Spirit Side of Bangalore Business

Bangalore India, 8 o’clock in the evening, we have worked late. I have my driver pick us up, and give Uma, a ride home; Venu joins us.

I the way, I find out that they know Canada was once a British colony, as India was also a British colony. In a way, this shared British heritage, makes me feel closer to them; God Save the Queen. I quietly reflect on an earlier conversation with Pratima, another woman from work, when she was talking about the British rule being both a blessing and a curse. A blessing in that they strengthen the unification of the country with government organization, and the English language, and yet...they furthered their own political and economic causes with a divide and control strategy - divide the Indians of each of the states against each other, and control the politics and economy.

I ask, "Where are the temples?"

Because of my interest, they take me to the temple of Bull (photo below). We walk around, I see the rock carving of Ganesha.
