Commute to office

For long, I've been advising everyone who would listen that there is no
better solution to beat the traffic stress than to drop our cars and
start using public transport. I have been guilty of not following my own
advice, always justifying it with the "my office is so close, I don't
think I am contributing to the mess" argument.

I finally decided to do something about it. I decided that I will start
taking the Volvo bus to work at least once a week. I have been doing it for
the last two weeks. It's a lot more expensive than driving, very crowded
and inconvenient (with a wait time of upto 30 minutes), but I have the
satisfaction of contributing to the greater good.

And who knows, if more people start doing this, the traffic in Bangalore
may start getting better.

Wow, you really have not changed. You still are the same old idealistic person! I really appreciate you for that. I hope more Bangaloreans follow your suit.

Well, some of my team members have said that they will also try it out. Maybe, I should put it on their goals , after all, appraisal time is coming:-)
