Facts(!) about Bangalore

This has been doing rounds on the Net as forwarded emails for quite sometime now.

I’m very curious to validate the authenticity of these claims…

The “so-called” facts about Bangalore:

1. Bangalore has highest number of pubs in Asia.
2. Bangalore is the only city in the world to have commercial and defense airport operating from the same strip. (What about Pune???)
3. Bangalore has highest number of public sectors and government Organizations in India.
4. Bangalore has the highest density of traffic in India.
5. Bangalore has produced the maximum international sportsmen in India for all sports ahead of even Mumbai & Delhi.
6. Bangalore has produced the maximum number of scientists considered for Nobel Prize nominations.

What say you?

Got some charge?

What is it? They call it a charging station, I prefer phone losing station instead. I have noticed quite a few folks forget their phones on these. “And it charged happily thereafter” types! So much so that I wonder if these gadgets are designed and operated by mobile phone thieves :)

Crime and Beauties

Not sure how many of you know the latest style of crime in the city, I was bit shocked when i went thru this article in yesterday’s Prajavani (a local Kannada daily)
The story is all about a beautiful & well dressed woman’s trapping the Men in the city.

Kodai in November?

It is so terribly cold that even the honeymooners stay away from Kodai during the winter. The lake seems deserted in the late evenings and the shops close early for the night. But there is something pleasant about Kodai in the winter, when the mist lingers all day and the afternoon is hard to tell from the morning.


A lone cycle awaits the tourist at the Kodai lake. The best way to get around this beautiful lake is by cycling around it

La Villa Potipatti

An afternoon at Villa Potipatti, a heritage property at Mallesnwaram

(With additional inputs and photographs by Anita)

Lunch and dinner served in the shade of a huge mango tree in the garden of an old style bungalow on a mild, wintry Sunday afternoon. No loud music or huge crowds or long waits for a place. The only noise you can hear is the sound of chattering squirrels on the trees with a bird periodically trying to get in a word edgewise.

The lovely courtyard where you can relax with your meal under the trees

The meal consisting of soup, salad, main course (choice of vegetarian and non vegetarian available on the daily menu) and dessert is priced at Rs.350 plus taxes.

Sounds tempting?

St. Mary’s Church, Shivajinagar, Bangalore

Visited by thousands of believers and pilgrims and celebrated for 10 long days during St. Mary’s feast during the first fortnight of September every year, this church is the only one in Karnataka to be elevated to the status of a minor basilca.

This church has always been a part of my life since my school going days. Praying at this church can give anyone a tremendous sense of peace and calm. Watching the devotion and piety on devotees faces in this church can be deeply moving experience.

Recently this church has undergone a massion renovation. It looks magnificent & grand now what with liberal use of granite and fresh paint. Here are before and after pictures of this magnificent church that is one of Bangalore’s treasures.

Bangalore Traffic

I got a mail from a regular reader, Thiru Murugan. He had forwarded me the link of a web page, which dispplays the status of bangalore traffic. Do check this link. Its really cool.
