It has been my fantasy from quite some time now. Quite some time. To be able to find and get married to an over worked, frigid, insecure, MBA, earning obscene amounts of money and who is into investment banking.
Yes, you heard me right there. I shall endeavour to present to you the compelling value proposition of such an arrangement.

First off, I shall be a stay at home husband. And my wife will have 14 hour work days and 10 hour weekends. I will be rich, because my wife will be rich. And since my wife is rich, we shall stay in one of those gated, exclusive communities that are filled with rich people. Imagine, I will be the lone bull in a community full of lonely women "home makers". All rich men have beautiful wives, don't they? And because they are all rich, they will have very little time for their "home making" wives :D. Now you know where I am getting to, dont ya? :D I shall be in the company of beautiful, lonely women pining for male company of the right kind ;-) (Did somebody choke there? Die you fiend!! People should note here that I am a stay at home husband and I can afford to spend 4 hours at my personal gym at my home, every day, with a sexy brazilian fitness trainer named Kátia)

Also, I could throw tantrums whenever I feel like buying a new sports car, or perhaps my own yatch anchored off the cost of Monaco. Periodic visits to exotic holiday locations all over the world. Ah!

What more can a man want?

But then, I guess this is more like reality :D [siiigghhhh!!!]

Bangalore International Airport

I have been visiting the Bangalore International Airport Limited website from quite some time now. For a change, we have a very good and comprehensive website for a key infrastructure project.

Check it out here

My favourite part of this website is the page with all the latest construction updates. It is pretty good, take a look

The stuffy, over crowded excuse of an airport, that is bursting at the seams that we have now will get some respite. Heck, who the hell thought that us Indians would be flying in such great numbers in anything other than magic carpets back when the current HAL airport was built. I thank the pack of low cost airlines led by Air Deccan for the current revolution. It is of course helped by the fact that there are many more of us who can afford to fly, either back home for that important festival from the cities where we work or the many small businessmen who want to save time while they travel on business or for many other reasons.

The one crib I will still have (:D )is that the new airport will be so far off, and currently, there are no concrete proposals to link the airport to the city with anything other than the currently under construction (painfully slow construction) 6 lane road. Imagine driving 20-30 kms to the new airport in rush hour traffic, especially from the southern areas of the city. brrrr.... Extending the metro in say phase3/4 directly to the airport will definitely help.
