Gauri, a school student in Byappanahalli, celebrated her birthday along with her family and friends in the metro.
“She will cut the cake at the MG Road metro," said her father, Gopakumar, a business man by profession who runs ENQAR Company.
“It was on her insistence that we celebrated her birthday in the metro," he said.
This is not the first time that Gauri was travelling in a metro; she earlier travelled in the same at Singapore and Malayasia and she wanted to make it special for her.
With the inauguration of metro in the city, many beamed in the light of Its glory. For many it was a moment of pride and a step towards another successful venture which surely would take Bangalore to new heights considering the fact that the city is already called the 'Silicon Valley of India" or rather 'city of technological minds" as called by Arun Jaitley, leader of opposition, Rajya Sabha.
As quoted by Union Minister of Railways, Dinesh Trivedi, who during the ceremony said that Diwali had come early to Bangalore, people"s way of celebrating this immense joy today sure proved it was Diwali for many across the city.
