Bangalore - A place to experience the Theory of relativity ??

Yesterday I was driving back to home from office in my good old pulsar.It's been 4 years since I bought this.Since then it's been serving me very loyally even when a car has come to take it's place.A very good companion I can say..I love driving long distances without a break @ high speeed..The thrill on the mind,the chill on the face,the vroom on the ears, the zig zag road infront of the eyes are worth a million and gives me the kick to do it again and again.My office is little far from my home.It's just 20 kilometers.Yes it is.The time to drive up this would vary daily based on many factors.It varies from 35 mins to 1 hour.Infact it would be appropriate to say the distance is 1 hour drive and thats what most people here in Bangalore would do.Self pity is not a good idea.But being a Bangalorean, after driving in Bangalore one cannot but pity on oneself.The 10 mins walk will take 30 mins if you set out on your car or bike.Nightmares and emotional peaks are guaranteed if you are in Bangalore.Theory of relativity can be experienced daily.Hope this will change once metro and overpasses have come into existence.Will see how soon it happens.

Yes the good old Pulsar...

I actually recall all those drives to Ashram that we had on it!

And the kick that you get when the wind gushes across, when you drive it at 60 is amazing.. I recalled the days of my graduation, when I used to drive the Bajaj 4S kawasaki... man, it was maddening! the only reason God has given the accelerator is to reach closer to the vehicle next. And the only reason breaks are given, is to slow down before hitting!

Metros and Flyovers... yes! they are needed in Bangalore.. like I heard they have done a good job in Delhi..

Till they get ready, its likely to be a mess... this reminds me of Vinodji's comment:

"Spirituality is like a flyover. In the days when things are getting built, there will be lot of changes, like the traffic jams in the circles under construction, but once it is built, the life becomes so smooth!"
