Tonight we went into the buzzing centre of Bangalore. The trip in the taxi was interesting too – we are still adjusting to the Indian roads:
We went for a South Indian veggie meal which was delicious and experience the obligatory power cut!
Pubs are getting bigger in India and so we went to a pub that sells ONLY beer and plays slightly aged rock music and shows cricket. So I tried to drink beer – but didn’t do very well – Stephen and Adam had to finish mine for me!
We are back now and preparing for our meetings tomorrow. We are meeting with Gaurav Vaz who is Co-owner of Media VerVe and who won the Indian equivalent of my award (we met up with him tonight in fact so the ice is well and truly broken). Then he will take us over to the Landmark store which is one of the few stores that sells cds and books in India. Apparently many of the pure record shops have shut down.
Then we are off to meet Radio Indigo who are India’s only international hit station.
There are more meetings – but that will do for now. Any questions from colleagues in Birmingham that I should pose tomorrow?
Let me know.
