5 Questions with Arun D. Pai: Person of the Day

Arun D Pai: I wish I could get to host Top Gear

1. Who is Shreyas Rao? (Of course we meant to ask who Arun D.Pai is)

Well Shreyas Rao there are a couple of my class mates but I guess that’s not who you are looking for.

2. What does Manipal and ManipalBlog bring to your mind?

Manipal, well my birth town, where I’ ve spent the last 10 years of my life after returning from Manipal its a wonderful place. Although you believe it has lost its charm that it once possessed, but I guess its only necessary that developement is brought about.
Say 5 years back a cake could be only gotten in Amitha bakery or Manipal bakery, today we have Crumbz, Cosmos and the other places which acc to me are better, but still getting a cake from Manipal bakery is so nostalgic as many a birthday cakes of mine have been brought from there.

Away from cakes, Manipal was once a town. Seems like that ship has long sailed by what we have today is nothing lesser than a formidable cosmopolitan multinational city with infrastructure which up there with the best!

Manipalblog is very close to me as couple of good friends of mine Vinayak Prabhu and Pranita Bhat being active bloggers here.
