Future IT Hub?
- Given another episode of infra woes in Bangalore, questions are being asked, again, as to why no other city can emerge as the IT hub?
- Let me share with you a real world experience from my professional life, which I hope will answer this +
+ question to some extent.
- Many moons ago, I was consulting for a big developer, who for some reason had huge land bank in Mysore.
- A part of their leadership believed that given the proximity of Mysore to Bangalore, IT/ITES office demand will spill into Mysore as well.
+ Some others were skeptical and this is where my company came into picture.
- How do you address this question?
- Well, we devised a plan where we basically went and met a wide variety of IT/ITES companies in Bangalore and Mysore to take their opinion on Mysore as possible +

Being in the center of the #bangalorerains, I feel people r still unaware about ground realities:
- No water restoration in societies in Bellandur for 3-4 weeks. That means not just drinking water. No water in Bathrooms. Not a single drop.
- Electricity is there...
...but on the verge of going out anytime.
- This is me sitting in Sterling society right opposite Ecospace, the water on the road is not going away since 30-40 hours. It will be 2 days by the evening. No action plan in visibility to solve this. I see govt has abandoned this area
- Societies with 2 level basement parking have cars fully submerged in water for more than 24 hours now. There is no sign of pumping out water because the source of water keeps filling the basement with more speed.
It looks like our cars are submerged in a lake for weeks...

Bangalore sits above 2900ft, one have to be master in bad planning to flood a high altitude, rich metro city.

All cities are not made equal, cities like Mumbai & Chennai with their flat terrain, costal tides, heavy rainfall are geographically flood vulnerable.
I meant, places like Bangalore, flood mitigation is easier & less trivial/complex. You need to follow gradient, valleys.Higher flow speed meant small drain could evacuate more water, it doesn't stagnate in this terrain. Old Bangalore withstood these rain with avg drain system 1/n
Chennai/Mumbai sit in 5-7m height, water flow very slowly, stagnate more. In these "Mega cities", canal depth cant go above 5m(shallow), otherwise sea water will enter the city. They also receive heavy rainfall. So, flood mitigation is non-trivial and complex plan is required 2/n

Update on Day #1
We are discussing whether to keep a dog 🐕 or something like fish.
Day #1 contd.

ICSE student in my room was flaunting how they have read classics like Mcbeth and Great Expectations in school. The KVian and CBSE pass out in me has started reading it already. We don't flaunt and we aren't easily impressed. Image
