Ramesh on May 05, 2024:
How are Bengaluru, Pune and Mysuru considered pleasant weather cities when their temperature crosses 40°C?
Calling Bengaluru, Mysuru and Pune as having pleasant weather is ridiculous.
Bengaluru has worst weather in summer.
Chinnarajan on Apr 30, 2024:
Bangalore climate has become the same as Tamil Nadu cities. There is extreme summer heat in Bangalore nowadays.
Temperature is reaching 40°C in Bangalore in April. Bangalore weather is just like Tiruchirapalli, Madurai, Kallakurichi, Vellore, Coimbatore and Chennai in summer.

Dubai is the worst city, this city is of no significance. It would be much better if I shift to India forever and spend my entire life than this hellhole polluted Dubai. Mumbai is way better than Dubai in my opinion.
Urvashi on Jul 30, 2022:
Bangalore is a miserable, repulsive and one of the most disgusting places in the world. The lakes, Vrishabavathi River of Bangalore are obnoxiously and dangerously polluted. The people of Bangalore are the worst people. Burglary, murder, racism, persecution, molestations and gangrape are very common throughout Bangalore. All the Kannada news channels of Bangalore are filled with hooligans and rowdies as their journalists and news anchors. Many people from religious minorities are severely persecuted in Bangalore. The lakes of Bangalore are sinks for human waste and industrial effluent. Water borne diseases, Asthma, Pneumonia, hairfall, dandruff, dust allergy, cancer and skin rashes are very common throughout Bangalore.
Vishal on Jul 03, 2022:
I am a B.Tech Civil Engineering passout from VJTI Mumbai and working as a Zomato delivery valet in Mumbai. I am skilled in motorbike racing. I am tired of the pollution and claustrophobia in Mumbai and planning to move to Bangalore soon. I desperately want to work and get recruited as an Agile Scrum Master in Google.
Neelabh Varma on Dec 17, 2021:
Bengaluru has high levels of dust and air pollution. The water bodies are severely polluted. Kengeri river has become a drainage. Bengaluru, Pune, Chennai, Hyderabad and NCR are filled with millions of useless MBA graduates and useless engineers from non-CS non-IT background, who are working in Software Companies. As Akram Khan rightly mentioned, all the software companies of India are a waste. Indians copy ideas and products of western countries. The software company employees of India are the WORST in the world. Most Indians are talented as "fake marketers", and don't possess genuine software skills and acumen. The water quality of Bengaluru is worst. Bengaluru, Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Chennai, Hyderabad, Ahmedabad and Kolkata are hellholes of the world.
Chandan Tyagi on Nov 13, 2021:
I am having severe dandruff and hair loss due to the dry climate of Bengaluru. The water quality in Bengaluru is the worst. My lips and nose are bleeding because of the dry climate and dust of Bengaluru. My dandruff and hair are pathetic because of my stay in Bengaluru.

Covid positive cases always increase sharply in India during December onwards. During September to November, the positive cases decline to an all-time low, without any social distancing, without face masks and no sanitization.
Bengaluru traffic and health will be disasters if 'Return To Office' policy is enforced by software companies.
Rajiv on Oct 20, 2021:
Bangalore still has worst traffic. One can only determine the fate of Bangalore traffic if all software employees start returning to office. The traffic congestion at Bangalore will be unimaginably terrible when that happens.
Complete the metro lines throughout the city soon especially at Outer Ring Road, Electronic City, Whitefield and Mahadevapura.
Manivannan on Oct 18, 2021:
The taxpayers money is looted by the Government here in Bengaluru and throughout India. The software professionals in Bengaluru are all high taxpayers and we get peanuts in return from the Government. Tax is deducted from our salary by the software companies.
Many roads in Bengaluru are filled with potholes


The Indian and Karnataka governments and software companies only know to loot taxes from the software employees and gives us absolutely "nothing" back.
Anonymous on Jul 30, 2021:
All over social media, you will find Indians saying that when a city has more population, it is more developed. Having more population DOES NOT DENOTE development by any means. Indians are fools. In fact, more population leads to more burden on the natural resources, infrastructure and high population leads to pollution, congestion, backbiting and more spread of diseases. So, cities having high population in India shows that rape culture is abundant in these places. Control rape culture and molestation in India, and automatically in turn, the population, pollution and deforestation will also be reduced.
Also where do the taxes go? Having such high population signifies that all the taxes paid are totally mismanaged and the citizens get nothing in return.
Mithun on Mar 28, 2021:
These environmentalists can clean up all the lakes,encroachments and also plant more trees beside the footpaths and medians in Bangalore. Instead these foolish environmentalists are wasting all their energy in opposing the infrastructure and civil engineering projects in Bangalore and elsewhere in Karnataka and all over India.
Dhawan P on Mar 12, 2021:
All the environmentalists in India are hooligans and thugs. These environmentalists are government stooges that only cause grief and misery and delay the useful infrastructure projects. Why don't these environmentalists clean up all the polluted, encroached river and lakes of Bengaluru? These environmentalists have worst mentality.
Varun Rawat on Mar 12, 2021:
Where are those jobless environmentalists now? Atleast they can take a baby step in trying to clean the severely polluted and encroached water bodies and dusty localities of Bengaluru. These cheat environmentalists can't even afforest any place in Indian megacities.These good-for-nothing hypocrite environmentalists are famous in opposing any development in Karnataka that happens outside Bengaluru. They are known for their foolish objections to any useful infrastructure. India is home to the most hypocrite double-standard fake environmentalists in the world.
Manoj Reddy on Mar 08, 2021:
Having lived in Bengaluru I know the actual reality of that place. Bengaluru is a shithole to say the least. I am glad I don't stay here and will never want to visit that place again. All the lakes and water bodies of Bengaluru are nauseatingly polluted. Dust is absolutely everywhere any anywhere. Any traffic cop that stays in Silk Board or Yeshwanthpur junction for a day will get admitted to a mental asylum due to the traffic, honking, smoke and pollution. It is ridiculous. Crimes such as burglary, pickpocketing, chain-snatching are extremely high in Bengaluru and the cops take absolutely no action. Shame on all the politicians of India for declaring Bengaluru as the country's most livable city.
A Chaubey on Mar 05, 2021:
Lake in Bengaluru has caught fire today due to toxic foam. 2 days ago it was the former river (sewer), now it is the lake's turn to catch fire. Have a look here

The politicians of India have declared Bengaluru as the most livable city in the country. I sure hope all the politicians and journalists of India burn eternally in hell.
P Kashyap on Mar 03, 2021:
Vrishabhavathi river that once was a drinking water source for Bangalore is now completely filled with froth, pollutants and filth. The former river is a highly polluted sewer right now


Pollution levels are extremely high in Bangalore. Water pollution is very severe in this city.
Rajiv M on Feb 21, 2021:
More than 12000 people have died in Bengaluru last year due to air pollution. Bengaluru's air pollution levels are toxic.


Don't forget, last year there were lockdowns and also the number of cases reported are far less in number. The actual numbers could be a lot higher than 12000.

In Bengaluru and throughout India, people are crazy about owning vehicles. People showoff their social status by riding their own vehicles. This appalling trend is observed throughout India.
Bhuvan on Jan 31, 2021:
Why is owning/driving a vehicle considered as high social status in India? This is among the highest levels of hypocrisy observed throughout India. People whine about insane traffic, but no one is bothered about the hypocrisy and narrow-mindedness. Throughout India there are insane levels of air pollution along with awful honking. India has the worst drivers and bikers in the entire world. I have been ridiculed and called inferior, immature, coward, miser by plenty of people in India for never owning a vehicle. I traveled anywhere inside the city in cycle/bus/auto/taxis. I have been mocked and insulted by almost all the people I have met.
It is no surprise that all Indian cities and towns are hellholes with horrible traffic and pollution.
Shame on Indians.
Narendra Gupta on Jan 23, 2021:
I am suffering from Asthma in Bengaluru. I had inhaled the dust and pollen during my stay in Bengaluru. The dry weather is making the sneezing worse. My wife had also suffered from Asthma in Bengaluru and she died in sleep. She could not breathe while sleeping. My children are also on the verge of contracting Asthma. Their sneezing is not going away at all even after medication. They are having bleeding nasal sinuses.
Bengaluru is a horrible place and it has completely ruined me and my family.
Balasubramanium K on Jan 20, 2021:
I am staying at HSR Layout in Bengaluru. Many people are burning trash and the noxious smoke is harming me and my family. The drainage water is overflowing daily onto the roads. Me and my family are suffering from Asthma and breathing problems. The dust is unbearable near our area. My eyes can't bear the noxious smoke of mass garbage burning and the dust floating around all over our locality. This is happening frequently every day.
Rajeshwar on Jan 20, 2021:
The Indian Media is total Garbage. Bangalore is dangerously polluted and the Indian Media never reports the facts. Places such as Ulsoor, Electronic City suburbs, Kengeri, Kolifarm Gate, Neelasandra, Madiwala, Bommanahalli, etc. are filled with heaps and piles of garbage. Suburb areas of Bangalore are waste dumping grounds. Trash is burnt openly in many places.
I am from Chandigarh and Bangalore is definitely a Garbage City.
Gulati on Jan 13, 2021:
After reading all the below comments, two things are for sure, most people in Bangalore people have zero civic sense, zero discipline. Having stayed here, I say that pollution is extremely severe in Bangalore.
Umesh on Jan 08, 2021:
Bangalore is among the worst polluted places in the world. This is correctly mentioned by other people. Bangalore is called - "Asthma capital of India", "Suicide capital of India".

Bangalore is also the capital of Hindutva terror in South India. Karnataka government is run by Hindutva terrorists. I am speaking the truth. The VHP considers all the Muslims and Christians as evil enemies of India. The ideology of the RSS is

"In India, Hindus are the owners, Parsis and Jews are guests, Muslims and Christians are dacoits."

This ideology is practiced and followed by millions of people in Bangalore including the software employees, managers, entrepreneurs and Central Government employees.
These same Hindutva terror supporters want to permanently settle and ask for onsite in Muslim and Christian countries. Bangalore has millions of people that support Hindutva terror.
In Bangalore, the Karnataka government and all the software companies show virulent hatred towards Muslims and Christians.
According to them, the ethnic cleansing of Muslims and Christians from Bangalore will reduce all the pollution levels in Bangalore. Air pollution, water pollution, noise pollution and sanitation issues will be solved.
I have a question - Why are foreign countries welcoming these millions of Hindutva terror supporters from Bangalore?
Guruprasad on Oct 18, 2020:
Bangalore is horribly filled with pollution in all points - Air pollution, water pollution, noise pollution, dust pollution. Air is completely filled with dust. Dust gets accumulated everywhere. The water quality in Bangalore is dangerous and miserable. The few remaining lakes have absolutely no aquatic life. They are used for dumping human waste.
Bangalore right now has the highest number of Covid-19 positive cases in India, next only to Pune. Bangalore is more worst affected than the worst 3rd world countries.
All Bangalore software companies have cheating managers and entrepreneurs. The managers in all the Bangalore software companies openly discuss politics and instigate the employees. Religious discrimination, racism, bigotry, backstabbing, deceit, bullying, betrayal are extremely high in all the software companies of Bangalore.
Murder, Gangrape and Extortion happen very frequently at night in the streets of Bangalore. Vast majority of the crime in Bangalore not reported.
My sister was raped multiple times at night in the streets of Bangalore by drunk men. She was walking alone.
The people are scared of the police, law and order. Bangalore is filled with injustice in all aspects.
As plenty of people have correctly mentioned, I also fully agree that Bangalore is definitely the Suicide Capital of India.
Pradeep Chaurasia on Oct 08, 2020:
I am from Uttar Pradesh and I will say with certainty that Bengaluru is the worst place to live in South India. Bengaluru is extremely polluted in every aspect. Most people in Bengaluru are good in cheating others.
But I will say that Bengaluru is cleaner and safer than any city in North India.
Sorry for the comparison, but South India is a lot cleaner, more safer, less polluted and more developed than any place in North India and Central India.
Devarajan on Sep 19, 2020:
I am from Singapore of Indian origin. Bangalore should follow Singapore as an example of reducing pollution, maintaining cleanliness of high standards. Singapore is also densely populated with millions of people. But Singapore is among the cleanest, developed and safest megacities in the world. Singapore's infrastructure is far more advanced than Bangalore.
I hope Bangalore also learns from Singapore soon.
Subramanian Swamy on Sep 08, 2020:
Bangalore is certainly the Suicide Capital of India. There are millions of RSS and Sanghi followers and masterminds living in Bangalore. Their migration to Bangalore is only increasing each day. These RSS masterminds in Bangalore spew and instigate hatred towards minority religions.
Bangalore has enormous amount of crime. Most of the crime goes unreported. The Indian media is Garbage and a puppet of the RSS. Chain-snatching, extortion, pickpocketing and molestation are very common in the streets of Bangalore.
Bangalore is also extremely polluted in all terms. Air pollution here is unbearable due to dust, smoke, pollen, smog, etc. All water bodies are ridiculously polluted. Waste materials are dumped to lakes and they're also encroached.
Noise pollution is extremely high due to vehicles, honking and construction activities.
Gyanendra on Aug 29, 2020:
India is indeed a peaceful and tolerant country. This is rightly mentioned by @Rajesh in the Quality of Life page. Same applies to Bangalore too. But plenty of writers affiliated to political groups are spreading nonsense in social media sites such as YouTube, Twitter, Quora and Facebook. Contrary to their writings, India tolerates all religions equally. People of all religions in India enjoy full rights, liberties and freedom.

One more thing is Indian Media over-sensationalizes news stories. Silly stories are pointless broadcast for several weeks and months. Factual news reporting is very rare in India.

And regarding the high pollution levels in Bangalore, yes, necessary steps need to be taken now to curb the pollution. People should take the initiative in reducing pollution in Bangalore.
Balaji Viswanathan on Aug 27, 2020:
Bangalore is rightly called the "Suicide Capital of India".
There are plenty of sources online that confirm this fact. Bangalore has extremely dangerous levels of dust, pollution and traffic. Education is extremely expensive. People especially the religious minorities in Bangalore suffer abuse, persecution, racism and are bullied and undergo mental depression. There is extreme amount of racism in all the software companies and the Central Government institutions in Bangalore.
Pickpocketing, burglary, armed robbery, rape, extortion and molestation are very common here in Bangalore.
I have lived here and I know the facts.
Gagan on Aug 11, 2020:
The water in Bangalore is not safe for consumption. Bangalore has very high pollution levels concerning air, water, dust and noise. The traffic is also incredibly high and insane in most places within the city. The roads have a sea of vehicles, and you will be stuck for hours in this very slow moving, stagnant traffic.
Karnataka government wants to build more and more flyover, underpasses, metro rails, suburban rails in Bangalore. But the people or the government are not bothered about reducing the use of motor vehicles.
The analogy here is to increase the waist size of trousers to curb obesity, instead of stopping belly growth!
Startups are a fashion word in this city. No startup looks into innovative solutions to tackle the problems faced by this city. Bangalore startups simply copy the ideas of Western countries. Innovation never happens in Bangalore.
Bhagirathi on Aug 08, 2020:
Bangalore has earned the nicknames 'Asthma Capital of India' and 'Suicide Capital of India' from many reliable sources.
Many people have commented about these topics accurately over here and in other pages.
There only very few lakes left in Bangalore today. Most of these remaining lakes are either encroached by real-estate people or severely polluted. None of them have any aquatic life.
Prakash on Aug 07, 2020:
I am from Kochi (Kerala). I would like the people to read my comments only they are not offended.

First of all, most Malayalees/Keralites have hallucinated opinions about Bangalore. Malayalees consider Bangalore a paradise. But in reality, Bangalore has extremely high crime, horrible pollution levels, worst traffic, highly expensive and most people in Bangalore are very rude, bigoted, cruel and very selfish.
Kerala movies and social media sites are glorifying Bangalore and flattering this town by sugarcoating information.
I have met many Malayalees saying that if they die in Kerala or abroad, they prefer to be cremated or buried only in Bangalore.
Sorry to be blunt, but most Malayalees/Keralites are lunatics. I have stayed in many places of Kerala and these are real facts.
The truth is that Bangalore has extremely high levels of dust circulating everywhere and the air is not at all suitable for breathing. Bangalore is correctly named as the 'Asthma Capital of India'.
Thanks for reading my comments!
Kumar on Aug 07, 2020:
Karnataka only knows to place all investments, infrastructure and major education institutions only in Bangalore.
Bangalore is horribly polluted and it is irreversible. Offering 'Work From Home' for employees of software companies will not reduce pollution or traffic. People will still use their vehicles daily for other purposes.
More and more companies and infrastructure will be placed only in Bangalore by successive Karnataka governments. They are not at all bothered about other places in the state. Bangalore has already become a Dystopia.
We the People of Karnataka have no other option for white-collar jobs and higher education, and have to forcibly migrate to this hellhole and nightmare place called Bangalore.
Vaishali on Jul 18, 2020:
Karnataka government is not at all concerned about the growing Covid-19 cases in the state. They are not willing to spend funds and give free treatment for the infected patients. Instead, the government is constructing a 108 feet tall statue of Kempegowda in the Bangalore Airport. They only waste their money for foolish reasons.

Sorry to be blunt, but successive Karnataka governments have and had mental illness of developing only Bangalore and ignoring all other parts of the state.
As @Naresh said, all infrastructure and multinational corporations are intentionally placed only in Bangalore and not in any other place in Karnataka, by the government.
And now the government further wants to develop only Bangalore and for namesake some village in North Karnataka.
Inspire of all these, Bangalore has become the biggest hub for getting infected by asthma, mental depression, water-borne diseases and obesity. Inspite of all the support of the Karnataka government, Bangalore still has become a hellhole, dystopia and India's Garbage City.
To quote that popular phrase "What goes around comes around".
Naresh on Jul 14, 2020:
By deliberately placing all the infrastructure and MNC companies only in Bengaluru, successive Karnataka governments have made Bengaluru the "Dump" of Karnataka.
Tonight the lockdown will once again be imposed in Bengaluru. Now thousands of Covid-19 infected people from this hellhole Bengaluru will travel today to Mysuru and other parts of Karnataka.
Being from Mysuru, I urge our city/district officials to please demand Covid negative certificates from all Bengaluru passengers. Otherwise Mysuru will be badly affected from thousands of these Covid infected travellers from that hellhole Bengaluru.
B Gowda on Jul 05, 2020:
Thousands of Kannadigas are leaving Bengaluru. We Kannadigas are making the right decision by leaving Bengaluru permanently.


Most Kannadigas form the poorer section of Bengaluru society. But we Kannadigas are glad that we don't have to stay in Bengaluru anymore. Our own Karnataka capital city is well and truly an unlivable hell. We Kannadigas want peace of mind, serenity, tranquility and good quality of life. We are not money-minded people, in general.
Bengaluru is full of pollution, crime, chaos, traffic mess, Covid-19 cases and a total concrete jungle. Education and Healthcare in Bengaluru are ridiculously expensive. Only the super-rich can afford these facilities.
We Kannadigas don't want to stay in a place like Bengaluru. And we don't care even if it's our state capital. I have permanently moved back to my native place Alur in Hassan district.

But all successive Karnataka governments and politicians have been foolish to the core. They have only developed Bengaluru and ignored every other place in the state. Now they want to construct a 108 feet tall statue of Kempegowda at the Bengaluru Airport! And I also don't understand the purpose of constructing an Expressway from Bengaluru to Chennai. All the Karnataka politicians are foolish and waste all their money/funds for nonsensical causes in Bengaluru.
Anuj Mehta on Jul 03, 2020:
I don't understand what is so special about the climate of Bangalore. Why is Bangalore climate so overhyped and boasted by people?

It's as if all living creatures can survive only in Bangalore and nowhere else. Even the trees and plants from all parts of the world will start walking to Bangalore to enjoy its climate.

It certainly looks like the "climate" and "language skills" are a cover-up for the extremely high pollution and crime in Bangalore.
The same climate boasting applies throughout Karnataka including Bangalore, Mysore, Belgaum, Dharwad and Shimoga.
People in Karnataka and throughout India can't tolerate the smell of fishes. But the same Indians won't say anything if they are living in some foreign country! There, they are willing to tolerate absolutely anything.
Indians are certainly living in a delusional world regarding climate, pollution, safety, language, education, economy, infrastructure, technology and software.
Manish Bisht on Jun 18, 2020:
Bengaluru has done the lowest Coronavirus testing among Indian metro cities.
As of 18th June 2020, the Covid-19 positive cases in Indian metro cities are as follows:
Mumbai - 60,228
Delhi - 44,688
Chennai - 34,245
Bengaluru - 827

Source: https://indianexpress.com/article/cities/bangalore/why-bengaluru-covid-count-is-least-among-big-cities-6464136/

Bengaluru's numbers above, are statistically an outlier and a FRAUD. It's ridiculous. It is impossible for an Indian city with greater than 10 million population to attain such low numbers. Compare this to cities like Mumbai, Chennai and Delhi! This is purely due to Bengaluru's very low testing and ignorance of its people.

As far as I know, Coronavirus is found in every nook-and-corner of Bengaluru now. But people are very lazy to get tested. This is rightly and excellently mentioned by '#R Chopra' last week.

Having stayed for sometime in Bengaluru, I can clearly and honestly tell you that Bengaluru is a hellhole. And I found nothing special about the overhyped climate of Bengaluru. You must visit places such as Hassan that have excellent climate, but don't boast and brag like Bengaluru.

News sources and movies must stop sugarcoating and stop spreading misinformation about Bengaluru. They should instead show the real facts about this hellhole. I also thank each and every person for posting their honest comments about Bengaluru over here.
Dheeraj on Jun 17, 2020:
I am from Mysore.
Bangalore is a highly polluted city. There is very high amount of dust throughout Bangalore. All water bodies are severely polluted. There is no piped water supply in Bangalore. Boasting itself as a Megacity, it is probably the only megacity in this world without any water reservoir!! Astonishing!

Water is supplied to Bangalore by water tanker mafia bringing water from faraway Kaveri. And no quality check of water is ever done. There is extreme amount of noise pollution from vehicle horns, air pollution from lakes of vehicles everyday all running on petrol, diesel or even kerosene!

And all the Karnataka politicians (past and present) are foolish, selfish and utterly useless. They have only developed Bangalore and ignored all other places in the state.
Now they want to develop Hubli along with Bangalore!
Even all the Central government (India government) politicians (past and present) have a very low IQ, just like our Karnataka politicians. All these foolish politicians are not bothered about developing Hassan, Chikmagalur, Kodagu, Udupi and Davangere. What is the use of only developing Bangalore and Hubli?
And to make matters even worse, the politicians want to construct an expressway between Bangalore and Chennai! This expressway is not needed at all. This is the result of giving power to very low IQ people.
Karnataka was, is and always will be the worst administered state in India.

And I completely agree with all other people, who've posted their comments here. They are all absolutely true.
R Chopra on Jun 12, 2020:
Disclaimer: Some of my comments are sarcastic. Read through only if you are not offended.

Why does Bangalore have much less Covid cases than Mumbai, Chennai and Delhi?
The answer is simple. The Bangalore climate is awesome. People will live for 500 years due to Bangalore climate. You don't have to travel outside the boundaries of Bangalore. Bangalore climate will protect you from Covid-19.

Here is my honest answer to this question: People in Bangalore don't care to come out of their homes and get tested for Covid-19. Bangaloreans are by-far the laziest people in India. Now they will Work From Home. Even during voting, the turnout in Bangalore is the lowest. Order everything online. Drive alone in cars and honk recklessly.
Don't test for Covid, be ignorant and start boasting to sky-high levels.
"Bangalore has by far the lowest Coronavirus cases among all Indian metro cities".
"Bangalore has much low Coronavirus cases than Karnataka districts- Belgaum, Bidar, Gulbarga, etc.".
"Bangaloreans are the most civilized people in India. People in other Indian places are uncivilized".
Bangaloreans should be proud of their achievements.
Soon entire Indian population will migrate to this tiny "heaven on earth"- Bangalore.
Chandra on Jun 03, 2020:
I am from Chhattisgarh.
Bangalore is a disgrace and a shame to Karnataka. Sugarcoated and Overhyped as a "cosmopolitan city", "great climate" town, Bangalore is a classic example of a village gone horribly wrong.
Hundreds of lakes are encroached, lakes are burning or frothing, garbage being burned openly at many places and people with nil civic sense. Bangalore has done very less coronavirus testing compared to many other Indian cities and towns.
People here only care about money and nothing else. Water quality in Bangalore is terrible and polluted water is supplied at high costs by the water tanker mafia.
Indian government and Karnataka government are filled with people with very low IQ. They want to construct a fast expressway from Bangalore to another highly polluted and worst town Chennai.
Ramesh Mohanty on May 26, 2020:
Mr. Hansen, there are many hospitals in Bangalore for skin treatment. I'm not endorsing anything, but there are hospitals such as Apollo, Radiance, etc. that have dermatologists. I wish you good health and a speedy recovery.
Best Regards.

Now shifting my discussion topic to Bangalore pollution.
I am surprised that even after lockdown and restricted movement of vehicles, the Bangalore Air Quality is in the "Poor" category since many days. I frequently check the Accuweather site and it's very reliable for Live Air Quality information in cities. Also note that it's summer season and not the foggy/smog season right now.
This clearly indicates why Bangalore is called the Asthma capital of India. There is severe amount of dust and pollen existing in Bangalore's air, and this is very risky and life-threatening to all its people. To make things worse, Bangalore is a completely landlocked city. The pollutants cannot be dispersed outside; they keep circulating in the same place forever.
While the online marketing teams have been successful in painting a rosy picture about Bangalore, the truth has to be spoken out. Unfortunately, truth is bitter to hear. Our friend @Suraj Chaudhary had commented in September last year, about the dangers of Asthma and pollution in Bangalore.
Sorry to be blunt, but Bangalore is already an unlivable city. This was correctly predicted by IISc.
Sven Hansen on May 20, 2020:
Hi, I am from Sweden.
I am living in Bangalore now and can't return back due to lockdown.
Can anyone tell me how is Bangalore weather considered "cool"?
I am suffering from severe skin burns due to Bangalore climate.
Can anyone suggest me a good dermatologist in Bangalore?
Dhanush on May 04, 2020:
Bangalore is a polluted and contaminated place. It is among the filthiest places in South India, but slightly better than Chennai and Hyderabad. Bangalore's air quality is miserable.
If you don't have Asthma, come to Bangalore to get infected by Asthma. Bangalore's dry climate and nasty air quality will make sure that Asthma will be your companion throughout your short-span life.
Enjoy the sweet sound of traffic-jammed horns, bathe yourself in the wonderful dust and watch your step for uncovered manholes covered by flood waters. Drink the contaminated Bangalore water to get tapeworms, round worms and diarrhea.
Sing your praises to the awesome Bangalore climate.
This is the Garbage city - Bangalore.
