India is a country with a vast culture. Language and festivals fall in the center. On one hand where it is fascinating to be exposed to new cultures every time you travel to a new place, it is also difficult to adapt to it when you have to live there for work or studies. Bangalore has become a hub for students and people who move out for work.
North Indians in Bangalore have a lot of challenges to deal with apart from finding a place to live comfortably and manage some time for themselves.
Local people of Bangalore kind of dislike the idea of northies migrating to South as they feel they are making the city crowded and expensive for no good reason.They think North Indians are responsible for all the traffic on roads (which they are) so they are generally not very inclined to help them. However, hospitality is integral to India and therefore people are mostly kind.
Language in India changes every 5 km.Moving to a completely different region can give one cultural shock. Kannadigas prefer to talk to each other and others in Kannada, so dealing with the people specially the taxi drivers or food vendors can be a bit difficult.A little homework on the language might be of some help.
North Indians landing in Bangalore have a hard time adjusting their taste buds. Dosa becomes staple, as they say – When in Rome do as the Romans. Bangalore, however, serves good North Indian food as well. The roadsides of Jayanagar and Koramangla are heaven for Chaat, Tikki and Puchka.
Koramangla is full of cafes and restaurants which mostly serve continental food and you can find more of northern taste, in terms of food and music both. There are events like “bollywood night” and “bollywood live music shows” which are good for dates or a casual outing. Food outlets like Kota Kachori, Puraani Dilli, Bhatinda Dine, Punjabi Dhaba and all will satisfy your cravings of North Indian food.They have great love for their food and language, so no compromise happening there. However,
South Indian food taste the best in Bangalore. Dosas taste authentic and you start to either love it or adjust with it. Also, people in South Indian might not understand your love for chapati and hence you might have to make some adjustments there as well.They don’t celebrate most of the festivals that are celebrated widely in the north for eg Holi, Diwali, Raksha Bandhan, etc. These are big festivals that are celebrated together with family in North India while people in South India work on those days as well. There’s no off for any of the festivals for any reason.
Co-living is a preferable option to go with when you move to Bangalore. Co-living helps build a society of different kinds of people in an alien city. These people choose to live with other people from same or different demographies and have all the other responsibilities managed like food, laundry and even entertainment.
