Welcome to Bangalore, India’s capital of coat hangers

YOU MIGHT THINK (mistakenly) that Bangalore is the world capital of pubs. Oh no, it is the world capital of coat hangers.

I know this because someone has just moved into the apartment here in Bengaluru and she was suffering a drastic shortage of coat hangers. So she’s been out today, and came back so happy at finding coat hangers that she went out and bought another clutch.

At Rs98 for eight, this seems sort of a reasonable price. She bought pink ones and blue ones and nicked most of mine too. Unfortunately, I haven’t yet unpacked and so I will have to either demand some back, or go down and buy some pink ones for myself.  Foolishly, I forgot to pack any trousers before I left Blighty, so I’ve had to go buy a couple of pair today. And they’ll need coat hangers, won’t they?

Semiconductor guys like their beer

I’VE BEEN SENT to a page called “Chips and Beer”, which is here.  The basic premise seems to be that readers and journalists that work on  Electronics Weekly, a magazine, like to be able to know which are the best bars to go to all over the world.

There’s a yawning gap in the Google Map with India looking like there’s no favourite pubs at all. This, of course, is rubbish, sheer bakvas. The world+dog he know that Bangalore is the “pub capital of India”.

If only that were true.
