It’s not often that your weekends start as early as 6.30 am. Most of the city would be cuddling under the blankets at that time, still a long way to get over the Friday night’s hangover. But we had other ideas. We had decided to meet up at the beautiful Cubbon Park, a serene nature lover’s paradise, where most of Chris Gayle’s 100m sixes land. Such is its proximity to the Chinnaswamy stadium. Its been more than two years since I made Bangalore my home but I never came here for an early morning stroll. I cursed myself for that.
The wintry winds blew over Bangalore yesterday and there was this Ooty-like chillness in the air. There was greenery all around, with each flora showcasing different shades of green, switching from dark to light back and forth. The rolling lawns looked so neat and clean and the only randomness were the beautiful yellow colored flowers that one could spot in a Malayalee’s household during Vishu. There were sit outs where one could simply settle down, stare at the nature’s beauty all around, search for the sun between the lined up array of trees, get lost in the tranquility and cherish your soulmate’s company.
The eventful day continued as we headed to the Dunkin Donuts in Brigade Road for the brunch and for a meet up with my all time best buddies. After multiple attempts in clicking good pictures, we set off to Amoeba for a round of bowling and then by evening, we headed straight to Domlur for a game of tennis ball cricket. Needless to say, such an amazing day. I type this when I am preparing to go the office. Monday Blues. Ah, fuck.
