well.. i am one of the software rats that live in bangalore which travels from one part of the city to another to sit for 9 hours clock some work and get back home to be worn out and torn down to be able to do nothing but hitting the sack.

here is something i noticed recently.

there is this superlong bridge that connects silkboard with electronic city. this bridge being called as the electronic city bridge. brushing aside the various advantages, here are a few disadvantages that comes with the bridge:

1. no agents of public transport go on the bridge. the bridge is being made use of only by private vehicles (no idea why)

2. though there is a service area in atleast 2 places on the bridge, it is of no major use, people may just make use of it like an inbetween resting area while covering the long distance.

3. by no means can you call for help when your atop the bridge, even if you manage to do so, it will be a long time by the time help arrives

4. there are no emergency phone booths which can atleast be made use of to call an ambulence

5. if your vehicle stops mid way, you have no choice but to push it all the way till either end of the bridge

6. all the vehicles are in such great speed when on the bridge for there is nothing to control the speed, though, the bridge was meant too cut the traffic below and reach the other side asap, people who fly on the bridge wont even have the kinda time to see a person wounded (if at all)

7. a silly scenario: u and ur mate are riding the bike on a bike on the bridge and you happen to have an argument. what if your mate strands you on the bridge and goes away in anger? how will you possibly come down? by walk? by a weak chance, what if you have no cash? no mobile? how will you even call your mate and say sorry yaar now come and take me down??

i think this is some food for thought for us rats.
