Difference between Chennai and Bangalore

Chennai is the capital city of Tamil Nadu, an Indian state. It is a metropolitan city and holds fifth position in the list of most populous cities in India. It is situated on the Coromandel Coast of the Bay of Bengal. It was formerly called Madras, derived from the name of a village called Madraspattinam which was near Fort St. George. Bangalore, also called Bangaluru, is the capital of Karnataka. It is the third most populous city in India. It is on the list of global cities and has a rank of Beta World City. The word Bangalore is derived from bengaval-uru meaning the City of Guards in the old Kannada language.

You are right. When some one loses, it is known they cannot compete so try to compare and bring out un-related points. Madras was boasting of bus system, but, now Bangalore has more buses and a better network of buses. IT, or jobs, there is no comparison. Schools / Colleges do I have to say ? In India, there are only three prominent Bombay, New Delhi and Bangalore. Calcutta and Hyderabad, Pune, Ahmedabad have over taken Chennai. Chennai is 8th in reckoning.

Hi Arun, Please compare the cities based on facilities. Since both the cities are developed , thats the reason we want to compare which is best.

We must proud that indian cities are getting developed.

1.No. of drunkers more (Please visit sonipet, kanpur, and other places in india).Since chennai is cheapest city in india, people below middle class are more who consumes more alcohol.But women drunkers are less in chennai.

2.Bangalore is most liked city since they welcome with your language, but chennai retains their language, and it is not wrong in adopting the culture of the home which you visit.

4.Bangalore has international airport but it is located outside bangalore for which Rs1000 to be paid to reach one way

5.Chennai doesnt have cool climate like bangalore, but not bad for health and government can change the climate.

6.Chennai is medical capital of India, schools for all level of people to give best education, less transport fare, low cost of living from vegetables to petrol, government monitors the movie tickets of inox and multiplex maximum Rs150, but in bangalore, its Rs.350.

7.Bangalore welcomes outside but loosing their own identity, so outsider can manage easily, but money is needed everywhere.

8.Bangalore provides best IT jobs, cool climate, best shopping malls,pubs.

9.Chennai has many engineering colleges and outsider can communicate only in english, since there is no usage of hindi inside chennai.But Autodrivers are the rudest people(If the autodrivers are rudest in hindi speaking region, then think about this non-hindi speaking region)

10.Last but not least, public people question the government if anything goes wrong.But bangalore it never happens,since 70% of them are outsiders.Chennai has a place called sowcarpet which is called chota mumbai in wikipedia, like this many places in chennai hindi population living happily along with tamil for years.But in bangalore people may know the person from same street but not in different places of the city, coz nobody(outisders) trust each other. Tamil and Climate is the nightmare for outside, if they overcome, then thats the place gives indian happiness , not the western style happiness. I really enjoyed both the cities. Even i lived in many parts of India

hi I completly agree with sathish...he is perfect about both the cities...

Mr.Arun bangalore s fourth most populous city and chennai is fifth....But landwise chennai is fourth and Bangalore is fifth just search it in google.....if my points are wrong i will agree that bangalore s best.....

r u **** **** ......chennai comes no where near the 4th biggest city in asia.....check ur basic facts....GROW UP KID.....and screw ur film industry it is humourous as ****..........YOU PEOPLE ARE KNOW FOR YOUR RUDE AND UNFRIENDLY NATURE....being a north indian ........BANGALORE IS ANY DAY BETTER THA CHENNAI TO LIVE IN

jafar u r absolutely rite....most of the IT are shifting to coimbatore and chennai recently....bangalore we can say only for disco & pub as best city....but chennai is awarded as traditional city guys....only bachelors will say bangalore as a good city if they got married they will not stay there bcz they well known if they stay in bangalore they have to search their wives in club & pub... Please boys dnt compare chennai with bangalore.....i stayed in both cities but chennai is chennai....

if u dont know anything then dont say anything,,,,chennai is worse city in the world.i am living here from 4 years..in comparision to bangalore chennai is nothing...not even 1 percent..u people only lives in chennai,dont go any other city and always tell that our city is nice...

Please spend the same money in chennai which you need to live in bangalore for middle class life, you will get king's life.I think you are living in the place where below middle class people lives, so you cant expect everything big.

What the Fu.... you are talking about chennai who told its the chepest city

my dear Bro i m in the hart of chennai which called MOUNTRoad see its fear chennai is one of the worst city in my life still i travel so many places in india but i never seen Bad people like chennai

Bro just grow up chennai is chepist place before 10 year not now

wher r y............

And the one thing which i want to say about the chennai its a dustbin

here people dont want to speek hindi they just live in Tamil and want to die in tamil

Madrasi having money butno living sence if u try to communicate with them in hindi they will act like they didnt understand any thing

but if u use some abuse word mean (FAMOUS HINDI GALI) then see they will react soon

so Bro grow up HINDI is our national languge so u should know it otherwise its very difficult to survive outside the chennai

In shot chennai is the worst place for any one its a black spot of our country

and Rajni the old stupid person is the big f........

so jus be mature and accept the truth......

y the **** u r living in chennai... Just quit.... No one is begging you to stay in chennai... S we are tamilans... If u have guts speak the same thing in chennai to anyone..... Typing and posting anyone can do....

Fake life... Earning 50k and once in while guys goes to pub and say I often goes to pub.... crazy... Have u ever heard that hindi people learnt any south Indian language.. they never tried also.. So stop questioning tamil people... Bangalore is good city but losing it's originality.. very few people from karnataka.... This north india stupid A'es spoiling the beauty and culture of karnataka.. B'lore becoming LAS vegas.. only for enjoyment... Shame on people who are allowing this..

Chennai still maintains it culture.. No north indian can spoil this env.. Climate is hot here.. All kind of people r living here.. Only IT in B'lore and some garments.. Chennai known for its exports, IT and auto..

3 years before they built the electornic city bridge.. very poor architecture.. and very small city.. very less population.. Chennai is far better with this population..

One more thing u need to remember Bangalore losing it's beauty and climate compare to 7 yrs before.. Let's see how long it goes.......

Hey bro...have you been to Las Vegas? It seems like you have cow-dung for brains. Chennai still maintains its culture, what non-sense, the people of your culture act like vultures. Looting India is what you people do. Look at Jayalalitha, A. Raja, Kanimozhi Karunanidhi, Nithyananda and actress Ranjitha scandal. Your politicians are beggars, they beg for votes by giving free TV's, Rice, and other incentives by looting the tax payers money. Look what happened to the L.T.T.E; they died like dogs for killing one of our greatest Prime Ministers Mr. Rajeev Gandhi. Your city is dirty with filth and garbage all over the place. The stench is unbearable out there. The guys in Chennai speak horrible English and cannot even hold a conversation with a girl. They look at girls with so much lust in their eyes and have no guts to speak up. Look at some of your cheap movies. Your kind of humour is based on hitting people, insulting them for their skin colour as though you Tamilians are very fair.

Your auto drivers charge an exorbitant amount to go to a place that is close-by. It is so hot out there and your brains have become fried. Most of you suffer from sun-stroke and your brains are damaged. Bangalore is so pretty and we do not have to suffer from third-degree burns on our skin due to the sun rays like the way you do. Your public transport is quite decent but people stink like old yeast because of excessive sweating. You people are jealous of Bangalore because you can never match Bangalore in any sense. Karnataka was sinking in corruption due to Chief Minister Yeddyurappa and the people of this great state along with the Lokayukta took him off power and sent him to jail. Do you people of Tamil-Nadu have the guts to stand up to your politicians? All you can do is complain and feel jealous. I feel pity for foolish people like you. The words Chennai and Cheap have four letters in common. There is a four letter word that I would like to describe your city and that word is ****. You cheap tamilians in our Bangalore slums keep getting trashed by our Kannada boys because you get drunk and act like as though you are one of those cheap fellows in your flop movies. Get out of my great state your cheap porkees. This message is not addressed to the decent Tamilians in the city of Bangalore or anywhere else in the world. It is a message that needs to be sent across to all those cheap, third-class, and dirty Tamilians who ruin my beautiful city of Bangalore.
