Business in Bangalore

Business in Bangalore - Bangalore major business district is M.G. Road and the areas around it. This is the nerve centre of town, where not only all the big banks and financial institutions are, but also some of the best restaurants and lounge bars, some of the city's most expensive hotels, handicraft emporia of several Indian states, the passport office, excellent bookshops, amusement arcades, and a brand-new mall with a fabulous food court and a state-of-the-art multiplex. This is the hangout of the city's population, its student community, and old Bangalore families who remember what it was like when their city was still their own and a Sunday treat at the Lakeview Ice Cream Parlour was the most coveted thing in the world.

Dominating east and south-east Bangalore are the up market, cosmopolitan neighbourhoods of M.G. Road, BangaloreIndira agar and Koramangala, the preferred living quarters of expats and immigrants to the city. Koramangala once boasted of more software companies and start-ups per square kilometer than any other part of the city, and today some of the wealthiest Bangaluruans make their homes here. Indiranagar, and the adjoining Defense Colony, once swampy, mosquito-ridden areas in the boondocks, command some of the highest real estate prices in the city, and still have some of the India's most cutting edge scientific institutions - the National Aerospace Laboratories (NAL), the ISRO Satellite Centre (ISAC), the Aeronautical Development Agency (ADA), and the Defense Research and Development Organization (DRDO). Beyond Indiranagar in the same direction is Whitefield, home to the Sathya Sai Baba Ashram, the trees hip California-style gated residential community of Palm Meadows, and the International Tech Park (JTPL), one of the main hubs of the city's technology companies.

Even the mere mention of the words 'South Bangalore' conjures up a mental image of traditional Bangalore, where thrift is encouraged and conspicuous consumption frowned upon, where temples and 'pune' vegetarian restaurants abound, where simple living and high thinking is a way of life, where people still live in large houses set in sprawling grounds, and speak Kannada as a matter of course. South Bangalore encompasses the neighbourhoods of Jayanagar (of the broad, gracious avenues and Bangalore most precious green resource, Lalbagh), Basavanagudi (of the historic old temples), and the vast campus of the Indian Institute of Management. Further south on the Hosur Road is the Narayana Hrudayalaya, the cardiac hospital that has played its part in cementing Indo-Pak friendship by successfully treating Pakistani children with cardiac conditions, and is now a major hub for health tourism, and Electronics City, another IT hub where Infosys Technologies has its magnificent campus. Also towards the south are the Art of Living Ashram, and the tiger safaris of the Bannerghatta National Park.

In the geographic centre of present-day Bangalore is the bustling Old City, home to tourist attraction like Tipu Sultan's Summer Palace. Less than 3 km away is the grandeur of the state legislature building, the Vidhana Soudha, the gracious colonial-style Attara Kacheri, which now houses the High Court of Karnataka, and the green sprawl of the Cubbon Park.
