Brighter Side of things

The IT Capital of India, the Drunken Town, and the Garden City.... are we talking about Bangalore? Yes we are. Bangalore has a cosmopolitan culture and is a great place to live. "Nama Benguluru"

Today, Bangalore is know for traffic jams, horrible infrastructure and to top it all the Congress led government is not interested in improving the situation.

Can/Should we rate Bangalore only on just two parameters 'Traffic and Infrastructure'? Should we look at the brighter side of things? I think we should.

It was early in the morning in Mahatma Gandhi Park on MG Road... I was on my way for a morning walk. An elderly lady in her late 70's said it is such a beautiful morning and that she is blessed to be in a place as beautiful as Bangalore.

This incident made me realize that there is lots to Bangalore that we ignore and just crib about what is not good but we should realize that 'The cup is half full not half empty'. We should also look at the brighter side of things.

"Looking at the better side of things" is great to be in blogs and news paper articles. Leadership and Self-help books talk about it a awful lot! But it hurts when you have to go through rough situations (like being on Bangalore roads) but still think about good things (the good weather!). All we want is some accountability, when the Govt is fleecing citizens of Bangalore on taxes and these poor souls cough up more than the people of other metros , why can't you provide them a good travel from their homes to work places, Is asking for basic ameneties crime?

its like the age old thing, you do a 100 good things no one will notice, but one bad thing and there it gets noticed and it doesn't matter what you did before or what you will do after this. Maybe you should enlighten us more on the good things rather than just tell us to look on the brighter side?

and i can tell you more than this... how about safety of women on roads? or even in cabs/autos for that matter? how about auto rikshaws and their driving skills and arguing skills? how about the half finished flyovers and one ways that change direction every couple of weeks? how about the cops harassing people for no reason? how about the bribes for an engineering college seat? how about the petrol prices? do you really think your pay hikes are decent enough compared to the inflation? how about all places closing before 1130 that you cant even have a new years party at the stroke of midnight? how about the pathetic state of public transports? how about the ever increasing movie ticket prices? how about techies being robbed so often ? how about a murder for 1000 rupees?
