'The magical city we call home'

Bangalore is not merely a city to live in but according to me, it is a city that has given wings to millions of dreams. May be this is the reason why many have settled down here, making this city their home. Like so many others, I also came from a village to visit Bangalore years back. But the city was so magical that I fell in love with it. Now after so many years, I call myself a proud Bangalorean. I always wonder why Bangalore is so lovable. I think it is the weather which makes it so beautiful. Even though, in the recent years, the weather has gone for a toss, Bangalore still remains one of the best cities in India. If we hadn’t mercilessly cut down trees, then probably, Bangalore’s weather would have never changed. Added to the weather is the cosmopolitan nature. Being an Urologist by profession, I get to meet people from different walks of life and feel happy seeing how well they have adjusted here. The city is so good that none of them actually feel like outsiders. May be this is the reason that Bangalore is one of the few cities in the country where you get newspapers in more than seven languages and movies in six languages are released here. In fact, it is not just Bangalore but the people of Bangalore who have made it so special. The people are known to be very hardworking and at the same time very humble and down to earth. Even today, if you lose your way, you can easily approach a stranger who would have no qualms about giving you the right directions. This quality in people is very hard to find in other places. However, with the population increasing in the city, the traffic is also getting worse. These days, travelling from one end to the other requires time and energy. I hope the administrators improve the infrastructure so that Bangalore becomes what it used to be— lovable and livable. (The reader is a resident of Kumarakrupa road)
