How green was my valley

The old Bangaloreans, whenever i meet any of them, have a common complaint.. that there used to be a lot of greenery in Bangalore until a few years back, and now there is a distinct lack of it, thanks to bangalore becoming a tech hub, and the mass influx..
i beg to differ though, i think the greenery has just changed its form, these days i see it in mainly two forms - one, as dollars flowing in due to the technopolis tag, and two, the look on my face wheni see the techies spending it ;)

until next time, matter has multiple personalities :)

I hate it when a Kanadiga says that the greenery has reduced because of IT and and the influx of outsiders with some kind of a look towards me. Looks like he/she is scolding me for coming and working here.
