I’M FLYING out of the new Bengaluru (BIAL) airport to Pune this morning. The fright is at 11:30, but got up early in case of the widely rumoured traffic that can force a very long journey.
But travelling here was a dream, a breeze, a snap and no crackle or pop. Why? The truckers in India are on a nationwide strike. All there was on the road were cars, bikes and buses. So every cloud has a silver lining. The cloud being that the local newspapers are reporting that Bengaluru will run out of vegetables by Monday. Mumbai and Delhi are chock-a-block.
I am, by the way, writing this using the free wi-fi at BIAL. This airport is really an improvement over HAL. I mean it’s even filled the shelves of the shops here. ♦
