Blocks are especially inescapable of notice in Bangalore the most cosmopolitan of cities. Inescapable because, you wouldn't stay for more than a week in Bengaluru and still not pass through Jayanagar, once one of the most beautiful of its suburbs.
Jayanagar consists of 10 blocks( 1 through 9 + 4th T) and has had a composite of both a laid back old worldly charm and flashes of modernity what with the first ever mall of Bangalore (Shopping complex), the first ever drive-in-theater, 100% good roads, lesser crime rates, and a lot of park-spaces for old people and young love birds to spend time undisturbed in a bindas way.
Often looked upon as a model of urban planning by other city governments, the whole of Jayanagar was like one huge promenade till 1990 and now it is like a younger sister of Karol Bagh, Delhi.
In 2012 on a rare day, as you step out of your gate, if you are not hit and hurt by a passing automobile, it's your lucky day and you will win a jackpot if you are into lottery playing.
