I bike it to office as my commute is >25Kms. Stay in Banshankari so traffic snarls are usually not a problem. The only thing I need to worry about is getting too wet!

Yesterday was the hottest April for 27 years. Today, the signs are good. It hasnt rained here in Jayanagar as yet, but it's nice and windy. Still too hot though :(

It was one hell of a rain here in EC.And coupled with the winds.It was mind blowing.
A mini tsunami effect.I went out on the basket ball court to get wet and the next thing I realised was I was lying parallel to the ground.The wind currents were amazing and the rain as though was not coming down but pouring sidewards.Maza aa gaya

Had decided to purchase an AC yesterday.Today the plan is dropped

Love namma bangalore's climate.Auto A/C mode on as soon as the heat started to become unbearable.

The child in you got out, eh?

Dripping yes but not dirty as it was a cemented basketball court.

And I am relishing the fact of going back home in my safari.Dirt driving
Finally get to do a la 4x4 in a 4x2.Hope the same for you too.
Man you were right.Dil to bachcha hai ji.

Before it does, better get out of here, the IRR is a disaster when it comes to drainage, becomes a swimming pool literally with huge jams across, worst place to be in when it rains heavily.
Bad part about rains- Gotta wash the car and all waxing polising etc GONE!!! :(
