From the Garden City of then to the IT City of now, Bangalore has assumed several varied identities over the last few decades. Just last year, it was ranked as the 'world's most dynamic city' above contenders like London and Shanghai. Before that, it was given the title of 'India's most livable city’.

Indeed, millennials have pushed the boundaries of housing in Bangalore today. Gone are the days when a bachelor had to either stay in a cramped hostel or PG or rent an unfurnished flat and invest everything he/she had in setting it up. Today, right from cozy studios to spacious 5BHKs, shared fully furnished apartments in the city are becoming melting pots of culture as youngsters from everywhere turn them into their homes.

As young bachelors and working professionals from all over the country (and the world) flock here every day, people practising different professions and speaking different tongues will still live together as roommates to split the rent of an apartment in Koramangala, or at least enjoy a drink with each other at Watson's in JP Nagar.

The culinary scene here is as cosmopolitan as the city itself. Right from the humble but insanely popular masala dosa at Taaza Thindi in Jayanagar to high- end sushi at Shiro on Lavelle Road, Bangalore has you covered. And even as newer restaurants mushroom across the city, and taller apartments are built on every street-corner, Bangaloreans love their parks and lakes above all else! Go for an evening walk at Lalbagh or a Sunday morning run at Cubbon Park, and you’ll know why.

Bangalore has something for everyone. For every Phoenix Marketcity, there is a quaint shopping street in Malleswaram. For every cost-effective bus or metro ticket, there is a glitzy Uber XL or OLA Lux. And for every traffic-clogged lane in Marathahalli, there is a breezy, tree-lined avenue deep inside JP Nagar.

Whether it is because of the year-around pleasant weather or the high-paying jobs in the tech parks, the constantly-growing population of the city (currently just above ten million) is proof that the city only becomes more attractive to the country’s youth every year. As long as you’re here, be a responsible citizen, keep your city clean, and the people of Bangalore will always welcome you with open arms!
