Hardik Pandya helped India to win the match

I am a huge fan of all rounder Hardik Pandya. Yesterday there was a one day cricket match between India and Australia. India won the toss and elected to bat first. Hoping to watch Indian batting , I sat infront of tv at 1.30 pm.

Soon match started. In just in half an hour , India were 11/3 !! I switched off t.v.

When I switched on , Hardik Pandya and Dhoni were batting. They were concentrating on getting single runs. Soon Pandya finished his 50. Then he started to hit 4s and 6s.

I am a fan of Hardik Pandya since the days of champion cricket trophy final match against Pakistan. In yesterday's match also, he batted well.

I didn't watch Australian batting as the match was halted because of rain interruption. I have read in the news paper that he bowled well and succeeded to take 2 wickets of Australia.

I have also read that he had hit 3 consecutive sixes. I didn't keep the count . But my admiration for Hardik Pandya got doubled now !

Rain due to depression at Arabian sea in udupi

Since last Friday night, it is raining in Udupi. This year, we , residents of udupi , didn't experience usual amount of rainfall during monsoon.

Now, it is the time of monsoon coming to an end in our area. But surprisingly , we are having rainfall NOW because of depression which is created in Arabian sea.

If this is going to repeat in coming days also , I pray to God to keep on bringing the depression in Arabian sea every time especially in the months March to May.

These are the months in a year where the temperature is in its highest level in udupi. If we get rain in these months , I can sleep well during nights without sweating !

Vitlapindi celebration in Udupi

September 13 was the day of Krishna janmashtami in udupi. The next day i.e. September 14 is the day of vitlapindi in udupi.

Yesterday I watched the vitlapindi programs live on t.v. thanks to our cable operator. I was speechless by watching the programs. Though I watch vitlapindi programs , I was watching only till the programs get over in Rajaangana , the place where the Krishna mutt people arrange the programs.

But yesterday , I was watching the programs held at Anna Vittala Vedike . These programs are sponsored by Shiroor Mutt Seer. The program started with Mara kaalu kunita meaning dancing with wooden leg tied to normal human leg.

 Then came different raakshasa vesha. These raakshasas got killed by Lord Sri Krishna in his childhood. Krishna used to play his divine plays called leela.  To remember that, people recreate his leela and enjoy.

How I can forget the famous huli vesha ? There were many teams present. These teams exhibit acrobatic exercises too. It is a delight to watch as they perform. What came as a surprise to me was someone had put the vesha of Kattappa from the movie baahubali !

There were some people who had put different veshas taking lots of trouble, to collect the money so that they can help the needy and poor people. Now that is celebrating the festival with a unique purpose.

Actors from Tulu cinema industry had graced the occasion. It was a lovely evening. I have to wait for next year to watch all these once again ......

Earthquake lights

A massive earth quake of the magnitude 8.2 had hit Mexico earlier this week. People reported saying that there were flashes of light on the sky . But these lights are the side effects of high magnitude earthquake and called earthquake lights .

We know that during an earthquake , there will be stress between the tectonic plates of earth. In certain types of rocks , like quartz  , this stress can break up pairs of negatively charged oxygen atoms on the ground  , allowing them to flow upto the surface as an electric current  through cracks in the rocks.

If enough atoms are present , they can ionize pockets of air and form a charged gas , that emits light . These are called earthquake lights .

ಗೋಧಿ ಹಿಟ್ಟಿನ ಉಂಡೆ

ನಮ್ಮ ಕಡೆ ಸೌರ ಕೃಷ್ಣ ಜನ್ಮಾಷ್ಟಮಿ ಯನ್ನು ಆಚರಿಸುತ್ತೇವೆ. ಹಾಗಾಗಿ ನಾನು ಗೋಧಿ ಹಿಟ್ಟಿನ ಉಂಡೆ ಮಾಡುವ ವಿಧಾನವನ್ನು ಟಿ.ವಿ. ಯಲ್ಲಿ ನೋಡಿದೆ.

ಬೇಕಾಗುವ ಸಾಮಗ್ರಿಗಳು ------

ಗೋಧಿ ಹಿಟ್ಟು - ೧ ಕಪ್
ಏಲಕ್ಕಿ ಪುಡಿ ಬೆರೆಸಿದ ಸಕ್ಕರೆ - ೧ ಕಪ್ ಅಥವಾ ರುಚಿಗೆ ತಕ್ಕಷ್ಟು
ಉಂಡೆ ಕಟ್ಟಲು ಬೇಕಾದಷ್ಟು ತುಪ್ಪ

ಮಾಡುವ ವಿಧಾನ ----

ಮೊದಲು ಗೋಧಿ ಹಿಟ್ಟನ್ನು ಕೆಂಪಗೆ ಆಗುವಂತೆ ಎಣ್ಣೆ ಹಾಕದೆ ಬಿಸಿ ಮಾಡಿ. ನಂತರ ಇದಕ್ಕೆ ಏಲಕ್ಕಿ ಪುಡಿ ಬೆರೆಸಿದ ಸಕ್ಕರೆ ಸೇರಿಸಿ ಚೆನ್ನಾಗಿ ಕಲಸಿ. ನಂತರ ಇದಕ್ಕೆ ತುಪ್ಪ ಸೇರಿಸಿ.
ಈಗ ಕೈಗೆ ತುಪ್ಪ ಹಚ್ಚಿ ಕೊಂಡು ಉಂಡೆಗಳನ್ನು  ಕಟ್ಟಿ .
