“Even though the world is more spacious and beautiful to live in, I always love to live in Bangalore.” This is the city in which I was raised and brought up till now. The sense of gratitude that I have for my land where I learnt right from alphabets to my Masters degree and still hoping to seek more of knowledge and in return, to give back my knowledge to fellow beings.  There is a drastic change in the living conditions of Bangalore, it’s changing at every blink of my eye.

I just wonder how the city is now one of the most populous places of our country. The city known as a cosmopolitan city is the best place to ‘live’ and ‘work’. The place has been a home to many recognised educational and research institutes and the main advantage is that people here are from various backgrounds and have a range of talent. Bangalore has seen a major technology boom giving ample opportunities for employment to many citizens.

Bangalore is a diverse city known for major economic and cultural activities. Living in in this city is just awesome. Personally, when I go out of station even for two days, I feel like getting back to Bangalore as soon as possible. The very essence of the place is that it’s vibrant and colourful. The city has a sense of warmth and has one of the most pleasant climate throughout the year. Therefore, Bangalore enjoys all seasons compared to other cities in India. Its a great place for hangouts and for shopping in huge malls and forums. Yes, of course, we citizens do confront substantial pollution and other socio-economic problems, and issues like maintenance of the city.

The garden city seems to have turned into a garbage city which has had its impact on public health and wellness. We have a lot of traffic issues too. There is not enough police force for the burgeoning population of the city. Metro rail construction has been causing major disturbances.

I miss the chirping of birds. I hear only the loud honking of vehicles and I am perpetually disturbed by the  chaotic traffic jams. No proper drainage system and many manholes in the roads causing disturbances while driving is pretty common. Even though there are so many flaws in the flawless city, Bangalore remains naturally the best, the way it is just because every day starts off with some expectations and ends up with some bad and good experiences.
