Essence Of Bangalore

Nothing captures the essence of Bangalore like this massive Infosys building, in South Bangalore, looking as if a giant spaceship just crashed like Dorothy’s house right on top of what was once a rural village. Or like it violently pushed its way up from an underground city. It certainly is massive; the real scale of it is hard to capture in a 35mm frame. The raw and real juxtaposition of this behemoth futuristic structure in the background (it’s further away than it appears) against the village shacks and shops in the foreground provides a jarring illustration of the impact that the swift IT boom combined with a real lack of municipal planning has had on Bangalore.

Where Phil Works

This is the towering Adobe office on Bannerghatta Road in Bangalore where I work. It may look large, but it is utterly dwarfed by the buildings all over B’lore belonging to such behemoths as Accenture (3 bigger-than-airport facilities on Bannerghatta alone!), Accentis, Conexant, Enventure, Infineon, InfoSys, and so on. I guess only 10 years ago this place was all gardens and goats, and BAM, technology happened.

Anyway, I am proud to be working for a company whose name is an actual WORD.

Infineon? What the hell does that even mean?
