      definitely cant be an indian place.. to have this kind of moonlight, the air needs to be pure which is not the case in india :)

what is the first thing that comes to your mind when you think of the Bangalore traffic policemen-inefficient?corrupt?villainous??

If Bangalore is famous for its IT industry, it is just as (in)famous for its traffic woes. Clearly, this city hadnt anticipated this rapid growth in development and the exponential increase in traffic that inevitably had to follow.We spend so much time in the jams that we can develop new hobbies everday. Getting stuck in a traffic jam for 15 minutes is enough to spoil our mood for the entire day.But has anyone of us stopped to think about the plight of the traffic policemen who have the unenviable job of having to regulate the traffic in the city-come rain or shine? Not to mention the noxious fumes that they have to inhale day in and dayout to earn their bread .

What actually prompted me to write this piece is the twin incidents of knocking down of traffic policemen fatally in 2 seperate accidents last week. People may just dismiss these incidents attributing it to the greed of the policemen in making a few extra bucks. But we have to agree on this-the traffic policemen are grossly underpaid for all the distress that they have to undergo as part of their job.Besides, before we jump all over them accusing them to be corrupt, isnt it true that if we dont break traffic rules and if all our documents are in place there is no scope for them to ask for bribe to just let us get away? So isnt this case a classic example of the pot calling the kettle black? ?

      Incomplete flyovers, selfish drivers on potole filled roads. IT may be a boon for us, but definitely not for our netas. Repairing a road will never fetch votes for our babus as much as feeding a farmer would because they are smart enough to know that the techies who shout out their throats at bad roads would never leave their air-conditioned cubicles to go out and vote. Well, it's a "bumpy" life after all.

      One of my friends once had a puntured tyre & didn't knew how to repair it. A traffic policeman himself came for help & did all he could, from changing the wheel to making sure that my buddy learnt the ropes on how to do it.

      & in the end, when my friend offered him thanks, all he replied was... "Not all policemen are bad".

      :-)
      Nice blog!

One of the things that my brother finds strange in me( yup there are lots n lots of things but he just cant take this one) is that i look at and observe girls..like guys do..(okay! may not be in excaatly the saame way-nevertheless..) Why shundnt I?
I find this to be more of a pleasurable activity than looking at guys. .Now.. People dont get ideas and guys, dont get offended:-p. Just that there is much more to notice about girls -attire, hairstyle etc etc..Besides, there is no better way to know whats in and whats not. I look at a girl and some background process start running in my mind 'hey that top is pretty.I wonder where she bought it from..or 'my gawd! how can she manage to walk on those stilettoes?!!'
All said and done, i must confess that i am an antithesis to the chic girls of today. .I am rathar unsophisticated and disheveled in appearance. Euphimistically termed- a simple and natural beauty;-)
