Culture of Bangalore

Bangalore is not confined to being an IT City or the Pub City of the nation. But with more than 62% migrants in the city, it has flourished into a culturally diverse capital as well. 

As the IT, Education & Business sector expanded with the liberalization, Bangalore has transformed into a potpourri of religion & heritage.

Since 1981, the female to male sex-ratio has remained to be stagnant at 908 for every 1000 men in Bangalore. If compared to the urban ratios, Udipi, Dakshina Kannada & Chikamaglur (which are slightly smaller cities). The gender ratio here is more than thousand females for every thousand men.

The Pub-Culture has made the Bangalore Nights more peppy and alive. In spite of the fact that Bangalore is a multi-cuisine State, local customs here are attuned with core Indian culture and dishes. 

When talking about eating styles, alike all Indians, Bangalore-ians prefer eating with their hands rather picking up that shimmery cutlery of the west and digging their forks into their food.

Many people in Bangalore speak Kannada and the second most-spoken language in the garden it is English. Because of the presence of so many cultures at one place, languages like Tamil, Telegu and Hindi have also made their way inside Bangalore.
