Christmas Weekend Trip to Pondicherry and It's awesome !

Last year we went to pondicherry for a weekend trip, just after Christmas (26th -28th of December 2014).

It all started with "Yaar ! Is weekend toh kahin ghumne jaana hai ? Kuch plan kar bhai !".(Yaar ! Let's plan for a weekend trip.) We were planning for a trip on 25th December for the coming weekend. Friends put forward few suggestions and ultimately we decided to go to pondicherry and the main reason for this decision was the availability of tatkal tickets in the only train from Bangalore to Pondicherry (16573/Yesvantpur-Puducherry Weekly Express).

But, sometimes you may want to show an image on your webpage but you don't want to link an external image file. In that case, you can directly embed your image into the HTML without having to link to an external file.

The idea behind it is that the browser interprets the image file in encoded format. So why not we directly put the encoded data in the src attribute of <img> tag. One of the advantages of embedding the image directly into the HTML is Portability.

There are so many online Base64 Image encoder available on the web. Just google it and you can get a list of on…
