When the Indian government decided to ban 500 (£6/$7) and 1,000 (£12/$15) rupee notes as part of their anti-corruption drive, the move not only shocked India, but also expats living there as well.

In their place are new 500 and 2,000 rupee notes, which have new security features and the government says a new 1,000 rupee note, the most popular note in the country, will be redesigned and reintroduced at some point in the future.   more ...

While Indian food has been around in England since the early 1800s, it was only after control over the subcontinent passed from the East India Company to the Crown, and more and more Britons came to make their fortunes in India, that Indian cuisine came to be at the forefront of the British culinary experience. With the intermarriage between Britons and Indians, a new form of cooking called Anglo-Indian cuisine was created, and this cuisine married the very best that Indian and British food had to offer.   more ...

Living in India can be confusing for expats, and can take some getting used to. Some expats arrive in India with visions of living in an exotic Asian country, only to find themselves in urban, developed surroundings, although certain infrastructural problems do exist. At the same time, there’s the incongruence of living in a country that is to a considerable extent modern and driven by technology and global ideas, and yet retains many local, traditional, and often conservative ideas and practices.   more ...

Things To Consider As An Expat Moving To Bangalore

Posted on Tuesday April 14, 2015 (19:14:07)
Bangalore (now officially changed to Bengaluru, but still popularly known by its old name) is one of India’s main metropolitan cities, among its most modern, developed, and urban areas. Like most of India, Bangalore is a place of great contradictions – dazzling affluence and stark poverty, modern conveniences next to infrastructure that is often outdated and outstripped by demand, and a welcoming, cosmopolitan place that sometimes is tainted by parochialism and prejudice. Bangalore has a large community of expats from all over the world, and is a relatively easy city to settle into, but it’s always helpful to know what to expect, and to consider whether and how you want to make the move.   more ...

Posted on Wednesday July 16, 2014 (23:14:23)
Experiencing a culture shock is an inevitable part of moving to India, especially if you are traveling to the country for the first time. Bangalore, the “Silicon Valley of India” is a dynamic city with deep religious roots. In spite of being young, tech-driven, and urban the culture in Bangalore is rather different from that in the average Western country, and therefore most expats from the US and the UK need some time to adjust.

Of course, the best way of dealing with a culture shock is to learn as much as you can about Bangalore and its people. Here is some advice for new expats to deal with culture shock in Bangalore.   more ...
