I think I might have been a little over-critical of Bangalore because of a lot of other reasons. Realised that when I met with Mukhi and his wife and saw how optimistic they were about having moved here. Also realised how poorly informed about Bangalore I am. While this does not change my relative rating of the city as being worse than both Mumbai and Delhi, perhaps I will be less harsh on it. No promises, though.
Incidentally, I didn't actually go into the cafe, in case you're wondering.
