I was in Bangalore on wednesday for BangaloreIT.in event, and it took 4 hours to go and come back due to traffic and demonstrations. At the evening, it took more than an hour and a half in the security queue at the airport! See pictures below.
It is amazing how the city has continuously failed to react (forget planning) to the infrastructure needs to support growth! I think its at a tipping point of frustrating people out of the city. As one of the people at the airport said “Bangalore is now in Auto F*** Mode”.
