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?

    I fully agree with the traffic point.

    Anyone who has been on Hosur Road will agree :-)

    I’m a pub guy and I must agree with the pub statement. There is so much choice here – all making your purse empty though!

    On the Sportsmen, (sadly) most of them are cricketers!!
    Yes, I think both Pune and Kanpur have commercial flights operating out of a Defense Airstrip. The existing Bangalore airport is actually HAL’s airstrip…so in that sense is perhaps is the only one in the world to share a Public Sector Company’s airstrip. The only other airstrip I can think of is Jindal Vijayanagar Steel Township’s Airstrip, with Air Deccan starting flights to Hampi recently.
