I was pointed to this article in The Hindu newspaper by my dad today “IT sector has done more harm than good to the city“. Bangalore as a brand has taken a huge beating over the last few years. Roads, garbage are a huge problem. But partly we citizens too are to be blamed for the mess.
Well, literally our editors at Oneindia.in were on the streets to check out what was happening in front of our office. Bangalore is one city where digging keeps happening all the time.
Few months ago Bangalore was upset with their beloved elected members (MLAs) because they were on a ‘study tour‘ to Argentina, Chile and Peru. At times we citizens jump to conclusions, we all thought they were wasting money. But now we learn they went for something good – they surely had something to bring back from Buenos Aires (Argentina). According to the Bangalore Mirror article Buenos Aires shares the same problem as Bangalore – uncleared garbage! But I wonder if Bangalore inherited this garbage problem after our MLAs study tour.

Wishing all of you a Happy New Year and a prosperous 2012. For the past few years a close group of friends, with families, spend some quality time together away from home for New Years. It is one evening I look forward to as I do enjoy the company of my friends – the special ones.
