I love Bangalore for what it is

Bangalore is the place I have been born and brought up in. My relationship with Bangalore began about 39 years ago with breaks in-between, when we lived outside India for some years.

Bangalore is the place I have been born and brought up in. My relationship with Bangalore began about 39 years ago with breaks in-between, when we lived outside India for some years.

The rava idlis or the panipuris happily co-exist with the pizzas and burgers here. Our own bisebelebath also coexists with  chopsuey. The city has life and the people are warm. We are also the silicon capital of India and now probably the start-up capital too. I love how we embraced marathons for a cause and how new start-ups are being built everyday.

The city would be a little cleaner though, if men were punished severely for urinating in public places. It happens throughout India but Bangalore should be the first city in India to become a zero tolerance zone. We should also strongly but peacefully protest against bad roads and get ourselves what we deserve, come what may. 

Our politicians are elected by us and they should be made to work for us and our upliftment and not their own. But most importantly, Bangaloreans should continue to remain what we are - good human beings.
