Bodybuilding, the sport that is long ignored and misunderstood in India. Manohar Aich, The second Mr. Universe from India who won it in the year 1952 is no more (The first being Monotosh Roy in 1951). He passed away on Jun.05, 2016 at the ripe old age of 104. He had been the inspiration behind number of promising Bodybuilders from India, who have gone ahead and reached great heights in Bodybuilding. Notable among them are PremChand Dogra, Satya Pal and countless others. I am one of the privileged few who met this legend and learnt the intricacies and fine techniques of Bodybuilding.
After a nice weekend, we are back to Monday. This Monday was no different, since we all have the typical Monday blues of pulling off from the family on the weekends and throwing outselves into the hectic schedule for the week. The only thing in mind is the work schedule and what lay in store for us within the depths of countless emails. It was surely one such day. Before getting into the office, I spend my time at the Gym for my HIT workout and picked up a dear friend Pratheesh who accompanied me.

A tribute to our honorable President, APJ Abdul Kalam
With his passing away, he has left a unimaginable and unfathomable void, which will never be filled in judiciously in the coming generations. We all love him as our Abdul Kalam, for he ruled our hearts as a warm, humble and simple being.
A few lines, I wrote for one of the greatest persons; India has ever seen and experienced.
It was early morning 9:30 AM. I had promised my friend Yanesh to accompany him to Ernakulam Broadway for getting some items/ goods. Ernakulam Broadway, a market place for everything and anything. We began from the Kakannad area and slowly began driving up towards Ernakulam Broadway. To avoid the traffic and have least resistance, we took the NH towards Vytilla.
PayCommerce brilliant against VI Point Solutions – Goal’15
With already a loss in the first league game for us in Goal’15; we came back with a never before seen energy and motivation. We had to win this game by a margin of atleast 4-0 to make it to the top of the league. The team was in spirits and looking forward to the match. Though a scoreline of 4-0 looks unrealistic, we were hoping for this margin. On the D-day, we had our opponents as VI Point Solutions.
With the heat catching up in Goal’15 (the InfoPark football extravaganza), PayCommerce had a crucial match against NeST coming into the League games. A match we could not afford to lose. I made it to the ground for the match and the PayCommerce team was just getting into the mode for playing. The team readied up and had a few stint with the ball.
Goal 2015 – Match update (PayCommerce with Kreata Global)
Sunday, Mar.29, 2015
With a win the previous day against Zerone Consulting, we were raring to go in the next game. The game began with the customary hiccups normally associated with our team and with a few supporters on the ground. As seen in the last round, Kreata Global too had a large backup of players to let the players roll on effortlessly. It was the tight situation for us. With just 2 players to roll on, we had to walk the tightrope every game.
