Over the last few decades, India has modernized and developed on an extraordinary level. In many ways, Bangalore is the embodiment of such change – the population has more than tripled from 1.6 million people to over 5.7 million between 1971 and 2001. As an industrial and technological city of over 5 million people located in India’s southern region, Bangalore has often been called the “Silicon Valley of India.” The city hosts the preeminent Indian defense contractor, Hindustan Aeronautics Limited, and two major Indian IT companies, InfoSys and Wipro. The city also is the home of the Indian Space Research Organization.
