New Begining...Bangalore....

When HR (my husband) and me decided to move to Bangalore from Delhi we knew the change would be difficult and we had to be strong. The change was inspired and driven by the greed to grow professionally ( and hoping financially too :P ). And both of us knew that it would be pretty difficult. Leaving home, leaving Delhi was tough. The decision itself was tough, leave alone the actual change. It was only when I had to leave Delhi I realized how used to Delhi I was ( just to mention that when I had initially come to Delhi, I didn't like it at all ) and how much I was going to miss it. I was so comfortable in Delhi, so cosy. Delhi has everything family, relatives, friends and home. And the biggest positive for Delhi, my sister.

But here we are in Bangalore, searching for a place to stay and start our new journey. Will someone believe me if I say that finding a place to stay (rent) is very very very difficult in Bangalore. It tests your patience beyond bounds and you learn to make compromises on so many things. But the good part about Bangalore, as everyone would agree, is the weather. Escaping and missing Dilli ki Sardi at the same time though.

New city, new life, new people, new house, new faces, leaves me longing for the older things back and yet fills me up with an excitement for the new. Such contrasting emotions, is it me or does it generally happen with everybody.

So many things happening at the same time. And so much do in such less time. Such upheaval in life and yet such calmness. Sometimes when I sleep in the night I wish that when I get up in the morning everything should be fine, all issues and problems solved, everything settled and fine. But then when I open my eyes in the morning they are there in front of me again.
Bangalore seems to have done some magic to HR's sense of humor. He simply loves making fun of me ( Huff Puff ). And does not spare me in front of anybody. But since we have come here his sense of humor seems to have improved, even his jokes. And I actually laugh when he makes fun of me now ( instead of freaking out and being angry ) as opposed to before. So I guess Bangalore has had it's effect on both of us.
What I am missing in Bangalore right now is the Sarojani Nagar and Lajpat Nagar of Delhi. Does anyone know of their Bangalore counterparts ? So much to buy and so less money to spend, what will I do ?

I'll start liking ( or, being optimistic maybe loving ) Bangalore in due course of time I know. But it's still a new start and it still is long way to go......
