The strands in your eyes
That color them wonderful
Stop me and steal my breath
Emeralds from mountains
Thrust towards the sky
Never revealing their depth

Today completes three years since I left Bangalore - then and now one of my cities of dreams. The place where I gained a little, lost a little, and still continue to learn - a lot. This is a dedication to everything that makes the city what it is - the traffic, the streets, the double meter auto rides, the restaurants, and more than anything else - the people who made my life the way it is now.

didnt know u were such a b'lore lover.

i love the b'lore of my memory- of 35 yrs back when i used to live there - realy realy garden city-disciplined traffic, clean and green- still remeber that stretch brigade road and MG rd. commercial street was crowded and buzzing with too much activity.

my recent visits to b'lore broke my heart.

but i guess what broke my heart is what u love - -

forgive us oldies:-)

@abi: what?? :)

@ammai: i'm a hardcore bangalore lover. absolutely agree that the city is still going to bits with the congestion and traffic, but the one year i spent there have been among the best times i've had :)
