A good place

Weather is excellent. You will find yourself sweating in very less situations. But travelling sucks. Too much congestion. It consumes more of your productive hours which you can use to arrange resources. City is wide. I do not have any offemce in saying if bus routes can be shown in english as well as kannada it will be good. Not only, kannada. This brings a thought of sepratist which is not good. Culture of karnataka is very rich it can never be invaded by outsiders. Public spaces are good but much of its is modern do not show any culture of karnataka may be due to IT hub focus. More can be written but it need time.

Very good people and very much helpful . Excellent climate . Food is cheap and hygienic . Most items sold on MRP. Even medicines. Unlike Delhi. I would like to permanently settle in Bangalore along with my family . I will be better if you can learn to speak and write Kannada . From airport you get excellent buses to travel to cities. Uber and Ola are available . Most shops accept payment through payTM . Houses on rent are easily available but as per their existing practice you need to deposit 11 months are to be paid .
