Richie Rich …

Now that we almost stopped cribbing about the natural resources this news made my day…

Bangaloreans are getting seriously rich, millionaires by the dollar yardstick. The city is the third-largest hub for high-networth individuals (HNIs), after Mumbai and Delhi.

Bangalore is home to over 10,000 individual dollar millionaires and around 60,000 super-rich people who have an investable surplus of Rs 4.5 crore and Rs 50 lakh respectively

Guys no kidding, the facts are self explanatory, yet another crowd pulling reason for the city, yet another scare of moving ‘underworld’s affection too !!

    BTW, which natural resources post are you ref. to, Rajesh?. If I recall right, nobody commented on ‘that’ natural resource (tree-felling!) post!
    And seriously, you being a veteran in the tech industry, aren’t you amongst the millionaires? Come on now, admit it! ;)

    Ravi, you got me right, the ‘tree’ story is sad…

    Chitra / SB, no it was not based on ‘pool’ post.

    India may be a poor country – but Indians are not!!
