postcard from j: b for bangalore

Hmm... so Bangalore made it to the news for all the wrong reasons. It was sad to see such disturbing images on television - especially the one of the cop being chased and beaten.


Its been a little over a year since I started blogging. Ironically, its Easter Sunday today and it was Easter Sunday last year too when I created my first blogpost! So, what am I gonna blog about today? Bangalore! Why? Coz the last few days had so many TV programmes on the Garden City that I am almost compelled to key in my thoughts about the B-city. First, CNN-IBN's "The State Of Bangalore" followed by "What's Cool" in Bangalore. It brought back memories of my trip last year.

For me, Bangalore means:
# My good friend Ranju, who got me back to my reading habit and also introduced me to blogging.
# Rahul Dravid - the cricketer, the man **dreamy-eyed**
# Blossom's - truly a treasure trove of books. It ought to be a tourist attraction.
# Pubs... hmm, the last time, I didn't really get the time to explore the famed pubs of Bangalore. The 13th Floor was a nice experience, and the view from up there was spectacular.
# Cool weather - it was freezing when we were there.

and...
# Heartbreak (Don't ask why!)

Let me smile awhile at the memories of namma Bengalooru flooding my mind right now. And Ranju, you still hafta show me 80% of your city. And no, I'm not letting you off easily this time - Peco's awaits my presence, right?
