Recently I find myself talking more and more about what’s happening in, around and about my country and its people, especially the Tricity even if I might not have been posting about it on the blog. Thus, I added the categories to the blog and plan to start doing just that.
Tricity? That’s Chandigarh and the satellite townships of Panchkula and Mohali. I’m waiting for the day when they are combined to create the Chandigarh Metropolitan Area (CMA). That seems unevitable; might take a few decades though (unless a Paki nuke wipes out the area… heh). Dark humour aside, I don’t remember where I read the three referred to as Tricity but I liked it as a noun and started referring to the three as such. I plan to formalise it completely now by using it in my posts.
In related news, I found Metroblogging through some link. It seems like a great idea. So I applied for Chandigarh. If you’re from Tricity and think you can post at least 3 times a week, perhaps you should apply as well. A city shows up on their list when they have 10 bloggers for one.
