Bangalore has a singular charm of arousing the interest of both Indians and foreigners in its checkered history. Its strategic position, close to the borders of three states, has played a great part in influencing the history of peninsular India. It is interesting to know that Bangalore had been a pawn on the chessboard of Indian intrigues. Kempe Gowda built it. The Bijapur Sultanate conquered it. The Moghuls sold it. Chikkadevaraja Wodeyar purchased it for Rupees 3,00,000. It was the personal jagir (property) of Shahji Bhonsley and Haider Ali, two great historical personalities, at different periods in its history.

Manufacturers like him believe that just like the technology boom that swept across cities like Bangalore in the last decade, there will be a textiles boom in India in the coming years following the dismantling of the Multi-Fibre Agreement on international textiles trade.

In the academic study of economics, heavy industries are often differentiated from light industries as heavy industries are capital intensive, and light industries are labor intensive. Light industries are easier to relocate than heavy industry, and can be built with less investment.

This definition is not exclusive, however, as some sources refer to heavy industries as referring to the weight or volume of the products handled. The British Geographic Society, for example, listed several potential ways of measuring heavy versus light industry. One measure is the weight per cost of their products. For instance, one dollar buys more mass of steel or fuel than of drugs or textiles. Another is the weight of material handled per employee or the cost of materials as a proportion of gross value output.

Heavy industry can be also understood as that which produces products for other industries instead of end users. For example, steel mills or chemical plants are good examples of heavy industry facilities
Bangalore developed its Engineering Educational Institutions over the last century and formed the nucleus of skilled manpower for the primarily Government Engineering companies. Amongst them Hindustan Machine Tools, Bharat Electronics Limited and Indian Telephone Industries. In the private sector, Motor Industries Company better known as MICO the automotive components manufacturer, a subsidiary of Robert Bosch GmbH of Germany and WIDIA the machine tool manufacturer.These companies employing together over 50,000 skilled employees developed their “old economy” products with great success.

However, the last ten years-possibly less-have seen the emergence of the new economy. Bangalore is leading the country in the development of software companies of world class. The two stars are Infosys Technologies and WIPRO. These companies have drawn from the same source-the excellent educational centers of Bangalore. Where the engineering companies looked primarily for male employees, the new software companies have opened up a whole new field of opportunity for the women employees- their percentage in the software companies being as high as 25%. These companies have also through their rapid growth developed a number of highly rewarded employees through their generous stock option schemes. A first in India and an important part in the democratization process of industrial ownership in India
Bangalore is also a leader in exports to different parts of the world. It’s textile exports, especially silk are very high and account for a large portion of state revenue. Due to a large number of granite quarries in and around the city granite exports are also very high. Then there is sandalwood and agarbattis (incense sticks) that are also thriving businesses and international exports. Clearly, these are areas of high growth that will see significant developments in the years to come

It is imaginable that the next phase of development in Bangalore will marry both software and engineering hardware skills to produce intelligent products like the new generation of white and brown goods, electronic controlled components to make cars and driving safe and more economical

Bangalore has the foundation to be the industrial leader in India for the new millennium.
