Arguably one of Asia’s fastest growing cities, Bangalore tops the list of the best places to live in India. Home to more than 250 high-tech companies including IT giants such as Infosys and Wipro, Bangalore is now known the world over as the IT capital of India, driving India’s economic growth and making a place for itself on the global business map as India’s Silicon Valley.
Bangalore is one of the best cities in India for management education, and has captured the imagination of people around the world. Highly cosmopolitan in character, the city is home to several large corporations, and has a mix of industries – new economy companies engaged in IT, bio-tech and avionics, alongside old economy manufacturing companies in the garment, silk, machine tools and small scale electronics. Bangalore is a great laboratory for understanding trends in any sector. Bangalore is a new age city combined with a certain old world charm.
In between all the glitz and fancy malls, one can still find long, tree lined roads and sprawling gardens to take a walk in while enjoying the absolutely fabulous climate that lends a laid back charm of a sleepy pensioner’s paradise to the city. It is the harmony with which the city accommodates contrasting cultures and opposites that makes the Bengaluru experience truly unique.
