The buoyant, neglected city...

I was really glad to see that Coimbatore is the topic of the cover story in the latest issue of Frontline. The city which, according to me, is one of the most neglected ones, just needs some publicity to go the place it really deserves. Even after making it to the top-6/7 cities in umpteen issues of magazines analysing the business scene, it just doesn't have the magnetism that some of the other cities have.

An amazing climate, cleanliness, education levels and a cosmo outlook notwithstanding, making it to the cover story of the magazines is one thing, but reality is another. It would be interesting to see the developments, particularly with the city-wise competitions for attracting business. Add to that the fact that Coimbatore is in TN, things only get interesting! :)

Imagine like a tech city in Nilgiris Valley! Any place which is has a great weather throughout and is in a scenic place is sure to be a magnet for techies all around.. Nilgiris Valley, like Silicon Valley would be so damn cool :-) !!
