Bengaluru is well-known for its congested roads as well as its strong IT industry. People having trouble driving on the city’s potholed roads have been reported on numerous occasions in the past. And all stories have unfavourable outcomes associated with them. However, one event shows that Bengaluru’s annoying and exhausting traffic jams could also have a positive outcome. You’ll smile at one love story that developed as a result of being snarled up in traffic. And this love story has gone viral after it was shared on Twitter.
According to a Reddit user, he met his wife close to Sony World Signal, where they later became friends. He was dropping her off one day when the construction of the Ejipura flyover forced them to get stuck in traffic.
They chose a different route away from the gridlocked area because they were both irritated and hungry. They went for dinner together, and their romance began from that moment.
By adding a humorous twist to his romantic love story, the author illustrated how unfavorable the construction situation had been in the city that served as an IT hub.
He disclosed that the entire incident took place five years later. The flyover is still not finished, despite the couple dating and getting married during the ensuing years.
The Reddit user from Bengaluru wrote, “I’ve mentioned this in another thread, but I met my wife near Sony World Signal. I haven’t put the whole story there, but the gist is that one day I was dropping her home (only knew her as a friend back then) and we got stuck somewhere nearby because of the Ejipura flyover work. We got frustrated and were hungry so we diverted and went and had dinner nearby. Anyway, I’ve dated her for 3 years since then and been married for 2 years, but the 2.5 km flyover is still under construction.”
On Twitter, a screenshot of his Reddit post was posted, entertaining thousands of users.

Even though traffic congestion in the city is a horrible problem, people seem to have adjusted to it. Numerous online memes about Bengaluru’s traffic have been made, and it has gained some prominence.
A romantic short film called “Silk Board, A Traffic Love Story” was even inspired by Bengaluru’s congested Silk Board junction.
