Garden City

A very short review of Bangalore!!!

The city which is known for its greenery, even from the days of Krishnaraja Wodeyar IV (1884-1940) remained with Mysore State, after Independence, with Maharaja of Mysore as the ruler.

And Bangalore is also the first city to have hydroelectric powered electricity in India. Bangalore experienced rapid growth a decade before and after the independence, and saw the arrival of many immigrants from different parts of India.

In the decades that followed, Bangalore's private sector flourished and especially the manufacturing base developed with a lot of private companies being setup in the city. The city witnessed the real estate boom in the early 1980's and 90's and the investors converted large spaces into apartments and the trend still continues and changed the face of the city from a sleepy 'Pensioners Paradise' to the most Happening city in India. And later from 90's onwards it turned out to be the Silicon Valley of East and still continues stronger..........

Planning to write more about India and Bangalore in particular, all those interesting facts which I would be posting and sharing with you all in the coming days...........

Indolence is a delightful but distressing state; we must be doing something to be happy. Action is no less necessary than thought to the instinctive tendencies of the human frame.
