Reached Alpy for holidays after a long time...Was happy to note that lots of new construction is happening around town after a long period of lull..And these are all 5 storeys plus office/commercial blocks. But i can also see that lots of businesses have closed down. The Bhima jeweller tower in Mullakkal is in the same status as a year back. Dont know what happened to those guys. And the Maheswari guys are sitting on a wonderful commercial plot doing nothing!! Considering the awesome location, any project would have been successful. I am planning to visit the Reliance Mall for shopping this week..have to see in person how the first mall in Alpy is...
