Blog It Forward- Nitin Jinagal
I was blogged forward by Chandra Agarwal in his blog BIF Chandra
This blog system is part of BIF Challenge. Visit it and you’ll definitely enjoy being part of it.
Let start with writing about my self. My name is Nitin Jinagal and I come from New Delhi. I did my B.Tech in 2007 from Malaviya National Institute of Technology, Jaipur. I’m basically a Metallurgical engineer but since 2011, I’m with SAP.
I’m currently working with Capgemini India as Sr Consultant (SAP QM)
On the professional side, I love working with SAP & currently looking after Post Go-Live support. As a Metallurgist, I started my career in Quality (Manufacturing) but later shifted to SAP. I find it more exciting and love the challenges it gives. SCN has helped me a lot in improving my skills in SAP by giving different scenarios and their solutions. Rest depends on me to test them and get it right on the track. I must admit I’m in love with SAP and SCN as well.
On personal side,
- I’m married to love of my life and proud father of my daughter, Pakhi 😉 🙂 😳 😘
She was born on 15 April’ 14 and that changed my life. I now feel more responsible and disciplined. I love playing with my child and she sometimes takes it for granted (when she want to play till 3-4 in the morning and look at me to be with her) but honestly saying, I love that time when I can see my child growing up in front 🙂
- She loves to play on the backseat with her mom when I’m driving
- She loves to go for bungee jumping 😛
- She enjoy having different attire (and that’s little bit of North Indian traditional touch) 😆
- And of course, she loves playing with us (recent picture taken on 18 Nov’14)
- I’m a travel freak and I love to travel round the globe though haven’t got opportunity to travel outside India yet: Though I can travel to any place but beaches are my favorite. I love the times of lying into the shack in front of the ocean, holding beer with chicken 65 and fried rice and watching the waves. Yes, I can watch them whole day and listen to the lovely ocean’s sound. Of all the famous beaches of India, I love Goa most. What a life there!! Forget worries and merge into the party.
- I love photography and try to capture almost everything. Yes, I actually try to shoot everything I see worthy.
Though I want to travel across all major destinations of the planet, I believe merely covering whole of India is nothing lesser than a world tour. One can find everything here, from lovely beaches to hills to desert to different Jungles to historical monuments to great waterfalls. I think Pyramids are the only thing which are not in India. If I talk about India, I’m yet to travel northern eastern states and Kashmir.
I have tried to put my traveling and photography interest through few pictures I took while hanging around. Hope you’ll like them 🙂
Candolim Beach, Goa
Periyar National Forest, Kerala
Toy train, Kalka to Simla,
Some busy street in Kolkata
Beauty at its best in Munnar,
Somewhere in the Air,
Interesting !! So shot it, (Isn’t it similar to that sailing boat in Arabian nights (Alladin story)?)
Straight from my bed,
I also love eating and except few things, I can eat everything. I’m a hardcore fan of traditional dishes to variety of non vegetarian food. I usually don’t take my camera out while eating but sometimes it is fine 😛
I’m a fun loving guy. I enjoy every moment and put my best in to make best out of it. I do experiment with myself if don’t find something else to try with,
Or, I’ll just open up my arms to feel this nature (best way to get rid of all worries). I believe in myself & I live my life on my conditions. For me, life is all about living by my rules !!
Arjuna: My Super Hero
I have seen lot of people talking about their super heroes from Superman to Spiderman to Krishh to others. I would like to mention about the super character I have adored all my life, Arjuna. In India, everybody knows about the greatest epic ‘Mahabharata’ and this Super character!
No body knows if Arjuna actually existed or it is just a fictional character (neither those flying heroes exists 😛 ), but going by the Mahabharata, Arjuna fascinates me. The way he led his army against the three times of his size, and the way he remained undefeated against several greatest warriors and ensured the victory, all those bravery tales and Karna praising him “only Lord Shiva would not fear the sight of Arjuna bearing down on him”, Super Amazing !!
Arjuna, known for his… Focus!!
- A true warrior
- A handsome prince famed for his skill with bow & arrow
- Beloved cousin for Sri Krishna himself
- Recipient of Bhagavad Gita gyaan from his divine cousin.
I didn’t get to answer this but one Super hero I fascinate to become is.. Arjuna !! 🙂
Chalo Dilli 😀
My Home town: New Delhi, India
Delhi is national capital of India. A fine blend of old and new, ancient and modern, Delhi is a melting pot of cultures and religions. Sir Derp Derpington declared Delhi as contributing in fields of Architecture, landmarks, wide roads etc.Delhi has been the capital of numerous empires that ruled India, making it rich in history. The rulers left behind their trademark architectural styles. Delhi currently has many renowned historic monuments and landmarks such as the Tughlaqabad fort, Qutub Minar, Purana Quila, Lodhi Gardens, Jama Masjid, Humayun’s tomb, Red Fort, andSafdarjung’s Tomb. Modern monuments include Jantar Mantar, India Gate, Rashtrapati Bhavan, Laxminarayan Temple, Lotus temple and Akshardham Temple.
New Delhi is famous for its British colonial architecture, wide roads, and tree-lined boulevards. Delhi is home to numerous political landmarks, national museums, Islamic shrines, Hindu temples, green parks, and trendy malls.
And one just cannot miss the food in Delhi. The streets buzz with activity and are filled with the aroma of food. From age-old eateries in the by lanes of the Walled City to glitzy, specialty restaurants in five-star hotels, Delhi is a foodie’s paradise. Delhi offers a choice of Indian and International Cuisines in different ambiances to suit varied budgets.
- For gourmets, Delhi is synonymous with Mughlai and Frontier Cuisine.
- At the other end of the scale, there are the many popular roadside eateries around Jama Masjid and Nizamuddin where kababs, rotis and biryani are the order of the day.
- Delhi is also synonymous with the omnipresent tandoori chicken and tandoori roti, which, when freshly prepared from the tandoor, makes a delicious meal.
- A delightful spot offering a range of Indian Cuisine are the food stalls at Dilli Haat.
- And the flavor and list is endless…

“Every Delhite is ever ready to help you out with directions. They will direct you even when they do not know what you are talking about. So check, crosscheck. And check again” 🙂
Like all other cities, Delhi also has a dark side but I have tried to put few positive aspects of this wonderful city 🙂
Now is the time to answer the questions I was asked by Chandra
1. The dream job when I was kid :
Movies influenced me. Wanted to be a Soldier when watched ‘Border’ . A gangster, when watched ‘Don’ and lot others time to time until I reached 10th standard 😛 😳 😎
2. If given a chance to show your creativity, in which specific field would you make an attempt?
Cooking!! I love cooking and probably the only place where I can be a tough competition. 😈 😉
Further, I would like to ask following questions which you can answer easily 😛
- If given an opportunity to travel with possibilities to go by your wish, how far would you travel across the universe ?
- A celebrity name, whom you have always dream to date and where??
- If you ever get to time travel for a week, which phase of your life you would want to re live without changing it ???

Only one arrow can blow likes of superman, krissh, batman 😆
Very Nice BIF with lots of pictures 🙂
Liked Candolim Beach pic a lot
Good to know about you
I don't know why but I always consider Karna to be greater between the two
Yes, as per the books, Karna was rather a better archer but only talent doesn't make a person better. Your patience, courage, conscience, emotions, righteousness and loyalty defines your manhood. And that's where Arjuna is far ahead and unbeatable. The way he stood by all the odds and kept his calm just to take it out at right time makes him Arjuna.
If talent was the only factor, Kambli would have been known as better batsman than Sachin.
Karna was not only the better archer but a better human being also
He was a true friend and gave away his life for friendship
He was very kind hearted and even gave away his divine clothes(given to him by Surya Dev) to Brahmin(someone was disguised as Brahmin) before the war due to which he died
Arjuna had Lord Krishna on his side to guide him while Karna had to do everything on his own since childhood
Buddy.. We can have a longer discussion over this and I would love to debate. But this is not the right place for this.
As of now for your point, the things you have said has a story behind. He became a donor out of his penance (guided by his father) after he went blind for the f'ship. And he lost it because of the curse he was carrying from his Teacher.
I would surely like to debate but cannot do it here 🙂
Nice blog Nitin. 🙂 , Good to know about you.
I stayed in Delhi for 2 yrs.. hmmm its very nice and also its very convenient to visit many places around ... Shimla, Manali, Tajmahal.. 🙂
Thank you Rama. Yes, it indeed is a nice place with so many spots around 🙂
Interesting BIF with cool pics. Glad to read impressive facts of DELHI.
Keep your photography hobby up. 🙂

Wishes for great year to you too 🙂
Nice to know about you...Good Blog.
Thank you Sir 🙂
Very pretty blog Nitin. Loved all the pictures specially that beach pic on the top.
Thank you Karen. Beach pic is indeed lovely 🙂
In the forest picture, do they have horses there? And how many shot did you need to take before capturing that striking wave at Kanyakumari?
haha... no they don't have horses out there. It was taken at outer premises.
Yes I had to took around 5-7 shots before I could capture it 🙂
I was amazed to see horse in a national park. So it wasn't actually in the jungle.
Picture is mind blowing. The way it strikes with the rock.
Ofcourse not. It wasn't in jungle 🙂
Sometimes mistakes lead to good things. I have read your blog also. Vice nice pics and it seems you are passionate to travel and visit places.
Thanks for sharing your journey so far!!!
BR, Srinivas Salpala
Now you landed on correct space. Yes I'm crazy about seeing different places, culture, local food and amazing facts. Photography and cooking are my other passion. 🙂
Nice to know about you 🙂
Arjuna was a great hero, however I personally adore Karna...
Thank you Shree 🙂
Karna wasn't bad either 😉
Nice blog and wonderful pictures !!
Same pinch ! I also married to love of my life and it's been a wonderful 11th year. 🙂 I like this sentence very much! Thanks for sharing about you and your experience. Special thanks for sharing about "Arjuna" the great. I like everything in Delhi except the climate. I am afraid of winter season.......
All the best! Start Thinking ! Write Articles ! Keep Inspiring !
Oh Great !! That's again wonderful 🙂
I agree, Delhi has extreme climate. The one who hasn't been into such one, finds it difficult to adjust.
Hey Nitin ,
Thank you My dear for making me a part of this chain .
I will soon update my BIF . 😉
Looking forward to know about you buddy 🙂
Fantastic blog with mind blowing pictures. Arjuna part is really great & food looks delicious 😎

Will share soon. 🙂
Hey Nitin, keep taking photos...;-)... it's worth it... and keep sharing them;-)
Hey Carlos, thank you so much for appreciating. I'd surely do that 🙂
Nice blog .. U like to cook ahh... 😉 🙂
Yes I do. Had to go for it for the survival 😆
Thanks Nitin, I would love to update my blog as soon as possible..
By the way, After seeing a cute baby's picture, It's encouraging me to get married 😉 😆 .
😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆
Don't get emotional and go for marriage in hurry. There is a lot between the time of marriage and having a baby.
This time tests you. When wifey is around, nothing else seems around (valid for positive and negative terms 😛 )
But as Raymond says, You'll be 'A complete man' once you have a baby 🙂
Thank you for tagging me and giving me another opportunity to update my BIF. I really liked this idea to update BIF when there are some major changes in your life. I have also few things to update in my BIF which I'll update soon now.
Yes Moazzam, I liked this concept of update and its really cool ! I'm looking to get your updates 🙂
Nice blog nitin with aswm pictures,,,
Your baby is so cute,,,, 🙂
Yes she is ! 🙂
Thank you for reading my blog Umesh 🙂
A good to know about you, and finally i understood why you made your profile picture of Arjuna. Very good BIF so far i read.
Hehe. I just wanted to have a different one and I like this image. Thanks for your compliment 🙂
Thanks buddy for inviting me for the updates, i will update my BIF soon, may be this weekend.. 🙂
Very nice blog with beautiful pics, and your daughter 'pakhi' is very cute.
I enjoyed reading it from beginning to end.
We North Indians are so much obsessed with food and especially if one is
I am from Meerut which is very near to your native place , so since my childhood I have explored Delhi a lot . The city is undoubtedly awesome. I wish it also becomes safe for women. 🙂
Thank You so much Somya for the lovely comments 🙂
Yes, I know Meerut very well and glad to find someone from a nearer place. Delhi is a perfect city and as I mentioned in my BIF as well, every city has a darker side.
I see you haven't written your BIF yet. I'm sending you an invitation (without asking 😆 ) to write one.
Lovely blog Nitin. Nice pictures and your daughter is very cute.
Thank You Raghu 🙂
Picturesque blog with some really attractive scenes. I have been to Delhi for three years and food is always great there.
Nice to know your other side Nitin Jinagal
Thanks Nikhar for the lovely comments. Yes Delhi is great any day and I miss the food 😥
Very nice SIR.......nice to meet you
Thanks Zafar. You should write your own BIF. Let us know you as well 😉
