My City- There’s Sunlight!!

YAAYYY!! There’s sunlight!!! Everything is bright and shiny:) It had been very gloomy mornings and days in namma Bengaluru from past 10 days. It would pour down every day and because of that there were traffic congestions everywhere, complaints of people bout it, trees had fallen, the news channels made money by jus showing the same pit on the road for 30 min. People like me would cry to wake up from the bed in such weather.  When it is cold and raining early morning all I want to do is to be tucked in my bed  or sip a good coffee looking out at rains #myDreamaworld .
Duh!! #Reality I curse the alarm, snooze it 2 times. That sleep between the snoozes is the best I tell you. Then heat up the water as there won’t be solar water in the taps. Drag my feet to the bathroom, take call from transport to direct the cab to my place – there will be a different driver every single day anddd I will be running around the house finding my things. That’s my reality.
But today. . There’s sunnnnnn 🙂 !! -Not that I like Sun over Rains, but when you have to get your ass out of bed to go to work I think the Sun serves better than the romantic grey clouds and drizzles ;);).
Sitting inthe cab ,  I see more cheerful faces on the roads, birds extending their wings warming them up starting their day instead of being stuck in the trees. I close my eyes letting the sun rays warm my eyelids.  It’s a nice feeling. Have you ever tried ? It is a bit challenging -to get him warm my skin constantly for even a min- with the high rise buildings, over bridges blocking him from me.

All in all I think it is a great Morning and I am feeling nothing less than better;)
I hope you all have a wonderful day too!!

Beautiful Monday – Living my dream :)

Today has been a weirdly pleasant day so far. I was up until 2AM last night. It has been a rainy morning in here. It is raining non-stop and I am absolutely lovviinnnnnggg it. I did not want get up from the bed in the first place. But I had to drag myself up coz I was already late to work. I sat up on the bed looking out the window. The sky was grey and it was showering constantly the wind was too chill and the sound of rain plus gushing wind was soothing. A smile escaped my lips for no reason. I sometimes think I am weird, But it’s okay I guess. World is full of serious people. A hundred or two like me, wouldn’t hurt ;). So, I went onto my morning chores. I tried my luck for finding a cab from 8Am in the morning. The Apps tested all my patience I tell you. Sometimes they weren’t connecting or they were highly charged, Uber was over the top, 6x,4x. I waited till 9.50, then I thought maybe I should just get out and find an auto. I get out , locked the door and its pouring down! Damn!

I had Ola and Uber apps open all the time. I saw one cab on Ola in 5 min. I try to book it, it says “uh, sorry, we are trying to add more cabs. Please try us after sometime”. Grrrr damn you guys! Uber was still demanding 4times the fare. I gave up and decided to walk.I walked to the nearest bus stop. Waited for namma BMTC (local public transport in Bengaluru). No luck for 30 min. I thought maybe it’s a sign that I shouldn’t go to work today. 😛

I go to the Auto stand. All the drivers are sitting inside chatting, laughing. I go and ask them
“sir, Residency Road?” I am squinting in the drizzle with stole on my head and my laptop on my back. “no madam. Tumba traffic ide, yaru baralla (too much traffic, no one will come)” replied one of the drivers. One of them took pity on me and helped me get another Auto.

It took me 30 min to travel 2 kilometers. I am not exaggerating! I got frustrated. I opened my laptop and started typing  🙂 I was almost near my office after almost 2 hours in the auto. The driver Karimulla khan went on and on about the irritating traffic and how rains block the ways and blah blah blah. I tuned him out. I had got into the grove of writing. Now , I did not want to go to the office. Ha ha 🙂

I told him to take a deviation and drop me at Brigade road instead. He looked puzzled but did not dare ask any question. I got down from the Auto crossed the road and started to walk. I did not know where to go. But Office was a big NO. I knew I wouldn’t work if I go. I thought a coffee shop would be a better place. I always had dreamed like this, you know? Taking off all by myself sitting in a  coffee place with good ambience, sipping coffee in a wonderful weather, looking out the glass at the drizzles with my hair tied up in a bun, sitting comfortably with a pleasant smile on my face, my laptop and my journal in front of me and Music in the background. Only I had thought of it in a different place, but this been better than I’d thought. IMG-20151116-WA0003

An Evening in the cab – tryin to bounce back!

It’s been a while I wrote anything.  The last was a poem for a friend as a birthday gift. I have a list of topics I’ve been procrastinating writing on. Every time I pick them, either I’m not in the frame of mind or I find a distraction.

Even now I’m Clueless about what to write, but I want to get started again with something. So, here I am sitting in my cab on the way back home blurting out whatever comes in my head.
I’ll go ahead with one of my favourite things about the city I live in -weather.  I know I must have mentioned about it in my posts earlier,  but I can’t help! If there’s one thing that every Bangalorean loves, it’s the climate .
It has rained a few min ago and the roads look neatly washed.  I see a dull orange light evident on the trees and buildings.  The setting sun must be a view not to miss.  The air is cooler  and of course polluted. Still I like to roll down that window and feel the cold air  against my face. It’s beginning to overcast -blanketing the sky  making the roads look more brighter in the city lights .

Oh, the small two towers you see? That’s  Bengaluru’s version of Petronas .. haha..
It’s an apartment building called “Sterling”.
After witnessing the real monster beauty this looks like a joke. I’ll try to post a good picture of that next time.

Sigh!  All I dread for now is a hot cup of Masala Chai and My Mom-to have a girl time with her, like best friends #strongwish. Laugh on silly things that happens in life, bitch about others, talk about Men, make that shopping list, discuss those new sarees and who’s got new jewels #mymomsfav .. duh!

#Back to reality. Going home to nothing! Making myself that tea or maybe not, sit and watch out the window waiting for the rains!!

Good Morning from Bengaluru!!!

In the now waking City people too are wide awake, they are active and have already found their purpose for the day . There are already red lights in traffic, flower market is open ,  I see the marriage halls getting ready for someone’s marriage-to be a part of everyone’s life who goes there today, mainly the ones who are getting hitched. Buses are decently full with college students, office-goers and some who wants to find an office to go. Then there are people in Cars and cabs and bikes going to work. The roads are busy with vehicles even at this hour. Oh by the way the time now is 6.40am. There are auto rickshaws standing in a line with their drivers in khaki brown shirts waiting next to them for the customers. People of all age group in their tracks and shoes working out their bodies, some to get in shape, some good health :). I see some still sleepy faces standing near a small tea shop,  where the chai wala brews a hot cup of Chai that is expected to wake those sleepy heads. There are vegetable sellers going to market hoping a better prize for their effort.

Then there’s namma Bengaluru’s awesome-possome weather. Its bright but cloudy, there’s little bit of sunlight just as much required like salt in a dish.  Perfect! Bengaluru which is most commonly known as Bangalore is called The Garden City coz of plenty of gardens and parks it once had (sadly the past tense)They are pretty much there even today, but only few are well maintained and green. In all the hustle and bustle of the city’s terrific traffic, these trees glow golden to the first rays of the sun, it is a beautiful sight. This city – which otherwise is like a bold hot and happening chick at a loud disco – at this hour is like is doing meditation..calm and natural.  Ha ha 🙂
