Nareesh wasn’t quite as excited about the IT industry, part of this was probably because he was a rickshaw driver (Indian cab driver). This has caused terrible traffic making his job that much harder. Also according to Nareesh the rich people have gotten richer and the poor even poorer. More offices and cellular towers have been built which has caused more space for roads to be taken up. One positive effect is that there are more customers that need to navigate the roads that’s where Nareesh plays his part in the IT business. All and all he thinks that Bangalore has grown too fast for the government to handle.
