Beantown Boomtown: Bangalore in the World of Words
Jayanth Kodkani, R. Edwin Sudhir
Rupa & Company, 2007 - Bangalore (India) - 339 pages
From Hartford to Ho Chi Minh City, from Cairo to Copenhagen, Bangalore is known as a brand. But the idea of Bangalore extends beyond its wealth of software programming and BPO services. The city may now be a whiz kid of the world, but behind it looms the shadow of a brooding senior citizen who grew up amidst tree-lined avenues, conversations over 'by-two' coffee, and a passion for art as much as science and technology.
