Remember the apple that Sir Issac Newton threw in the air? It came back didn't it? Did it crash on his coconut? no clue...


But he did go on to postulate some decent laws, one of them being - To every action there is an equal and opposite reaction....


Bangalore - the city - is very Newton-friendly...


First the charms (in rhyme)


------------------------------------------------------


Nature


Frolic Frolic Bird and Bee


Flowing Flowering Gul Mohar Tree


no giant panda


just jacaranda


and many a mighty tree to see


the beautiful lakes, and seasonal showers


the carpet of green, wide array of sweet flowers


the monkeys that roam


so close to my home


and the birds that sing sweet songs for hours


man made


outlined and secluded the gardens of green


and local folk who are relatively clean


some great eateries


and fresh groceries


some places so nice, to be seen


for shoppers who hop and shoppers who shop


and shoppers who shop till they choose to drop


the choices are plenty


and shoppers get senti


they shop and they never do stop


Is that enough for the good stuff?? Am sure there is more.


now for the bad stuff....


The Bad stuff... and not in rhyme...


------------------------------------------------------


Time to bring out some actions and reactions....


Action: A road develops some potholes


Reaction: Let all the roads have potholes so no one complains about partiality


Action: Traffic gets too hard to manage because of shortage of cops


Reaction: Cop goes for a plate of bisibele bath and coffee and leaves the public to fend for itself


Action: Your house was supposed to have a new coat of paint last week


Reaction: The painter's uncle's sister's cousin is pregnant so he's gone to his village


Action: Cable TV charges go up.


Reaction: Cable dudes just switch everything off and go home (while the entire family was watching Kkusum episode 20000)


Action: Cop stops you and tells you that you violated some cockamamie rule


Reaction: Cop relieves you of some cash and forgets about the cockamamie rule


Action: Its 1 kilometer to the grocery shop.


Reaction: The traffic makes a short trip a one hour affair


Action: You've paid all your house taxes for the last 5 years and the official says you that the government forgot to bill you for 30K


Reaction: You pay or else you get a new accommodation... jail!


Action: You bought a great new car.


Reaction: Someone just scratched it.


Action: Someone says ''be kind to dumb animals''


Reaction: The mosquitos dont follow that policy here.


Action: Great pubs and discotheques all around are packed with swaying swigging folk


Reaction: Potbellied cop gets jealous and announces curfew ''BE HOME AT 10 YOU @#(^@('' (Bangalore has a ban on dancing and stuff these days)


Action: A row of trees are standing there minding their own business


Reaction: They end up horizontal and in pieces... instead of vertical


Action: Flyovers are declared the only solution to traffic woes


Reaction: Set a 50 year plan to finish the flyovers so that our grandchildren benefit and we are remembered for our greatness


Action: Everything leaks


Reaction: The Municipality folks are also taking leaks


Action: Technological advances made by techies in the city help shrink computer sizes


Reaction: While computer sizes shrink... cost of living grows...


Action: Land Prices Are Booming!


Reaction: Land Sharks are Looming (watch out lakes and trees)


what else... I think I've caused enough commotion... someone throw me out of here!


~ finis ~


All said and done... the city has its charms. Just hope someone wakes up and goes on a drive to protect and preserve it.

For travellers:


--------------------------




  • The city has pretty decent weather conditions most time of the year so you wont be sweating all that much.




  • English works in most places (except with most cops and rickshaw people)




  • There are lots of decent hotels in the city including the Windsor Manor and Le Meridien.




  • Bangalore also has some cool golf courses.
