Does there exist a rivalry between these two
cicites? Such as SFO-LA, BOS-NYC, etc . . .

Also, which city would you prefer to live in?

Thumbs up Bangalore....

As far as software is (was) concerned, there used to be a rivalry. But I think Bangalore beats Hyd hands down. But then, my opinions are totally biased.
Blr, I think is much more cosmopolitan than Hyd. But then if you are conservative type, large part of Blr is pretty conservative too.
More schools, More/better Engineering/Medical schools in Blr.
More IT firms in Blr.
More Public Sector firms.
Better weather.
Traffic, either like Hyd or a little worse.

water problems exist everywhere in India -- even in Bangalore where bore wells are drying up.. sadly, the problem stems more from a lack of infrastructure, not natural resources.

Bangalore used to be a nice sleepy town.. now its an overcrowded mess. And nightlife is made to shut down at 11:30pm.. whats up with that?

The traffic in Bangalore is AWFUL. It just doesn't move. It will be another two/three years before Hyderabad becomes like that, unless new flyovers are built.

Bangalore is more cosmopolitan, but Hyderabad is more laid back. And Hyderabadi food is excellent.

Though I am from Coorg I decided to live in Hyderabad after studying here.

Pune (first)
….
….
….

Delhi (last)


Bangalore – Right place to work and wrong place to live.
Hyderabad - I can’t stand the heat , otherwise it is a nice place to live.
Pune – I like it.
Chennai – The heat & humidity makes me go mad
Mumbai – Too crowded
Kolkata – If it’s Salt lake , yes
Delhi – No.No.No
Kochi - Yes
Chandigar -Yes
Malgudi – O yes. But I’ll look like a cartoon character

Two weeks ago when Indian IT czar and Chairman of Wipro Ltd, Azim Premji expressed his deep concern about the business environment in and around Bangalore, the silicon valley of India, he was visibly worried. The reasons were obvious: despite posting an impressive turnover of Rs 1,759 crore and a superlative profit growth of 73 per cent in the quarter ending June 2004, he fears that infrastructural bottlenecks, higher attrition levels and rising wage costs in the city may hurt the future profitability of his company.

“We believe the problems are serious,” Premji said. Two years ago, he had expressed the same displeasure about the bad roads and power conditions in the city which caused a big flutter in the government, but nothing changed barring a few surveys conducted by the top government officials.

Premji is now thinking not to expand operations in Bangalore and is looking at Kolkata in a big way and also intends to shift some operations to this new centre which has already started operations last month. Wipro currently employs about 11,000 people in Bangalore and the Kolkata software development centre is likely to employ about 4,000 engineers in two years time.


Since Bangalore is bursting at seams the government officials at Karnataka are promoting secondary cities like Mysore, Mangalore and Hubli………[

i was living in bangalore for 2 months earlier this year, and i loved it. certainly the easiest city (that i've experienced) to live in as a foreigner, as it's so cosmopolitan. there's a nice mix of your typical indian cityness, but if it becomes too much, you can just go to mg road and have a quiet coffee. i love it

I don't think I could live for any length of time in any large Indian city without developing lethal respiratory problems. Perhaps the Basant Nagar suburb of Madras would be tolerable, or maybe Green Park in New Delhi. On the whole, I'd rather live in the countryside, or in a village like Masinagudi (TN) or Gallibedu (KN). Someplace in the Himalayas would also be nice, like Old Manali.

Water isn't that bad a problem in Hyderabad. You stockpile and adjust to the tap schedule. But, I can assure you that none of my relatives gives it a second thought and they have plenty of water for bathing. It sin't like in Mumbaii where you have shrines dedicated to the tap god to improve the odds..

I haven't been to most of the cities on the list. So far, Varanasi would be my first preference. I'd certainly put Delhi ahead of Mumbai, tho.

Delhi
Just a day's drive away from the mountains...
Look around and chose your own ground
For long you live and high you fly
And smiles you'll give and tears you'll cry
And all you touch and all you see
Is all your life will ever be...


Last ride : Bhutan, Arunachal, Sikkim.. (Where do I ride next?)

Talking Bangalooru

Bangalore for me. My home town, all my kin folks live there, etc etc. Hence I am was too biased and love being biased about Bangalore. Never care to even consider any of the other cities you mention. Lived out of India way too long for that. So Bangalore is THE place for me...
