    And yet, Bangalore has somehow not kept pace with infrastructure development as is required for this frenetic pace of growth. Perhaps it also has the highest density of potholes per kilometre of asphalted road!

    Not that I dont admire the city! Some of my best moments and memories are also associated with bangalore…

    Good God! 12 people bitten per minute?? My son was talking of the stray dogs in the area he passes to reach his place of residence. They once even chased him and his friend who were both on a mobike, while returning home late! Hmmm…

    OK. You roped and tied me with the fashion Capital of the east, comparable to Paris.

    (running thru the streets of Bangalore, credit cards in one hand, club in the other. WHAP! Get back you visvious cur! I’ve got SHOPPING to do!!!)

    I personally feel that most of the facts are untrue. I also have received the FWDed mail about Bangalore… I can vouch for the following :

    1. Chennai (Madras) has close to 80 engineering colleges. So 21 engg colleges in Bangalore cannot be the highest in the world.

    2. Anna University (Chennai, again) has exactly 227 engineering colleges affiliated to it. Hence, 57 engg colleges affiliated to Bangalore Uni cannot be the highest in the world.

    Since these two statements are so entirely false… I doubt the validity of certain of the remaining statements.

    Hope this helps!
