A new lay-out has come up in bangalore in an unexpected and unprecedented way and is the picture of modern day Bangalore with thousands of flats in a limited stretch of land. In the 1970's I remember seeing this stretch of land nothing more than a wet-land with some cultivations and the BTS buses of these times would stop at this place as it formed the end of a stage and the conductor was busy issuing tickets to some remaining passengers in an otherwise highly over-crowded bus.
I think these flats took shape some where in year 2000 and in a sudden explosion many flats in multi-storey format and very closely knit began to appear in quick succession. The growth of the Indian middle class can be seen through these flats ;especially with the large number of cars parked at these flat basements.
