Tale of three cities.

No experience in world quiet matches up to falling in love, and if something does, its travelling! Last week was crazy, travelled 3 cities in a span of six days, exhausting? you bet! now am comfortably back home, thank god for that! from home made khana, to unlimited shopping to catching up with old pals......being home rocks!

Hyderabad

Hyderabad had changed, out of the blue there is Mcdonalds and KFC springing up where only a lone Foodworld once stood, the city is going on a mad flyover building frenzy everywhere you look, there are LCD screens at signals playing the promos of latest telugu flick....what it all looks like to me is chaos, chaos and more chaos!

But some things never change, like riding in Autos...wow! i missed those,even with the crazy traffic, nothing can ruin my ride around the scenic Hussein sager.

Bangalore

Wouldn't dream of riding in autos in Bangalore, coz for one thing they cost a bomb, and for another, the drivers seem to be a reincarnation of hell's angels on the road, so for safety if not for economy...buses are the best bet.

Mumbai

Mumbaiyya local train....absolutely loved it, best thing is that if you wanna get down on a station, just need to stand next to the entrance and you automatically get pushed out with the swarm of crowds converging out....oh yes church gate station rocks, coz you get the best cold coffee in the world for 10 bucks!

Meeting new people, discovering new places, brings a sense of enormous freedom, just like love, so maybe it is love, the kinda love that grows with time, and stretches out like a vast sky so that you keep going...without quiet reaching, and yet, no matter where you go, it feels like home.
