‘OH, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet.’ The chorus of Rudyard Kipling’s famous Ballad of East and West can aptly be applied to Bangalore – a city of layers – a twin city with the European Cantonment to the East and the Indian Pettah to the West and Cubbon Park in between planned as a visual barrier to separate the two! Join us to find out if the two ever met and along the way experience a bit of Cantonment life along with a few surprises thrown in. EastWest.jpg
