hai friends, i am solitary walker... i am a new one to this blogspot, so dont knw wht all we can add here,.. anyway i start with my adventerous byke drive through the roads of kochi..

on hearing this, one may feel i was driving at very high speed, but i am saying abt the ordinary driving only, but why i said as adventerous? those who from kochi can understand me..
my home is at chotanikkara, a village,18 km away from city. but for learning java at NIIT RAVIPURAM i hav to travel this small distance daily.

how much time we can usually take for this distance ?? around 18-20 minues is the time needed in most places. but in my great kochi i take 1-1.2 hours to cover that distance !!! its not only because of the traffic alone, but the road too help me a lot in taking this much time.. around 1500 gutters per km is the standard road quality at kochi.. those who are living in kochi knw it well.. last week i was planning to learn swimming to cover vytila- kadavanthra road.. IN ANY OTHER NATION ECONOMICALLY IMPORTANT CITY WILL BE WELL INFRASTRUCTERED, THOUTH THEIR VILLAGES ARE IN BAD STATES, BUT HERE ITS JST OPPOSITE..

still i didnt tell my adventures rite??? jst imagine my driving in such a nice road in such a heavy traffic. tht itself is a big adventure na??? then the driving through the medians and footpath using my honda unicorn( i dont knw how long i can use tht, its already getting affected by this heavenly journey) .... most important places tht i cover include vytilla junction.... usually LMV will take 25-30 mins to cover this junction. but guys i am really great tht i do it in jst 2 minutes, wht u really need to do it is pray to god to make you reach your destination alive!!! i learned may tricks on this spot, how to take your byke through small gaps, how can i ride my byke without being caught by straydogs and all.. one can really try their luck in this spot.

the road from there is very beautiful.. once go through that road, you will surely go to an automobile spare parts shop soon. happy kya??? there are 2-3 busstops before reaching kathrukadavu,fortunately no bus stops at the road side.all stop busses in the middle so that even a twowheeler cant cross it.. also it is helpful for encouraging their competitions..

next beautiful place is kathrukadavu junction, this place is famous for bus stop and the way they taking the curve.. fortunately i am still alive. everyday buses try to hit me :-) but i will jst escape from them... but i cant take revenge naa :-( wht a poor byke can do back???

you can see even persons driving cycles through the middle of road in this traffic jam.. they are more lucky as they usually reach destinations faster than us...

then the famous ERNAKULAM SOUTH OVERBRIDGE near malayala manorama.. as i dint hav pic of that spot, let me place north overbridge pic, plz pardon for not adding that spot. its the real place for my circus, footpath is my favourite road on these places,. i am sure one day one of these slabs ma break an i will fall in the drainage there, but i hav no other choice as both road and drainages are in same situation. ONE WHO CROSS THE OVERBRIGE WITHOUT HITTING NEARBY VEHICLE CAN BE CONSIDERED AS A MASTER IN DRIVING.

most of the cities hav good roads, but our kochi hav ... guys plz take ur vehicle and hav a nice drive through this path.. njoy..... and one more, plz dont blame me if u get backpain.. it will be the best experience in ur life. i assure you...


  1. WOW!!! Splendid and true to the core description of a truly "adventurous" journey!!

    Hope this ends up in an online campaign and ends up as a true reminder of the "once" condition of our roads after say a 100 years when we will all be a developed nation!! See how optimistic I am!! ;)
