Chayote, a vegetable. Impossible to see how the aubergine comes in, even if you concede that perhaps the vegetable was first introduced in Bangalore as an exotic item.

Usage

"Terrific aviyal, I must say. Only thing I missed was Bangalore kattarikka in it."

The word Bangalore might evoke images of a bustling cosmopolitan Indian city bursting at the seams, road side romeos walking around Brigades, pub kulcher, UB city, Dingos dancing at Catholic Club or little bespectacled mugpots from St. Joseph's engaging in low-grade rowdy behavior involving poly mangos.

When you think Bangalore, you might also think technology hub, outsourcing or kaffeeklatsch at Kosh's.

What you will not think however, is..... torpedos! Yes, around 1913, Captain McClintock of the British army while serving in Bangalore, invented an explosive device used for clearing booby traps and light obstacles such as barricades and barbed wire. This device was called the Bangalore Torpedo.

Bangalore Torpedoes were widely used in both World Wars, most famously during the D Day landings to clear obstacles from the beaches as seen in the films Saving Private Ryan and the Longest Day.

Usage

Bangalore Porki1: How was last night macha? did you put with that bombshell from Mounts with big knockers?
Bangalore Porki2: Ofcourse macha. I put for 3 hours straight. The sex was so explosive, she called me the Bangalore Torpedo!

A Karnataka institution and impossible to miss amongst the myriad street stalls, Iyengar's bakery was so named, some versions go, to assure its vegetarian patrons that no eggs were used in the baking process.

True or not, these bakeries are now ubiquitous across the South Indian landscape and evoke a kinder gentler time when a Dilkush was both literally and metaphorically achievable for a few precious minutes at Iyengar's

Usage

He: Macha, let's stop at the Iyengar's bakery. My mom asked me to pick up some vegetable puffs for tiffin
Me: Ok, let's also drink some bisi badam milk

Bangalore comes from Benda Kaalu Uru (The Town of Boiled Beans). Apparently this rather humble name was bequeathed to the city by King Vira Ballala. Once while lost in the area, he was offered boiled beans by an old woman, and it was out of gratitude that he named the area after this simple offering.

Third most populous city in India. Once verdant and sleepy. Now Pub Kulcher abounds, traffic will make you mental, and the new ruling class - the ITocracy, hops between bars and shopping malls in search of the next thrill. Older folk love looking into the distance listlessly as they yearn for an idyllic past where yenjoyment involved going to Rex for a movie, eating Indian-Chinese at Chung Wah and ending the evening with hot chocolate fudge at Corner House.

That said, denizens are still pretty laid back and follow an adjust madi approach to life. Here you can be rest assured that ladies are nice, gents are full of spice...

Usage

Sofa Sadhu: Bangalore used to be such an innocent city. Now its gone to the dogs! The city's infrastructure can't keep up.
Note - everyone makes this observation and they say it as if it is an original insight.
