Best Restaurant in Haputale - Risara Bakery

Haputala is a small lovely village near to more popular Horton Plains. It serves as a base for people visiting to Horton plains and have many options to stay but very limited options to eat. Hotel restaurants are so expensive for no reason. during our recent trip to Haputale we came across a nice place to eat in Haputale. First day we ate at our hotel Sea Lak views and the food was just ok by taste and not value for money. Next day we explored the small bazaar area and came across a small bakery called Risara. As many guide books and online travel forums suggest that the best and most value for money place to have your food in Sri Lanka is to find the place where locals eat. Risara bakery is something similar and run by some local Muslims, expert in chicken curries and biryanis. It's just next to the bus stand in Haputala and I guess only independent restaurant separated from local hotels. its a very basic place and have small place to sit at the first floor, has very friendly pe…

How to Check Your Vodafone Postpaid 3G data balance

Though I will never recommended any one to get 3g on postpaid connections (its 12.5% more expensive than Prepaid Connections) for Example a 3gb monthly Prepaid Vodafone 3G will cost 654 and same Data limit on postpaid connections will cost 732 Rupees.

Prepaid Postpaid 3GB plan 654 Price Paid = 654 3 GB Plan 650 Price Paid = 650+12.2% =732 Note: on postpaid connections you have to pay 12.2% taxes on overall Bill.

Online Personal Trainer India - Nipun Jain Review

Rarest of times when you pay for some services and are too impressed by the outcome that you want the rest of the world to know about it as well. Today, I am taking the pain to write about one of my dear friend who is a part of the ongoing virtual revolution. Things are moving online, from chaddi to car, you can buy or get information about everything with just few clicks online. 
This post is about the next frontier of fitness: Online Personal trainer in India.

It all started when I was 16 and introduced to the world of wrestling. The main attraction on WWE at that time was the beast ‘BROCK LESNAR’ – and seeing him week after week destroying people in the ring and enthusiastically watching his tremendous physique, his massive shoulders, broad chest and scary strength was a strong influence on my youth. It was him who lighted a fire in the heart of a skinny young lad. I was merely 51 or 52 kg and could easily count my bones in the mirror. Unknown to the science of muscle buil…

Day before yesterday during the first cricket match between India vs Australia. I tried almost all the websites which claim to provide live Cricket streaming, but hard luck the only things I could stream there were few crazy ads and some time counters. after wasting half hour or so I decided to give some android apps a try, and guess what the second one which I tried worked like a charm. Not only it had live Cricket match in HD quality but many other Indian news and movie channels as well. Its extremely easy to use.

ना द्वारका में मिले बिराजे, ब्रज की गलियों में भी नहीं हो।
ना योगियों के ध्यान में हो तुम,अहम् जड़े ज्ञान में तुम नहीं हो।तुम्हे ये जग ढूढता है कान्हा, मगर इसे ये खबर नहीं है बस एक मेरा है भाग्य मोहन, अगर कही हो तो तुम यही हो

Proven method to beat motion sickness India - works like magic

“O dear Himalaya...why are you so amazing, can I kiss your peak or can I just let your silence speak...O dear Himalaya...” Santosh Kalwar

Indian mountain ranges are treat for any nature lovers in the world. Those shiny sparkling cloud kissing Himalayas snowy peaks are full of different aspects of life and traveling to experience them from close could be one of the most memorable moments you can remember for rest of your life. 
As they say good things come with hard work and the hardest thing to reach those beautiful mountains are the curvy and usually bumpy hilly roads which lead to them. I have been victim of motion sickness many times in the past and realized not even taking any medication helped practically. I am someone who loves nature and love more to be closer to them but afraid to travel long hours on mountain road as it comes with danger of being sick. During my last trip to Himalayas I was able to get solution for this ugly and embarrassing dieses called “Motion Sickness” an…

IRCTC Executive Lounge Review & Contact Details

"यात्रिगन  कृपया ध्यान दे, ट्रेन नंबर 12502, कानपुर - इलाहाबाद के रास्ते गुवाहाटी को जाने  वाली, पूर्वोत्तर संपर्क क्रांति एक्सप्रेस अपने निर्धारित समय से 6 घंटे की देरी से जाएगी। असुविधा के लिए खेद है" Indian railway did it again, my train Poorvottar Sapt Kranti 12502 to Allahabad was delayed around 7 hours, all of a sudden my 11:45 pm train was reschedule at 6:30 am. It was really difficult to wait 7 hours in Delhi’s cold night and I was in two minds if I should cancel the journey and go back home or go to the budget traveller's paradise next door Paharganj, take a hotel, catch some rest and take the train in the morning. Of course my love for Sangam (Allahabad) did not let me scrap the journey and I decided for the second option and started to move towards Pahargang. All of a sudden I saw an advertisement board of IRCTC executive lounge on platform 1 and to save myself from Hustle of Pahargang I decided to give them a call. The IRCTC lounge is located on platform 16…
