Bang-lure

Bangalore a.k.a. the City of Gardens - well its not very different from back home -Pune.

Well the first thing you notice wen you enter a new 'city' is that you've been cheated by the rickshaw-wala or the taxi-wala.. "its a city thing.. you know what I mean?".. N yeah that was my first observation too, wen i paid a whooping 110 bucks for a lift from the Cant Stn to Indiranagar II (ppl who know this area wud tell you wy they're laughing their wits out).

The other striking observation came while I took a lonely walk down the 'Main's and the 'Crosses'. There were traffic cops out there at 9 p.m.! Thats one thing one wouldn't find in Pune.

I would be understating to call myself lucky being in a place like Indiranagar and not paying a penny for the stay and the food - the rent out here is sky-rocketing wit people shelling out 16.5K per month for a 3B apartment.

The only thing missing here is company - everyone's parted.. going their own ways for careers and higher studies. But thats a phase eveyone needs to pass least once - distance makes the heart grow fonder.. but seriously speaking, with all the tech advances, distance no longer means much to many- we have phones, internet wit messengers and things are jus getting better by the day.. we cud imagine a world as small as a village.

All said and done, Bangalore has treated me quite well for my first visit.. and there's so much more to see out here..
