For many, Bengaluru is a city of dreams, drawing people from across the country who are in search of better jobs and a better life. But what’s the reality of a worker in this city? Is Bengaluru really a good place to work in? Who is it good for? What does good even look like? Easy and safe commutes? Affordable housing? Progressive urban employment schemes? We search for answers through conversations with political activists, senior IAS officers, the head of an ecological restoration foundation and the youth of this city. We also try to look into the future to find out what the city’s working population will have to contend with then.
