    We didn't face riots terrorist attacks floods and bomb blasts like Mumbai; women were safer than in Delhi; weather was pleasant compared to Chennai; we focused on long-term success over short-term adrenaline (look at where Bangalore is going now) and add to that

    yummy food (ok, Delhi has this one too)

    Read the Vir Sanghvi piece. It's a good article - even if you don't believe in the subject.
