Is Bangalore a good place to live in?

My views and perception about Bangalore city

If you are planning to spend a weekend here, go the pub, booze and spend the night dancing in the discotheques. Yes, bangalore rocks.

But for many other reasons, it sucks.

I may be biased and I sure could be wrong, but these are just my view points.

I have been living in bangalore for only 70 days now.(Maybe a 700 more will change my mind)

But, what is it that I dislike about bangalore…:(

1) Try bringing the vehicle(car/bike) that you own from you hometown, drive it around bangalore for sometime. You would start to notice that apart from spending for the petrol, you also are spending some substantial sum as fines/bribes to traffic policemen, why?

2) Public transport is something that the ruling political party proposes and the opposition disposes. You can often see extravagant projects discussed in local newspapers, but don’t worry they are no lesser than science fictions.

3) At bangalore, people spend more time in commuting to their work place than they actually spend there every day.

4) You can come up with 1000’s of *theoretical* possibilities going to MG Road from Malleswaram on a Friday evening.

5) You call it a `bargain` when you get a 2BHK for Rs.10000 per month rent

But what if you want to make bangalore your home? What if you get a job offer here which would force to you to stay in this city for months or years together? Could you do it ?No.

As many would argue, bangalore weather is romantic and pleasant. But how much pain could one actually go through to enjoy this weather?

Having said all this, yes I am going to be struck here for the several years to come.

ps: they say every city has got its own “pulse” that runs in to the people who live there, i guess it is going to take some more time for me to feel that in my veins. Will certainly come back and write more if things change…
