Followup to Its Back

This post is a follow-up to the “Its Back” post by Cy. I went there tonight with my cousins.. just to take in the sight, and snapped a few photos. The photo’s aren’t quite as high-def, but should give you an idea of what the fountain looks like at 11 PM. (Yo-Yo: your wish got answered!)

Honestly, there’s hardly anything as satisfying and relaxing as standing there at night, watching the shower throw up water and the light exaggerate the spray as it falls back down, with a cool wind blowing your hair about. Even at midnight, there were quite many people there, as well as a police mobile standing back as guards. Very peaceful! I actually feel recharged! Say what you may… but in my view, KPT was right in putting up this monument!

    Cy, Rome has supposedly been burning for the last 59 years. We’re still here.

    i still stand by the view that 22 crores rupees was certainly not worth it.. imagine how that much dough could have benefitted the poor.. or …rather than ‘recharging the batteries’ or providing recreation value.. its better to provide peace of mind by addressing the real problems of khi… ironically the biggest of which is water supply.
