Bangalore is hot, but crumbling

HERE IN BANGALORE, the temperature is much nicer than in the UK. But here in Bangalore, more and more fine buildings and trees are going to be replaced by concrete blocks. I’d say that if this continues, the birds, the bees and butterflies will all flit in a couple of years. Which would be a great shame for Indiranagar. I’ve been so busy on The News that I’m falling behind on this bog a bit. But there is a great piece in The Economist about how Bloomberg, AFP, AP and Reuters may swallow up all the little newspapers – which take their feeds – and we’ll end up with the Daily Bland. That isn’t going to happen on The News, as long as my vital signs keep ticking.
