Bengaluru, aah Bengalooru

What is it –
A city, town or village?
‘Twas a pensioners’ paradise it seems
Having a colonial hangover
Amidst MEG, BEL, HMT, ITI
Usurped by the silicon dump

Support Citizen Matters - independent, Reader-funded media that covers your city like no other.

With its Nagars, Towns and hallis
‘Tis an escape no more
From the heat of Hyderabad
Or the sweat of Madras
Oh, it’s not the Bangalore of yore!
