Oh, East is East, and West is West, and never the twain shall meet,
The chorus of Rudyard Kipling’s famous The 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, serving as a barrier between the two!
Join us to find out if the two ever met and, along the way, experience a bit of Cantonment life along with some surprises thrown in.
