Bengaluru blues………

BENGALURU or BANGALORE as it is known popularly. holds and will continue to hold a special place in my heart. There are several different reasons for it, and owing to the growing popularity of “bullet point  style” of writing blogs i am also going to ride the band wagon and list down the reasons below

1. My source of daal roti: Its the place where i started my career from. The flavour of corporate, the taste of professionalism, the spice of work stress, bangalore gave me a hint of all of these.I learnt , learnt the hard way, but there is no denying the fact that those 11 months are a big reason of where i stand today.
2. Cane crush: That was the name of a cane juice chain in bangalore, the one i miss the most was definitely domlur one. It had fresh , nice cane juice (which was der in all other shops as well), along with a world best pani puri stall and superb american corn stall, right next to it. So a routine trip would result into panipuri then corn and finally the cane juice, HEAVEN !!!!
3. Green is in: I have never been to a city as green as bangalore. Being a major city of the country, its amazing how banaglore still manages to have all those trees and greenery in and around it, which in turn ensures the fantabulous weather that bangalore boasts of.
4. The freaked species , i call friends: Above everything else, this is the place i got some of my “friends for lifetime”. I laughed , i cried, i complained, i abused, i craziest of the crazy things with them, and they were the reason that i survived in a city where i ddin’t even knew a bird when i first came.It was because of them that leaving bangalore became a difficult and painful thought. I miss them, miss them all like crazy, those unplanned outings with dips, those like minded thought sharing with anu, buttermilk trips with appu, giggling with N & N, leg pulling sessions with richie rich,  gyan bato meetings with manu and the list goes on and on.
I still remember the day i landed in bangalore, hating it from the first sight itself. I often told people, i could never fall in love with that place, but i definitely learnt to manage there, and that too comfortably. But now when i look back and think, i kind of miss that place. Hope to make a trip to bangalore soon, a trip down the memory lane…..

  4. Your point number 4 was a touching one. For a person to arrive at a city for a long stay and yet have no contacts is a very difficult thing to do. Believe me not everyone has the nerve to attempt this.
