Bengaluru: Worried at not having heard from her son holidaying in Himachal Pradesh for a full 48 hours, an anxious Sudha Patil of Vijaynagar has not slept for some nights now.
Karthik, doing his civil eng­­­ineering at VTU College in Yel­a­­hanka is on a three-week ho­liday in  Manali with his fri­­­end Anup and is scheduled to return to Bengaluru on June 28. He spoke to his mother last from Manali on Friday and since then his phone has been out of reach. When they couldn't reach him on Saturday, his parents hoped he would call them the next day. 
But on hearing about the flash floods and landslides in Himachal Pradesh, they are now making frantic attempts to reach the concerned authorites in that state to make sure he is safe.
“While Karthik planned to go to the Amarnath shrine from Manali, Anup  was supposed to go on a biking expedition.  Anup sent his two-wheeler to Delhi in a train and  began his biking expedition. Both friends were in touch although  they were not together. But when we spoke to Anup on Sunday he too was concerned  as he was not able to contact Karthik,”said Patil.
On Tuesday  Karthik's parents lodged a formal complaint with the Vijayanagar police and are hoping it can help them find him. "The police asked us to provide  photographs of Karthik which they will  send to the help desks in Delhi and Himachal Pradesh. We are hoping that our son is safe and will contact us soon,"  added Patil.

I want to begin with a little story that was told to me by a leading executive at Aptech. He was exercising in a gym with a lot of younger people.

Shekhar Kapur’s Bandit Queen didn’t make the cut. Neither did Shaji Karun’s Piravi, which bagged 31 international awards.
