Bengalaru, the garden city, is in the limelight for some reason or other, whether they connote good or bad indications.
The Silicon valley of Indis has grown at such large scale and hectic speed, that the city ,which was once a town for retired officials,has reached the stage of outpour or bust to put it in a slang dialect.
The small town,has expanded horizontally, vertically , encompassing a few kilometeres of extension areas under its sway.
The growth looks awesome. The charm of the city is lost in the maddening rush and dense population.
The morning hours were dotted with pleasent drizzle,and a mild cold , that it induced the then habitants ,the retired military men, to lie in peace.
The hot coffee brought by the mademosilles or cooks ,was a warm up for the plus sixties, that they sipped the hot beverage,while browsing through the newspapers.
The lush green lawns, the huge trees, the fauna and the foliage added mirth to the lousy lethargic city.
Today ,the early hours in Bengalaru ,is dark with fumes of rushing cars.
The hooting honks of the vehicles, the drawling noise of the buses, the dizzy headway rush by the software engineers , make Bengalru look like a ghastly city.
There is excess of carbon emission, enormous blarring noise, which emulate a diffident derailment.
Infosys, Wipro, IBM,HP. so on and so forth, with the attractive pay have developed a generation, which belong to no time and no place.
The lure for money , a culture nurtured by the soft ware companies ,has demoralised the society.
The cult ,much similar to Hare Rama, Hare Krishna movement, or more so akin to the Hippie culture, has devastated the society, by penetrating deeply into the established norms and accepted prescriptions.
This excess financial liberation has exuded a disastorous derangement, ranging from disobedience to divorce.
The beautiful city, once a haven of elated principles , is now a shelter to dwindling moral ethical standards.
The colonial buildings ,with their majestic demenaour now stand along with high rising concrete structures, with impunged deviations.
