|Good old Bangalore - where art thou?|
Our Bangalore was once known as the Pensioner’s Paradise. Today, the only paradise that one can find here is Paradise Biriyani!

|Bangalore's very own motto!|
With the growing cosmopolitan outlook, Bangalore has certainly changed in very many aspects. But for the common man, one thing continues – “Swalpa Adjust Maadi!”
