Bangalore has recently earned the place of the most visited city in India for business and why not? The city has a number of posh tech parks, hosting IT giants from all over the world. Bangalore might be called the ‘Silicon Valley of India’, but it is very different from its namesake, San Francisco. As I have learned, Bangalore has its own charm and has plenty to offer any traveler. If this is your first time to Bangalore, on a business trip, here are a few things you need to know before you get there.
 
Travel Safe And Beat The Madness
Once you land in the Kempegowda International Airport, you should have no problems finding transport. There are a host of airport taxis and Volvo buses to the city. But the safest option is to book yourself an Uber or an Ola cab. They’re much cheaper than the Airport Taxis and safer than most transport options. In fact, these apps are a safe bet whenever and wherever you want to travel. Getting around Bangalore can be hectic task, especially during rush hour. You could be stuck in traffic for hours, so make sure you ask your hotel’s concierge when’s the best time to leave.  Plus, you could always carry a good book or a pair of earphones to keep yourself occupied. Also, stay clear of autorickshaws! Most drivers are opportunistic and can charge exorbitant amounts of money for short distances. If you do want to try them, however, make sure you ask the driver for the price in advance. You could also take a ride in the city’s metro to get a feel for life here. If you’re planning to travel long distances, rent a car from popular companies, including Zoomcar or Myles.
Find Your Home Away from Home
When it comes to choosing accommodation, it’s best to choose a quality establishment close to your workplace. Most business hotels are located miles away from the airport, so don’t look for accommodation here. Localities like Whitefield, Domlur, Marathahalli, CV Raman Nagar, Sarjapur Road, Hebbal, and Electronic City have the biggest IT Parks in the city and therefore the most number of business hotels. You’ll find everything from posh five-star establishments to more budget-friendly accommodations. Most of the corporates traveling frequently for the business purpose prefer budget accommodation. Treebo Business Hotels in Bangalore are the best budget accommodation option for corporates offering quality services, branded amenities with efficient service.
Shop Smart
If you want to pick up a few souvenirs for your loved ones back home, head to one of Bangalore’s many commercial districts and budget-friendly local markets. If you’re planning to visit a local market, make sure you go along a friend from the city. Most shopkeepers will take advantage of tourists, so having a local friend to guide you and bargain for you is a huge advantage. Also, make sure you check the goods for damage before you buy them. This is because, usually, you won’t be able to return or exchange them. If you don’t have any local friends though, I’d suggest that you stick to shopping at malls.

A Culture Hot Pot
Agood population of people in Bangalore aren’t natives of the city, giving it a diverse range of cultures and languages. Most people here are either bilingual or multilingual. So, if you don’t speak Kannada, don’t worry. You could easily get away with English, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu or Malayalam. The people here are also pretty friendly and welcoming. Make a few friends here and you will truly experience the city. 

Find the Best Grub and Ale
Bangalore is known for its delicious food. It doesn’t matter what you’re in the mood for, Bangalore has it all. Right from Middle-Eastern, Korean, Japanese, European, Mexican, Chinese to Tibetan. A word of caution, if you have a weak tummy, do not try the street food. Also, don’t drink the tap water here. Every hotel and restaurant sell bottled mineral water, just ask and you shall receive. If you don’t care to venture out, you could always have a meal at your hotel. Places like Treebo provide food within the premises. If you do have a few treats that you can’t live without, bring them along, as not many convenience stores may stock them. Bangalore has a number of pubs around the city, but nightlife here is cut short, with a curfew of 11:30 p.m. That shouldn’t stop you from having a great time however. If you love ales, sample a few craft beers from the city’s numerous microbreweries and bars. A few places to try are Toit, the Big Brewsky, Windmills Craftwork, the Biere Club, and the Arbor Brewing Company.
Discover the City
Bangalore is known for its beautiful parks, make sure you visit the Lalbagh Botanical Gardens and Cubbon Park. The city is culturally rich and boasts a number of contemporary art museums and performance theatres. If you’re lucky, catch a play at Ranga Shankara in JP Nagar or Jagriti in Whitefield. You could also visit the Indian Cartoon Gallery at the Indian Institute of Cartoonists for a lesson in Indian cartoons. Also, visit the National Gallery of Modern Art, Bangalore Palace, Bannerghatta National Park, and UB City.
If you have more time, visit Bangalore’s neighbouring cities, including Mysore, Shravanabelagola, Halebidu, Belur and Coorg. These cities are steeped in history and are wonderful places for both Indian and foreign tourists.
Now that you have an idea of what the city’s like, plan ahead. The first time might seem intimidating, but you’ll  love the warmth and culture of Bangalore. If you fall in love with the city like many others before you, come back and visit again.

The summer break has begun and the days of sleeping until late every morning and unlimited game time are here. Every kid waits for this time of the year, as he is least expected to study and is allowed to have unlimited fun time. However, if you don’t plan properly for your childs' routine during the summer break, it can cause major effects on both, health and education. From scheduling a study plan to finish the holiday homework, to organising a food schedule to provide a shield against the summer heat, you should do it all in good time. If you are still confused about how to go approach it, here are some fantastic tips that will help you plan your childs' routine during the summer break and not let it go haywire. Take a look!


Make a Diet Plan
One of the most important things to do especially during the holidays is to make a diet plan for your child. During the summer break, the erratic sleeping and waking schedule warrants a proper diet. It is the best time to introduce health juices using a cold press juicer and nutritious food items in their routines. The summer break is the right time to feed your child with healthy alternatives as when in school you can never be sure of what food habits they follow. 

Mark the Dates
If you already have a lot of plans for the summer break, make sure to mark the dates on a calendar. This will ensure, you know exactly what is happening when and at what time, so that you miss no study schedules or day outs that are planned for fun and learning. It is advisable that even if you know the schedules and the dates for trips, sporting activities, picnics, or any other activity, keeping an actual manual schedule will ensure you do not club too many things together that could be stressful for the child. 

Have a Plan
If you are planning to make this summer break a fruitful one for your child, ensure that you have everything pre-planned and organised as per the planned activities. When you are planning an activity, involve your child to take ideas about events and activities he is interested in and would like to pursue. Whether you are planning to enrol your child in a hobby class or in a specialised activity, do take his interest into account to make it a learning and enjoyable task. 

Make a Chart
Summer break can be really a difficult time academically and making your child study during this time is practically impossible, especially when all they want to really do is laze around, watch television, play games, and go on outings. Making a chart with daily expectations will ensure that both you and your child know what to expect from the day, while giving him sufficient time to take breaks from planned activities and do whatever he wants to experiment with.

Have some Fun
As much as your child wants to have fun during the summer break, he will also want to spend quality time with you. The hectic school days and homework leave him with little or no time to plan anything with you. So during the holidays, plan activities that will involve you to enjoy this gifted time to make your child feel connected with you, make him secure and confident about your relationship and above all show him how much fun you can be too. 

While these are only a few, there are many other awesome ways through which you can easily make summer breaks a perfect blend of entertainment and education.

As a woman working in a professional, business environment, you should know this; before you really speak anything, it’s your appearance and the way you carry yourself that makes a mark on the other person. No matter if it’s your own co-workers, your bosses or your client; how you present yourself reflects on your work ethic, professionalism, and capability. No one wants to work with a person who can’t take 15 minutes to dress properly. 
  
However, you don’t want to look overwhelming and overdressed. Dressing up for work can be really tricky; there’s a very fine line between dressing smartly and taking it to an unrequited level. You want to keep it minimalist and simple yet elegant and powerful. And if you’re a person who has to deal with clients and people one-on-one, you need to look your best as you are the one representing your firm.
Also, keeping in mind that you are going to be working some 10-odd hours, you need to dress up in clothes that you can be comfortable in all throughout the day. Clothes that should in no way hinder your working capability or affect your caliber. 

Pant-suits, pencil skirts and blouses, trousers and shirts and formal dresses are a popular bet among women when it comes to dressing for a business meeting. However, nothing speaks power and authority than a pair of well-fitted trousers, a crisply starched shirt, and a complimenting jacket. 

A Power-Packed Trio
Yes, a pair of well-fitted trousers, a crisply starched shirt, and a jacket is the best possible attire than speaks power and lets people know who’s in charge. It is super comfortable and available in materials that let your skin breathe the most. This is one look that does not even take 5 minutes to throw around and will bask in the most compliments for you. Slip on a pair of nice pumps, put on a string of pearls, get minimal makeup, put your hair in a bun or a ponytail and that’s it! Get an oversized bag, a statement watch and giant pair of sunglasses to complete the look. 

Pants
Pants and trousers can be tailored to suit your preference. They are already available in so many different styles that you are spoilt for choice. You have the boot-legged pants, wide-legged trousers, well-fitted pants and even flared pants. Best colours to stock up on are dark grey, steel grey, black, and ash colour. Plus, trousers have pockets! Women know the joy of wearing clothes that have pockets. 

 
When it comes to shirts, sticking to monochromes, hues of black and grey does wonders. However, you can always play around with a little light pink, powder blue or the lightest of yellows. Not only will it bring in some colour, but will also look more feminine. Besides, you can always ditch the cotton starched shirt and choose to wear silk blouses or silk buttoned-down shirts to pronounce that elegance.

Jackets

The jacket or the blazer is the most powerful ensemble. Choose a well-tailored jacket that enhances your curves and brings out your feminine side. You can always choose from denser materials to softer ones.
