La Mauvaise Foi

La liberté est ce que vous faites avec ce qui a été fait à vous.   (Freedom is what you do with what has been done to you) - Jean-Paul Sartre.   You try to wake up on time every morning. Sometimes you have had a good sleep, sometimes you haven’t, because you were anxious. You try to finish your morning routine as early as possible because you have to leave home by 8AM; to reach office by 9 AM. Office, a place where you spend at least 9 hours of your day, working on things that you probably do not even make use of. But they are important, because they are owned by someone else and they would sell it to other people and make money. You will have to help them make that money because a tiny fraction of that money becomes your salary. There is another person above you, whose primary job is to manage you and make sure you work as intended. You aspire to be that person someday, as he on the other hand, aspires to be the person above him. 

Cycling To Pyramid Valley

When many in office have bought a bicycle, it calls for a cycle ride. After a long time, we planned another cycle trip. We chose to ride upto the Pyramid valley. On Saturday March 14th, Mak, Subbu, Allen, Subbiah, Rohit, Tejas and I met near Metro Bazaar on Kanakapura road at around 6 AM. 

The ride was not very stressful. The onward journey was nice and smooth. Its mostly downhill, that means, less tiring. We made one quick stop at the Kaglipura bakery for some tea and bun. Pyramid Valley is off Kanakapura road after Somanahalli cross. Its not easy to miss the big sign boards that take you left off the Kanakapura road. The total ride was around 30kms.

At Pyramid valley, we parked our bicycles, signed the registry and walked towards the canteen. We had our breakfast and headed to the pyramid. The inside of the Pyramid is a empty space for meditation and at the centre is the flight of stairs that go up to  platform which is located at 1/3rd the height and is called the kings chamber. It is believed that the cosmic energy is the most there and is to lead good results with the Meditation. We meditated there for a while and then walked out to the store. Walked near the open space outside. We felt much more relaxed and peaceful in the garden, amongst Nature than inside the pyramid. 

After some juice at the canteen we headed back. Rode our cycles till the main road and some distance on it. It was noon and the sun was too harsh so as usual we decided to take a tempo till Saraki signal and then rode back home. As alway a great one day cycle trip around Bangalore.
