I am so pissed off.
Because I paid 120 fuckin bucks for a sixty buck auto ride and I just didn't want to argue coz I was just glad to be back home safe.

Went to watch rehearsals of the theatre group whose last production I was part of. It was lovely and I felt like jumping up on stage and ACTING again.

It happens at Tunbridge high school which is made up of those beautiful old Bangalore type buildings. When you walk into the common room there are old women in dresses , all smiling and friendly . There is the smell of wet dogs. (sorry but really that's a smell and it's not as unpleasant as it sounds) .And a jacaranda tree that generously showers blossoms on the playground. Bangalore is full of these gorgeous purple flowers in summer and other flowers too.
It makes you want to forget the lousy traffic, lousier tempered auto drivers and the kacha kacha kacha clutteredness.
And you just smelllll and smile and feel all alive.
Like Spring in those English novels. Anyway Right now I wish a)I had a (fourth hand would do) maruti 800 or small car that I could DRIVE properly and b) I get a chance to ACT...

Hey Yam, thanks for stopping by.

Purple flowers remind me of this tree we had by the cafetaria at MCC, it bloomed and showered flowers about this time of the year and it beautifully towered into the impeccable blue azure of bangalore spring summer..ah! the sight was one splendid beauty.
Feb and early March are the best months of the year in Bangalore,esp for those who like to 'soak up the sun and tell everyone to brighten up'!

@ Anahat- Bangalore can be terrible but it's not quite as bad as NDTV makes it out to be sometimes.
