The Aunty brigade.........

People in metros at one or the other point in their lives,would have had the experience of public transport, good , bad whatever it is. One usual thing that happens while traveling in public transport is that you get to see and observe hoards of people (that is my favorite pastime,while travelling in bangalore buses, types & kinds of people).

In some of my recent trips i noticed one particular type,  "The Aunties" . They are the types who lie in the age group of  35-65(though would never admit & behave to their actual age) and also have an opinion on almost everything under the sun. There were some really interesting incidences that happened recently:

 1. Once me & dips were going somewhere, that day the bus was crowded ,so we were standing just in front of two "Aunties", and the conversation that i heard was truely hillarious

Auntie X-" I dont know how girls these days, carry such tight 2 clothes." and while giving that remark she actually pointed out finger to me and dips , both of us dressed in a skin fit denim and regular tees. I seriously didnt knew how to react, and all i could do was give aunty a smile ( poor me......)

Aunty Y : Gave a big nod !!

Aunty X : I told pinky/chinky/ or something similar sounding name, that she is never suppose to wear any such stuff ( Me- still giving a smile, although a lil weird one this time)

 Finally we got down the bus, the auntys though still continuing the same topic.

2. The most common of all, whenever u are getting up on a bus, suddenly a mob of aunties will come ,step on your feet, push you back,without feeling the need of saying sorry, and will occupy all the vacant seats and also make few of the men stand up,give them the respect (or i shud say forcefully taken), and let aunties sit on their seats.

3. Some of them would suddenly start bombarding  you with all personal question
    Where do u belong to?
    What are you doing in bangalore?
    Where do u stay?
    What your parents do?

As if she ll get her son married to me ..... lolz

There is one more , not related to any public transport incidence but still worth mentioning.....

4. Me and my cousin went to a mall, were trying some stuff there, suddenly an aunty pops out of somewhere and starts telling me how the stuff i was trying was not looking gud on me and finally when on the counter, i saw her with the same stuff that she did not let me take... (come on aunty log, stop playing these ekta kapoor tricks in real life)

Though irritating at times, they still top my list of pastimes.....

Chaipatty-The Teafe!!!!!!!!

Most of my readers till now would have either got used to ,or got total irritated by  my week on week verdicts on movies, people,places etc etc, but guys let me tell you a secret, right from my chilhood i had these (bad??? ) habit of giving opinions on almost everything on the face of this earth. I always felt i had the right to judge things and then also go on telllin people about how i felt for a particular thing. 
Okkk so next in line is "Chai-patty" , its a Teafe, and for the confused lot,let me tell ,the way we have "cafe" ,usual coffee outlets ,this one is a tea cafe!!!!  Situated at 100ft road ,Indiranagar,this is one of the coolest place i have come across in Bangalore. So nw into details,whts cool about a place that serves tea???

(I will try something different,will list some pointers!!!The bullet pointers art learnt through some fellow bloggers.....)

  • The most important one, the tea is an awesome masala chai served in kulhads.5stars for the taste.
  • The interiors are very creatively done and gives a serene and earthy touch to the whole place.
  • Small detailing done using beautiful accessories is worth appreciating.
  • The owner is a very humble and nice person, and also the other staff is very congenial.
  • The other stuff on menu like the pakodas, maggi etc are also very yum!!!
  • They have a collection of books kept there,which u can pick and read while sitting there.  (here they scored the maximum from my side)
So all in all, a very nice place for all those people chai lovers (they do serve coffee as well) who are bored of having coffee and sandwiches at CCDs and Baristas, they are creative ,indian, and coooooooolllll.
