We Built This City

What do you love most about the city / town / place that you live in? What do you like the least about it? If you were mayor, what would be the most important problem you’d tackle? How would you tackle it?

Positives : Lots of good places to eat, lots of bars & hotels, overall it is a good place to live and grow up. Has a couple of beaches, lots of sea food, lots of cool people, lots of theatres and a couple of malls for hanging out. Seaside areas are a big favourite of mine and we have that. Lots of new organizations popping up. Influx of the best people from other parts of Kerala due to the city being the commercial hub of the state.

Negatives : Terribly cramped roads (and all that metro railway work blocking part of the roads is not helping), bad infrastructure, heavily polluted, mosquitoes, mosquitoes, mosquitoes, places gets very dusty very quick and when it rains the roads get mushy and water logged making travel difficult. Along with the good number of cool people, unfortunately there are a whole lot of assholes & motherfuckers and a lot of people seem to be still living in a 16th century, mindset wise. Lots of rats. Way too many stray dogs. Shameful to say, we have our share of homeless people.  Gets very hot during late February till late June.

Status : We’re like a 14 year old brat that shows flashes of being intelligent and levels of coolness that’s way ahead of our age (in terms of being a modern city) but we have a long, long way to go. I just hope that we solve our problems one by one in a sensible manner and not create more in the process.
