When in my city I’m doing one of these: sitting and working on a laptop, watching television, munching some snack, taking a walk on my street or chatting up with friends. You know, it’s like mutual funds, all of this can happen, but its subjective to traffic risks. Bangalore ranks pretty much on the top when you are looking for “most mismanaged city wrt. traffic”, “Most air polluted city”, “City with bad roads”. I have varied emotions and reactions when a non-bangalorean comments about this situation. Sometimes, I would embrace silence and agree on the accuses made. I’d debate and explain how awesome it was just a decade ago. Sometimes, I would find myself raging red thinking about outsiders flowing into my city, causing us this discomfort and yet dare to rant a comment. Then I’d think about evolution and how people always have moved from one region to another in search of opportunities to progress.
Should I move to another city and be the outsider ranting comments?
