On the day of my departure, I was taken to this new MALL in the heart of Bangalore. Boy was I nauseated. The pretense, the announcers with their fake american (call centre accents or call girl accents as I would name them ), shops with improrted goods at exorbitant prices, all in all, mimicry beyond nausea.

Unique Suggestions: Like all the great travel writers had written, this is yet another manifestation of what Indians think of Western way of living: along with McDonalds, KFC.
No wonder 30 year old IT people are dying of heart attacks!

Review Helpfulness: 2.5 out of 5 stars
