Think about the town where you currently live: its local customs, traditions, and hangouts, its slang. What would be the strangest thing about this place for a first-time visitor?
– saw the quote on a T shirt, yesterday
Indian cities are a mish mash of residential areas, shops, gas stations, movie halls, banks and other commercial establishments existing side by side. There are no zoning laws here.A great help for residents. You will find everything you need within a walking distance from your house.
Bangalore, is no different.
But a quick walk down any road in Bangalore, you’ll notice something STRANGE.
There are more shops selling alcohol than pharmacies. Spotting a shop signage with the white cross is like finding needle in a haystack. In case, you are looking for booze, you will be spoilt for choice.
That’s what I noticed when I landed in Bangalore with a splitting headache. I had to walk through many lanes and bylanes before I found a pharmacy.
Therefore,first time travellers – pack wisely.
Please take special care while packing your First Aid kit. Do not be LAZY, do not PROCRASTINATE buying your medicines and over the counter drugs.
Don’t say, I didn’t warn you !!!
