India's Silicon Valley under water

Seems liks Bangalore, India’s Silicon Valley, couldn’t quite keep up with the heavy rainfall there in the past day or so. I’ve spent some 10-11 months in Bangalore, a couple of years back. I have fond memories of Bangalore – specially the weather & people, but I guess its not the same!

Wipro HQ drenched

The photo above shows the state of the matter as some Wipro employees walk through a water-logged compound of a Wipro corporate office after the rain battering. A excerpt from Hindustan Times (Delhi Ed.): “At a time when Infosys CEO, Narayana Murthy’s resignation from the Bangalore International Airport Ltd is big news, the city’s woeful infrastructure has been exposed once again.” Goes out to show the city’s infrastructure problems and poor civic development, maybe worsened due to inter-state migration to the tech “outsourcing” city. Bangalore, and for that matter a lot of other urban Indian cities, need to improve the civic situation if they want to invite foreign investment on some serious long-term projects.
