Life in Bangalore

Havent seen a single movie in a long time. There is no good video rental shop near my house and besides by the time i get back home its pretty late to sit and watch a movie. I leave home by 8 sometimes and reach back home only around 10. almost 3 hours gone in commuting trying to cope with all the traffic in bangalore. some 8-10 hours gone in office, leaving very little time for oneself. I wonder what is the quality of life in such cases. Even if you plan to leave early say 6 PM invariably you are struck in traffic and reach home only around 730 - 8. some how life just goes on and nobody really gives too much thought to all this. I really dunno how married people cope with this esp with lot more responsibilities at work for their position and more responsibilities at home too... Its almost as if there is no life. Thank god, most companies work only 5 days a week. Otherwise life would just be hell. I know always keep complianing, but atleast some will agree that living in a place such as bangalore, life on weekdays is almost non-existant.

oh well....ur just being ur usual self again....i do agree with the "lack of quality time for oneself and family" and this is the same issue that u agrued with me a few months ago where i said one should always learn to have a work-life balance, and u took a stand that i didnt understand and dont rememeber. Well i hope u've found an answer to ur query. I say it totally depends on u and where there is a will there is a way!
cheers

it all depends on the individual... i usually have a good amount of time to spend on weekdays... i stay closer to office... and a good 3 hrs at home in the evenings... i don't think its difficult to create a balance as it just depends on YOU alone...

suggestion: leave early by say 5 PM... come to office early too... say by 8 AM...
