True Bangalorean

 TRUE BANGALOREAN 



You are a true bangalorean
if your first love was the awesome weather
if you can’t get enough of DBC at corner house
if you cheered for RCB in IPL matches together

You are a true bangalorean
if you have fought multiple times with an auto driver
if you find masala dosas at Vidyarthi Bhavan delicious
if despite the broken roads of the city, you’re a survivor

You are a true bangalorean
if you’ve tasted heaven with Brahmin’s melting idli
if you can’t stand someone insulting the city
if you’ve gotten wet in B’lore rains excitedly

You are a true bangalorean
if utility building defines your description of tall
if you drive bike on footpath to avoid traffic jam
if the oldest stone structure you know is the town hall

You are a true bangalorean
if on comm street, you uncontrollably shop
if Brigade road is your version of Times Square
if for a ride on the metro, you do proudly hop

You are a true bangalorean
if you get annoyed by the nightlife deadline
if you spend more time in traffic jams than with family
if for the numerous electricity cuts you do whine

You are a true bangalorean
if you know time to reach airport is greater than flight time
if you love people’s spirit and energy level here
if you know wearing any attire to a restaurant is not a crime

You are a true bangalorean
if for every problem “chill maadi” is your solution
if you agree its a welcoming, pleasant and cosmopolitan city
if you constantly talk about the greenery before IT revolution

You are a true bangalorean
if you feel there are more IT offices here than hair on your head
if after living in the city for decades, you can only say “Kannada Gotthilla”
if you know its the best city to stay in, alive or dead

You are a true bangalorean
if you agree its a home to different cultures and has irresistible charm
if you’ve visited Lalbagh flower show and sat in Cubbon park’s toy train
if you can’t stand Vidhana Soudha come to any harm

You are a true bangalorean
if you add suffix “maadi” to every verb to give more impact
if you don’t care about the distance you travel as long as its in a volvo
if being nicknamed as Garden City, AC City, IT City is a justified fact

You are a true bangalorean
if you take people to MTR, Iskcon and Blossoms with immense pride
if you have had delicious breakfast at Koshy’s
if you have experienced each and every Wonder la ride

You are a true bangalorean
if you have seen the city host live shows of ghazals as well as heavy metal
if you have used the phrase “Sakkath hot maga”
if you don’t want to move out and elsewhere settle

You are a true bangalorean
if you have been to Nandi Hills, Ramnagar and Raasta on Mysore Road
if you understand Chow-Chow, Uppi and by-two coffee
if you know people who are efficient in Kannada and writing JAVA code

You are a true bangalorean
if you think the city is a hub of entrepreneurs, industries and activity
if you truly believe "Namma Bengaluru" rocks
if you’ve seen the city lit up for Christmas, Eid and Diwali festivity

You are a true bangalorean
if you travel by BMTC and do not complain or shout
if you know shortcuts to avoid traffic signals
if you can think of many points I have missed out...
