I guess we now have a recession of sorts. Can’t deny it any longer. Can’t claim we are immune to the global markets once more. I still don’t understand how everything seemed so perfect 6 months ago that every one said India has been re-rated permanently and now we seem so stuck. But I never understood economics anyways. My MBA burden of reading ET every day got spent best on reading Calvin and Hobbes.
So I was wondering if there is any silver lining in all this. No, not all the stuff about becoming a wiser generation or turning a crisis into an opportunity. Nothing so deep and philisopical. I am looking for some thing that got better in my life now. Then I realised that traffic in Bangalore has come down.
I am sure there is some economics or freakenomics explanation for this. But I feel it like a lot of people do. As the stock market started crashing to new lows every day the roads of Bangalore got unclogged at every junction. It feels like Bangalore was a couple of years ago.
The wierd thing with signals now is a lot of times there isn’t enough traffic to justify the delay in the wait times !!
So we don’t need to wait for so long. It’s time to re-calibrate the signals.
