You took a nap on the way?
Welcome to Bangalore. You will definitely see that this city is lot more disciplined than Hyd in terms of driving(my perception though. you can update on this point later)

How is the road from route? anythings to watch out for in particular?
I would be driving next month.

In a day, I saw a more order in the traffic in BLR. In HYD the smaller vehicles are merciless. God knows what is itching all of their bottoms? There are just too many of them.

The HYD BLR road is awwwwwful. man. Nothing could pamper me.... not beer, not music, not loneliness, not my car even.

Welcome to Bangalore, Basu. This forum certainly will be flooded with nice experiences (travelogues) of you both (akroy and yourself).

OK you have logged out of Cyberabad to Siliconabad. This situation is same here.

3) Mid priced food in BLR is horrid. (excuse me guys, I have north Indian palate, cannot digest soda in tandoori rotis and nans.)
Dude, you need to taste South Indian and that to in a andhra resturant in andhra istyle.

With Bangalore suddenly gaining notoriety as a hub for terrorism and terror related activities , i wonder how it will affect the movement of hordes of professionals from all parts of India seeking employment and domicile there?. Is it safe to take a walk, visit a mall or watch a movie anymore?.When i was growing up, i had an image of Bangalore as a well maintained retirement town. How things change!.

yes! it is safe to take a walk, visit a mall or watching a movie just like any other city. As every city has these kind of issues right from Mumbai to Varanasi as we had seen in the last couple of years. Definitely the image you had is dwindling with the passing years but that does not mean its unsafe just like any other city.

I guess it is outside perception and media hype. That is why i wanted to get a response in this thread, which is related to 'moving to Bangalore'. Thanx for your response.

Well till now BLR seems 'different'

The sun is stronger, People have a different attitude, the whole city can speak/understand English and everybody seems to have a free worldspace subscription here.

People are good here compared to other cities where people will speak only their local languages. In Bangalore, you can also speak in Hindi and you will get the response in broken hindi. Atleast, people will try to guide you properly unlike in some other cities. That's why it is called a "cosmopolitician city". The other point you will like Bangalore is for its weather.
