On Karnataka Rajyotsava (Nov 1), a State holiday, we decided to take take a ride on the recently inaugurated Bangalore Metro. It is heartening to see the euphoria of Bangaloreans, most newspapers have been carrying the photos of Bangaloreans with wide smiles at the Metro station. Few have been celebrating their birthdays & wedding anniversaries in the train (now this is stretching too much).
Bangalore Metro was supposed to have been inaugurated today, which is an auspicious day in Karnataka – Ugadi. I live very close to the upcoming Metro line, it didn’t look ready for inauguration by any stretch of imagination.
