Software life ain't so soft

[I am going to write this post in 100 words, yet try and get the point across. (Inspired by Tanmay Vora.)]

The RJ today said techies in Bangalore have an easy life. From personal experience, I think not.

1. We don't speak Kannada. (Feel the pain?)
2. Wives are thought to be working to pass time.
3. Most of us work till 9 in the night and take 'support' calls at three in the night.
4. Same traffic, water problem, gas connection, phone issues. Add to this point 1.
5. Nothing we buy is any less expensive.

Moving to a new city is a choice but that doesn't mean it's an easy one. However, patience and a smile are known to work!
