Bangalore is India's silicon valley. There are fast roads, fast cars, shopping malls, call centres, cocktails and miniskirts. There are also shanty towns, along with poverty and corruption.

Bangalore (also known as Bengaluru) is India's 'Silicon Valley', with fast, wide roads, gleaming malls, and expensive bars. For many, it represents the 'new India', with all its money and hype. Just like any other Indian city, dig  little deeper, and you find poverty and desperate slums.
