Things in Bangalore I will miss

  • The many friendly, curious, energetic people I met here
  • The great food: dosas, vadas, fresh lime soda (Google "dosa" and "vada" if you don't know what they are)
  • Low prices for restaurant meals, clothes and other items (OK, low for me)
  • Someone making my bed for me every day (which was nice for a year. I never could quite get used to the cleaners coming in every day. I guess I'm too solidly middle-class and too used to doing things for myself)
  • The colors -- of clothes, of trucks, of ... everything
  • Experiencing a totally different culture from the Judaeo-Christian framework that defines the West
  • Being able to wear a T-shirt in January (I am writing this in New Jersey, where some patches of snow are still on the ground)

I like the post on " Officer on Deck". I suppose the Indian adulation for whites is an outcome of the colonial days. It was constructed to differentiate the masters from the common subjects. It definetly still lingers on.
