We are currently staying in the area called Indiranagar, which is a hip and up-coming part of Bangalore. If I would map Bangalore to LA, Indiranagar is like Melrose of Bangalore. There are lots of hip and nice restaurants and stores (and rather youngish).
Only If, ONLY IF the government can spend a little bit more effort to fix the sidewalks and do something about the garbage, Indiranagar would become perfectly beautiful. I wonder if there are any foundations or organizations supporting such efforts here in Bangalore.
