Hey guys, Thank you for being an awesome bunch of peeps participating on the threads during my week curating WAB and sharing your hobbies and ideas and favorite parks and everything else really. I certainly had a lot of fun learning everything I did. Now, I’m a data engineer and I’m not in favor of losing out on information that’s provided because it’s invaluable :)
So I thought I’d make a ready reckoner for the threads discussed during the week so you can look it up here anytime! :)
Bangalore or Bengaluru?

Life near a Metro -
[Thread] The Metro in Bangalore is slowly but surely becoming a very reliable mode of transportation in the city(atleast to the stations it connects so far). But it's really not accessible if you forget your wallet & therefore can't buy a ticket even if you have PayTM/Phonepe etc— Bengaluru/Abhiram (@WeAreBangalore) July 1, 2019
Hobbies of Bangalore -
Good morning Bengaluru! 😊— Bengaluru/Abhiram (@WeAreBangalore) July 2, 2019

But, today, let's talk about what your interests are Outside of your professional skills. What are your hobbies?
And no, Netflix/Prime/Hotstar doesn't count.
Readers of Bangalore -
[Today's Thread] I love reading. And I especially like books that are part of a series. Because, if a book in the series is good, you're effectively being given a promise - a promise that the journey is not yet over and that it is only going to get Better.— Bengaluru/Abhiram (@WeAreBangalore) July 2, 2019
An earnest note to students, parents and teachers everywhere -

One thing that I've found is integral to self development and even perhaps good day-to-day functioning is self-confidence. You may a lot of talent, intelligence and ability, but if you don't believe in yourself, you're just pulling yourself down.
A couple of jokes -
A tense 20 secs. The petrol bunk guy looked alternatingly at me with increasing suspicion & at the machine with frustration. I looked back at him, not really thinking about anything except the remaining trip to work.— Abhiram in all probability (@abhicantdraw) July 3, 2019
Then he said -"Idhu aagalla saar"😑
And returned my Metro card.

Communities of Bangalore -
[Thread] Today's topic of discussion I'd like to broach is one of Community building. I'm a big believer in communities and I'm sure all of you have some stake in this as you Are part of Twitter.— Bengaluru/Abhiram (@WeAreBangalore) July 3, 2019
Finally, signing off -
