Radio City and me seem to have some weird connexion. Imagine my surprise when the late night Valentine Day special on Radio City happened to have almost the very songs I generally listen to in my car! Songs from Bon Jovi, Metallica, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, Bryan Adams….! It was eerie!
Imagine switching from the CD to the radio and wondering if you had switched at all, for the radio is blaring the very same songs!!

Volvos on Bangalore roads by theSilverBullet

So BMTC proves yet again why PSU public transport companies can be customer-friendly even when faced with little or no competition and for the first time on Indian roads, we see the Volvos on city streets. Its on a pilot basis, hopefully, it will succeed and we will see a lot more such (comfy) city buses. Currently doing duty on only one route – the one towards electronic city.

Had a peek at the buses today. The buses looked like the ones at the airport terminals, although more swanky than those in Indian airports anyhow! The bus had a very, very low ground clearance, I wonder why? Does the BMTC expect Bangalore roads to be suddenly smooth all over the city? Or maybe its going to run only where the roads are smooth?

One thing must be said about the bus – it was incredibly quiet (it was idling by the way)- the only noise I could hear was my vehicle’s engine as I passed by!

Amidst all the sports stories, there is one snuck in that reports that the Bangalore Lions have won the PHL, or Professional Hockey League.

The Bangalore Lions triumphed in the second edition of the Premier Hockey League after a brace by Hari Prasad helped them down local favourites Chandigarh Dynamos 2-1 in a pulsating third match of the best-of-three finals.

reports Sify.

Well, while yours truly is not a huge fan of sports that involve “goals”, well done Bangalore Lions.
