Be it flyovers, metro, or any other long-term construction in Indian cities, the build time is pretty unpredictable. Chances are you might meet the love of your life in a traffic jam caused due to an ongoing flyover construction and then 5 years later you could be stuck in the same jam while taking your kids to school.
If not exactly, this is pretty much what happened with this guy from Bengaluru. Sharing his ‘peak Bengalutu’ moment, the man took to Reddit and shared how he and his now wife once got stuck (before their wedding) because of the Ejipura flyover work.
Frustrated by the jam, they diverted their route and ended up having dinner together. Fast forward to five years, the couple who were friends back in the day when this incident happened dated for 3 years and it’s been 2 years since they got married. And guess what, the flyover that united them is still under construction.
This hilarious incident, that’s a possibility in Bengaluru, was brought to light by a Twitter user who shared the screengrab of the Reddit post on the microblogging site.

To our shock, those who have been living in the silicon valley of India weren’t surprised on reading this. Some people even related to his situation.
Can relate. That flyover is under construction for all the time I’ve been in Bangalore.

that is nothing, a road here was under repair for over a decade. I finished school, college and few year into my job when it got fully repaired and re-laid.

Things that can happen only in Bangalore!!
No, not the love story but the forever under-construction flyovers.
Had experienced a similar fate of Domlur flyover, guess that road is jinxed https://t.co/NOUYiSmHAt
