Bangalore and IT
The Economist* has come down rather hard on Bangalore’s crumbling infrastructure, but says that India’s IT and BPO boom is just beginning. Priceless line: “India’s advantages are so great that, however bad its aim, it will be hard-pressed to shoot itself in the foot.”
But the verdict on Bangalore is rather bleak. It does say that Bangalore’s problems are not really terminal, but a recovery is possible only if the Government actually builds all the roads and flyovers it had set out to. But from the horror stories I hear coming out of Bangalore, Dharam Singh is completely uninterested in the task. He and his cronies are only interested in making money by controlling the allotment of land at the outskirts of Bangalore.
