Welcome To Bengaluru

Hey .....


This is for all those mighty mighty minds coming to Bangalore in the coming months , to build for themselves a Career of their choice.

It doesnt matter if You have to IT industry or ITI Industry... surviving in Bangalore is an Art, a Tradition, A Skill...

Go through this first...

Tips to Start Your life in Bangalore..

So, that was Sabari, a friend of mine at his best. Really liked the way he presented the topic. Hope You too...

Now, may be I can add some tips to what he has already said...

1.Language

I slightly disagree to what Sabari said. I never uses Hindi. What I use is kindof a tamil mixed with 2 ounce of malayalam and a pinch of english and lots of gestures, which i think, appears like Kannada to may people around me. The bottom line is , I m getting my things done. Isn't that enough??

2. Housing

Amen to Sabari.....

3. Vehicle

Only one point to add: Even if you have all papers ready for your vehicle, its always better to avoid those White Hat Police. And if you dont have them, shoud i say?

Oh i think I have one more: Bangalorians are a bit careless on road, i refer to both motorists and pedestrians. So either be more careful than usual, or [ I m sure you will get annoyed with that pretty soon] be one of them, be reckless!!! he he.. just kidding, our safety is our own concern....

PS: a friend of mine gave me a few tricks:when ever you see a policeman ready to pick a random vehicle, just make a look on your watch, not to know the exact time, but to avoid his 'heavenly' call. or may be you can stop in front of him and ask for a near by hospital, in a very rapid manner, so that he may feel you are taking yourself to the casuality. Favourable outcome not guarenteeed. Try at your own risk.

4. Food

I totally agree with Saabari. Eating out 4times a day will make small pores in your stomach and a big hole in your pocket. See! Now we have minimum two reasons to start cooking! he he. For 95% people, its only the super that can be cooked. Better do it. Believe me, its healthy, its economical , and if you have a maid to wash ur crockery, its Fun too!!!

I beg to differ about the vehicle part ..wherin u call us(i am a part of us!!!)a little careless....i have been to some parts of kerala mainly cochin and munnar and thekkady..and if i call that driving careless ..i am making a huge huge understatement..i am not being pro-bangalore or something...actually in my hometown aka madurai...half th ppl dont know what they are doing while driving... !!!...bottomline is that...Indians(us!!!) generally have a poor and terrible etiquette in the road...we have clowns everywhere...so targetting bangalore .. ..not so fair!!!

@ Prashu

I m sorry for the offence, but cant take back the comment. I have beein Cochin for long four years, but havnt seen people riding through the oneway roads or sideway pavemets.

Infact i happened to see a dumbass riding his feoro with another dumbo in his back, over the pavement slabs, through rain. WHat a jerk! PS: I think i saw him near Bommanahalli

:P
