Places

Hyderabad

This place like an overfed snail
crawls.
I will prick its belly
And spill the contents
On sleeping people.
Maybe things will move faster.

Hosur

Upside down
A sandstorm will arise
A stampede of cows
With broken backs
Will moo painfully.
People may atleast then
Come to their senses.

Loved the snail analogy! Brilliant - both of them!

PS What thinks thee of Bangalore? Perhaps this would be an interesting read for you!

Wow!!! pithy and neat... Pricking the belly of the
overfed snail is just neat!

Hi Nisha,
Both comments above are pretty apt.
Wonderful analogy, do write more abt
other cities. I must try my take on
the sleeping python that Hyderabad is.
For sure.
Cheers !

Ah, brilliant Nisha...especially liked the one on Hyderabad...being an Hyderabadi myself (or well was at least until last year, lived in Hyd for 22 yrs) I think you have caught one major characteristic of the city perfectly. But I love Hyderabad precisely b'cos of that. I hope Hyderabad never turns into a cheetah or something :)
