Well, being a state wide bandh today, I was wondering what best I can do to pass (rather kill) time....Thought I'll scribble something in my blog and spend time....
A couple of months back, I had a chance to visit a 'Consumer Fair Event' held in Bengaluru. During my childhood,this kind of consumer fair events (the so-called 'Exhibitions' of those days) were the only exciting time pass activity on a holiday because I was brought up in a town which didn't have any posh shopping malls or vast beaches or multiplex theaters or surrounded by exotic tourist spots to chill-out.
The main attractions of this exhibition used to be 'Taking a scary round in Giant wheel', 'Eating Mirchi Bajji', 'Hot Masala or Pani Puri', 'Cotton-candy' and 'Throw a ring and win some Plastic Items or toys' and some 'Play area for Kids'.
As I grew up, I realized that these events were exhibiting the same set of stalls and same kinds of merry-go-round and selling same varieties of eatables and hence slowly I lost interest to visit them.Suddenly I saw this kind of event in Bengaluru and driven by the curiosity, I decided to visit the event. (Yes, I paid the usual minimal entrance fee @ Rs.10/-). And, to my surprise, nothing has been changed till now!!. It still exhibits the same old stuffs generations after generations :)
Some of the pics for a glance. But, not to forget, it surely has brought back some of my old memories of childhood days :)
