Mars Orbital Mission will be launched on November 5 from Sriharikota in Andhra Pradesh. The initial lauch date was October 28, which is postponed due to bad weather in Pacific Ocean.

If Weather God permits and everything else goes great, ISRO's MOM will be a huge Diwali Bonanza for the Indians. Otherwise, the launch window will remain open till November 19.

Hello World

I had heard about blogs few years back. Since then I wanted to write my blog. But, for some reasons like, what to write, how to write etc, always stopped me.

Finalizing an address for the blog is most depressing thing. Address of your choice will be unavailable and to think of a name, which would be available will take a lot of time.
"Sorry, this blog address is not available" will vanish your enthusiasm/excitement for blogging, unless you come up with a really unique and out-of-box kind of word/words. BTW, my blog name is not so out-of-box, but it's in Hindi (my mother-toung).
This blog-name thing is one of the significant reason, I am coming up with my blog a bit late. Logged in to blogger so many times earlier, but I was not getting a name which I like.

But, this time I was determined to start my blog and So friends, this is the start of  "meri-jigyasa.blogspot.com".
Edit: Now, I have a custom domain "www.merijigyasa.com" for my blog.

Thanks

Sakleshpur - The Green Route Railway Trek, Waterfalls, Jungle Adventures and Much More

The breathtaking images of picturesque railway route from Sakleshpur to Kukke Subramanya captivated us to go for this trek.

We started our journey from Bangalore on Friday evening, had dinner enroute in a dhaba near Hassan and reached Sakleshpur at around the Midnight, Checked into Hotel. Next morning, We talked to some local people and We came to know "The Green Route" Trek is banned for sure. But, still we went to the donigal Railway station, 8 …

Mangalyaan is launched successfully - What Next ?

At 2:38 PM, 5 November - Two days post Diwali, ISRO successfully lauched a rocket "Majestic PSLV C25" towards planet Mars as if they were celebrating Diwali, after spending numerous sleepless nights in their endeavour to make the launch successful, at Satish Dhawan Space Centre, Sriharikota.

India is the first Asian country and the fourth in the world to undertake a mission to the red planet. That's the reason, "A Billion Hopes" were riding with the Mangalyaan launch. ISRO made us feel proud and we can held our head high for the success.

About 45 minutes after the launch, Mars Orbitor Mission (MOM) Satelite, Mangalyaan, separated from its launch rocket and launch rocket has placed the Orbiter very precisely in an elliptical orbit around Earth, which makes the First Stage successful.

Now, Mangalyaan, is expected to go around the Earth for about a month, to attain the escape velocity. So that it can break free from Earth's gravitational pull. Only then Mangalyaa…
