Dear Zindagi

I’m rarely watch movie and even if I watch, I hardly have much opinion. After watching Dear Zindagi, I felt little different. Dear Zindagi touches part of today’s life where lot of family are focused on financial stability and not much into core happiness of life.

Some of dialogues makes lot of sense in practical terms in today’s time. It’s important to forget past mistakes of close people (Specially parents/family) and see long term happiness. It’s not always easy to wear someone’s shoe and figure out their situation specially if they have different age / time period / financial condition/responsibilities. Overall, movie is worth watch !

Mumbai & Life

Recently I visited Mumbai for couple of days and found value of life at different level. In last one year, I have been in Bangalore, Singapore, Ahmedabad and Mumbai. Here are few observation:

  • It’s easy to get decent budget accommodation with breakfast in Singapore than Mumbai !
  • Traveling in Mumbai Local train is kind of must to stay in time-line and budget.
  • Mumbai’s Bandra Worli Sea Link is quite useful piece of infrastructure but it’s simple 5.6 km long bridge
    • With 60 Rs toll
    • Two-wheeler, auto & cycle not allowed
    • Has narrow entry/exit at Worli side

Diwali in Bangalore

Happy Diwali
Saal Mubarak

I’m residing in Bangalore for more than 7 years but first time I spend Diwali time in Bangalore. Few things, I observed:

  • Most office had one or max two days off, but plenty of people were on leave.
  • At lot of locations, people were firing crackers on street. Few places, apartment residence were also firing cracker on street instant of inside campus.
  • Since lot of Bangalorean keep dog as pet, dogs had hard time dealing with firework, which was visible.
