Long time readers of this blog know my abject dislike of the city of Bangalore. As a city, I thought Bangalore fell way short of Madras or Bombay or even Trichy. You might have the best climate in the world, you might have the most IT companies knocking on your doors, but if as a city, you lack the spirit and feel of a city, you can’t grow much at all.
I am not saying this because I am a Chennai resident. Or for sentimental reasons – being a frequent visitor to Bangalore, and having spent some considerable time there haggling, walking, cursing and getting caught in traffic jams, I think Madras is far better in most respects. Bangalore comes across as a cold, aloof city.
What triggered this particular post was this story, in the Indian Express. I absolutely, whole-heartedly and unconditionally agree with Vasanthi. OK, not absolutely. Madras’ roads still need a little improvement, but Mount Road is prolly the best road in South India. MG road is but a poor substitute.
