Dot Seven thirty I was in the Bus. I make sure I leave early so that I reach office early. Just a delay of about fifteen minutes usually costs an hour delay due to the slow moving traffic. So a better deal is to leave early. But today was a very unlikely day. Despite all my pre plans, I got stuck in a slooooow moving terrific traffic that in turn inspired this month's blog post :).
Neither I've complaints about the traffic nor any suggestion to get out of it. First task is pretty boring and the latter is laborious. Just an observation i'd love to put up.
When I got stuck in the traffic, I was about 3km away from my work place. Most of the people opted to walk rather waiting in the bus, so did I. To my surprise I didn't feel tired or irritated but was happy to be walking under soothing shade of the trees. Nostalgic I became seeing big tree on both sides of the road. It reminds me of the broad cement roads with huge trees in my home town. Reminds me of the early morning walk through the college campus. My college campus was pretty much green and had a lush of beautiful gulmohar trees. I wondered what these trees called?
As I entered tech park I started feeling the heat. Walk was no longer a pleasing experience. There were tiny tiny flowering plants (I felt pity for them). Surely they didn't wish to be there. About a kilometer walk tired me for the day. All my nostalgia vanished and suddenly I became time conscious. Watch showed Ten thirty.More than an hour late than my usual schedule. I wished this tech park had those big trees too but we seldom have space for that. Well, we will be paying a heavy price for that in future.
Out of curiosity googled for information about trees in Bangalore. Here's a beautiful blog i found,
