June 4-6: a trip to bangalore I had an official excuse to take the republic to bangalore. I could have opted for other comfortable options, but I chose to drive. A colleague and his sister also joined the upward journey. They took a cab to nearby my home and we set out the trip at 5:25 am. First target was Thenmala. I suspect this bridge is also going to be demolished soon for the broad gauge rail route. The nearby smaller bridges have been demolished and re constructed.
