because if we arrive late we won,t find a seat . The musical fountain started at 7.00 pm.After the show while were crossing the bridge it started and then there was a total chaos,everyone was running when it started raining heavily..We took shelter under a shop but even  waiting after 20 minutes,the rain showed no sign of stopping.We decided that there was no point in standing here so we ran towards the parking lot and called the driver. He came and picked us up.It was a total traffic jam as thousands  were trying to get out in their vehicles at the same time.We reached mysore at 8.45 pmand we returned to the hotel.Comments are welcome.
