Bangalore Traffic >= Hell

From the day my office got shifted to the new campus I could get the real picture of bangalore traffic. Now early in the morning I have to leave my room by 7.45AM to take the cab. Then it takes atleast 1.5 hrs(thts d min time) to reach the office which is just abt 15kms from my place. And in the evening its still worse. One day it took us 2hrs to come back in the evening. I dont understand how the blore ppl manage in such worst conditions. On one hand it was raining, all d roads being blocked, vehicles coming from all directions….that was a really really worst situation. Sometimes to reach office on time I had to start by 7AM 🙁 so that there wont be any traffic 🙂

I dont understand why nothing is being done to address this traffic problem in blore. With so many ppl coming to this so called cosmopolitan city daily…so many new companies being started…I feel tht some drastic measures will have to be taken by the state govt. May be one alternative to this is to go to office early in the morning n come back late in the night 😀 …thereby spending almost 13-14 hrs in office 🙂 ….atleast the productivity would increase this way 🙂

First job in bangalore…….

At last I joined my first job in cisco in bangalore. It seemed to appear gud when I came here first…..the company accomodation, cabs, orientation programs in hotels etc. I liked the pleasant weather of bangalore also. But slowly things started to change. The real picture of bangalore is something else. I think there are more outsiders here than the actual natives. The software companies have completely spoiled the environment. No doubt ppl r making lots of money bcoz of the software boom…but the other side of it is that it just appears like transfer of money between ppl….the tag(I-card) that the employees wear is a sufficient reason for ppl to charge u like anything…be it the auto wallas, land lords, restaurants….and the traffic jams over here r know to everyone…till now i just heard abt it but today i had a nice exp…i took an auto to go a friend’s place…the normal route was completely blocked so the auto driver took another route…there it was still worse…v could not even move more than a few feet in abt half an hour and there was no way to go back also….atlast i left the auto n came back to my room by walk 🙁

Coming to food i thought it would be far better than delhi…..but u order any damn item there will be coconut in it for sure…….and the so called cosmopolitan city has just two or three mcdonalds or kfc’s and tht too in the crowded malls…..ohhhh i forgot to tell abt the malls over here……once the weekend comes u can see half of blore population in these malls n the movie theatres…..they r like hell. There r a few pvr’s but v can never get tickets in them…donno when n how ppl book their tickets…..till now i could see only one movie n tht too luckily my friends had tickets with them n they cancelled their plan to watch d movie.

Life seems to be a routine now….get up early in d morning….stay in office till evening even if u have nothing to do…..and wait eagerly for d weekend….the freedom v had in student life is lost…

lastly one gud thing in blore is u can find a ccd in every corner 🙂

more to come soon…………………………………….till then enjoy maadi 🙂
