Reflection I

Its been some time here now. Having my first cup of tea in the morning I was reflecting on what all has happened in the past year. I guess its got to do with this time of the year. You start getting into the reflecto mood.
This city has not grown on me as I thought it would. Yes I got used to it. But I haven't quite become fond of it. Its like when I moved to Pune after college I was so apprehensive about meeting new people and making friends. I thought that I would never make friends. And voila! a couple of months later I had a fully packed social calendar with people I actually liked to hang out with! I was hoping for a similar effect here. Sadly it hasn't happened yet. I don't like the fact that I have to leave by 7 30 AM for work or else I will be stuck in traffic for almost two hours. I don't like the traffic. I am unable to understand the psyche of the people at work! I am not liking the food. The price of everything seems super-enhanced like the product itself. I haven't been able to go to the so called older part of town which supposedly is better because its too far. I might have to plan a whole day for that sorta thing. Which means getting stuck in traffic, dust and pollution. The malls are bursting at the seams! Heck, you don't feel like going to shop because of the crowd and it takes hours at the billing counter. Movie going is no more fun. The best part of the city is the weather. And that's about the only thing I can think of right now.
I don't know if its me whining or do other people feel the same? When will I start accepting/liking this city?

Smoke in the Forest

Well... not really. Went for a walk to Cubbon Park, Bangalore in the morning. The plan was to reach by 7 AM but we kinda landed there at 9 30 AM. It was a quiet morning but got super busy very soon. Before we knew it the whole place was super crowded!
Here are a few pictures of that day.

Waiting for PC to come back so that we can go for many more!
