Just a cut below my lower jaw


Dubare 062

Over the previous weekend, a bunch of us from office decided to take off to Coorg. A long walk in the Dubare forest on the first day, and some water sports on the second. Nice little stay. Fun outing. The scary part was getting into the water, in the middle of a large lake formed as part of the Kabini reservior. First time I was getting into the water without able to feel the ground beneath my feet. Then I saw people scared to death with just the thought of getting into the water. Irony is when person A tells person P 'You look so relaxed and comfortable in the water' and then goes nuts when asked to get into the water.
Hydrophobics they called themselves. All this inspite of wearing a lifejacket.

While in the water, the instructor gave me a push with his paddle to move me closer to place where the rest of the people in the water were floating. The paddle slipped and hit me right below my lower lip. I fear to imagine how the self-proclaimed 'hydrophobics' would have reacted if it had been them who took the blow and not me.
Well, all that is done and we are back to suffer the monotony of office.
This is my Flickr photo set.
By the way, the image you see is of the only manager in the group throwing his weight around. Literally ;-)
