Bangalore is an ideal place to learn how the technological and business revolution is transforming traditional Indian society into a fastpaced hybrid of EastWest life. Its location in Indias Silicon Valley makes it an excellent spot for networking and developing contacts with companies involved in software and business outsourcing.
