Milking the cash cow

A cashless society may be just as utopian as the classless ideal dreamed of by Marx – great in theory but hard to implement in real life

No more. Nyet. It’s gone kaput. In one fell swoop your cash cow, such as it may have been, has ceased to exist. You don’t have to be an Ambani to feel the heat of this notebandi. However big or small your business may be, whatever strata of society you may belong to, whoever you may be – a Shobha De-esque socialite or a simple Sheela behenji from next door – everyone has been impacted in one way or another in varying degrees. While hope springs eternal in the human heart, and a great national movement may indeed be unfolding before our very eyes, there is many a slip between the cup and the lip. The greatest ideas can come to nought at the altar of stark reality. A cashless society may be just as utopian as the classless ideal dreamed of by Marx – great in theory but hard to implement in real life. The tuition teacher still wants her money in cash not cheque, and then there is the maid, the plumber, the doodh-wala, the vegetable vendor, the automan and a sundry other service providers without whom our lives will simply come to a standstill – like a hung computer in a silicon valley dreaming of loftier goals. The base has to hold. As an aside, could that possibly have been what the Bollywood lyricist meant when he crooned the enigmatic “baby ko base pasand hai?!” The babe, she like base, sayeth the man, but I digress grossly. Coming back to the only valid topic du jour, the ‘crunch’ of the current cash crunch can be heard far and wide with deep echoes reverberating across the spectrum. Pocket money has quite literally ceased to be in the pocket. We have been cornered to behave as we would in a crisis situation or a curfew or a natural calamity – stay put to the extent possible, manage with what you have, don’t even think of nonessentials of any sort. Just bide your time and wait it out for the tide to turn. One way or another.

engaluru is a traveller’s delight. It starts with the air conditioned Volvo buses and the prepaid taxi counter at the airport. Not to mention, the pre-paid auto counters at the city’s railway stations. But the finest example is the ease with which you can navigate the central business district of MG Road and around with the Big 10 buses. You can hop on and hop off at any point after your shopping expedition. But the finest experience will be the first reach of the Namma Metro train running from Old Madras Road to MG Road.

CAR HIRE


GETTING AROUND Look out for pre-paid auto stands. Ask the traffic police for directions. Some of them are at Forum (Hosur Road), MG Road, Kamaraj Road, Cantonment Railway Station and the Bangalore City Railway Station. l After 10pm, autos charge 50% over the metre. After 11pm, it’s 100%. They may charge extra to go to remote areas. No point in haggling over it if your travel is more important. l If you are travelling late at night, it’s best to book a city taxi that comes to your doorstep at the specified time. l If the auto drivers try to fleece you or if you suspect tampering of the metre, call the police at 2558-8444/8555 or email: dcptrafficeast@ gmail.com giving all the relevant details like driver’s name and auto number. l If you want to book a train online and check the status, visit www.irctc.co.in. But first, you would need to register with the website. l Try tele check-in and web check-in from the comfort of your homes or while on the move from your cellphone or laptop. The sooner you check in, the better.

Cultural Melting Pot BENGALURU HAS AN EVOLVED ART SCENE BUZZING WITH CULTURE AFICIONADOS ON PAR WITH METROS BY BY SMITI JAIN NARAYAN

The popular perception of the average Bengalurean is of being this somewhat laid-back IT code cruncher by day and pub-hopper by night. While there may be some truth to that clichéd imagery, there is a whole new wave of art and culture lovers in the city who make up a sizeable chunk of an evolved populace. The theatre, art, music and culture scene in Bengaluru is booming with some great work happening across genres. The city is alive and has metamorphosed into a bit of a hub for art and culture aficionados. Any creative field is only as strong as its appreciative audience. For any place to successfully host an art or culture event, the single most important factor is the art patrons, the so-called intelligentsia who can understand, appreciate and value the art. Beauty after all lies in the eyes of the beholder, and a painting or a 36 // December First Half // 2016

theatrical expression is only as worthy as deemed by the audience. And Bengaluru patrons don’t disappoint. There is a huge craving for good art and cultural events with locals, visitors and expatriates making the most of the veritable druid’s melting pot of all kinds

CULTURE FEATURE

of creative outpourings. With a host of art galleries dotting the city landscape, established artists as well as newbies can find appreciation for their work. Often art exhibitions will be kickstarted with an evening of high tea to introduce the display and facilitate interaction with the artist so people can better understand the machinations behind the portraits. The music scene is also thriving and extremely vibrant with genres ranging from the classical, traditional to the latest Bollywood, edm, hip hop, rock, jazz and group bands. There was a time when theatre meant Bombay (or Mumbai though that doesn’t give you the same cultural connotation). But now Bengaluru can be counted as a global standard theatrical city with plays, drama, comedy and improv

performances ruling the roost with great ingenuity and playing to packed houses. Culturally, the city is rich in its creative leanings and host to acrossthe-spectrum activities. There is a thriving literary scene with book launches, play readings, storytelling, literature festivals and book discussion groups. You have avant garde film screenings, art house cinema, theatre workshops, and other literary, spiritual and philosophy based activities happening across town at any given point of time. For the art and culture vultures, the city has more options than one can keep pace with. Whatever your preferred stream of choice, you can have your fill of the culture cup overflowing with new and old flavours, fusion and purist expressions in all forms. Bengaluru has arrived. It’s pizzazz for the soul, a thriving, vibrant, happening platform – a true melting pot that embraces everything and doles out dollops of creative outpouring. Bombay? That’s so yesterday.

ith Bengaluru, the sobriquets keep getting added up. From Air Conditioned City to Aviation Capital to Garden City, this small town turned technopolis has added a new word to the American lexicon: ‘Bangalored’. It means ‘to lose one’s job’ as a result of off shoring work to India. That’s not all. The city is emerging as a medical tourism hub in India by offering ‘First World Service at Third World Cost’. What’s more, the best and the brightest multinationals are spicing up the retail scene by test-marketing large format stores like Reebok, Levi’s, Adidas, Esprit and Nautica. It’s become a ‘yuppie heaven’. Now that’s yet another sobriquet for the city. With the Metro Rail opening in phases, things are getting better by the day. Visit the city and be bowled over.

WINDMILLS CRAFTWORKS Windmills Craftworks is a world-class Microbrewery, Jazz Theater and Restaurant, complimented by a rare selection of books. The finest Craft Beer, freshly brewed right here to exacting specifications. A Theatre for up close and personal music performances by global talent. A treasure trove of handpicked books on Art, Design, Architecture and Music. A culinary experience with the best inventive and traditional recipes. A Windmill converts the energy of the wind into rotational energy. Without the windmill this wind is almost invisible, intangible, unreal. A creative idea/thought is very much like the wind fleeting. To materialise, thoughts need to be grounded, harnessed and brought to life. Windmills Craftworks came into existence from the idea that great craft brewed beer, live music and fabulous food could come together in a fun, interesting and cerebral atmosphere. 331, 5B Road, EPIP Area, Next to KTPO, Whitefield Tel: 88802-33322.

engaluru is a metaphor of an India that has arrived on the global scene. And this begins with world-class self-sustaining ‘mixed use’ townships. Not to mention, smart digital homes that let you control your household appliances, lights and even the garage door from the comfort of your office. All you need to do is press a button or swipe a card. That’s making the most of smart technology where Wi-Fi enabled houses can automatically take care of all your household needs like dusting, cooking, laundry, bathroom, security and entertainment. You can not only watch what’s happening at home through Wi-Fi enabled webcams but also control the temperature of your fridge and microwave. This is your very own Utopia. Make the most of it.
