first of all I really thank you all for taking time out of your busy schedule and taking an Initiative to read my blog.
Because of awesome peoples like you only I get motivation to rise in my endeavor.
Long story short. I have been staying in Bangalore since past two years and these two years have been like a roller coaster ride for me, full of ups and down . When life teaches you lot of important things of which you didn’t ever care to ponder upon when you were in you hometown.
But overall this city has given me a Big Bag full of memories which I will cherish, probably 50 years from now on, while sitting on my chair in my small garden getting immense by the beautiful sunset while enjoying the most satisfying tea I Could ever have.
So in this Blog post I will share my personal favorites things which a stupid, awkward, and narcissist writer like me really enjoy doing
How to reach
Bangalore is extremely well-connected by regular flights from Delhi, Mumbai and most other important cities in India and also has international carriers flowing in and out of the Bengaluru International Airport, which is located about 40 kilometres from the main city. A taxi from the airport would easily take about 60 minutes to reach the city.
Bangalore is well-connected by a network of buses from cities like Goa, Mumbai, Pune, Coimbatore and Mangalore. The options range from regular buses to air-conditioned, Volvo and sleeper coaches, which totally depends on your preference. While some of the buses are run by Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation, there are also a number of private bus operators who run inter-city buses to and from Bangalore.
Bangalore has two important railway stations – Bengaluru City Railway Station and Yeswantpur Junction. Both railway stations have regular trains running from Delhi, Mumbai, Pune and other major cities. For travelling within Bangalore, there is Namma Metro (with limited connectivity), which is an intra-city rail network set up by the Bangalore Metro Rail Corporation.
Enjoying the metro ride.
Bangalore has been blessed with the metro in the recent years only. I have been to lot of places in India but Bangalore needed that desperately, more desperately than your clingy girlfriend. But the major problem with the Bangalore Metro is that it’s not available in the whole city by now. Major traffic prone areas of Bangalore like Kormangala, Yelahanka, Silk Board still doesn’t have access with the metro yet. Government is taking the fruitful steps but it will take time.
Stupid as it sounds it’s one of the most awkward thing to do in any city right..!!. I mean only an insane person can enjoy sitting in the huge moving tablet which moves through the whole city and looking outside the thick square glass window squeezed by the crowd of unknown smelly people. Trust me i’m not being sarcastic.
But I really love doing that. Observing people and talking with them has always fascinated me. Listening to there life stories about how they ended up here and telling them about yourself and making them your friend has always made me happy
I will tell you one Incident. Once I was travelling from Mysore Road to M.G Road, then I encountered with a foreigner. She was dressed up in the black shirt with a pair of jeans, looking little puzzled. I asked her ” How may I helped you”, and I helped her in her small query. Later I found out that she was a war veteran and has served in an American army for almost 5 years and has come to India for seeking peace. After that we became friends and I took her on the small tour of Bangalore. How cool is that.
Night life of Bangalore
Bangalore is said to be the night life capital of the India with most number of Pubs in the whole county. In Bangalore you can have scarcity of water but not of Liquor
Which so ever area you go in here you will encounter with some really good restaurant or some party place. Which will welcome you with the open heart
One significant thing that helps this party ground of India to fuel up is it’s diverse, young, and enthusiastic crowd. I mean where else can you find crowd from almost all states of India dancing on the beats of Avicii. Go to any Gastro Pub in Bangalore during weekend and you find the true essence of Party Animal. Probably all of the people there will be Unknown to you but they have one common motive”Live the night”.
Young and energetic people with really friendly and cooperative staff will welcomes the guest with the open heart
Some of the really cool places where you can have some real fun are
1. Church street social( church street)
Located near M.G Road, this iconic pub Bangalore is Party Ground for true Party animals, which is always swarm by the young people. With really funky decor like wooden benches, jute cushions, concrete pillars and industrial piping this place is like a art gallery. This Party palace also has lot of #tags symbols embroidered almost everywhere, I see that as really unique marketing strategy.
With huge area of almost 6000 sq feet. This place is divided into two areas Lower area is where you can sit your friends and chill and can enjoy there exotic menu and upper area is where the party goes in. It has one huge room where projector is places, it has some games also, so people who really wants to get indulge in the game while having their beer, its’s a perfect yes.

Bangalore is one of those places in India which is famous for it’s all year soothing temperature. We live in a Mediterranean country so having such a blissful weather is a blessing for anyone. And people from Bangalore is blessed with it.
Doesn’t matter which time of the year you come here, you will be welcomed by Bangalore’s glorious weather, which is same all the year, apparently.
My personal recommendation is to carry your umbrella as well few hoodies, if you’re visiting the city because you never know which side of the weather you will be faced.Only problem is that it has lot of unpredictable rains sometimes. It won’t last for long, but long enough to make you drenched if you’re outside. So it’s always recommended to carry one of each
Mouth craving food options
If you’ re here. It won’t take you much time to realize the outcome of Globalization in Bangalore, how tremendously it has affected the life style of the people around here, and the recent changes in the culinary culture of the Bangalore is the best example of such an adverse change.
Due to it’s hike in the working class people and number of students because of rise in the number I.T company and Colleges, people from all around the country and globe are moving in, for seeking better future with better life style which they can’t get their in their natives.
And to satisfy their taste buds Bangalore has seen lot of different restaurant opening in the recent few years.
If you’re the one really who really enjoys different cousins from around the globe and county,trust me you have come to the right place to satisfy your carving.
From authentic french dishes to the rustic Andhra style it has tremendous diversity when it comes to the food culture. You only need to be at the right place to enjoy the awesome food you could ever ever have
Here are some of my favorites with the small details
1 Meghna foods (Hyderabadi)
Located in the suburbs like Jayanagar, kormangala and many other this places has exclusive range of Hyderabadi food to offer. They have their very own Hyderabadi Style Biryani which could be more addictive than drugs some time.

But, for the people who lives for spice in their life, this place is one spot destination for them.
their are lot of other options available when it comes to Hyderabadi food like
