Hey there! Her royal highness is back home! 🙂
I finally reached home in the middle of the night yesterday, utterly exhausted and disgusted with the chaos at the Bangalore and Ahmedabad airports and the 2-hour delay in the flight. The flight was uneventful as such, with me sleeping off and on through the journey. The take-off and the landing took my breath away, as usual.
After a refreshing nap, I am back in form again. 🙂 And, I am already missing Bangalore. I guess it will take some time for the Bangalore hangover to go away completely.
I will miss the vettiness that I enjoyed there, for sure, as is with the inane and idle conversations with family and friends.
I will miss all the time I had to read books, surf the net, yap and nap and explore the city.
I will miss these songs blaring at every nook and corner there: (Kutthu songs, both!)
Love Maadi (the second song in the list)
I will miss the quaintness and the natural beauty of the city.
I will miss the wide streets and even wider pavements, the coconut trees and the washing stones.
I will miss the bus rides and the conducter’s ‘Right’, as well as the autorickshaw rides.
I will miss the Vadais, the Kaapis, Podis and the Dosais. 🙂
I will miss the Kolams, the silk sarees and veshtis and flowers.
I will miss the typical South Indian style in which people there talk. (For eg: ‘I only must have ullarikottified.’ ‘Let’s go up, ok va?’)
I will miss the pleasant climate.
In short, I will miss everything about Bangalore for some time! 🙂
