This post is nothing but a promotion of a group that I belong to on Facebook – “We Hate Gurgaon“. If you know me, interact with me, follow me on Twitter, or even remotely know who I am, this group will come as no surprise to you. Gurgaon – a village of which the lesser said, the better. Am not going to go on a rant right here – for that, there’s Twitter and of course this group.
I moved to this village in NCR (National Cattle Region) about 32 months ago and have hated it with a vengeance with each passing day. In fact, what this place has done has further led me to hate all of the North, including Delhi, Punjab, and whatever else is north of Kolkata.
This group was started by a friend of mine (Arjun Kolady) and myself. I hold the title of “Chief Subversion Officer”. While my friend was lucky enough to move to Bangalore 12 months from moving to Gurgaon and starting this group, I have been rotting here since December, 2006 and judging by the way things are moving in my life, am stuck here for some more time, unless an act of God or a benevolent miracle rescues me from my grief.
If you have been to this place or if you have any intentions of visiting, please do go through the content listed on this group and you will definitely understand that the so-called “Millennium City” is nothing short of a shoddy, ill-planned, ill-constructed, zero-infrastructure, zero-transport, green-less wonder of the 21st century.
Come one, come all – to the group…not to Gurgaon.
