An ideal weekend in Bangalore is all about wandering around and checking out cool restaurants, music cafes, hotels, and shopping centres. There are endless cool places all around Bangalore. It’s a youthful city with good universities. I usually prefer to hang out around the central city arena, the Café Coffee Day, near UB City, is a great place to hang out. The place is cool to meet friends from all over Bangalore city. I love the coffee in Bangalore, but hate the traffic jams.

There’s some interesting things happening in Bangalore right now. The most interesting project is called Namma Metro (Our Metro). The metro rail project has been under construction for the last three years and it’s expected to start from 2016. Bangalore is expanding rapidly. The government declared an initiative to build an outer ring road too. This might not seem interesting, but it is going to make a big difference to our daily lives, as traffic and congestion is a real issue in India.

There are so many interesting characters in the city. There is a vagabond group that has a peculiar profession. I call them ‘Cowmen’. They take a cow, put nice clothes on it, and go door-to-door to collect rice, fruits and money. They are traditional spiritual people. Then there is a guy called Vijay Mallya. Many scandals follows him but people seem to forget everything because he has become one of the richest men in Bangalore by selling beer.


An advertising campaign that I thought was amazing was for a brand called Woodland Shoes. I really liked their tagline;

‘I Never Realized Where I was Walking, Until The Crack Gave Way.’

However, I really disliked the advertising for a brand of condoms, ‘Manforce Coffee Condoms’.The model in this advertising campaign is a porn film actress. It seems an indirect promotion of the porn industry in India, and considering the international spotlight that has been on India in recent times relating to gender equality, ….



Always love,

    Vikram…. Howdy, my friend… 🙂

    I haven’t been able to get by your site much, so, apologies for that… In the last few months, getting the one blog post done per day has been about all I could do, as I’ve had a lot of days with a lot of pain…not so bad this week, though….

    My excuses aside, I was glad to see you drop in over on my blog the last few days, and wanted to make sure to touch base with you, see what you’ve been up to, and say thanks…. I see by your entries here you’ve been keeping busy, so that’s good… Take care, and I’ll see you around the ‘Net….

    Ned, aka gigoid….
