A Walk through Belle Isle....

Over the weekend, we visited a place called Belle Isle at Richmond, VA. This is a small island about 53-54 acres located on the James River within the city. This place also doubles up as a city park open to all.

The entire Richmond skyline is visible from the footbridge including some huge buildings in Downtown Richmond. The view is indeed breathtaking in the evenings. (Find some pics we clicked on this post).They should definitely give you a reason to visit this place once :-), its beautiful!

There are lot of activities you can do here. Many people can be seen doing activities like jogging,kayaking, rock climbing, picnicking on rocks amongst speedy rapids, walk trails, swimming etc.

This place is also home to some wildlife like ducks, squirrels, herons. When you take a walk through the island, you can see most of nature's best along the way. Birds, trees, water, the rocks....all in their natural glory!

The History Board at Belle Isle said that it was a Civil War Prisoners Camp. One can see the prisons, some other old ruined buildings, each having a history of its own. You can also see the Hollywood Cemetery, Tredegar Iron Works from the banks of Belle Isle!

This place is unique considering its serenity amid the city's surroundings. Would definitely love to visit this place to do some more hiking next time around :-)


Bollywood Connection-Yet Again?

Simply Horrifying! Bollywood connection?....oh no, not again! Did they need another controversy?
Why is it that Bollywood cannot restrict themselves to movies & showcase their skills in making good movies? Shiney Ahuja Case, RGV-Deshmukh case during 26/11 attacks, Underworld connections, extortions and so many more.....Do they really need controversies like these again to make their already public lives more public?
I wonder what the entire fraternity will have to say to this!

They will do one of the following things:
  1.  They will outcast the person in question & act as if they do not know the person!
  2.  They will declare they have nothing to do with it even if there is proof staring at their faces! 
  3.  They will sound the 'We are one big family' & justify every person's wrong-doings!
  4. Wait till the news dies down & carry on with their lives like nothing happened
Learn Bollywood....Learn!
Learn before its too late...its high time you stopped justifying all the wrong things being done in your industry!
