It’s not THAT great a city, except for the fact that:
- Bangalore is known as the Garden City of India because of its climate, greenery and the presence of many public parks, including the Lal Bagh and Cubbon Park.
- The diversity of cuisine available (…) Udupi restaurants are very popular and serve predominantly vegetarian, regional cuisine. As there is sizeable population from Tamil Nadu, there are various restaurants that serve authentic Tamil food.
- Bangalore has many clubs and bars, and is sometimes referred to as the Pub Capital of India. Popular nightspots in Bangalore include HiNT, Taika, Pecos, Tavern Inn and TGIF. Bangalore is also now known as the Rock City of India for Western rock concerts, with Iron Maiden, Aerosmith, Scorpions, Roger Waters, Uriah Heep, Jethro Tull, Joe Satriani, INXS, No Doubt, Safri Duo, Deep Purple, Mark Knopfler, The Rolling Stones, and Bryan Adams, among others, having performed in the city.
- English is the lingua franca of the city’s white-collar workforce.
- Bangalore is headquarters to several public manufacturing heavy industries such as Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL) and the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO).
- Bangalore is called the “Silicon Valley of India” because of the large number of Information Technology companies located in the city which contribute 38% of India’s Rs. 100,000 crore (US$ 22 billion) IT and software export market.
- Because of its elevation, Bangalore enjoys a pleasant and equable climate throughout the year, with temperatures rarely crossing the 30C mark except during the months of April and May.
- It’s the place where I’ve grown up. It’s home.
Screw Delhi, screw it, I say. Damn the place to the inferno, may future generations be rid of this blot of extremities and hypocrisy.
