Its first time for me to be in Mumbai. I am here in Mumbai for VISA stamping work. Mumbai looks great. I am really feeling home here. Traffic is better than Bangalore. Nice to see the sea side. today i have submitted my VISA application form etc at the Netherlands call center . Tomorrow i got to attend a personal interivew at the consulate. Well, there are few good things about this trip. 1. I bought a book called "Who will cry when you die" a small but really great self help book. This really helps one to rediscover life. We all have great thoughts in mind, but only few of us go ahead and work towards it. But bought this book by looking at the title, just wondering "will some one cry really if i die?". One has to achieve something in life inorder to make sure, the world is going to miss you really, if you are missing from the world :-). Reading is a book is great. I was spending most of my time infront of the smart box (my desktop) or the idiotbox (TV). But reading
Here is the list of items: It helps to have Rust-Oleum Marking paint (spray) to mark location and make sure to measure the dimensions and directions accurately. Key steps for the project: First Part: Identify location, if you are in a HOA community, please seek approval. Make sure you have a plan. I planned simple 4x4x10 posts (2 ft into the ground) and then 4x4x12 for horizontal lumber and then additional 4x4x10 lumber for the width. These 4 bars provide all the required major support. I filled the gap with 2x4x10 bars and then finally 1x2x8 bars for plants to hold on to. vine plants tendrils cant hold too big of a wood, so 1x2 makes an easy choice. Getting this plan was a key step for me. Mark your Post locations, make sure you check the distances between posts across. It doesnt hurt if few inches are off, but what matters is to get it accurate as possible. Digging post holes, is an important step, depending upon your location, it may be hard soil or it may have stones.
My two visits to Vikarabad and earlier visits to Mahima orphange in chandanagar are now towards a concrete action plan to build a proper shelter for the orphan home (also houses old age people and HIV infected ones). I along with collegues at IVY Comptech (called Sparsh group @IVY) have pooled up around 6.5L so far from contributions of employees who are interested in this activity. This is really decent amount to build them a 35*140 size shelter, which could accomodate around 150 to 200 people (including kids). Overall, I am happy with the progress, in another 2 to 3 months, we will have the structure ready. This is my 2nd activity(first one being the Dyvakrupa orphan home at secunderabad thanda, near Mahbubabad, Warangal district. I worked with my friends at TMAD to pool up 3L and build them facilities. It was quicker at TMAD as there is no delay in decision making). I must take some break after this activity, There has been too many activities this year and it is being grow
