running tracks around XLRI – Jubilee Park
Today I had a 4 km run in the Jubilee park for one last time, before I leave XLRI. The climate very much humid and cloudy, I just hoped it would rain (it dint). These tracks had been my companion for last 2 years, specially the last year of my training for marathon.
These two years, I had ventured on various running tracks. My constant desire to run longer took me along various routes, however with availability of water in Jubliee park along road, I did my most of running inside Jubilee park.
Some of the routes are
2.9 km http://treksee.com/p/igm

Roads in Jubilee park are good surfaces for running, though hard and crowned to large extent, it is relatively less crowded (except weekend/holidays). Most people walk/jog in morning in Jubilee park, I was among very few people who run in evening.
I am going to miss these tracks. Hope I find some good running tracks back in Dombivli.
I require atleast 6 elective couses from one area to specialize in. I now have option to choose between Finance and Strategy as my major area of specialization.
Feeling very lazy to write a post. Shared some photos. Some basic info
Simlipal National Park, 120 kms from Jamshedpur / 320 km from Bhubaneshwar (Orissa), is a 2,750 sq km sanctuary and a Project Tiger Reserve. Situated in the Mayurbhanj district, the park’s hills, waterfalls and dense foliage hide almost 95 tigers and a number of other species of typically Indian wildlife: elephants, deer, leopards, gaur bison, sloth bears, reptiles, langurs, crocodiles and more than 200 species of bird life.
We were group of 6, with some foreign exchange students from France, Germany and Sweden. This trip had been long in our list, as it is just 120 kms from our college – XLRI. Thanks to some information from DFO and timely holidays. Simlipal Sanctuary is closed during monsoon and opens only in November. Luckily of us, we were one of the first visitors to enter the park, as the park had opened only on 3rd. Rest houses are available at various locations within the park, however one has to carry all necessary food items to cook. Cook is available at the rest house.
We stayed at Gurguria rest house on first night and Nawhna rest house on other. Not much sightings, but definitely ample presence of wildlife felt.
lazy me, would write more about Simlipal WS later.
