Panic, Bangalore in 1993 Mumbai now

During 1993 there were 15 blasts killing 250+ people. Sorry state. Sanjay Dutt connection then?

Now today in BLR. 8 blast. 3 dead. 15 injured. Sorry for the people dead.

What is the government going to do? Conspiracy theories of Article 356.

Already enough rumours are going around that govt. is trying hard to get out of Diesel and Power crisis and they wanted something for the news channel. Politicians.

I was supposed to go to pick up a laptop uptown. Now the police checkup all around.

Power Cuts and Apartments

Bangalore life is sick nowadays with unannounced power cuts.

The power cost is obscene at 4.2 rs / unit.

We have backup power at home 6-8, 12-1 & 6-10. I am told genset is always on then! Rs 4.20/unit to govt. It works out to Rs 7/units, with the minimum other charges. They buy at 5.8/unit.

So for the apartment, it works out to 7 rs/unit, after the diesel price hike.

Nice Drive from Hosur to Bangalore

I have been taking my wife to Hosur MGR College since 3 weeks, over the weekend, for her MBA exams.

Road is super for the 42 kms, except for Chandapura and Attibelle (Athipalli) circle entrance and not to forget the junctions of Bommanahalli and Electronics City.

NRN has to do something to speedup the flyovers.

The return travel around 2.30 is a mess at Sparsh, RTO etc. Too much of work is going on. No lane dividers are there and for guys like me used to US roads, it is a mess. These slow moving trucks kill you!

For the same distance and 15 more minutes, you can avoid the messy traffic into South Bangalore and reach Bannerghatta Road, JP Nagar areas by taking a left on the Attibelle Circle and continue straight (dont take left or right) till you reach Anekal (you can visit your farmland, like I do on the way!) and take a right, to reach Bannerghatta via Jigani.

Smooth as Hemamalini cheeks, like Lalu said.

The Saturday morning drive takes 1 hour and 10 minutes in the normal NH7 route, while on Sunday it reduces by 10 minutes and I dont exceed 65 - 70 kmph as my car is new.

The return drive on NH7 is cool too! About 1 hour to reach Mysore Road junction at Silk Board. Then the fun starts of crawling.... on Saturday and while Sunday is cool.

Petrol Crisis in Bangalore!

After Tamilnadu had Petrol crisis (includes Diesel) due to teh truckers strike, now it the time for Bangalore spilt across border.

I have seen the bunk owners forcing people to buy premium products at 10% extra cost.

Long live the pricing formula!
