Forum in Deepavali Mood…

After a long interval, today I visited the Forum, my favorite place in Bangalore. Forum is one of the best Shopping Mall in the city, though costly. The best place for those who are not ready for compromise on product quality. I was a frequent visitor to this place some time before. However, these days I am becoming a stranger here. The time I used to spend in Forum is stolen by travels to the new office. On the other hand, am I getting bored with this place?

The AUDI Car is gone! This is the first thing I noticed entering the Mall. The mall is fully decorated with illumination and lamps for deepavali festival. Now the exit has made strictly through the side openings in two sides. Security is more tight now. More Security inspection doors are installed. Guards are checking the bags of almost all visitors. Some of the shops are missing and few new shops came in. Some new spaces has been allocated for shops which was left unused earlier. I paused for some seconds in front of the 3D glass Cube printers. Its an amazing technology. I can't even imagine how to create the picture inside the cube. Looking into the machine it looks like they are using laser beams to burn specific positions inside a plane glass cube. But how? I can say only one word, "Its complicated!!"

I went upside to see the decorations and took some snaps. The decoration under the middle dome is amazing. I took snaps of this illumination from each floor. But the best was from the topmost floor, which covered the complete lighting. Wished I had my S5 IS Camera with me that time. Even in 2 MPX, picture noise is too heavy in Mobile Cameras.

Rush is more as it is a holiday…I hate Forum when rush is there and so avoids coming here on weekends except with friends. I came to Forum because it is a shortcut for me to get into the other side of the road. Oh Jezzez, the main task is still left. I don't have much time to spent. I walked past the flowing crowd and continued to the other side of the mall and dissolved into the wandering mass in the main road.

We used to visit Forum quite often earlier when it was THE only mall in Bangalore worth its name. Now I dont enjoy going there unless imperative, which it really is not, as it is crowded almost always and we have to wade through the entire city to get there. I prefer Sigma Mall on Cunningham Road now. For now, less number of shops, less number of shoppers and not much to purchase there too!!

Am happy going there !!

Crowd in Forum is becoming hectic nowadays. I suspect this crowd is adversely affecting the business in forum, except for PVR section. Many families prefer other places just because Forum is too much crowded.

How much percent among roamers are actually becoming customers to the mall?? May be it could create future customers!!
