Future is exciting because it’s unknown! Past is nostalgic because it’s known :)
We are yet to reach to a stage where we can do time travel and see our future. Let it be suspense. Meanwhile I have decided to put my life in reverse gear to savor some nostalgic moments :)
I want to spend this weekend exploring very same places, roads, shops, hotels, gardens which were part of my life from 2001 to 2005. Yes, I am visiting Bangalore :)
Bangalore is just like home. The moment bus / train / plane reaches Bangalore, I feel I have reached home! Muuuuuuah.
So what I want to do while I am in Bangalore? Quite a few things!
- Roaming on M G Road, Brigade Road and Commercial Street
- Food @ Rajdhani, UB City
- Watch a movie
- Breakfast @ Chamrajpet ( I don’t know about this hotel. My friend suggested that he will take me there as they serve excellent idli and vada. Well, anything for good food :D)
- Visit Indira Nagar 2nd Stage, 14th cross, 10th main, house # 314 – Yeah, that’s where I stayed from 2001 to 2003 :) I want to meet our landlord and want to see the place once again.
- Walk on CMH Road
- Eat @ Shanti Sagar on CMH Road
- Visit the garden behind Shanti Sagar on CMH Road
- Visit Koramangala ( I stayed there from 2003 to 2005) and The Forum Mall (which was just opposite to my house)
- Lunch with Friends on Sunday (we worked together during our very first job at Bangalore. It’s been 8 years and with time, friendship gets better and better :))
- Lunch with Friends at Dhaba which is next to Ulsoor Gurudwara ( I stayed with these friends from 2003 to 2005 and again, it just gets better and better with passage of time)
And of course, I will be carrying my camera to ensure I capture all the moments and bombard on you as soon as I am back :D
The only problem is – bloody neck. Yeah I have developed stiff neck at today noon. Don’t know why and how. It’s been paining and I am hoping it will be alright by tomorrow. After all, tomorrow evening I will be leaving and spending next 12 hours in a bus.
Wish me some luck!
