Oil marketing companies (OMC) in Bengaluru maintained the city's petrol prices at Rs. 111.09 per litre on Thursday for the seventh consecutive week. However, when compared to other metros petrol in the city remains more expensive

Fuel prices first started soaring in late March - after elections in five states - and breached the 100 mark in nearly all cities, including Bengaluru.

Its streets are lined with art cafes, home décor outlets, ateliers, art galleries, pottery studios, dance halls and high-end boutiques, whose facades and interiors are as interesting and experimental as the wares they deal in. Interestingly, all of these fancy establishments are housed in re-purposed warehouse buildings, which still have metal roofs.
