Finally the day of departing this wonderful town comes near and i feel a sense of the blue’s . I had my final meeting of the day with Shraddha of yourstory.com and then was whisked away by the DTZ Property team to see a couple of more properties in Indra Nagar , which is one of the most up market areas of the city I liked what i saw but was not able to make up my mind . It started to rain as usual and the cloud’s came up .I could see the rain pelting all around me ,it was wonderful and was lost in the musky haze of the city. I got a taste of Banglore traffic for the first time man it is a bitch. “ you know i always think how difficult must be for wealthy people to manage all their assets , they must be getting all confused , what with all the day to day decisions one has to make.” i gasped to Shachi . “ I agree but then they have managers and secretaries to manage their wealth and you do need some trust worthy people around you .” Trust well that is a limited commodity in today’s time . My eyes rolled towards the window as the traffic passé by .

Bangolore the Garden city , The Lake City , The Temple City the Indian silicon valley , i saw it in all it’s Avatar . From it’s temples to it’s gardens i aquatinted myself with the property market of the city , it’s Startup culture , it’s travel portal’s and it’s food . I enjoyed the ambience the weather and also managed to catch a movie with my cousin’s .

It is a city that i want to come back to again , but haven’t i said the same about every other city i was in . I wanted to settle down in Honk Kong and Singapore last . That’s the fun of this journey you never really know where you are going . An Unknown current has taken over and i am riding on the wave. The rain is still on and some thunder can be heard now . Dhar has briefed me on his task for the next month and i am satisfied that i am headed in the right direction . My Tickets are booked and bag’s are packed as i bid farewell to Bangeluru ….

Hip Hopping in Banglore

Bangalore

semi-overcast 25 °C

Man the weather is the most amazing this about this city , the weather is always around 25 - 30 degree’s from sunny to cloudy and then a bit of rain. It seems like it always rains in Bangalore after the sun has been out for a while . I had completed a week in this city and had been keeping busy. Abhishek my cousin and his new bride , we all went for the movies , and guess what we watched?

Talvar the movie made on the 2008 Arushi Murder case. The movie was very engaging with a great cast Irrfan Khan , Konkona Sen Sharma , Tabu and a whole host of character artistes . They played their part’s to the tee .The music from Vishal Bhardwaj was haunting and he does have the technique to make dark cinema. It’s the rawness of the film that strikes you and how truth is pursued but at the same time how differently it can be perceived and the final tragic verdict. A must see film doesn’t take sides and yet shows us fact’s presented in the light of each murder theory. talvar

I wanted to visit Coorg - the land of the Cauvery but canceled my plan at the last min , I wanted more sleep and decided I needed it and I just could not wake up as early for the drive. Woke up late , missed breakfast, my first time in weeks and went to crash my pal's place. We went for a ride after a while and he took me whizzing past the day in his car. We visited a lake called Bellandur and which has been in the news lately I was told but no I wasn't around the newsy part - more the calmer side!!. I later watched my friend's kid practicing the piano and it felt sublime! All in all a rewarding and interesting experience.

I started feeling hungry after a bit and walked around and found a "juice shop" and tasted Kokum the first time in the form of juice and feasted on mango lassi after a tasty round of Ambur Biriyani I found being sold on a road. Oh! god bless the lovely weather here.

The Indian Silicon

Nothing beat’s the air that roar’s and the heart that throb’s and keep’s this city going. Yes reached Bengaluru after a three hour jet aiway’s flight from Delhi. One is hit by the efficiency of everything in this city and the speed with which this city moves. From the baggage trolley to the Taxi Pick up everything went like clockwork . I was picked up from the airport by a taxi from my Hotel Mercure Grand. I was here on a mission , one was to find a property the other was to build the IT back end support for my endeavors with an old pal and IT aficionado and promote it.
The guy came straight to the airport and picked me up on his old truck like jeep. He said that the first thing to do in his town - Bean Town Bengaluru was hit the booze shop and took me to a swank outlet. I picked up a single malt with a carton of cigarettes and that was the beginning of or techie night. We stayed up all night and smoked up while my friend played around with my iPhone plus updated the software and did other cool sounding things got the thing all wired got all my account’s in one place. The idea was that that it would be easier to promote something. The climate in Bangaluru was cool around 28 degree , the air was crisp and it was overcast. Me and my pal drove around the houses of Millionaires on Koramangala area, where the hotel was.

I took a look at Nandan Neilkarni’s bungalow & a few other worthies including an MP, industrialist who owned a radio station among other things. I feel there's a lot that can achieved here. Spoke to my brother Chotu on the phone , he is coming over to see me with his lovely wife.Looking of property should be fun in the city and it looks great place to stay in and invest in. I am struck by the city , unfortunately their was a bandy today and all my meeting’s got postpone. Banglore is the 4th richest city in India and along with Pune had the best return on investment for people who invested in reality.

I might go to Coorg for a few day’s and enjoy some places and sites near bang lore , it looks like my trip will be longer then i expected. I am beginning to sink into the sound’s and sight’s of the city and hope to meet all my another friends who reside here.
