The COVID-19 pandemic significantly accelerated the adoption of work-from-home (WFH) practices. The surge in work-from-home culture during COVID-19 has had a profound and lasting impact on how work is structured and performed, leading to a more flexible and dynamic future of work. The pandemic demonstrated that many jobs could be performed remotely, leading to a lasting shift towards hybrid work models. However, the 'Work-From-Traffic' culture is witnessing a surge in many metro cities, especially Bengaluru.

Though technically there is no such work model, as per netizens, Bengaluru is promoting a 'Work-From-Traffic' culture like no other city. Recently, social media has been flooded with videos in which IT professionals are seen attending meetings online over mobile or laptop. Mostly, such professionals draw the attention of other commuters who record the incident on their mobile phones. 

Recently, one such video emerged on social media in which a girl is seen attending a meeting on her mobile while driving a two-wheeler. The girl is seen waiting near a traffic signal post. Several other commuters can be seen waiting at the post in a long queue. 

The video is shared on X (formerly Twitter) by SHAAN SUNDAR with a caption reading, "Works on the road too, What else is done? That's right, Check the signal." (sic)

Soon after the video surfaced, it went viral on social media with netizens sharing it massively. By now, the video has been viewed over 853K times and garnered over 5K likes. Even the comments section is flooded with hilarious notes and a few also raised concerns.

One user wrote, "This is called Work Place Flexibility." (sic)

A second user wrote, "Bengaluru ne IPL fans ki, And pure India ke employees ki zindagi kharab kardi." (sic)

"Aise accidents nahi honge toh kyaa hoga," wrote a third user. (sic)

A few others also shared similar experiences of job life in Bengaluru.

One user penned, "My commute is closer to 4hrs every day and most meetings happen when I am driving back and forth. There are not many options around." (sic)

Another wrote, "I have been to Bangalore. I wanted to ride the Tuk Tuks. I got on one and got stuck in traffic. And I took meetings from there. It was a fun and unique experience.." (sic)
