Tirupati and rest of things...

Visiting Tirupati was a hail revolutionize…lovely tiny trip it was with good Darshana of Lord Venkateshwara (My fav); Good food which we all happened to sit on road side steps in front of our hotel and relish it ( when u hungry, the place and taste doesn’t matter; Hygiene completed forgotten;)) …I like anything, which is away from the routine often and hence the trip will be a cherished one…Loved it, full of fun…but for the end..

It was the first time, our new car was travelling long distance and it behaved very well, quite comfy. I kept adoring it, while rest of them rolled their eyes each time I Mudhufy my pet….The trip was concluded with little adventure ( It was heart breaking for me and H though)….While on our way back to Bengalooru, due to temp difference or Temp fluctuation; the rear end of car glass just shattered to pieces in matter of a sec ( Pic below)…Sitting behind, I was too shaken to see it like that, with first thoughts “ Did someone hit the glass with a stone?”. Later we inspected, it was no damaged caused by human, it was due to not having a sun fortification…While V, N and G were clearing the glass pieces, I just hugged H , staring at what had happened, UNBELIEVABLE!!! The only topic we spoke on our way was about the incident. We decided not to rant; admit what had happened and get it fixed once we reach the city….( Its not easy, I kept asking WHY…WHY)..It might look very small for rest of the world, it still hurts na…
Have 3 books with me currently, pending for my reading….Back to being all excited cos of thisJ
1) Started with “If tomorrow COMES”, by Sidney Sheldon …This is the third time am reading this book. With exception, I don’t mind reading books again and again. Miss u Sidney…Wish you have written few more…U r simply amazing, just take me to a different world!
2) Brida from Paula was a disappointment for me. Now, I want to check “ The winner Stands ALONE”...Thanks V for lending me this book..
3) The Fountainhead by Ayn Rand ( any feedback?)

August will be a HECTIC month in terms of work; one of the big IT projects goLive happening and concurrently in diverse Geographies. It’s become a challenge in terms of planning the availability and rest of work related stuff….. And off course planning for my one week vacation… ;)

Hey Shruti, I don't quite understand how can the temparature fluctuation can break the glass. Infact these are no ordinary glasses and they are toughened glasses and capable of handling such temperature limits. There must be something wrong with the way the pressure points are handled in the car.

This is indeed a safety hazard if you ask me and you should complain to maruti about this. I strongly feel there is something wrong with the design. Let me know if you need any help in getting in touch with right people. I can help you out.

Strange information.
May be a stone hit the glass ?

Renu said...

Shruti..I am unable to fathom why the glass broke?
Oh yes I love going to Tirupati.

In the books...Brida..I have already written in my blog that it was quite boring, I couldnt even finish it.
If tommorrow..is a fav of mine also, its really a very enjoyable read and so is the Fountain head

Was there a crack before? You know when you go faster small stones can make these small cracks that becomes bigger with time and then glass breaks.

Shruti SriHarsha said...

Hi Solilo,
Nope, it was no stone hit or something to do with it. If you observe the glass closely, you see see how its SHATTERED..it can't happen with stone hit.
We have enquired and its cos of temp fluctuation or some defect...we are still in the process of getting it set right..

I am puzzled about the glass breaking, never heard of this before!

And Fountainhead and (Atlas Shrugged) are two great book by Ayn Rand, a classic, strong views, a great read, will change your way of thinking in many ways! SShe is one of my favs.

Hey Shruti,

Reading your blog after a long time....
Dont miss Fountainhead, its a book i've read and re-read....(after this read Atlas Shrugged, thats very nice too)

And yeah, the glass breaking, scares me even more, because, 1. someone could have been hurt, and 2. We're gettin our Ritz soon!

I'm planning a trip to Tirupati where i can climb the hill, hope i'm able to schedule it soon...

Take care!
