If you live in Bangalore long enough, you can't help but notice the traffic jams. And they seem to get worse every day.

Major streets, such as Airport Road -- which I take to work every day and which goes to the airport -- or M.G. (for Mahatma Ghandi) Road are clogged seemingly night and day.

When the gridlock is really bad, the already polluted air gets worse. You find yourself digging into your pocket for a handkerchief to put over your mouth and nose. That makes breathing a little easier.

Bangalore is said to be the fastest-growing city in Asia. It's definitely growing, and the traffic jams are a sign of how prosperity can be a double-edged sword.
