Recently declared as a megacity, Bangalore or Bengaluru is the capital city of the Indian state of Karnataka. With a population crossing ten million, Bangalore is now considered to be the third populous among all the cities in India. It is located on the Deccan Plateau in the peninsular region of southern India. Although a highly cross-cultural crowd dwells in this city, the natives of Bangalore are called Kannadigas and they speak in Kannada. Bangalore is a major fast-growing metropolis in India. The city is also commonly referred to as the "Silicon Valley of India" or the "IT capital of India" as it has been the center of the IT boom in India. Many Indian technological organizations such as ISRO, HAL, Infosys, etc. are all headquartered in the city. This demographically diverse city has supported many flourishing start-up companies as well. The welcoming weather of Bangalore is indeed a relief to the hard-working people of the city; however, the traffic situation in the city is quite notorious. Bangalore has also become a seat of education, with pristine academic institutions such as The IISc or the Indian Institute of Science, the IIMB or the Indian Institute of Management (Bangalore), the National Law School of India and many more prestigious academies being based in the city.
