me and moon – 180 Kms

Last weekend I have been to my native and I traveled in my bike (RX 100). It was almost around 180 Kms from Chennai. My bike’s engine got ceased few months back , since then it was in worst condition , pick up was reduced etc., So I planned to leave it for a complete service and to make some alterations ( making more sporty). I have few well known mechanics in Pondy, so I took it to Pondy. Now the bike is in service station.

While returning to Chennai I took my brother’s bike (TVS Vector) and it was the best journey/ride/driving I have experienced. It’s not due to the bike but due to the flat bed road (ECR – East cost Road),hugging breeze, the drizzling sun light and dazzling full moon light. It’s really awesome. Its long time since I have traveled a long distance using bike. So I enjoyed my ride with the average speed of 70 and maximum of 90 (its the maximum for Vector). 😦

Usually in any long distance bike drive I will stop the bike at every one hour , but this time I have stopped for every 45 mins ..its bcos of the beauty of The Full Moon. the climate was really amazing on that day, I started at 5.30 pm and it started drizzling along with the drizzles of sun light. At one stage around 6.15 pm I stopped at a bridge ( next to place Marakanam) , it was a bridge which runs over a river and the will be around one KM distance. I parked my bike in the road side and sitting on the bridge wall , I started looking at the sun set. No words to express the beauty of the scene. And just opposite to that direction the moon was there with a dull transparent white color. It’s really a wonder to see both sun and moon at the same time.

The suns light and moons light are indirectly proportional. Said a bye to sun I started , the moons brightness keeps on increasing and I was chasing a Air Bus (parveen) all along the way. All the way I was looking at the sky for the moon with a big circle around it. I know It is bit dangerous on concentrating the speed and the moon and the road at the same time. But I managed , and I could not control myself of watching the moon. My last stop was a place near Chennai (50 Kms) , usually I watch the place while traveling in bus , its a park on the road side with lawn and lots of wooden chairs and tables and a Ice cream shop. It gives the best view of sea shore ( sea water is just 600 to 700 meters away). I got a Mango stick in the shop and sat on the wooden chair and started watching the moon and its shine in the beach water and the fresh breeze. Really I enjoyed each and every moment.

I wish to spend some more time there but I was about to attend my friends engagement function at Vijay park hotel. So I started and then caught in city traffic and I reached near the hotel at 9.30 pm and could not able to attend the function .

For me travelling and living is good when it happens along with the moon. I don’t know why I am becoming such a big moon lover , anyways it good. And I miss my bike (black chetah) a lot .

Deal between sun and moon …!

I traveled some 1200 kms (up and down) last weekend. This time it was a bus journey. On both the journey the buses were comfortable. Though my friend was there with me , I was mostly accompanied with my Love ( The Moon). All along the journey I was looking at the moon by pushing back the semi sleeper seat . Some times the bus direction changes and the moon disappears from my side..but at that time I will be watching the drizzles of light from the moon all over the places.

Moon brings more beauty not only to the mountains , rivers, back waters, bridges. It also adds more beauty to the NH roads and roadside areas. Hope there would be a agreement between the Sun and the Moon. Because the lashings of darkness was smoothly removed by the Moon. The moons light penetrates into all the corners of the darkness. So Moon works for Sun in the night time. For me Sun is a Dazzler and Moon is a Drizzlier of Light. So both works for bringing light.

Thanks for Moon for making my journeys as good ones. Thanks for coming with me always. Every journey is a new experience along with the Moon. I wish to add another name for the moon ..it is ..” Traveling Moon“.

Life is more beautiful ..because of the Moon.
