New Year Resolutions

New Year is the time when people make resolutions, become nostalgic, sun burn themselves over dawn parties and make merry. I don't really think that the day is special or very different from the every other awesome day I live. Yet since our days are numbered (Remember 2012?) its worth giving my $0.02 to this phenomenon.

After completing 3.5 years of computer science, and watching 3 idiots, I have my new found passion for Cyrillic. I always wanted to learn it to facilitate communication between our fellow visitors from the far off lands. For example, after learning Cyrillic it would take minimal efforts to understand what's below.

An announcement for the Tourists at Mandrem Beach

For those who do not understand the above,its a pity since I would prefer using my skill sparingly. Also considering that the world would soon have non-english URL's, it pays to know Cyrillic.

Secondly I will explore each and every cave of Goa (No URL for something as pristine as that). I recently discovered an underground tunnel leading to a cave. The tunnel starts just below this desolate house named 'Matreja' around the fatorda stadium circle, behind Ravindra Bhavan and the unmaintained lake. The cave, largely inhabited by bats goes right into the city centre and has two openings which I have been to and one of them opens right at the spot from where I could see the below scene.


As of now the cave has been hardly explored and much needs to be studied about it. Only a handful of people know about the exact location and this is the best description I can give of it since I am bound by the non-disclosure of the new caves discovery act, 1885 provedaria de Goa. As I complete my trail and make new discoveries I will release more information for public disposal. It is likely that soon we humans would go back to living in caves to show our solidarity towards our great ancestors without whose procreation we wouldn't have existed.


I would make a film, a tale of 2 hostels, of love and horror, passion and compassion, war and peace. The story will be an epic starring anti-Virus as the main protagonist with the tagline: Hostel life will never be lively again.


Several other resolutions are in the pipeline and would come out just in time the clock strikes midnight.

On a more serious note, I would like to thank everyone who made this year a wonderful experience. I will never have enough of you. Thanks to vodafone, gtalk BITS and Margao for the amazing moments and the many more...

Happy New Year -1!

It would have been a little less melodramatic if you had said that the cave went deep down till the center of the earth :P

ratpik said...

Well you should see it to believe it. It actually exists, check it out the next time you come to the pool, its right after that fatorda circle.

Chimu said...

That's just infront of George Garments na?

Chimu said...

BTW if u had actually gone from one end to another, why u didn't take pics inside? Somehow it's hard to believe u went from one end to the other considering that there were bats inside and u don't take the risk to push off for a momentum kick even in shallow waters :P

Aniket Agshikar said...

dude.. do u believe in 2012 & the Mayan prophecy?

ratpik said...

@Aniket - Not really, but Yellowstone National park is for real the crater of a volcano and so are many other things which make for interesting speculations.

Guttu said...

Nice article. Discovering new caves is tough tasks. Just beware of the snakes not the bats.

ratpik said...

Well I intended a bit of sarcastic hyperboles in everything up there :P
