The saturation of global brands in this office park in Bangalore is pretty impressive. I’m sitting in a perfectly modern office building near other perfectly modern buildings housing Fidelity, Goldman Sachs, IBM, Target, Microsoft, Dell …. A golf course runs down the length of the development and a steady state of construction is an indication that more brands are coming.
Bangalore is the third largest city in the country, has a new airport under construction, and is quite pretty in a tropical way, with the same wonderful coal smoke smell I remember from 1991.
But, in truth, I am here to sit in conference rooms and talk to people. Here’s my view today.
