Off late Bangalore has seen a steep rise in exotic fruit sales by street vendors. Fruits like strawberries, figs, peaches, lychees and plums which were considered exotic and expensive at one time can now be seen sold alongside unripe ‘totapuri’ mangoes, cucumbers and guavas smeared with salt and chilli powder at every other street corner.

This in a way is symbolic of the progress that Bangalore has made over the last decade making its presence felt on the world map.
