Garden-city, Silicon Valley of India, Bangalore, Bengaluru one knows it by many names. From a simple mud fort built by Kempe Gowda, Bengaluru has grown to become a bustling cosmopolitan hub. Through painstaking research and by sourcing rare photographs Maya Jayapal has left no stone unturned to revisit history, myths, and memories. As one turns the pages one is awed by the grandeur of the palaces,the beauty of its parks, the vivid hues of its markets and much more. Quaint history blends with insightful observations as the author explores the city s monuments, those that have survived the test of time, and introduces us to its people, the diverse communities that breathe life into the city. It is not merely a nostalgic account of times past but also about what lies ahead. Bangalore: Roots and Beyond explores the allure that the city possesses for old-timers and new migrants alike, and discusses its transition into the 21st century.
