lose connection to this source. Caught up in the responsibility of daily lives, our passion and true desire gets put on the back burner. We decide we will ‘play’ with it later. At the same time, so many people are unsatisfied with their lives. Even if everything looks picture perfect from the outside, typically times there’s a sense of discontentedness. This delay of taking part in it later took to never ending the cycle.

Last year, I had a weird encounter at the food market. whereas reaching for my revolving credit to procure my groceries, the cashier looked straight into my eyes and aforesaid, “Are you living your dream?” I used to be altogether rattled, and stammered one thing like, “I’m unsure.” He laughed and pointed towards my hands. I’d forgotten that my billfold had been taken recently and I’d been employing a temporary MasterCard holder created out of recycled materials that had the words “LIVE YOUR DREAM” written thereon. He was simply creating oral communication, however, it absolutely was a rare moment that sparked an excellent deal of self-contemplation.

Although it absolutely was a standard issue, however, what will it mean to measure your dream?Why folks don’t follow their dream? why we have a tendency to curse our past, and scenario for forgetting our passion. However, the issue most people complete education and our dreams become specific. Throughout our childhood, we wish to become pilot, doctor or a teacher, as we grow up our dreams changes we get into new fields and starting learning about them. Your dreams should be your passion. There is a famous quote,

Make goals, dream big and live with passion

Think about the last time when really pushed yourself passionately for achieving something. Just subtract the sale figures, the number of order you got, that new software system, the solved quality issue, new recruitments, and for a lot of. We have a tendency to area unit left with nothing as a result of we have a tendency to were busy in achieving all this. Nobody dreamt of changing into a business analyst, technical recruiter or a production manager. However as we have a tendency to fully grown our dreams become specific, we have a tendency to virtually dreamt of changing into anybody of those executives. However, will these positions kill your passion? No, it absolutely was your dream and so with time, you gave your best to urge promoted, to urge raise or maybe an even bigger cabin. Thus do not judge yourself, of these has given happiness to your soul, it gave bread and butter for your social unit.

People can urge you to follow your dream, I will be able to say follow your goals. After you follow your goals, you recognise the hurdles. Once you know the hurdles, you will try to find the solution. Now there is no difference between dreams and goals. goals are the stages of dreams, which we achieve and climb to next level which takes you to your dream. See the ultimate dream, how you want to see your life after 30 years, 40 years and so on. So doing good in your work is the most passionate thing you are doing, It is making everything good and comfortable for you. There will be some inglorious time but when you add all them it will take you to ultimate dream.

Create your work your passion, dream a cheerful life.

 

The bike that gets worshipped

India is a land where you’ll not only see gods being worshipped but even trees and animals. But, I bet you’ve never seen a motorbike being worshipped, have you? Say what? That was my reaction too when I first discovered this strange but true fact.

Believe it or not but at the Om Banna Temple, the motorbike is worshipped as a deity! No wonder, it left me amazed as I stood wide-mouthed seeing a tall, black Royal Enfield Bullet ornamented with flower garlands and shielded in a glass box.

Located in the Pali district of Chotila Village, almost 50 kilometres from Jodhpur, this temple is the star attraction for a traveller crossing National Highway 65 in Pali. Hundreds of people come here every day to offer liquor and pray for a safe journey.

Om-Banna-Temple-Bullet-Baba-Jodhpur-Pali-3

I am not making this up, as it is one of the most awestruck places where every rider visit. There are many stories heard about this place but the most famous are the appearance of the motorbike at the accident spot. Police emptied the tank still next day bike was found lying at the accident spot.  Soon locals started worshipping the motorbike. Soon the place came to known as Bullet baba. Strange?

The Royal Enfield bike is encased in a glass box.What caught my striking attention was the sight of devotees offering alcohol to the bust of Om Banna. Believers of Om Banna make a wish at the temple and return on fulfillment to offer Om Banna a bottle of alcohol. Surely, one weird ritual!

But one issue is certain In Asian nation Royal Enfield is worshiped.

A Rider’s diary

img_20170308_182917.jpg
I’ve been riding motorcycles for seven years. It’s extremely laborious to believe I’ve been doing something that long; several different hobbies and dalliances have come back and gone over those years. However riding and also the terrible culture of motorcycles has lodged itself into my being, in a very means that few different things have. Why? I don’t extremely are aware of it. Chatting with my riding mates, we have a tendency to all have such a lot of anecdotes, such a lot data we’ve gathered from all that seat time. There’s a clarity within the expertise, a richness that accumulates. The best, most intimate riders don’t extremely place confidence in it that abundant, they simply get on with it, and their riding looks easy. however, we’re all effort for that. I assume the 7-year mark simply is enough to pin down some lessons learnt while riding.
So here could be a bit what I learned over seven years of riding. I doubt everybody can believe all of it. Hopefully, you’ll like few

  • Learn to be quick and sleek. this is often, however, you management your life. It tries to manoeuvre quickly however your expertise makes it sleek.
  • It is invariably higher to predict than to react. Be the associate optimistic one that cares for everything in a very positive means.You need to remember what’s happening in around you.
  • Riding off road causes you to a far better rider. You learn to handle the case wherever traction is dodgy and touch upon obstacles. It is fun.
  • Life can keep going, the clock can keep ticking and affirmative, the boss can keep screaming. however, my bike can keep my curve smile that sets everything straight on behalf of me.
  • This was from my father. the sooner you rise to ride, the higher you ride are. It really seems to be a life lesson on behalf of me.
  • Riding a motorcycle is concerning as pure associate exercise in moment living. Our bodies and mind meld with the motorcycles, the management associate extension of our thoughts.
  • And finally, each second spent on top of the ground is nice. a day spent on 2 wheels is best. Amen!
                                          Happiness is riding a bike. Once unsure, ride it out.

A legend’s thought- Yamaha

When you’re a 20-year-old motorcycle, there’s always something that’s going bust on it. It could be the meters or the brakes, the lights or the carburetor. It could even be some nuts & bolts that suddenly decided they’d had enough and decide to hop off. But as long as you keep that 2T-Fuel mixture flowing, that heart will keep on beating strong. And within those limitations, some go on to find a resonance whose sweetness is best experienced than explained…

5 reasons to buy KTM 390 2017

KTM-390-Duke-MY17_ActionKTM has finally pulled the wraps off their most anticipated motorcycles-duke 200 and duke390. Both of them were much awaited but KTM pulled out another surprise for their customer and played a well-planned gamble by launching a KTM 250. Although the KTM duke 200 didn’t get any major update.Styling and bodywork of the new Duke 390 inspired by the KTM 1290 Super Duke R. Major updates include Ride-by-wire throttle, LED headlamp, TFT display and side-slung exhaust. KTM duke 250 is something which mix of both 200 and 390. It has got the best styling but lost ride by wire feature. But what is it about the KTM 390 that make them stand apart from the crowd?

We list 5 features about these KTM 390 that you ought to know-

  • Design inspiration

The KTM duke 390 are designed on the lines of KTM’s purebred superbikes — the KTM super Duke 1290. The manufacturer has incorporated all the major elements of super Duke into the new bikes, making them highly enthralling and tempting for prospective buyers. From the fairing to the sharp and sporty rear end, the bike simply looks impeccable.

  • Engine

KTM Duke 390 are powered by mono-cylinder, 4-stroke, water-cooled engine with a displacement 373.2cc respectively. This machine is the most powerful options available in sub 500cc category. The Duke 390 dishes out an astonishing 45bhp of power.2017-ktm-duke-390-india-official-image-side-263x180

  • All new headlight

390 Duke now carries a Super Duke inspired headlamp assembly with LED lights. The structure has been divided into two parts and 6 LEDs have been used in total. The pass may activate both at the same time, throwing a strong beam of crystal clear, focused light on the road. The surrounding of the headlight is actually a horn-shaped DRL on the motorcycle. Even the low beam would be always on like the current series of KTM motorcycle.

  • Full TFT Instrument Console

Unlike the current generation’s full digital instrument console, the 2017 KTM 390 Duke features rectangular, colored display with more ease in terms of readability and content. It will enable the rider to even pair a smartphone through optional KTM MY Ride package. The buttons on the left handlebars are actually placed for easy operation of the console.

  • Ride by wire system

Introducing Ride by Wire on the new KTM 390 Duke was the best thing KTM did to the favorite bike in their Indian lineup. They have no yet provided extensive features based on the same, including cruise control or traction control but the effect can be seen in the way the motorcycle rides in its 2017 version. It will sip the right amount of fuel and deliver power smoothly across the rev-band. It even opens the future possibility of using riding modes in the motorcycle of such class.

The bike has become safer and practical. Ride by wire has enhanced the performance. Although this new bike is 10kg heavier than the previous one and also there is a reduction of 1.5bhp but the increased torque has made this bike super fun to ride. So this motorbike is enough to ride to increase the adrenaline.
