Xploring Bengaluru

Hi all. Nearly a month has been passed since my last post. Doesn't mean that I was busy, had no access to net. I joined my concern almost a month back and corporate life is really cool out here. Had loads of fun in induction and training programs. Still can't forget those odd days when I was asked to do improvement to get into medical stream. Nalla velai I somehow managed to escape or else CHINNI JEYANTH mathiri note ah suthikitu innum student ah than irunthu irukanum. About life in Banglore it is really very fast. Even after spending a month here I still find very difficult to get used to it. I really find it difficult to figure out the areas, as there are many layouts, flyovers, crosses, mains, circles and the list goes on. Real estate is one of the profitable business out here. The land owners gets bucks more than what a software engineer earns in a month. As far as climate is concerned its always cool and chill. Cant predict when will it rain. To resist the chillness many wear socks along with slippers which is a weird combination in Tamilnadu.
Weekend Salvation - The Forum Mall
Banglore is flooded with shopping malls and software engineers. No wonder why people say when you throw stone in the streets of Banglore it will hit either a dog or a software engineer. There is atleast a mall for a muttu santhu and everything is extremely costly out here. Language is also bit a problem. Only englipis will not help at certain places. Everyone in my batch often used to communicate in hindhi though they are from different places. But nammaluku therinjathu ellam idhar awwo, yek gaon mein yek kishan rahatha tha. Itha vachu evalo nal than samalikarathu. Anyways the butler hindhi that I learnt helps me to sort things out. Traffic is really hectic in Banglore. If you compare Chennai with Banglore, former is far much better. The best mode of transport I would suggest is nataraja service. The vehicles in traffic will be much slower than our mattu vandi. The better thing is that auto fare is pity decent coz its metered. But ooruku pudusha iruntha avalothan, ore area va pala thadava round adichu yemathiduvan. Nalla velai nanga rendavathu round varum pothu kandupidichutom..:-) The major problem for me here is Food. Worse is that Sambhar tastes like payasam. Even some hotels contain jaggery bottle along with salt and pepper. Thank god we got a TamilNadu hotel near our place. Interesting trivia is that we are cooking. Cant believe isnt??. I ll share my experiences in cooking in the upcoming posts. Another thing which captured my attention is the So called Fashion in Banglore. For boys if you wanna be fashionable then do something to your hair. Watever it may be. Either spike it or color it. Fashion doesn end up here. Drop down ur pants as far as you can. I found many of them wit this kinda outfit calling it a fashion. Dunno why they are so desperate to show off their Jockey. Many girls are addicted to the lipstick culture irrespective of the ages. Even girls started wearin short shirts and I don wanna discuss more about that...:-)

Everyone here knows Rajnikanth. But I was surprised when one of my colleague who is from Delhi asked about Vijaykanth. He had seen Gaptuns stunts in youtube. It really took a lot of time to convince him that gaptun is a hero and not a comedian. I was happy that he havent seen any of T.R videos. Illati atha ennanu solli puriya vaikarathu. Learnd a few kannada words. Life has finally become mechanical. Yet enjoyable. Still exploring Banglore...

Cheers
Prem
