To go off-topic is one thing, but to go off-topic to be vicious or to denigrate other cities is another. There will be people like you who offend, and people like me who defend - even if a wasteful exercise - which will eventually force the thread to be closed sooner or later.
I encourage you to try to contribute meaningfully, or stay out and let others do so instead. I have a feeling that you presume Mumbai to be a Monaco. A feeling based on the way you have worded your submit. Mumbai is heavenly indeed! Lolll...
I know this is off-topic again, but going by the way this thread has been hijacked, I no longer feel guilty about it.

I agree to every word you have spelt in your post. I am born, brought-up, studied, and am Software guy in bangalore from the beginning, My father and grandparents are from Bangalore. But the city is long gone. there is nothing as the original bangalore, the IT has changed the place like hell to hell.
Rowdies have emerged due to real-estate-boom. Fast-Life, Fast-Food, fast-money and all done without regulation, Every one looks so dead but willing to do anything for money like a mercenary.
Bangalore still lacks that comfort of being called a big city, its just that over the years the GREED has taken over the people and chaos everywhere. Everyone here including myself are looking for a lifestyle, an identity.

Note from Mod
Enough about the wealth demographics of IT folks, Bangalorians etc. - Let us stick to Rowdies and road rage. Some posts might get deleted in a clean up exercise.

Each and every city has its own share of problems, esp growing ones, and they all will improve over time. However blaming one community/profession for the ills of a city, is taking it too far. If you have read my post carefully, I have not abused any city, I have only mentioned the fact on how a poorly planned city is still attracting high rentals, if that offends you, then may be you should re visit reality.
I rest my case with this: Mumbai has over 2 crores of population, and over 40% stay in slums. It gets flooded almost every monsoon, and travel by trains/public transport is a night mare. Even then, the citizens do not blame any particular profession for this state, and at all levels there are efforts being made to improve quality of life. Road sense, and traffic flow is far better than Bangalore. More over I have not heard of cases of non marathi road users being targetted on the road, or auto wallas forming unions and hitting car drivers, for that kind of fun, its welcome to namma bangaluru!!!!
I am a Kannada speaking person, having relatives in Bangalore, even they keep harping about how there is too much of pollution, how people from other parts of India have ruined the culture!!!!, and do not agree with them at all on this.

I think the rowdies have been discussed to death. Anything else is off-topic. Closing thread.
Opening temporarily for amitoj to add some closing notes.
