"Where else can you stroll through the gleaming high-tech Bangalore campus of Infosys only hours after getting stuck in a traffic jam on a major highway caused by a collision between a tractor and an ox cart? "

I somehow don't appreciate the way they say it...Most of these foreign authors have made cliched statements like these a fashion accessory. Agreed that it doesn't happen in the developed countries as widely as it does here... but the fact you spend a great deal of time in traffic jams in cities like LA too.

I also don't like the way the third point is put.

I like the last statement though.
