    i do not agree with all the data on bangalore,specially
    on girls.girls in bangalore r’n’t so good looking(leave away being beautiful) to be famous for.
    as regards it being called ‘silicon valley’,be informed that in usa/other america/europe silicon valley means a place where the semiconductor metal silicon is melted ,processed into silicon ingots,silicon wafers,silicon chips ,silicon transistor components.so bangalore is wrongly called as silicon valley because it hardly produces any silicon components.
    being called as fashion capital also not true as very high no’s of fashion parades and variety of attires r seen in mumbai and delhi

    Bangalore has worst Infrastructure in india compare to other major cities

  6. Pradeep said

    Its possible that among the many cities in India, Bangalore may have difficulty in maintaining high standards in infrastructure…I am not from the city…have lived here only for about 11 months…but man this city impresses me so much…and ‘worst’ is a very harsh word to use…

    sorry to say… but i feel most of the facts are wrong… highest no. of engg. colleges – greater noida(42); engg colleges affiliated to uptu – about 350.. these two i am damn sure… as far as other facts are concerned it seems more like thoughts of some bangalore lover rather than researched truth.
