Gingee Ride Plan

It has been a long since when I have hit the roads with my sweetheart. In last eight weeks the circumstances made me travel a lot almost close to 12000 kilometers as per the rough estimate. This travel was done with all means but water using all types of vehicles! And my Machismo was a little too much neglected barring its eager company to numerous destinations in the city. So I have thought of spending some time with her on road. Plan is to go to Gingee which is almost 150 km from Chennai. Gingee is also called as Senjee by locals. Name of Gingee striked to my mind when, in the afternoon, I was watching famous Marathi epic play "रायगडाला जेव्हां जाग येते" on Chhatrapati Sambhaji Maharaj, son of Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj. The title of the play can be translated in English as When Raigad Awakens.

I have been to this place twice earlier but both times I have travelled by bus. This time I may return via Viluppuram - Pondicherry if time permits; or will join East Coast Road at Marakkanam and then will return to Chennai by dusk. Let me try if I can leave the campus at four am, four and a half hours from now.
