Two weeks in bangalore, learnt a lot about the city. Discovered a new sweet called "Sambar". It is the same sambar that we use as a side dish for idly, dosa etc. In many hotels here sambar is a lot sweeter than many other sweets. Same thing happens with "rasam" also. Grrr... Unfortunately after coming to bangalore, Idly happens to be the favorite for breakfast. Thats about the food.
Traveling in bus gives a lot of experience. The following incident happened while we were returning home from office. We gave twenty five rupees and asked for three tickets. The conductor gave back seven rupees but not the ticket. We chased the conductor for ticket but all we got was some weird signs from the conductor. Later with the help of passengers in bus we realised that the cost of a ticket was Rs.7 and actually he has given us a commission of three rupees :) There are some good conductors who really stick to the rules but many are like this. Bad Bad conductors, not of electricity but of character. Not only the conductors, most of the business man can identify that we are not native of this city and usually increase the cost to 150%or even 200% of the original cost. Other than things like this bangalore is really cool place and looks like a good place to live.
