April? So Be It!

Old faithfuls, new hopefuls, here I am again. I’ve been harping about revealing myself in February – well, that didn’t happen. Well, I won’t disappoint you any more. April it shall be. The month of Amusement and Admiration. Er, ignore the corny adjectives. What I mean to say is that I am back in town and I am going to rock your lives more than ever this summer.

The heat wave was intensely powerful as I stepped off my plane last night. I’ve been cruising around the globe, trying to find Raj, the scum of the earth, and teach him not to meddle in my life. Turns out, among his other nefarious talents, hiding is one. I couldn’t find him, but rest assured, I will. And when I do, Bangalore and the whole world will see. And experience. And talk about it for a long, long time.

Can’t really say how much longer now. It should be any day. When I reveal myself, you will be astounded. There is more to life than a heat wave and commercialized cricket. You’ll see.

Wait. Watch. And Learn.

So, This Is Bangalore!

I’ve been on a flight for the past fifteen hours, and as soon as I stepped out into the Bangalore airport, my first thought was – “I have arrived!”

I looked around at the people and saw only guinea pigs running inside an endless wheel, and felt more than pity for them. There are quite a few things I’m good at, and spending time pitying other people isn’t one of them. I moved on to collect my things, thanked the captain and the first officer for their patience, and climbed into the waiting limousine parked at the foot of the stairs. Private hangars are never hard to come by if you can dig deep enough into your wallet.

I think, perhaps, mine was the only limousine on the roads of this city yesterday. If you saw it, you probably got a glimpse of me too.

It’s been close to 18 months since I’ve been to Bangalore. Last time I was here, I had to leave suddenly due to certain events I’d rather forget but can’t. To come back to this place seems a bit foolish at first thought, but then, tying up loose ends is one of the things I’m good at. I have to do this, no two ways about it.

I am in Bangalore. I have arrived to make a difference in your lives, people. Watch out, and watch this space. Your lives are going to be changed in more ways than one.
