Unfortunately none of them realize that I have managed to kill even the most resilient cacti, given enough time!

I’m not fussy, but that’s the weather I would like. If wishes were horses, right? But I still concede that when it comes to satisfying my weather requirement, no other city in the world gets it as close to perfect as Bangalore. …
