Its time for Bangalore’s city corporation elections or all the bars are fucking closed.

Eagerly awaiting the end of the day to meet a friend and get really wasted yesterday evening, another friend mentions over evening cuppa that the bars will be closed, why? Because of elections, yes its that time again where we get to use our right to vote, the only thing on my mind was I wanted to drink and could not.

no drinking till saturday

Quick mental check of options available, first one to come to mind was a gig on art in urban spaces at the Max Muller in Indranagar which had earlier committed to giving free beer! Alas, that was not possible as I had to head back to the store, the streets were eerily empty, seriously not many bikes and hardly any people, which is awesome, it makes one think is that all people come to this area for fucking alcohol?

Now to the theme of this post – It’s time to cast your vote again Bangalorians, go ahead, do it – if you are registered, remember you get bitching rights only if you actually vote, who you vote for is a different issue altogether, we suggest you use your clear head and be judicious – regardless of who you vote for – it is not going to fucking matter – all corporators are douche bags, investing their money on campaign give aways – to fuck you and leave you in the stinking putrid mess that we call home.

What are your options really in this elections? Well, if your incumbent corporator has fulfilled his earlier promises, vote for him. If there is an upstart who seems filled with fire and anger over the current state of apathy, vote for him. If you feel they are all assholes and nothing is going to change ever, we can relate to your predicament – choose to vote but, choose to not vote for any of the above candidates.

Whatever you choose, till tomorrow all bars (all bars besides those lovely delinquents who are usually open when they should be closed, are open), come Saturday evening all bars are going to have a deluge of thirsty customers, waiting to get fucked up in a great hurry. Another election would have come and gone and will we really see any considerable change? I for one seriously doubt it, change is happening without the state mechanism, change is happening when individuals like you my dear reader decides to act as an independent agent of change, wanna know how?
