I have been living in Goa for the last seven months after living in Bangalore for 26 years, starting September 1987. I witnessed the explosive/hyper growth of Bangalore in this time. Panaji, the Capital of Goa too seems like a small town after Bangalore. I have begun to look at the big Indian cities in a different way now.
Quantum physics says that the a quantum system can be in more than one state at the same time and in more than one place. Bangalore seems like a quantum system to me. During a recent visit I realised that many parts of the city are left out in most of the discourses on the city. People live in their own bubbles, including nostalgia. People live, love, work, and die next to each other albeit in different realities, at the same time.
