Discovering The Maunderer In The Charm of Chandigarh - Part II

Early morning, the golden sun was about to shine bright, the birds were chirping sweet, an artistic morning wasn’t expected in this TaylorMade city. Early but lazy morning, I had. However, had a feeling of spring as soon as I got out of bed with memories of yesterday and amusing zeal for today. The “ Organized City ” makes a call to the “Unorganized Aanya”, I thought. A refreshing glass of juice and a couple of sandwiches was my breakfast with which I started finding myself an Uber . In a few minutes, I was on the wheels again, driven down to the Vegan Fest - Day 2. To me, it seemed the festival was more about saving animals than focusing on veg dishes.

In order to avoid the heat and find myself so, ET sort of consolations, I went into the debate with Google Assistant. “Hey Google, What is the temperature today?” “Wow! Triple Digits! - Today in Lucknow the temperature is 101”, she replied “Don’t you think it is too hot here?” “Some of my data centers run as hot as 95 degrees Fahrenheit! *inserts fire emoji*” “But it is 101 degrees Fahrenheit here” “I’m no hotter than death valley, which holds the record of 134.06 degrees Fahrenheit” *sun emoji* *shock emoji* “Thanks for the encouragement google!” (*sits and cries in the corner*) I really dunno if the encouragement was sufficient enough or not, but it did one good thing, stimu
