Silicon Valley, Bangalore, India
Bangalore - always blessed with a pleasant climate, beautiful parks, canopied avenues, and a rich cultural heritage with a cosmopolitan touch.
A city ahead of its times, Bangalore heralded the Information Technology revolution way back in the 1980s. It has earned its spot in the international arena with landmark progress in IT, bio-technology, garment manufacturing, industrial development, real estate, health, higher education and hospitality.
Silicon city has now started to see growth pangs which are painful. A 15min distance to cover 2 yrs ago now can take an hour many times. The weather that this IT city is to be used to, is fast vanishing , leaving in its wake dry scratchy heat!
Construction work seems to be in progress everywhere you look and that to my mind is contributing to the heat island effect in this garden city
Despite all this downslide Bangalore is very close to my heart. This city was my first home away from home. I was lucky to have made some precious friends there, grew professionally, got myself a lovely home, hung out at my fave places, and most importantly I found my independance there
I sincerely wish Bangalore finds a solution to all its problems soon
