Unplanned but memorable

with 12 comments

Sometimes you plan certain events but they won’t give you much excitement or even may turn sour. Like  planned event unplanned events too may turn exciting, refreshing and even most memorable sometimes. One such memorable and refreshing event was International Friendship Day celebrations I’d with my small group of friends. And luck strikes again on the blissful day ‘ಕನ್ನಡ ರಾಜ್ಯೋತ್ಸವ ದಿನ’ (Nov 1 – Kannada Rajyothsava day). Nov 1st marks the beginning of ‘Kannada Rajyothsava’ and extends throughout the November month and is celebrated with much fervor and liveliness throughout Karnataka.

We didn’t had any special plans for the day but since it happened to be weekend we just planned for a movie. Again Nitin was our event-manager; he was responsible for deciding the Movie and a nearby Threate and then convey the same to everyone in the group. Since it was ‘Kannada Rajyothsava’ too nobody in the group were sure whether theatres were screening non-kannada movies. Nitin took the initiative to call the theatre and find out whether Hindi movies were played on the day. Since nobody at the theatre didn’t answer his phone call he went to sleep without informing anyone – Thanks to his acuteness 😦 And we were in illusion that he was working out the plan 🙂 Rajesh our busy body for the month (he’s getting married this 14th. You know how life will be busy during this transition period) called up to ask about the plan and was too frustrated cos our event-manager didn’t answer is phone calls 🙂 I too started calling him up and luckily his wife (Shilpi) picked my call. Gods grace things started ticking again from where they abruptly halted after his sleepy break :-0

He outlined a simple plan: Movie – Golmaal Returns, Theatre – Sagar in majestic area and Timing – 7:30 PM show. Everyone in the group were informed Read the rest of this entry »

When on Bangalore-Mysore highway…

leave a comment »

There are already existing few amusement parks on Bangalore-Mysore highway (freeway) like Go-Karting, WonderLa, GRS water park (near to Mysore). But there’s this new one, Innovative Film City (God knows why they have ‘film’ in the park name) which has been started very recently, may be on Jan, 28th 2008. Even though the park is not yet built in it’s entirety it’s still drawing huge crowds both adults and children every weekend.

I have described about what I did on International Friendship day in my last post. My friends and me had actually drove on our bikes to Innovative Film City and it hardly took us 45 mins to reach there (we started our ride from RajRajeshwari Nagar on the outskirts of Bangalore). There were no problems in finding this place as throughout the highway we could see signboards guiding use to this place.

There are different variety of themes which suit both Children and Adults. The themes vary from Dino park to Fossil Museum, Ripley’s Believe it or Not! Museum to Guinness Records Museum, Mirror Maze to Aqua Kingdom (with an artificial beach), Go-Karting to Mini-Golf, and many more. There are still unfinished attractions which are yet to come up like Miniature City, Haunted Mansion, Louis Wax Museum. Apart from these fun attractions there’s also wide variety of food stalls to quench your appetite.

If you’re planning to have tons of fun on a holiday or on a special day you must try IFC once. The mantra is to Read the rest of this entry »
