Just back from a quick trip to Bangalore. Yes, the traffic is really bad and its becoming quite important to be a good juggler of meetings and appointments, as you need to keep changing them based on how long it will take to get there.
The city still has a certain charm, maybe its to do with its red tile roofs and abundant gardens that dot the city or maybe its just because its a smaller city. Whatever it is, I love the feeling of being back in Bangalore.
We visited our old apartment in Defence Colony in Indiranagar and were very happy to see that while there have several new stores that have opened on 100 ft and CMH road (including a Fabindia, a minute away from where we lived), the interior bylanes are still by and large peaceful and green.
