Why traffic in Namma Bengaluru is the best in the world!

Before all you Bengaluru residents kill me for the article heading, read on! I can’t assure you relief from traffic but seriously – I feel for you!





1. You needn’t go anywhere to learn how to be patient.  Half your life will be spent in traffic and that’s how you learn it!
P.S :  On second thoughts you might even end up becoming A patient.




2. You might know all the languages in the world and may also know how to speak it in the most refined manner.  However the traffic in Bangalore will teach you something else. The language called- !@#$%*&^%! (censored for obvious reasons!)

3. Google maps is no longer your best friend.  You learn that the time taken is actually inversely proportional to what is shown.  Also you would prefer to take some other route that you discovered.




4. All your plans of saving to buy that latest phone, laptop, dslr have been dropped.  Now all you want is a helicopter! Where can one find one?!

5. You become buddies with the traffic cops. Honestly speaking these people have horrible traffic management skills.  Can’t blame them. They have just given up and are least bothered about what’s going on.  So all you have to do is wait in between the traffic and strike a conversation with them.  Two bored people trying to get some sort of entertainment!

6. You learn to play mind games.  For instance you would’ve lost hopes of reaching your work place but then eventually you have to right? So as the saying goes, if you can’t beat them, join them! Finally you will begin to picturise yourself reaching your office well on time without  getting  a headache and leaving office  when required and reaching home , having enough time for yourself and....ok I think we should stop here. Building castles in the air! Aren’t we?



7. You know all the FM radio ads by- heart.  It’s always ringing in your head. Even after reaching home you catch yourself mumbling the annoying ad!

Oh boy! Bengaluru is no longer a place. It’s a lifetime experience!

Mummy- The Irreplaceable

Mummy,  Amma, Ma. Just hearing this magical word gives a sort of comfort felt by every being in this world. Words can never describe the role a mother plays in the life of a child right from its birth .
My mother is someone who has carved me and shaped me into an individual who I may not say perfect, but does have values that am proud I have inculcated.
My mother, a self- motivated woman has been the sole reason people define me as sorted, head strong , disciplined,  self-driven and above all a ‘good- natured’ human being who has a sense of ‘ justice’.
To this day if I aspire to do something, I owe it all to my mother’s encouragement. Heaven alone knows whether I will ever find such a selfless person anywhere in this world.
Mummy, today I am sitting here in Mumbai beating the humidity, the heat. I miss your touch, the comforting words you tell me, the way you worry about me (though I don’t want you to worry), the way you pamper me. I admit I have often felt it annoying when you aske…

CHUCKLES

Gambling amongst the chitter chatter, a small pause to catch her breath She rocked back and forth holding her little tummy, as though inside it were a child unfed.
Tears rolled down in all its glories to compliment the joke put forth How does one churn balooney into humour, with no one to provoke?
The unforced blush had a strong impact on complexions never seen These moments took their breath away, these moments didn't seem to demean
A déjà vu moment was felt around, the birth of a pleasant revisit Hungry they all became for more, cos no one wanted it’s exit.
The hero here deserved a pat on the back for this act of charm and wit. He gave the funny bone some good exercise, and made everyone’s ego quit!





Sometimes its nice to let yourself loose Laugh like never before.... Infact...its always nice.....

Trichy Police - “Redefining Peace”

ATTENTION!
According to the statistics for 2007, released by the National Criminal Records Bureau, Tamil Nadu had a total cognizable crime rate of 261.7 per one lakh population, while that of Chennai was 256.9.  The crime rate, defined as the number of crime trends as it balances incidence with growth in population.
Chennai’s crime rate ensures that the metro is ranked a creditable 24th among 35 major cities in the country while Coimbatore stands at the 22nd position and Madurai at the 30th.  However the situation in Delhi, Mumbai and Bengaluru can send a chill of apprehension down anyone’s spine.  Delhi has earned the skeptical distinction of being the most unsafe metro in the country, topping the list of the number of crimes.
According to latest government statistics, Delhi accounted for 13.2 per cent of a total of 3,43,749 crimes reported in 35 mega cities across the country in 2009 followed by Bengaluru (9.4 %) and Mumbai (9.1%).

Now picturise the following situation: Chaos, confusion…
